Appreciate your guidance Steve, just those two fans have made an unbelievable difference. I wish Corsair would fit their Hydro units with proper fans and just charge the relevant amount for the whole unit. I'm hooked on these performance fans though now, got to get some more...

I think they make some regular case fans too. Those are SP fans (Static Pressure for radiators). They will probably work about as well as a case fan though unless the case fans put out more air.

Many people think fans are just fans until they try a quality fan.
Once tried they don't complain about the price.
When I installed my H80 with the stock fans I only run it a few minutes and went to using the other computer until new fans came in.

I use Phantek fans in my Primo case and they are also great fans. They are a little hard to come but because they seem to be sold out all the time.

Fans | Phanteks

The next fans I going to try is the ones Steve uses.
The new Noctura industrial fans. I will have to add a fan controller because 3000 rpm is way to high. I can live with up to 1600 rpm.
14 fans at 3000 rpm would make my case fly and do it noisily.

Next up is the 980 Classy. I'd better ask Derek to move this to custom builds, the thread's morphed a little bit...

All fitted. The difference in my HDD temps is pretty noticeable (around 5C) and it's knocked a couple of degrees of my CPU temp too. It will be interesting to how it affects the CPU temps while gaming, I've only run Battlefiled 4 once since fitting the i7-4790k and the H80i and temps peaked at 55C on a full 64-player map on Zavod 311.

Can't wait to get benchmarking that with the 4790k Doug. I'm going to have to look at learning about OCing my CPU now.

Corsair H80i Problems
Got a Corsair H80i installed on a ASUS P8Ztt-V Pro board with a 3770K, all stock settings except for RAM set to specs. Connected the Corsair Link dingle berry cable and fans to the pump Y-connector. I downloaded the Link software from the Corsair site so I assume it's the newest version....

Thermal Paste
After reading some good reports on Shin Etsu thermal paste, I bought some, but am having a lot of problems with getting it to spread properly. It tends to clump together, and when forcing it out, it leaves such a thin covering that the lettering on the CPU is still plainly visible. I'm about to...

Thermal paste
Hey guys, So I was hoping to get some clarification (as well as personal opinions) on thermal paste application. I have heard many different ways of applying thermal paste, and I am guessing they all work. The real question is, how MUCH? I just have a feeling I put on TOO much on my new...

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
