Picked up my H50 yesterday at BestBuy (what a deal! 60 bucks!) and installed last night. I didn't understand why I had to remove my existing backplate, which seemed perfectly capable (and the small screws fit in it, too), buit otherwise installation was no problem. I am using the Corsair fan and an ACRyan Blackfire 4 in push/pull, as exhaust. Will probably flip them around tonight after I run some testing for temps, and might replace the ACRyan with the Dark Knight fan (3rd pic), painted UV green & UV Led modded -- I think the CFMs are better, and it's a quieter fan. No idle #s yet, overall I'd say 6-10 degrees lower, on my phII 940 @ 3675, and haven't gone over 47.

Your temps are much better than mine and we have the same motherboard and processor. Where did you find nuts that would fit on the original screws

I'm not sure what you mean by 'original' screws. I used 4 of the 8 screws that came with the H50, the 4 with the smaller threads, to attach the H50 bracket to the H50 backplate. But before I removed the stock backplate, I wondered why I couldn't just leave it... it appeared to me to be sturdier. Just to satisfy my curiousity, I I tested the H50 screws to see if they fit in the existing backplate and lo and behold! They did!

Not knowing if bracket underside was meant to snugly fit on the posts of the H50 backplate, I went ahead and removed the stock one and stuck on the black plastic Corsair version.

Is that what you were asking?

You did everything fine except the backplate and the washer between the insert and the mobo. Remove both items. Once you do that, then the inserts on the mounting ring will make full contact with the mobo. Then just insert the water block and tighten everything down. But make sure you tighten the ring down in a diagonal pattern so you get even contact on the cpu.


I have a washer between the head of the screw and the mobo. I have another washer between the nut and the insert to allow even pressure to be applied.

This is for a pressure mod. By bolting everything down, instead of using the stock mounting setup, your able to apply much greater pressure between the water block and cpu. This improves heat transfer and will bring down your core temp a few degrees. Depending on your set up.

Ive been wanting to try that, but im not sure what parts i need to do it. Im kind of dissappointed with my temps becuase they are only 10 degrees lower than the stock amd heatsink.

oh...ok so you are using the corsair back plate now. By original screws i meant the ones included with the corsair h50, and not ones you purchased from hardware store.

Well with this mod and adding a fan shroud to the intake side of the rad, my cpu runs just a couple degrees C idle over ambient and about 15-20 over ambient under full load. Thats with it OC'd 1ghz. So I run between 71f - 85f on my cpu.
