post #11501 of 28302
Thanks guys for the suggestion on the issue for my H50.

I did try the tapping the hose and I think it worked. It stopped for a bit but still has the buzzing noise. Just not as frequent. I placed it at the top of the case. The spot closest to the front panel. Maybe ill get better result if I place it at the rear side since its quite a stretch to the front.

I already contacted Corsair about this problem through their site's technical support page. Let's see what they'll say! (Doesn't open on the weekends).

I had a H50 win on the weekend
I had to pull my system apart as the crap cable routing was annoying me and having a fan outside the case was annoying me too.
So basically, after re-cabling, reseating the H50 with MX-3 (what i've always used, apart from when i was trialing indigo extreme) in exhaust at the rear of the case (still the same) using the scythe sflex 1900rpm fans, one shroud on the pusher and REMOVING the shroud from the puller, i got a 2c drop on idle and a 5c drop on load!

I can't work it out.

Can someone tell me or show me whats the best way to use a thermal compound with the H50? I know the line technique is what's best for i7s, but from what I can see from the stock TIM on the H50, it's probably gonna need more TIM and in a different configuration to cover the entire surface. Pictures would be great!

(The dot method) and let the pressure clamping it do the spread

I really didn't see much of a difference with new fans - maybe a couple degrees at most.

i actually tried multiple methods multiple times with the h50 and found that spreading a thin layer of TIM (similar to how the stock TIM is applied) gave me the best results, around 3C cooler than the line and dot methods on average and seated properly everytime as opposed to the 2/5 with the other 2 methods

well im gonna try my H50 in an exhaust configuration with the stock TIM, then reseat it with AS5 in an intake config with the dot method and see the difference in temps. If the temps are good, ill keep it this way but if an exhaust config is better ill go back to that and try a different TIM method as well and we can see the results.
