If you can notice the H70 cpu pump.. is allot less thin compared to the H50... so it should fit even if the Rad is thicker(they made the new pump thin exactly for that purpose so being the rad thicker... it could pass over the new pump without touching it)

ofcourse that is my assumption... but you can give it a try getting th H70, if anything... mount the rad somewhere else... example... the 5.25 front bay using zip-ties.

If you want to improve a bit the setup.... add shrouds(25mm or 38mm your choice) between the 2 fans(fan>shroud>rad>shroud>fan) - it will improve the temps.. and as well it will lower a bit more the stretching of the *pump tubes

You have to sign up your self... read the very 1st post of the thread

yes i def agree there, add shrouds that stretch looks like it hurts

It's no good, my temps aren't improving enough and I really don't want to start buying fans and thermal paste and cutting apart my case. I don't have the tools for one.

I am looking at just getting the HAF 932 case and sticking with my current air cooler. I have some books to sell and an old heatsink as well as some headphones.

I would return my H50 for my money back.

All up to you I have only have a mid tower case I have two standard 3.5" drives one 2.5" SSD drive a card reader/usb/eSata and a DVD burner in my computer and still manage to have the H50 setup and another fan in front of my computer......so not like just having two HDDs is stopping you from putting the H50 in front.

I'm looking at your case... is this it?


Where exactly do you have your 2 TB setup at(I'd imagine in the lower bay HD area)?
I think he meant to mount the H50 at the FRONT TOP 5.25 bay area, that is if you don't have it filled up... as for me I only have 1 optical drive up there.. so if yours is like that then mount the H50 right there with zip-ties - you won't need to cut anything - just buy 2 good fans(the ultrakaze u meantioned earlier) & make 2 shrouds(any 120mm cheap fan take/pull/rip out the center fans from them) and thats it... set it as *Intake fan<shroud<rad<shroud<fan on the front bay top area

Wow. CoreTemp is reading 16°C-17°C on all cores while my 1090T is idle. I have it setup as an exhaust (while Corsair for w/e reason recommends an intake method). Me likey.

that's just an error of temp readings on 6 cores cpu's on some motherboards.. reality for 6 cores is 10c+

so in reality your cpu temp is 26-27c

Unless your ambient room temps are in the 10c's, if its higher than your current cpu temps - Then you will know for sure the cpu readings are wrong - There is no way to get your cpu colder than your room ambients... unless you are running liquid nitrogen, dry ice, refrigerator cooling your computer, ... etc ... on which hopefully you are not

So if your room ambients is in the low 10's then that is really cool

Great you wrote a review(its very nicely done), but you need to do some comparison with other coolers - as of what I read you only compared it to the stock intel cooler

I said comparison because in the very 1st page you ended with this:


Reading that sorta makes the reader think you are going to do comparisons with all the best air coolings out there.. since you clearly said this "but I wanted to find out for my self" - it sounds like you wanted to prove if those reviews were accurate on their testings... but since you didn't do any comparison.. how did you figure it out for your self.. if its not compared to any other of the best air coolers out there on your review.

I am not writing this of saying my cooler or air cooling is better... nothing like that... is that if I read you wanting to find out for your self.. if other reviews were accurate(that is what it sounds like to me reading that line)... you should have at least did comparison with the best air coolers on your same tests/hardware - people read reviews lately to compare them with other top market coolers nowadays... so it would be great to update your review doing comparison with most of the best air coolers out there.

But your reviews does exactly what you named the title of it *Water cooling for the masses" so I probably wrote here... something that wasn't related to the whole review if it does follow the title of it. =P my bad
Hey sendblink....thanks for your comments and I agree with you 100%. Actually, I addressed this briefly on page 4 of the review....but here is a little more detail on the matter...

TechREACTION is still relatively new. But since we want to be regarded as trustworthy and reliable. We've decided that from this point forward ALL heatsink testing from this point forward will strickly adhere to this new methodology. That way we'll be able to compare and contrast all heatsinks from this point forward against each other with minimal variance. All of the specifics are not yet public, but keep a lookout, I'll be blogging about them soon. It's going to be similar to Skinnee's methodology

So, although I only compared to the stock Intel HSF, and my custom water cooling loop...as we continue to test more heatsinks in the future we'll be able to compare the results side by side.

This is also the reason why I did not award the cooler with our TechREACTION award yet as it did not complete all testing according to our methodology...we're already planning a follow up to finish the testing, and we'll give an award to the cooler based on its overall performance at that time.

Again, thanks for your comments.

This. Right now Core Temps says 21C for me. CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro also says this for the cores too. But in the same program, TMPIN1 says 30C, which is the correct reading. A lot of people with the 1090T (including me previously) have been uber proud of their low temps in Core temp not knowing it isn't the correct one
