Cryorig m9i second fan

Hi all,

So, this comes with a bracket to add a second fan, is it worth it?

Will be building next week, would only cost a few pounds to get a 92mm fan to attach, would most likely be an Arctic f9 pwm.

Cheers

Most likely, no. I'd recommend installing the cooler first and then decide if you're comfortable with the temps you get.

But I can get a fan for about 3 pounds and not have to pay delivery if I order with another part!

Can't make it worse right?

I didn't expect it to be that cheap. For that price, I'd buy it and check noise/temps to see if it's worth it. If not, just keep it as a spare.

It shouldn't make it worse, unless it were to somehow block airflow.

You can grab it and check temps with one fan to compare with two fans.

In theory, two fans basically would help move more air because one fan would blow air through the Heat-Sink of the CPU Cooler, while the other fan would receive and suck that air to push it towards your rear case fan and exhausting it out of your case.

Case fans are like windmills the more you have, the greater of an energy you will have, to help generate a greater momentum for an even stronger airflow.

In other other words it should help

Ideally, you'll want to use the same fans (or at least same RPM/Airflow), or you could get turbulence which can indeed decrease performance. Either way it won't make a massive, if even noticeable, difference.

Cheers, I got a cheap fan to add to the back, front is 2000rpm and back is 1800. Might set the back on a steeper curve so up until full load its running at a faster %.

An experiment for a 3 quid fan, will do some tests with and without it attached and see I guess!

Can you share the results? I ma interested in this cooler too. Thanks.

I am going to do some temp testing tonight or tomorrow night using a medium stress test (ROG Realbench I think) and will update results in my build when done.

Added to my build if you're interested!
