The Corsair H50 comes with Shin Etsu pre-applied. It is better than Arctic Silver 5 and most of the other brands. If you don't have any TIM, you can just install the cooler and the Shin Etsu will be perfect.

I however, messed up when mounting it for the first time, and so I used the only tube I have which is TX-2.

But this case has serious cooling when configed properly, so I wasn't happy. So I tinkered and tinkered some more. So this is what I have come up with. On the H50 from back to front...CM R4 exhausting(pull) / fan shroud / rad / CM R4 supply (push). I have 2 140mm fans on the front of the case as supply, and a 120 on the side panel providing ambient air to video card. The top of the case normally houses a 140. But because of my fan config on the rad this space is empty and providing passive exhaust. From 18" away from the back of the case, I can feel strong (strong for a case fan) air pressure coming from the rad. My cpu temps are identical to what they were before when I had the exhaust fan turned around and blowing into the rad, and my system temps are running 25 - 29c idle/load. Not bad.
Ah so you did end up using a r4 on the h50 ,I'm just wondering because you advised me against using the r4 on the h50 due to noise. Anyways I just got the h50 setup today, and I haven't setup a push pull setup yet, so i'll have to experiment. Also I would love to join this club! I will have pics tomorrow.

This is really interesting, when I get some time I'm going to test this myself.

Possibly going to do that tomorrow if I have time.

Itll take more time, but I think overall itll be a better fit and be more secure
Good luck, cant wait to see.

I just want to how he did it. Did he fill the rad first? Did he fill the pump first? Did you let it overflow while making the tubing connection's?

I think about this like a brake system. I don't mean to sound rude, just curious.
If you scroll on a few pages through that thread you'll see. He filled it up in both directions, let it overflow and held it in an awkward position He reckons he got 97% of the air out

Corsair say this is normal, worried me at first too.

Something is wrong with that .pdf file i think. I don't understand Intel temps and TJmax, I believe they have some good support over in the air cooling/intel section for that.

It comes up below a mega, above a true. Though we dont have any proper results with better fans, I think it's safe to say this is the equivalent of a mega - but so much sexier.

This seems to work for most of us here after I first suggested it 100 pages ago!

It wont let you get more pressure on the CPU with the metal bracket, but it will be better if you plan to pressure mod. Normally, however, your motherboard/CPU stock backplate is of a similar design so there is no need to get the Corsair one.

As above.

honestly i really didnt think temps would be this high even for a quad core and my room is cold, any insight or help would be much appreciated.
Thats quite normal for a 400Mhz overclock on that chip, those things run damn hot. Remember though, 50C isnt that hot and you still have a lot of playing room if you really want to push that OC.

Try push VS pull and see what nets you better temps.. Also think about going with a dual fan setup push/pull at the same time. Someone posted links to results in the H50 fan shroud thread and the gains by simply changing the orientation were impressive.

quick question, will using fans with different cfm for a push/pull setup cause any kind of airflow bottlenecks?

After installing everything in my Antec 1200 without cable management because I have a new PSU coming soon and didn't feel like spending time managing everything only to have to take it out soon, I am liking my temps under load a ton.

I decided to put both rear Antec fans on the H50 both as intake from the rear. The fan above the outer rear fan is the Corsair fan.

I have all rear fans as intake, and the big boy fan as exhaust. All three fans on the front are intake as well and all on high.



In my Antec 300 I was hitting 70C at times under 100% load.

i have my setup as a push/pull at the current moment

@ killhouse
if this is normal then i can deal with that but i am trying to get 4.0 stable if not i will settle for 3.8 or 3.9

edit: i think ill try 220x17 later when i get home to see how it performs under prime95 and occt

If you use a R4 with a shroud, it will reduce the noise greatly. On the Scout, where you mount the side panel fans, the ports are vented. So R4's are noisy when you use them on the side panel. So really it did not matter much if I used them on the rad because the side panel fan is the loudest fan I have at the moment.

Another one for the club.

Attachment 135109

Brand new build. Merry Christmas

i've got my H50 rad fans in a push/pull configuration, drawing air into the case. I'm using the supplied H50 fan with an Antec TriCool fan i had spare. This fan is set to 'medium' speed.

You can't see it in the picture but there is another 120mm TriCool fan mounted at the front of the case, in front of the (empty) upper drive cage. Theres a spot cooler on the inside of that cage too, just to help airflow in the case. Its just about visible in the photo.

With the exception of the extra fan on the radiator which is set to 'medium' speed, all of the other speed adjustable fans on the case are set to 'low'. The H50 fan is pegged to 100% in BIOS of course.

Here's something that tries to illustrate how the air is moving.

Attachment 135110

My Core i7 is overclocked from 2.9GHz to 3.8GHz. Not extreme, but enought for me for the time being.

The idle temp of each core is about 3 - 4°C above ambient room temp
At 100% load with Prime95 or Intel Burn Test running for over an hour, i havent exceeded 76°C, on any of the cores. HT and Turbo are not disabled

System temp is between 35 and 40°C

This seems completely in line with the test results published by Corsair for the Core i7 870 in the push pull performance guide:

http://blog.corsair.com/?p=987

I'm happy with that.
Also happy that the fans running at those speeds keeps the system really quiet. Quieter than my old AMD x2 4600+ I thought that i might need higher fan speeds to get decent results, but low settings are not anything ugly.

For sure I'm going to recommending this cooler to some other people I know who might be interested.
