Also if you think the HAF 922 or 932 is much better for cooling than the p183 even though I think the haf will get more dust and crap in it, I'd be willing to switch cases. I'd prefer to use the antec p193, 1200 or the 902 in that order if you think those cases will get me more performance. I like those cases more than the HAFs. But again, if you think that the HAFs are the best bang for my buck then I'd be willing to go with one of the Hafs.
Yeah, that's exactly why I got my Antec 300, because all incoming air is filtered at the front. That and My hard drives were running burning hot in my previous case. Now they're cool to the touch!

I'm not really one to suggest cases. All the HAF cases, not to mention just about all other really good cases, were out of my budget back when I was case shopping - so I don't know much there, HOWEVER...

It's what I have and I doubt that you have anymore dust than I do. We've got birds. Ever seen the mess they make? The dust is absolutely the worst and my system sits driectly across the room from them. It makes doing system vids fun as well cause one of them has to do their own commentary. lol

...Ceadderman beat me to the punch! I know you can get the DEMCiFlex kit for the HAF cases and it looks pretty slick. That and it's as easy to clean as a filter could possibly be.

Well first thing, if it was me I would definately RMA that unit. Corsair will have no problems sending you a new one if this one is making odd sounds. Just because the pump 'seems' to be running fine or at rated speeds doesn't mean it might not be on it's way to failure, possibly while the pc is unattended and if you don't have temp threshold protection set up with those high of temps already, it could really be catastrophic for your cpu ><

If you don't want to do that for some reason there's a couple things I have done that, when combined together, have moderately improved my temps...nothing fantastic but if you've got the time here's a list of mods I have done over the past few weeks...

1)Lapped H50 and my CPU:
http://tinypic.com/r/72vspd/4


2)Ordered some IC7 Diamond TIM(in my experience it outperforms AS5) plus the suggested method of application on the package it comes in seems almost meant for the H50, lol(dot method with pressure and slight twist).

3)Gutted some worthless antec fans to use as shrouds and placed one on either side of rad in-between rad and fans:
http://tinypic.com/r/72vspd/4

may or may not be able to tell but I also added a piece of thin piece of plastic(gutted fan grills I never used or planned on ever using) to give the shrouds 35mm width as this is purportedly the "sweet spot" for shrouds on the H50.

4)I found in my particular situation that mounting the h50 as a front intake in the bottom of the DVD bays worked out the best and I don't have to worry about blowing hot air over other components with 2 fans exhausting out the top:
http://tinypic.com/r/72zxh2/4
not very hard to reach the front with all the fans/shrouds i have attached, lol.


hope that helps some of ya, also keep an eye out for static pressure or air pressure as it's sometimes referred to when you're looking to upgrade your push/pull fans, this is, IMHO, the most important rating of a radiator fan...those are Silverstone FM123's on mine if you're wondering.
Thanks Mate!

I will return this unit today, I hope I can get a good one!.

Glad to hear it man =) A proper H50 pump should be quieter than your case fans in most cases...only way I can tell mine is on is to check my temps =)

How silent is the H50? There are afew youtube vids showing the noise levels and ill admit, it seems like the pump has a annoyingly loud buzz sound, but to be fair the noise test was right up close to it, how audible is it a few feets away?

If the rest of your system is silent, you'll hear it. That's about the best I can tell you It bothers me sometimes because nothing else in my case makes a noise.

the H50 pump that I have produces no sound at all... I don't have a clue what are the sounds people mention of the pump, only sound you can hear is your Fan that is on your Rad

I have tested it just connecting the pump directly to my motherboard alone, yes having everest showing the RPMs so its runing

Ok sounds good I'll go with the HAF922 with filters for any additional intake fans. Should I buy any extension cords for the 8 pin or 24 pin so I can run all the wires behind the motherboard? Are there any case fans I need to add? If so, which ones are best for performance? With that case I won't even try to make it run quite.
How should I run airflow in that case with the H50? Like I said I want atleast 4.0ghz out of my intel i7 875k.
Could I run everything I listed in my first post and add another radeon 5870 gpu in crossfire with a 850watt psu or do I need a 1000 watt. I won't be able to use tge antec cp-850 psu in that case so which would be the best psu for my build in the haf922? I'm thinking a corsair modular 850watt psu, but I'm not sure. I'm really liking the CM Sniper aswell. Acutually I like that case the most, will it fit a H50 push/pull setup in the rear fan while allowing the top 200mm exhaust fan to stay there?

YouTube- CORSAIR H50 CPU Cooler - Noise Test
There's about 2-3 more other videos showing the exact same noise too.

It's hit and miss, some have it and some dont. I've seen it come up a lot in this thread

Best to presume it will make a noise, our best assumption is that it comes from the small air bubbles getting into the pump.

Anorher question regarding the fan, are the specs real? As I find it hard to believe a 1,700RPM fan can produce 3.57mm H20.
