im back guys, and one new question, how long have you all had your h50's?
love to hear of good runtimes

also, is it wise to remove a bit of thermal paste from a new h50, and spread the rest?

Mine is running for like 8 - 9 months now. Not a single problem. Still running with the stock fan as a back intake. Just orderd 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm for a push/pull config.

As the thermal paste, dunno i removed it and replaced it with AS5.

At the top of the page it says User CP click on that and then scroll down the System Information and then click Add System

Fill in your motherboard, cpu and your case at the least to help us help you.
Well my case is the antec 900. Can i attach the heatsink to the back case fan then attach the corsair 120mm fan to the otherside of the h50's heatsink? If so, how? Cheers. My motherboard is the GA-X58A-UD3R.

The temps will be quite a bit higher but this is normal so dont panic
You more than likely knew this though

here is my rig.



does the orientation matter for the h50?

do the tube on the bottom decrease performance? would i notice a difference if i turned the H50 over so tubes are coming out the top?
How do i install my h50 like the one in this picture. (the heatsink inbetween the 2 fans.)

Is your question about screws and how to use 2 fans with 4 screws?
If so just use 2 screws for each fan offset from each other.

Example:

one screw in the top left and one screw in the bottom right and repeat on the other fan
Using two screws offset like this per fan is plenty strong enough
