i have got to move it one more time coz of the new fans i have coming and i want to apply new thermal paste aswell. is it true that the H50 works better if the radiator pipes are at the top and not at the bottom? coz right now mine are at the bottom so i might aswell turn it around aswell if it needs to be.

No

If you think about it.

If you have the lines at the bottom air will not be able to get into the lines. (Gravity)
Too much air going through the H50 pump equals pump death
There is a very small amout of air in the H50

The fan blades will overhang the radiator edges. Will the "closed tunnel effect" of 120mm fans be lost and result in loss of radiator cooling efficiency if I use these fans? I ordered 2 of these but am planning on using them as front intakes for my Thermaltake Element T. Am planning on using GT AP-15's P/P for the H70 but I'm open to other options such as the KM2 if their being 140mm will offer any improvement over the GT-15's
Thanks for the response zavia. Has anybody had experience using 2 140mm fans for P/P? Any other insights on this?

Where do i start? well really quick.

I have had 3 H50's all free due to a mistake on Fry's/Corsairs part. It all started at Frys when i had to return a faulty motherboard but the H50 backplate was stuck to the board (Double-sided tape) and i didn't have the time/chemicals to remove it before Fry's closed so i decided just to take it with me and remove it there with a so-called tech and professional chemicals. (Safe for electronics)

Well it turned out that when they credited me for the motherboard they also credited me for the H50 aswell. Even i did not catch this at 1st.
(Gotta give him a break as he was new and preceded to try and remove the STACKCOOL from the motherboard (P6T) as opposed to just remove the H50 backplate and hand it to me. Don't worry i stopped him after about ten seconds of trying to remove the stackcool with a small flat head

1st Unit eventually leaked and Corsair RMA'ed it quick and i had a new H50 within 2-3 days but they sent another H50 about a week and a half later

One leaked witch resulted in two working i7 systems (from replaced parts and getting all the damaged parts back after tested by corsair costing $61.00 in shipping) minus the motherboard as i did not get the old one back.

I sold the rma'ed BNIB H50

I'm using one. "In fear" J/k

And i share my tale and now i'm making pennys on the dollar 5 months later
Hey money is money and for those that work for what they have can relate.

I checked up on my older "SquidooLens<--- Goggle that" and found that people were goggling "H50 Leak Bodycount" I'm famous. More like maybe infamous Google analytics is where its at If your smart enough.
Ohh i've said to much. Get outta my $$ People


Here's what i mean
http://www.squidoo.com/corsair-h50-leak

Some of you that know me have more info than my own site does

But this post sums it up.

Oh what a world
Holy crap man now you got me all worried!!! I just installed this thing last night in a system that only a couple weeks old, I would be devistated lol.

You have nothing to fear. I've gone through two of them and have twisted and contorted them in ways you can't even imagine with not a single issue. I love having a h50 in my ITX box The defect rate on these units is minuscule, but you can bet when something goes wrong the internet is gonna hear about it...

Yah its always gets posted when something fails. I guess theres plenty of people here to vouch for it.

On a side not I honestly don't see much better temps then my hyper 212. But I was happy with the temps before anyways and didn't really buy this thing for that.

Corsair also have an extremely good customer support. In every case of a leak that I've heard Corsair have replaced entire damaged systems

Yep. I e-mailed them about a replacement backplate for my h50 (because I hacked this one up to fit the ITX board) and they sent me the whole mount package for all platforms, free of charge and no questions asked
