Default Push/Pull Fan setup

Hey guys so I got this idea the other day when I was mounting my H50. "My cooling is Ok but not Great so why don't I setup push/pull fans on the chassi too?" Is this totally unnecessary and idiotic or ?

I got spare fans that I'm not using, and I was thinking of putting nylon webbing over the intake fans so they don't suck in dust.

What do you guys think?

You can try it, but I wouldn't expect much. And it's defeating the so-called "Quiet Computing" aspect of water cooling. Overall the H50 is a poor choice for cooling at $80+. What it needs is a larger radiator and the parts separated for better air management. But it's not made to be modified and it will cost more to modify it than it's worth. I will suggest selling the H50 after you save up a little more cash and going all out with a real water-cooling setup or a high-end air setup.

Ah, alright. Yea I was expecting more from this H50, too bad my chassi is too small for a larger radiator. I'll probably go back to air cooling. Got any suggestions for a "high-end" air cooler to my i7?

This is a great cooler but it really needs to be lapped.
Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev. A - Inet.se

Heatsink Lapping Guide

This would be my next choice and it doesn't need to be Lapped.
Prolimatech Megahalems - Inet.se

Both of those heatsinks require a 120mm fan.

This is also a good heatsink and it doesn't need Lapping and it comes with fans.
