Well, kudos to this fantastic brand - this thread is now possibly the biggest and most viewed thread on OCN. It represents a massive wealth of knowledge on the H40, H50, H60, H80, H100,H60i,H80i,H100i

What is the fluid inside the unit?

Should I mount my radiator in an exhaust of intake configuration?

Basically, running your fan/radiator setup as intake will give you lower temperatures than an exhaust setup - this is because the radiator is being fed cool air from outside the case.
However, the H-series are very good at sending a lot of heat out of that radiator, and if you run it as an intake then you will be sending a lot of hot air into your case - this might be detrimental, especially if you have graphics cards with struggling stock coolers.
Personally, I prefer to run my unit in exhaust for better health of my system - and if you have a good amount of intake into your case somewhere near your radiator, you'll see very little temperature difference between intake and exhaust.
Here is a blog directly from Corsair; it includes some of the testing they did on Push/Pull setups.
I don't like the idea of all that water near my components, what if it leaks?

What is the thermal tape that comes with the H50?

What speed does the pump run at?

here's mine.. just put it in today and I've realized about a 20C drop in temps over the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 HS/F.. I'm impressed!

Attachment 129888

With 4 instances of World Community Grid running I went from 59c to 38c. Nice..

Im here tooo. Please add me....just a quick question guys...how much tim is required for this setup to work optimally. I am using mx2 with the spread method, so a very thin layer...but looking at the copper plate and the finish on it, I would think more would be required.

I tried applying the MX2 a few times before I was happy. I ended up putting 5 small dots on the chip and then mounting H50. Seemed to give the best result (by observation), if you're not hitting stupid temperatures then you probably did it fine.
