Corsair H60 question

Go to solution Solved by -rascal-,

@Ragingsilver

 

Well first, you are SUCKING air into the radiator ... at least currently how your fan is set-up it looks like.

 

Second, you are pulling air in through the radiator.

The radiator restricts airflow, reducing the STATIC PRESSURE of the air coming out the other side, hence the tissue moves very little.

 

Your current fan profile, and CPU temperature of 45*C, your fan is spinning at less than ~40%.

Airflow, and static pressure is much lower compared to running at a higher speed, or full 100%.

 

Your top EXHAUST fans has no radiator in front of it, so it will move more air.

Your radiator fan is running as INTAKE and your top fans are running as EXHAUST, so yes, the air coming out of the case from the top will be warm.

Hi guys,

I've had my new custom built PC for a few months now and I opted to pick a Corsair H60i AIO for the first time over a standard air cooler. Whilst it is working fine I'm worried about the fan on it. Every case fan is running and when I place a piece of tissue near them they either blow away or pull in. The fan on my AIO however doesn't do either very well and is placed on the back of the PC case. Yes it is spinning, just not at all very fast. Is it set up right?

 

Doesn't it make more sense to put the fan on the other side? to blow the heat through and out the back?

Not the answer I was looking for. I put the tissue behind the case and it wasn't pulling or pushing air out. My case blow a lot of hot air out the top though when gaming.

What do you have the fan curve set at?
