Right.You don't want to run the Corsair fans at 100%, because they're
"vacuum cleaner fans". They're like the old Dell fans, designed
to work into a high resistance load, and when spooled up,
would be obnoxious. (Things would be different, if Corsair
selected a larger fin spacing on the cooler, but that
in turn reduces cooler performance. The vacuum cleaner
design idea, is for high performance systems.)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler,
Sweet setup. Shouldn't be awhile before considering "modifications,"
were those Dynatrons exhibit wear (at $109US, holy cow, awhile...or
more). Its self-contained water pump (not adjustable) might be
another matter, tho.
Believe I may have bought a Dynatron fan before, or at least heard of
That intricate of modern modular system, when retrospectively looking
at just about a whole case, in itself, to contain some of the older
water systems, of course, PWM and advancements being what they are...
Anything less than that pump, though, I'd be tempted or think to
purchasing it with a mind to swapping stock voltage controlled fans
(for finding one with a suitable rating). Only the H105 isn't so much
about that;- looking over that product reminds me of higher,
higher-end passive heatwick pipes for that grade of processor, its
intent, nor would come especially cheap, either...well within or near
to H105 costs.
Saying earlier in some unrelated context I'd buy, offhand, a
self-contained waterblock CPU cooler, all else being equal (to my
thinking, provided quite a few steps below in processors, considering
the H105's intents, for roundabout sub-$50 purposes).
The H105, however, I'd be busy for some time collecting information
and making notes from reviews. Quite. I haven't even have half a
mind for a suitable processor, in the first place, to place the class
of cooling with. (Being all I've ever used, I'd probably be skewed to
air;- Piped heatwicking, withstanding, water in any volume would be a
different perspective, to say the least.)
