FriedRice84 Posted October 4, 2009 Share Posted October 4, 2009 Just saying hi! I just ordered parts for a new Core i5 system and was considering the H50 for my CPU cooling solution. I know that it's recommended that I have the fan on the radiator acting as an intake for best results. There's one problem with that though. My Silverstone RV02 has 3 180mm intakes and a single 120mm exhaust. The case is a very high positive airflow case. If I use the H50 as recommended, I don't see a way of rearranging the fans in the case to accommodate the H50. If I change one of my intakes on the RV02, it'll seriously mess up the air flow in the case. The air inside the case is VERY cool even with the fans on low so it might help. So, the only choice I can see is to mount the H50 as an exhaust and use a push/pull configuration. Here's a pic of the interior the RV02 if anyone doesn't know what it looks like http://www.testfreaks.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/windowslivewritersilverstoneravenrv02iscomimgsooninthemid-797crv02-features-2.jpg Will doing that negate the performance hit of using the H50 as an exhaust? I'd really appreciate the help guys! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
