Once i get this installed i want to use the H50 as a intake fan bringing in air from either the front or side. i dont think ill be able to do the front as with my dvd burner and fan controller, i cant get rad where it needs to be, so im left with installing the rad on the window? i would like to keep the air flow as normal as it could be. Im running the h50 in my full tower as a exhaust out the rear and seems to be doing ok(as in ok as just like my 92mm xiggy. Is there any comparisions between the h50 and the 212+? Once i get this modding done i will actually swap out the H50 for a push/pull 212+ and see what temps i get.

just another question, does anyone want me to do sometype of build log for all this modding im doing? or just a waste?
I think work logs are helpful, especially since you're doing things that are sort of an FAQ. Go get'em Danny!

ok, will do, gonna take a lot of pics today, its actually going pretty smooth cutting out the grill, takes about 15-20 secs per hole to cut the connecting metal. Looks like ****, but will be sanding and buffing the hell out of it then painting it so it looks normal...although i might get the bug and do some painting....would love to paint it blue just for the hell of it.

On a side note, my wife is trying to convince me when we move in the summer for her job, to get a 4 bedroom(or something with a basement/garage) and make the 4th room a computer workshop so i can get my business license and build/work on computers again. I love this woman.

Trying to convince you? I think she needs an honorary membership for that statement! Are you moving to Spokane?

On to a different topic. While I'm waiting for my MOBO to get here on Tues. I figured I'd lap and polish my H50. I removed the water block by removing these screws. Then I propped up the pump head so as not to lose any coolant (lost a little anyway) and ran it 100 times in each axis direction using 400grit and then straight to 1500grit and finished it off with some Blue Magic Metal Polish Creme available at most auto parts stores. turned out purty good.



You can see my dog on my couch about 8 feet from the unit. Yes I have a couch in my garage.


The factory finish is flat but laden with machine marks. Hopefully this'll drop temps a couple of degrees, but won't know until Tues.

That's right I remember now. Don't know why I was thinking Spokane.

"a few months ago some where in this thread some one posted a link to and a picture (im almost positive it was Gen Enigma) an electrical contact that attached to the side panel of computer cases eliminating the need to have wires run from your side window fans to the rest of the case."

No where does he say terminal block.
You're right and I ran out of space for other things and I never got any comments on it so I thought it was a waste of space so I trashed it and put something else in its place. I believe it was an auto part for a door lock curcuit or lighting or something. I cant find it anymore but I will look for it again since we need it.
