[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 1281

post #12801 of 28252
Hi ya'll,

I've been following this thread, since I decided I wanted an H50, for about two weeks. Man!!! You guys are hard to keep up with! There is a lot of good information here.

Well..., my H70 should be here Tuesday, so I'm not afraid Bottom Line Telecommunications will run out of stock before I get mine. If anyone is interested, they have 3 left at the time of this post.

I ordered mine late Thursday night..., Fedex had it on the way Friday afternoon.

I'm ready to join this club, how do I do it?

See ya, Milt

Edit:

I posted on this thread a few weeks ago about issues i've been having with my h50 and I'm still having them.

Currently using a H50 with a HAF-X on a i7 930 overclocked to 4ghz (1.25V) on an R3E. My idle temps are ~49-50C, and load temp is about ~85-87C. I keep seeing other people on this thread post about how their load temps are sitting at about ~70C with a similar overclock and higher voltage than i'm using which completely boggles me.

I thought the H50 would be at fault so I RMA'd it and slapped a new one on... same temperatures as before. I've tired reapplying TIM several times with MX-3 and the stock paste they use and it hasn't made a difference either. Right now I have my h50 mounted on the back of the haf-x with a push/pull config using coolmaster r4 ~2000rpm / 70-90CFM 120mm fans blowing air into the case.

anyone have any clue as to what i'm doing wrong here?

Does anyone know the stock size of the tubing on the H70? I'm looking to replace it with some clear stuff while mounting the radiator on the outside of my case.

Hey Milt, welcome to the the club and if you want, just add yourself to that club's spreadsheet on the first page of this thread by clicking here (and just add your name on the bottom of the list).

First of all, no 2 chips are alike. While one person maybe able to OC to 4GHz without bumping the Vcore too much, doesn't necessary mean that yours will be able to do the same. Secondly, your ambient temp also plays a very important role here and it directly effects the H50 ability to cool your CPU. That being said, what's your ambient temp (when your temps were 49 - 50c idle and 85 - 87c during load).

Also if I were you, I would try it with a differnt set of fans. While those CMs are pretty solid fans for computer cases but I don't think they make good radiator fans (not to mention that some of their numbers might be a bit off in terms of CFM and SP). Something like Scythe UltraKaze 3000 (loud) or Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (not as loud) would be better for the H50. Lastly, you might wanna try experimenting with different ways you can mount the unit by reading the PDF file here (link to official Corsair's forum) or some shrouds and so on.

I believe it's 1/4" ID (or 6mm) and 9 inches in length.

Edit: and since this is your first post, welcome.

Is it just me, or do the hoses on the H70 look shorter than the ones on the H50?

I believe these are the hose lengths for each.

- H50 hose length 29cm.
- H70 hose length 21cm.

Nice one, thanks
Another reason not to get it for me then... i need the extra length on the H50 in my rig. My rig will now be staying as is!

I couldn't find mention of this anywhere - what's the exact size of the CPU block assembly of the H70? It obviously not as tall as the H50, but looks wider.

Also, is there a good picture representation of how far the tubing of the H50/H70 can safely bend?
