^^Is that clear tubing? Or just UV kink wrap?

just a UV Spiral around the original tubing...
I cant trust myself with modding the H50 if i did id def. do clear tubes with some UV colored liquid and 240 rad but like i said i sux with that stuff and prolly make a mess

I admit, I was a bit worried, since I haven't really read anything on if this would do well on a Core i7 900 series processor, but from my experience, I've come to the conclusion that the Corsair H50 is on par with a top heatsink with a $20 fan, well on my Core i7 920 that is.

Granted, temperatures are around 70c when OCed and all cores at 100%, this is what I got with my previous cooler. The thing is, it is nice to not have to hear a ridiculously loud fan.

I've also concluded from experience that a really fast fan (Panaflo) vs. the fan it comes with shrouded with the fan that used to be in the back are basically the same, thus no need for some incredibly loud leaf blower, I mean fan.

I wish I took screenshots with the Megahalem and with the H50, but I suppose I forgot.

Now, I wonder if I decided to do push-pull to go with this if there would be any difference.

And I wonder, would using a fan like a San-Ace/Delta or perhaps a Slipstream would do anything with lowering heat?

This is my first water cooling operation, and overclocking also. I'm waiting for some new fans to do push/pull, but I couldn't resist putting clear tubes on. For the time being i don't have any anti-freeze in it; just water and some highlighter dye. Replacing the tubes was a pain in the ass, just remember to get "3/8 tubing" otherwise they wont fit on the block/pump correctly.

Just got it for Christmas with a new asus motherboard and 2.8ghz athlonIIx4. Running at 3.04ghz.



Pics of my rig don't want to show up... so here are the links.

push/pull wil def. give you better temps even if its not a loud fan
my high is 61 at load with 920 oced to 3.9 with ultra kaze 3k (it is pretty loud tho)

I'll report back.
Sounds fairly normal, if you look back through this thread you'll find someone with similiar specs and temp reports. Are you running push/pull?

Nothing wrong with it, I believe people are asking because they're thinking of replacing the tubing.

Sorry dude, geuss you got a bad egg. These things happen, good luck getting your hands on another.

Static Pressure is also very important, some fans are tuned for high airflow but as soon as you put an obstacle in their way (a radiator or heatsink fins) their airflow drops. Some excellent information can be found in the air cooling forums.

There is quite an in-depth answer to this in the partially finished FAQ on the front page. Every case is different but I hope it helps to answer your question.

Motherboard temp is 34C. Room temps are 80 F (32C). Also another note: i pressure modded the H50. *which you can read about several pages back*
Im using AS5 as well. I may in the future get some better fans, and possible lap the H50 and the cpu itself.

Hope this helps you guys
Great work on the pressure mod, seems like you're getting some impressive results!

Going from a Megahalem with a loud Panaflo to this, the temps are at around 44c idle/55c load @ stock speed. So basically it performs at atleast the same pace as a top-notch cooler. If you hate noise, then this is a pretty great little upgrade.

I should get better temps when I use a second fan or perhaps get something like a san-ace, which should give a better reading than the Megahalem. I suppose I can use the old heatsink on a server or something.

Now I'm going to have to get used to no sound.

Also, *cough* did you use thermal compound? I didn't have any so I was stuck with using the little pad on it.
Great to see someone moving from a mega to an H50. Finally a valid comparison between the two, and its a good one! Many of us moved to MX3 or AS5 btw, helps drop the temps a little.

See the quote above, the H50 is on par with high end air coolers, and has many other advantages such as being compact. And you can brag to your mates about having a watercooled PC

Most modding stores sell them but by far the cheapest method is to take an old fan, tear out the blades, motor and supports and just use the chassis from it. If you've got an old fan lying around this is a very cheap and effective way to make a fan shroud.

As you can see my set up in the sig section I had installed the clear sided option on my case (no fan or ventilation). The H50 at rear of case push/pull intake. One 200mm top fan exhuast. One front 200mm fan intake. One 120mm fan bottom of case intake.

Idle temps around 19°-22° using core temp. At load highest was 32°. At night it gets down to about 16°. Ambient temp is about 26°. Also graphics card shows 50° at idle (gtx275) and 8800gt at 42°.

I decided to put on the vented side cover which has a 200mm fan. Everything else stays the same.

The first as intake. The cpu went to idle about 23°-25° and the graphics card went to 48° (gtx275). I believe the cpu went up because the second graphic card exhaust heat inside case (8800gt) ant the side panel fan blew heat up.

So I changed the side panel fan as exhaust the cpu went back to 20°-21° but the gtx275 now idles at 60°

So I am still trying other ways. I will try the push/pull H50 as an exhaust setup and other combos.

Any help or ideas are welcome.
Interesting results, I think you may find the push/pull exhaust will work quite well.

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.

[....]

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.

B
Very nice rig, congratulations. And thank you for that link. +

@ 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
It's pretty normal but keep going at that OC, I think you can get more juice of it.

The pull fan should have a lower CFM than the static pressure CFM of the push fan in order to not cause a bottleneck. Unfortunately this is very hard to measure It wont matter too much though. The best method is to experiment if you want every last bit of performance out of this.


Cheers guys, keep it coming!

I feel you man. When i did this I was about ready to start punchin' *****es... I ended up using a cup for a reservoir until I felt all of the air was out. But it wasn't. However it runs perfect without bubbles as long as you aren't shacking it or something.
