Absolute CRAP H50 temps - Page 10

post #91 of 137
The fact that your temps changed 6C just by moving it into the case says to me that you have bad case airflow. You keep saying 160cfm, but where you have them and what's blocking them is much more important. Not to mention, a lot of fans are completely over-rated in stats.

I've had my H50 installed for about a month now, and over that time the temperatures haven't really improved with the TIM setting in. On average it's about 5C cooler than my arctic freezer air cooler was, though it really depends on the room temperature. When the room is colder, I've been getting a bigger gap between the temps I would have seen on my air cooler, but the hotter the room is, the closer the gap is between them.

I'm running it with push-pull too. So far my impression is that it is very hit & miss and competes with better midrange air coolers. That and... it's made me decide that the next thing I'll be investing in is proper water cooling.

Cold room: Idle 29 - 34C Gaming Load 56C
Warm room: Idle 37 - 42C Gaming Load 60 - 70C

That's just what I was saying. If you only have one radiator and limited water, ambient room temps are the key. I personally couldn't have one, it's 100F by noon this time of year.

Very good post. The H50 compares to medium/high quality air coolers, and it does so at medium/high quality price. It provides adequate cooling on a low profile (relatively). It's definitely not meant to compare to full "water cooling" loop, but why should it? Those are hundreds of dollars.

At 40 bucks, its cheaper than high end air coolers and cools nearly as well. Factor in good fans, which you'd have to do with high end air and that's a wash. Now also factor in the size for smaller cases and no need to hang 14lbs of sink off the motherboard and its clearly a better buy. No one ever said this would cool as well as a real loop so that's not an argument. Had my 2500k @ 4.8 @ 1.44v load temps low/mid 70s. That's pretty solid to me.

You'll see better temps than the 512 when you get the hot part of the prime testing where it goes up 10 c.

What's with all the people going "HURR DURR I GET 50C MAX LOAWL".

The temperature of your room matters. Your fluid can only get as cold as the air cooling it. Video cards and northbridges can heat up the air intake through the radiator. I would orient the fans to suck in room temperature air and disperse the heat in your case, which is not so much a big deal anymore since you have no airflow reliant heatsinks in your case.

You say you can't get the rad hoses on the bottom because of the hoses?

Mount the rad (pipes down) and rotate the pump/hs into place. Somwhere in the H50/60/70 thread people talk about pump hoses at 9 or 6 o'clock possibly give better temps as well. And shroud it for sure if you can.
