    Question Corsair Airflow Pro and Fans for H70 and GTX 580 backplate

    well guys my new build is now overclocked to 4.02ghz and running well, its fairly cool running Aion at 45 celsius, my ram isnt at 1600 anymore due to the multiplier but as this wont make any real world difference im happy with the OC.

    My H70 however is loud and I think its safe to assume the fans on it arent all that great. Does anyone have any recommendations for it?

    I also looked at the corsair airflow pro and the fans they make for the dominator ram, I cant find all that many reviews about its and for the fan and the airflow pro its close to 100 bucks so if anyone has one just let me know if its a cool accessory.

    I also just ordered the evga gtx 580 backplate (solely because it looks cool) I heard it helps temps a bit too is this true? It was 20 bucks so even if it offers no benifit it still makes my card look cool

    Thanks everyone

    1) if you run your Bclk at 200 and 20x multi the your ram will be 1600Mhz
    2) you can replace it with aftermarket fans, Scythe S-Flex has fluid bearing, it's muffer quiet
    3) forget about ram fan, why you need it when you are not overclocking your ram? and 1.65v is not that hot either, those heatsink works pretty good....well unless you want bling.
    4) well it's depend on the design, if it's designed as dual functional (support/heatspread) then it helps to cool the card but I think it's full off hot air if whoever told you so.

    Lets me tell you why;
    a) if the backplate touch the back of the card which it means also touch all the solder joints, the card will be shorted. Unless its designed to have stepped base like water block to touch every individual chips, I doubted.

    b) when you slap on a fullcover block it covers all the most crucial regions and watercooled, why you have to use a passive aircooled heatspread? Because this will acted as heater instead of cooler.

    c) I do have a backplate for the GTX480 from EK and it has standoff at each mounting screw hole to keep the backplate off the PCB few minimeters.

    So backplate is just for look and support, no heatsink here unless it was design as heatspreader.

    The heatsinc is the evga one they just released, I just got it for bling

    Will setting my ram at 1600 make any difference for my performance? (Real world)

    And those fans are they a better choice than gentle typhoons?

    personally I never use the typhoons but it's seem getting popular.

    what is your current ram speed?

    You're probably won't notice the performance different in real world but in benchmark though.

    Ram speed is 1333

    Which rpm fan should I get, the h70 has a pretty dense rad and ill be putting the fans in push pull don't rads make even quiet fans louder?

    that rad needs high flow fan, you should get at least 1800rpm or higher. I can't remember the stock rpm but you shouldn't less than stock.

    High density fins make loud noises.
