Xclio A380 and H50 -
| posts: 81 | Location: MT
Hello all, I have been seriously considering getting an H50 in anticipation of a possible CPU upgrade this winter. My problem is that I don't think the p/p configuration would work well in my A380 case without either modding the side 250mm fan for clearance, or modding the case for an exterior radiator mounting setup. I originally wanted to use 2 Ultra Kaze's running at full 3000RPM, but it seems that even with only one Kaze inside the case, the fan and rad don't have enough clearance to fit.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience mounting the 250mm fan on the outside of the case. Also, are 2 Kaze's overkill for an H50? I do have a CoolerMaster R4-L2S-122B-GP 120mm I'm not using, but I have no idea if the CFM is comparable with the stock fan that comes with the H50.
Also, I so far seem to have a positive pressure case, as I am running both 250mm fans full. Supposedly each 250mm is running 95CFM. I have one Kaze running exhaust at full 130CFM, which is slightly helped by my PSU having an 80mm intake that functions for exhaust as well.
Any thoughts? I'd rather not dremel a hole big enough to run the radiator outside of the case.
