If the H50 intake air in to the case, you get lower CPU temps and higher case temps.
If the H50 exhausts air out of the case, you get higher CPU temps and lower case temps.

Can we all agree with that?

Nope. Depends on your case and your system cooling. I get better temps with H50 exhausting.

Unless you components are chilling the air, i cant see how thats possible.

But yet it is. Not only is it possible but my system temps run near ambient with less then a 3c rise under full load.


Like Pings I also have an HVAC background except I deal more with air delivery systems.

Just to let you know I got better temps in exhaust with my 940. I do HVAC for a living, putting the H50 in intake goes against all rules of heat exchange and air flow that I've learned. I'm sorry I can't do it, it goes against everything I have learned. For you guys who think you know what you are talking about, then go for it. I really don't care. For you guys that don't know what you are talking about and would like to learn, put your H50 in exhaust. If you think I'm "exaggerating" (spelled right) the H50 in exhaust. Then you're wrong, some people like your self, don't know what it is, does, and how it works. That's why there are sites like OCN, so people that know what they are talking about can help others who don't. I'm not saying I now everything. Look a few pages back and see me ask dude about this that and the other thing. I'm here to learn and to get better. If you wana do it ass backwards then do it.
Don't take it personal Pings. My point was the temps I have are so low it is irrelevant. I am not saying you don't know what you are talking about. However I would question, if it is so stupid, why did Corsair recommend it?
You don't need to do HVAC for a living to know it is not normal though.
Like you, I thought it was odd. But I tried it and the temps are fine.

If they were a little higher I might change around the config, but they are not.

Corsair recommends it because they can not account for all the different hardware configurations (heat load) case styles, and various system cooling. What works in his or my case may not work in yours. That's why it is only RECOMMENDED that you set your h50 fan as intake.

I use mine as intake. Pumping warm case air thru my rad seems a bit retarted to me.

That is fine, I understand that. But to go around saying it is the worst think you could EVER do and your an idiot if you do it is a tad OTT.

That would make Corsair complete Morons for suggesting something that is 100% incorrect.

Apparently Speedfan is not reading your core temp sensor properly. I don't see any way your core temp would be so low under 100% load.
Shhh
