  1. I have 1 120 mm. TT turbofan as back exhaust, 1 top back 120 mm. 1200 rpm Corsair Case fan , 1 TT 120 mm. 1200 rpm case front intake, and 2 more 120 mm. Corsair 1200 rpm front. I used to have the H60 AIO in the front. Also, I recently added a third front fan, and the temps are better now (the one with red leds). I did some testing with the 2 different configurations and here are the results: H60 push/ Mugen Pull 37c-39c idle 1600rpm push h60 fan 1200rpm pull mugen Max Heat Cinebench 3 Cycles: 73c Max Heat Prime 95 (Maximum Power-Heat-CPU Stress) 12 mins: 79c Mugen Push (Mugen stock setup) 35c-45c idle 1150rpm push mugen Max Heat Cinebench 3 Cycles: 75c Max Heat Prime 95 (Maximum Power-Heat-CPU Stress) 12 mins: 83c
  2. Hi, I recently changed an old H60 which was working fine for a Mugen 5, mostly because it's 10 years old and it surpassed its lifespan. I have a Ryzen 3600. Temps with the Mugen 5 are very similar, generally a little lower at load, almost the same or higher at idle, but it has some spikes that weren't present with the old AIO. I decided to add the H60 120 mm. cooler to the heatsink for a push/pull config. Since it has higher RPM, right now the Mugen fan is as pull, and the H60's as push. I don't see a noticebeable improvement, if any at all. Since I have a Corsair Spec Alpha case, changing the coolers is a considerable effort, 'cause I have to remove the top exhaust fan, and the clips with the H60 fan are really hard to take out (it's much tighter than the stock fan). Do you think it would be better to take out the H60's fan and leave the Mugen with the stock as push, or leave the push/pull with the H60's fan? BTW by reading reviews I thought that changing the H60 to a Mugen 5 would be an upgrade, but it was more like a side-grade, so I'm kinda dissapointed. Temps at idle are between 39-50, 72 after running Cinebench R15, and 79-82 with Prime95 at maximum heat with ocassional spikes to 88.
