    Hi guys how are you?

    I have the H100 cooler running at my 3770k @4.5

    There is only 2 fans on it, the stock ones that comes with the cooler

    I was thinking to or buy another 2 fans and make the push/pull system or buy 4 new fans is it worth?

    If yes wich fans do you reccomend for the H100, noise is not a problem for me, with the 2 stock coolers that comes the H100 i put on Max with no problem

    I know that CFM to WC is not the most important thing to see, that's why i'm here to ask the pro's, the most important is the Fan static pressure right?

    The stock H100 fans are good? Some people say yes, another say no, so confused...

    Anyway, i know that i'll get the best solution to my cooler rig with you guys

    Thanks

    If money aint a thing, get the Noctua NF-F12 fans

    If on a budget, the Scythe AP-15 fans or the Corsair SP120 High Performance fans will do.

    Thanks

    Yes, the fans I listed are better than the ones that come with the H100.


    IMO, the push/pull is worth it. But your results will vary.

    The Scythe and Corsair fans are on par with each other performance wise. Just get whichever is cheaper.

    The difference for me is that Sp120 i can easy find here in Brazil, my country, this other one i`ll have to import from USA

    But like you said the performance differnce is almost 0 right? So for my case the best solutions is 4 Sp 120 because i can find near home?

    Or even the noctua one i`ll have to import, but if the difference worth i`ll get the noctuas, i`ll pay a couple more i know

    The Noctuas are the best, but if the Corsair fans are available in your area then get those instead.

    +1 for the Noctua's but I've also had very good results with Scythe fans as well.

    I have 4 Noctua's on my H100 controlled by a quality fan controller. At 700 RPM they are silent so when your watching a film or just surfing the web you can make them silent. At 1300RPM you can hear them but they will be so much more quieter then the stock fans you have at the moment.

    But this noctua one will be better than the stock ones even with lower RPM and static pressure?

    I think i`ll buy for of this noctuas, what do you think?

    First off sorry OP for thread jacking.

    Phase how are those SP120's in a pull only config as that is what I'm planing (I like how they look over the noctua and I can get two corsairs for the price of one noctua)?

    No problem man :)

    A lot of guys are talking abou this one too: Cougar CF-V12HP 120MM PWM

    They are saying that this one is better than Noctuas and cheaper, do you confirm guys?

    Not sure about pull, but Corsair recommends them to be in either a push config or push/pull.

    Well my 240 will be a push config but don't have the room for push pull on the top rad but the alphacool rads aren't very dense fpi so I may just use a pair of sp120's on the 240 and three AF120's on the 360. That and I will try and get a fair amount of positive case pressure.

    The cougars that i said Cougar CF-V12HP 120MM PWM is better than Noctuas, you have recommended, they are almost the same price and some guys told me to take a look at cougar`s one, now i`m confused again :)
