@Wolfgar83

Your power supply is more than sufficient to run an H50. I have a 750W and a similar setup and i am running an OC'd Fermi and a Core 2 Extreme Quad. You'll have absolutely no issues with power.

As for those fans, If those specifications are correct, they should be good for use with the H50. IIRC the corsair fans are 2000RPM and push abour 50-60 CFM. Those run faster at 2100RPM, push more air and have a reasonably high static pressure, making them well suited for a radiator. Compare them to the specifications of some of the more used fans in this forum, Such as Scythe Ultra Kaze's, Cooler master R4's and GT AP-15's to get a general idea of their relative performance. Check the First page of the forum for links to more commonly used fans and their specifications.

Recently upgraded from DFI P45 chipset with Q9550 which worked great with the H50.

New MB is DFI X58 JR with i7-930. Kept the same H50 and did some mods for better cooling.


Adding the "ghetto Shrouds" and a matching 120x120x38mm Scythe Kaze fan to my set up lowered idle temps 2 degrees celsius and lowered 100% load temps 3.75 degrees celsius. (prime95)





Still not sold on the H70 for my RIG. The tubes are a little too short on the H70 to match my current H50 set up.


H70 does interest me though.

I would also like to be able to use my side fan again, since it blows directly on my 470 (plus the blue LED's and clear frame add to the looks of the case)

As far as temps go, I'm currently getting a max of 65 on all cores running Prime95 Small FFTs for about 2 hours, which i'm happy with. Ill look at cutting the back grill out too, up to 3c is a lot for a free mod, and it can't exactly hurt temperatures
Yup R4s scream when in pull against the rad. Shroud highly recommended.
Food for experimentation:

Sorry if this has been answered, but with 1400+ pages it's tough to read through them all.

I'm building a rig for a friend and we've ordered an H50 for cooling, but we're looking at setting up push/pull fans for it and he really wants blue LEDs on them. I've been reading all over the net and it seems like most LED fans don't offer a lot of static pressure which as I understand is important for radiators. At this point, we're looking at these three:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103060
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835426024
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150115

Which would you guys recommend? Also, as i understand it, the Gelids are PWMs and don't come with an adapter. I'm hooking this up to an Asus Sabertooth X58. if we went with the Gelids would my best option for wiring be to hook them to CPU_FAN and CHA_FAN1 and then use an extension cable to hook the pump to CHA_FAN2 or is there something better?

If he has to go with LED then I'd suggest a yate loon best bang for the buck and can pick low, medium, high speed. If he went with medium or high speed he could connect it to the motherboard or fan controller and then throttle the speed based on temps so they would be at a tolerable noise level.

You can choose to go unsleaved from the link I will put below and lower the cost down to $3.99 per fan or something like that.

Yates are very good fans (not as good as GT AP15's but they are good) and came with leds, you should look in to those

Looking at the post above you, the R4 fans are also very good.

Thanks, i've read really good things about yates, I read that Gelids outperform them...though for 7 dollars each it's hard to say no. As I understand it the TIM on the H50 is some of the best out there. Should I bother replacing it with AS5 or leave well enough alone?

Thanks again for all the input.

Correct me if I'm wrong but R4s tend to make a whine sound when pulling against the radiator. I know that can be fixed with a shroud, but every time I bring up another expense my friend twitches. If that's not the case though, I like those better than the Yates. Still. I'd rather get the rig put together and let him enjoy it for a bit then show him how we can make it better. He's not tech savvy enough to do a lot of this on his own.
