My drives are mounted at the top of the bottom area. I have two DVD drives in the top area. I couldn't fit the H50 there.

I've had it running for about an hour since I reseated, and there is no change in the Temps.

Mind, I still have not cleaned out the case or Rad with any compressed air yet, as I found my can of air is empty, so I need to go get some more.

I think, the main issue is that this machine is sitting under my desk; there is very minimal ventilation under there. Also, four feet away from it, on the other side of my chair, is my other machine (Black Sparrow in Sig) which is running on air rather then liquid, and venting out its rear. Also, under my desk is the subwoofer for my Logitech Z-5300e speaker system; as well as my APC 1000va Battery Backup. So it tends to be a little warmer, under my desk compared to the rest of my room.

Unfortunately, there really isn't anywhere else I can put main system (with the H50), without having to buy a bunch of extension cables.
I moved my computer from under my desk to an area where the hot air that comes out of my case can rise unobstructed and ventilation was better. My temps dropped a good ~7C at idle from 35C being the lowest core temp to 26-28C being the lowest for the same core. Everything else dropped too. What had been the highest moving temp (one of my cores doesn't register a change until it is under load of some sort) went from 40C to 34C.

EDIT: My load temps also dropped. I had been overheating within six minutes of running the OCCT Linpack test (90% of free ram) and after moving the computer my highest load temp after an hour was 68C (Which was still high for my Q9550 @ 3.9ghz but better than overheating, Max rated temp is 70C).

Is anyone else using the H70's fans in a push/pull exhaust? Corsair recommends them as push/pull intake. Just wondering if there are any benefits switching it to their recommendation.

Idk about doing intake because i havn't tried that yet, but im doing exhaust and so far my temps are 23c idle @ 1.5volts running 3.9 ghz, load never goes above 40c.

Yeah it didn't really make much sense to me, as you'd be blowing hot air into your case so idk why they recommend that.

Two choices; blow case warmed air through the rad (exhaust) or blow rad warmed air into the case (inlet). The endless debate here is which is worse.

I thought of putting the rad outside of the case on a bracket with air blowing through it sideways. That would be ok 4 me, 'cause I don't cart my case around.

The other thought was a 90 degree 120mm storm pipe bend over the fan in the case ported to the side cover so I'm either sucking or blowing outside the case.

Hi guys, I've had the H50 for about 3 months now and I read something about the "buzz of doom"

Can you guys tell me what exactly is it and what causes it?

Thank you!

They recommend it because in a lot of cases it makes their product look better. A lot of setups you would intake cooler air from the back thus giving a you a lower CPU temp though as almost everyone here knows why would you want a few C lower on one device and sacrifice everything else in your build.

The problem is obvious you heat up everything else in your case just to cool your CPU. With a lot of setups now too the problem is that you exhaust hot air out the back from power supplies(if yours is on the bottom) and video cards thus you would be sucking that hot air right into your H50 setup so it would negate corsairs whole idea that the air from the back of the case is cooler.

When I first got my H50 while I was waiting for the RMA of my video cards I had some old 8600GTS cards in my computer that vented their hot air in the case not out the back and tried the H50 as intake it did give almost 4C cooler but the video cards screamed constantly so it definitely wasn't worth the 4C even to torture my video cards.

I have the H50 setup as front intake with 2 shrouds and two GT AP-15 fans now and couldn't be happier the way I have it lined up it blows the hot air right to the back exhaust and top exhaust before it even has time to heat up the rest of my components so works out great.

I haven't received any responses to my question about the GT-15's RPM so I thought I'd repost. Would appreciate others' input as well.

Anybody with similar observations?
