H50 Corsair Liquid Cooler Replacement

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well after watching my temperatures Ideal at 40-58C it struck me that something was wrong. I ran prime for abut 10 minutes and it went all the way up to 95C. Played BF4 last night and it hit 100C after 45 minutes of play and completely shut down the computer with the blue screen. I am looking to replace the cooler since I believe it is not working anymore. What would be a great replacement CPU fan replacement? I have a i7-950 and a x58 sabertooth board along with a full HAF912 case.

Has a liquid cooler gone out with any of you guys? Thanks

I think the 912 case will support a h100,,,,also what are the RPMs for your h50 saying

CLC/AIO do have a history of pump failures, especially after a year or two.

Good air cooling is better than H50 and almost never go bad. Maybe a fan after several years but fans are easy to replace. Depending on what RAM you have most any of the top air coolers will fit. All are withing a few degrees of each other.

Cooler size comparison (Width x Depth x Height looking from front of case with motherboard laying flat)

Akasa Medusa .= . 8x 6mm pipes 144x129.5x163mm w/ 140mm & 120mm PWM fans 49.6mm*
K2 / Assassin . = . 8x 6mm pipes 140x128x158mm 146x154x160mm w/ 120mm & 140mm PWM fans43.2mm*
Dark Rock Pro 2 =. 7x 6mm pipes 133x124x166mm 133x149x166mm w/ 120mm & 135mm PWM fans
NH-D14 . . . . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 140x130x160mm 140x158x160mm w/ 120mm & 140mm fans44mm*
NH-U14S . . . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 150x52x165mm plus fans base offset 2mm 41mm*
PH-TC14PE. . = . . 5x 8mm pipes 140x159x171mm w/ 2x 140mm fans, PWM adaptor40-45mm*
Megahalem. . = . . 6x 6mm pipes 130x74x158.7mm plus fans 40mm*
HE01 . . . . .= . . . 6x 6mm pipes 140x119x160mm w/ 140x38mm PWM fan 42mm*
Archon SB-E. . = . 8x 6mm pipes 155x53.6x170.2mm plus fans 34.45mm*
Silver Arrow . = . . 4x 8mm pipes 147x123x163mm 151x149x168mm w/ 2x 140mm Fans 40.87mm*
SA SB-E . . . .= . . 8x 6mm pipes 155x105x164mm 170x130x170mm w/ 140mm & 150mm PWM fans 31.9/39/46mm**
SA SB-E Extreme . 8x 6mm pipes 155x105x164mm 155x130x165mm w/fans Smaller because of 140mm fan vs 150mm fan.


*cooler base to bottom fin. (add 8mm for motherboard to bottom fin.)
**fins are at 3 different levels

K2, D14 & HE01 are about same size cooler.
140mm fans can be problematic with ram clearance.
All can interfere with PCI-e slots 1 & 2
SA SB-E is widest by 15mm. 170mm with TY-150 fan in middle. TY-150 is 169x151mm
SA SB-E Extreme is 155mm wide with TY-143 fan in middle. TY-14x fans are 151x140mm.

Well I cleaned out my case which wasn't all that dusty after almost 3 years and bought a H60 liquid cooler. I crossed my fingers when I ran intel burn test and it worked. My temps went from 90C to about 65-70 under full load which I am happy! Thanks for the ideas gents!
