post #14761 of 28303
So here it is.. Unfortunately I bought the Tecnofront airbox 120 plexi before I finished researching. It certainly eats up a fair bit of space! Anyway, Right now its set up as just an initial test situation. I moved the 120mm case fan to the push, and put the corsair supplied fan as the pull. I don't have a shroud inbetween the radiator and the pull fan as the airbox would mean the radiator would be chewed at by the 140mm top fan. So, eventually I'll just make my own 120mm fan shroud. I have Cooler master R4s ready to be installed too, but at the moment, I want to see what I'll get with this set up so i can have a mark to gain from.

Did anyone else find their retention plate on the back a bit tricky to screw into? I have only 1 of those metal things popped into its proper position, the other 3 popped out and rotated. Their all pretty much as tight as it will go without stripping the threads... Is this the right thing to do?



Once I get my ram in the mail I'll let you know some temperatures!This is a 100% brand new rig, never run before so It may require some time before i start benching.

The mounting method which has proven, to me, to be the most reliable and easy after something like 20-30 mounts(H50 then H70) is to screw 3 of the screws just 1 turn into the plate(leaving 4th loose but inserted into bracket and ready to tighten made the process much easier for me than having all 4 1 turn in for some reason) then, with one hand, pull with enough tension to raise the bracket as far as it will go without ripping the screws from the plate - make sure you have raised all the sides and one side or corner isn't stuck. While doing this with one hand, use the other to place the block just far enough down to slip into the ring and be turned to secure the tabs but keep opposing pressure the whole time to make sure you don't mess up the TIM. Once it is locked in you should be able to switch your hand from the mounting bracket to the block and use your other, now free, hand to cross-tighten the screws. Make sure to do this slowly and carefully to allow an even spread of the TIM.

Thanks! Yeah, the temps aren't too bad, but I was hopeing for a little bit better, especially since I'm using two Yate Loon High Speed fans in Push/Pull on the H70.

That is correct , couldnt of said it better myself . tighten the screws on the bracket so they just catch on . Pull the bracket towards you while inserting the pump so as u said u dont ruin the TIM , once the pump is inserted and locked in give the pump a nice pull towards you so everything is tight n then screw down all 4 screws evenly . I had to reseat as many times as you did before i left it alone .

This is one of the best threads I've ever read. Thank you all a lot for all the advice, it convinced me I should get an H70 and I don't regret it for a second.

Just replaced the Vendetta 2 with an Push/Pull H50.
Dropped 12 Degrees C..
WOW.

now just need to find some quiter fans...

What is a good fan and rpm to run with this.
It was a used unit. so it didnt have the stock fans?

if you want quiet performance then get the gentle typhoon ap15's if you can find them. Pure performance look to 32mm+ fans.

So when are you going to get a real pump??? seams silly to keep the H50 as just a pump..... and when you get a new pump you can get a 240 or larger rad... and get that temp even lower...

Congrats on the good looking rig... with the blue (Sapphire) color water your keeping well with the gigabyte colors ...

Alright I discovered something crappy about the H50.

I am busy installing it in my Phantom rig and whenever I slightly bend the tubes my temps go up a solid 10 degrees.

H50 non bend tubes temps:


min: 48 C
max: 69 C


H50 bend tubes temps:


min: 53 C
max: 80 C


Anyone else have this? Is my unit faulty or are the tubes under too much stress? I reseated the unit and twisted in such a way the tubes aren't under any stress and I still get erratic temps.

What is up?
