post #13981 of 28303
Hey guys, I was wondering, is the H50 good enough to cool a Core 2 Quad Q9550 OC'd to 3.9ghz?

I am trying to decide whether to go the with a prebuilt system like this one and nullify upgrading to include a GPU cooler too or to buy a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 kit.

My main worry I think is that my GPU gets very hot without 100% fan speed which is loud and it is bringing up my temps for my CPU. I was hoping going water with at least one of them would negate this complimentary heating.

Any help is great, helpful help is super.

hmmm, i have my q9550 at 3.4ghz and my load temps sit around 48, of course that is after i changed my TIM, i heard temps are better with the h70
you might want to consider the h70 since it has a pretty much bigger radiator and 2 fans come with it for push/pull setup
but h50 is good provided that you use good fans with enough cfm AND static pressure

I ran a test last night with just the CPU running at full load using OCCT and it didn't get above 56 degrees Celcius an any core.

My Vcore is at 1.368, PLL at 1.57, CPU term 1.28, RAM vcore 2.0, MCH core 1.22, ICH core 1.2. If there are any voltages that seem high to you, let me know, I'll try lowering them.

Also, with the 56C temp as a benchmark, my CPU gets a full 13 degrees C hotter when the GPU is being tested during OCCT's power supply test. Highest core at 68C.

I'll be joining pretty soon. Just ordered some parts to change my system over to i7 and I'm going to use the h70.

I'm currently looking at getting the Corsair H50 for a while now for various obvious reasons, but there is one thing I'm wondering about that I can't find much of a answer on and am hoping someone here can help to answer the question I have.

I've heard about a few air coolers and liquid coolers that can have a problem with Condensation specifically around the copper base plate. During summers when a house gets hot enough or when there is enough left over heat in the case when the computer is turned off and that copper plate is left cold enough the Condensation can occur. Has anyone heard anything about this as a possibility with the Corsair H50, or is this not likely to be a problem? If it might be what might I do to take care of this before getting the cooler? I should note that I do often turn off my computer everyday when I'm done using it and the Motherboard and over all the whole case gets decently hot cause of this being a powerful system I have overall. Though my fixes I'm looking into for that I need not go into here.

Unless your living in a place where around your computer case is 85% humidity+ all the time then you have no need to worry. Even then since your computer heats the air inside it, it would remove a lot of the humidity so unless it rains on your computer case not much to worry about.

I live in Virginia not far from the beach so we got all that Salt water air and everything creating very humid days. Not sure if the heat in my case would be enough to do anything with all of that but still... What about the Radiator area getting condensation as that will likely be a spot kept pretty cold most of the time as well? I should note that my case sucks for airflow it only has 1 spot for case fan and that is the rear exhaust. Not even a spot for a intake fan thus my problem with the case getting pretty hot dunno if this might present a problem with the radiator setup creating condensation though I could set the Corsair's fan to blow out as exhaust I guess.

Updated my system profile to show what all I got.

It is unlikely to build up any condensation on the radiator or the CPU block simply because it is only using water and air to cool. Your not running your radiator in ice water or CO2 or something like that. Your just using air to cool the radiator so you can't go below whatever your ambient temps are for cooling without using something else to artificially cool it with so no real worries about condensation. Now if you have an abnormal amount of condensation in your house like water drips from the walls because it is so high or your in a basement that leaks or something like that then you might worry but if not then your good.

Your over analyzing something that is very unlikely to happen unless your living in the amazon rain forest in a tree.

Just completed my first ever build thanks to OCN. Everything works and it posts but I'm a little concerned about the noise the H70 is producing. Apart from a air blowing noise it's kind of creating a low pitched squeal it seems, kind of like a "zzzzz" sound. It sounds to be coming directly from the fans and not the pump.

Is it a serious issue and should I contact corsair? Or is it something I can probably fix with a fan replacement?

I don't have any OS installed so I'm pretty sure the fans are just running at full blow. Can we expect that from these fans at 100% fan speed or what?

i think the voltages are fine
i mean using air cooled method while stressing the gpu along with the cpu then gpu is dumping heat on cpu as well (since heat goes up and that's where cpu heat sink is at)
at this point going with the h70 will reduce your cpu temps to at least 58 with gpu being stressed. i've seen the same processor on 4.2ghz with h50/h70 and the stress test doesnt reach 60c

so you will be able to further o/c your cpu and be on safe temps
