Yeah I might just scrap the whole WCing idea. I went from a PA120.3 setup with a Fuzion GTX block and MXP 655 to TRUE, then to a Megahalem. Then when I picked up the Scout, I grabbed the H50 thinking it would be on par with the Megahalem while freeing up some space inside the case. But as soon as I looked at the actual H50, I started to get the feeling it was not going to be efficient enough to cool my CPU. The H50 might be great for most chips, but mine runs hot.

Why is that?

Also, would you have a photo of your case with the Noctua? I'm curious what the spacing looks like especially since you also have an EVGA as well which are notorious for having the CPU socket way high.

Myself, I've just got turbo disabled.

[edit] Wait am I missing something? You've got an i7 920 on an LGA 1156 mobo?

[edit 2] Please disregard prior comments on EVGA - I was looking at another person's sig lols.

I really wanted to also use 25mm shrouds (quiter and more efficient airflow). But to run the shrouds, I would need to run the rad at the front of the case. And to do that I would need to replace the tubing because the stock tubing is too short.

I wasn't sure if the case would even fit my Rampage II Extreme since it is an eATX case which is 10.6" wide (~ 1" wider then standard ATX). It turns out the motherboard just fits! I ended up removing the HDD cage so I can mount a 120mm rad (trying to get the H50 to work, but I need to replace the tubing as the kit tubing is too short).

Here are pics showing just how tight of a fit the case is for the eATX motherboard:





Now I am trying to decide, should I mod the H50 or should I just order a 120mm rad with integrated res, a Heatkiller and an MCP355.

I would go with the H-50 to keep the integrity of the case and maybe add a higher Velocity Fan Blow hole fan and have 2 fans on the doors blowing on your video cards.. Those don't have to be high velocity since the 140 in the front is throwing some wind in the case.

Secondly is there enough room for the PSU with this configuration.. Please post again when you finish your build.. This is very Fascinating.

Another Idea for water cooling is MLbrottan's build.. He put a Triple Rad in his.

Speedstep drops your voltage and multiplier on idle so that it consumes less power. I know most people recommend turining it off, but it does drop idle temperatures considerably.

No, the MSI X58 Pro-E is an LGA 1366 board. Here's the best picture I could find. There's about only 1-2 mm of space between the heatsink fan clips and the exhaust fan, but it doest fit.

I say if the Pump can handle the extra resistance then go for it... Maybe one rad in the front drive bay area and the other in the usual spot.

That picture was really intended for my my H50 set up if you read a few pages back lol.

But what can always do its cut out the grill on the case
mount an external 120mm fan> shroud> rad >fan its a little ghetto but gets the job done.

If you are lucky you might get that to fit with the tubes coming out the bottom. Bear in mind the H50 rad is a good 15mm+- larger top and bottom than a 120mm fan, so it would be ALOT closer to the top 140mm exhaust fan.
