Tell me what you guys think. Thanks-RoleT
1. Probably, so long as your reservoir isnt too high or too low compared to the waterblock and radiator (pumping water up and down takes more power).
2. Temps would probably improve because your reservoir will be an extra heatsink for the water, though this wont be a big difference.
3. As with Q1, just keep it quite close and make sure it's not a big climb between any component.

I hasten to add that I'm not a watercooling expert, my knowledge comes from idly browsing the water cooling and Corsair forums. My biggest concern would be the power of the pump, though people have modded their H50's with double rad's in the past - so I think you'd be ok.

Check out the ingenuity and imagination of some of our fellow H50 owners... this is insane (in a good way)

I need some advice guys! I just bought this:



120mm in the front and another in the back...and that's it.

I know Corsair recommends reversing the rear fan but will that really work in this case (zing!)? It seems like the air would be fighting convection on its way down and to the front. How much of a performance hit can I expect by keeping the fan exhaust?

Most people in this thread are running as exhaust.

I'd run as exhaust with that set up. Read the first post, there are some valid points which support not running it the Corsair recommended way.

If thats is your only exhaust port, I would keep it like that. Most people here are going exhaust with negligent changes in temps (I know I am)
