A closed loop system that still has air inside it.

If it were me and I was mounting it to the exhaust port I would at least mount it with the fittings on the bottom.

FWIW you can mount it either way and someone here said they got -1c temps over their initial temp, mounting it fittings up. But look at where the air gets "trapped".

That's all I'm sayin.

I have my corsair logo right side up, rather than upside down or sideways and I really don't want to change it's orientation, but I hear people place it upside down so that the air bubbles travel up through the tubes and into the radiator.

Will having the logo right side up gonna to make a big difference?

I use the pea method normally, but the last time I used the 2 lines method to try something new. I actually got 2 degree lower idle temps, but load temps still hit 81 on the hottest core.

Using the stock corsair fan and a Xigmatek 1650 rpm with the corsair pulling. Idle temps are 43-45 on the hot cores and 36-38 on the cold cores. (I know, I got a super offset chip) Load temps are 81-78-79-74 after 15 mins of OCCT.

In my experience there is air in the system. I know this because I lapped mine and could hear the liquid sloshing inside the cooler. That tells me that there is more than just a minimal amount. No air no slosh. Minimal air barely noticeable slosh. More than you think air, definite audible slosh. Mine was audible and was definite.

Also if they use anything other than distilled water that leaves residue on the Rad. Residue they would have to clean off. Which could put the pump in harms way, which I doubt they would do that.

I'm not saying that the H50 is shoddy. If it were or if I felt it were, it would NOT be in my system. I'm just pointing out a fact of my experience with it.

Also if you look at the fitting end and measure(as best as you can possibly do so) you will find that there is MAYBE an eighth of an inch between the interior top and the very top of the fittings. Based on what I heard when I lapped the pump, I won't ever mount it fittings up. It's not worth the -1c drop in temp imho.

I mounted the radiator against the back of my case so from outside in it's: Rear wall of case, radiator, then fan, rather than the suggested case, fan, radiator. And rather than having the fan as intake, I have it as exhaust otherwise it'll screw up the pressure in my case... As of now, I have two intake in the front, one exhaust in the rear, and one exhaust on top.

Would this be okay?

at least you are honest, i'm tired of people with overclocked 920/930's saying they load at 55c with the H50

You can mount it any way you choose. That's the beauty of the H50 compared to other coolers.

If you have another 120 in your case and you feel that you would rather use the H50 to intake and don't want to mess with balance, then I would suggest flipping a 120 to exhaust if you can. Only real place to do this is on the ceiling as hot air rises so floor is not an option and I'm not sure you want to exhaust out the front. However if you have the length to mount there I could see the H50 mounted up front if you have an intake fan there. Or even in your 5.25 bays since the HAFs' have the airflow to pull air in through the 5.25 grills.

Hmm, what do you guys thing would be the best fan configuration for the h50 i just ordered? 2 yate loon 120x38 mm 1350 rpm fans in push/pull or 2 scythe slip stream 1900 rpm fans in push/pull with a shroud on the push fan? And btw, if possible i will mount the h50 in the 5.25 bays of my cm storm scout. Already have an 120 mm fan there.

Ummm no comparison the Scythes.

But that's rather unfair since you can get the YLs' in a similar RPM rating.

You're basically comparing a burger to a steak.

If I have my choice I'll take the steak every time.

Compare these instead and at least give the Scythes something to sweat over.


They are at least 300 RPM closer to the Scythes in a head to head comparison. 1650 RPM/33dB/70.5cfm AND they come in black and LED flavors.
