Hi!

I have just bought a Corsair Obsidian 500D SE. It comes with 3 LL fans on the front and I have added one more as exhaust in the back.

I have water cooling H115i RGB Platinum mounted at the top.

I'm using this diagram:


Being 1, 2 and 3 in the hub my front fans from top to bottom and 4 in the hub the rear fan.

I'm trying to setup iCue/Commander PRO so after ligthing 1, 2 and 3 fans it lights the H115i and at the last the 4 fan.
But it lights 1, 2, 3, 4 and at last H115i RGB. As the H115i RGB is in the middle of the box, it would be nicer to light it between the last front fan and the rear one.

Is it possible?

I cant help with that buddy.. its down to how the software works.. the only way around it would be to run all fans off of the Same RGB Fan LED Hub. but as you have LL and ML RGB fans it would not play ball with sequential lighting effects correctly...

Thank you anyway! I guessed it was not possible, at least without changing all fans to be the same type. Thanks!

It would be nice to be able to set where it is each fan in the case in iCue so it could sync better the effects.

The front panel of the 500 SE is flat as well. Curved TG is extremely expensive as yields are very low.

Great thread Mr. Zotty. Planing to install the H150i with the included ML120 fans together with the LL120 as an push/pull. What’s the best way to do this? I’ve got the Obsidian 500SE RGB chassis.

HI Buddy.. you would run the ML fans from the H150i and the LL fans from the supplied Commander Pro that comes with your Case

Default Fan setup

@Zotty , Hey there! I've seen all your excellent advice all over these forums and decided to ask you a few questions myself :)

I have a Corsair Obsidian 500d RGB SE Case with the h150i mounted up front with 3 LL120's in front of it as intake. I also have 2xLL140's up top as exhaust and a LL120 in the rear as exhaust.

My system is:

Intel Core i9 9900k - stock speeds
EVGA GTX 1080 ti SC2 (Soon to be replaced with a 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra)
32GB 3600mhz Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro
1 TB nVME m.2

My questions..

1) Would a push/pull config for my h150i be worth it in terms of performance?

2) Would switching my two LL140 fans up top to intake improve my temps? Doing this would leave *only* my rear LL120 as exhaust.

I'm trying to make sure my soon to be RTX 2080 ti is properly cooled. :)

Thanks!!

-Lee

Hi buddy....


1, i would be a liar if i said it made amazing differences... lol.. sure does look good though ;)

2, i run mine with front and top as intake (h150i in front) but mainly to reduce dust. i didnt see much difference in temps aside from gpu running a little lower in temps...

I've got a pretty similar setup. I had a push/pull on an H150i in the front and frankly it sucked. The front is too restrictive to put a radiator in there. I bought a 3X120 bracket from the 570 series case and mounted the H150i in the top. I had hoped to use the stock fan bracket to run 3x120's in it but with the H150 up to there isn't enough clearance for 3 fan in front. I had to resort to running 2X140's.

After that my CPU, i9900K idles about 6°cooler, load temps are similar, but fans run slower based on the custom curve I have, same one as in my previous setup.

My 2080Ti idles about 4° cooler, but load temps are an astonishing 15° lower and the fans are at least 2 orders of magnitude quieter. It's extremely noticeable. There just wasn't enough air coming into the case to keep the card cooled.

Using the very scientific method of opening the side panel and putting my hand behind the fans showed that the intake airflow was massively increased.
