how are you able to test the tube bent and unbent? air flow is still a huge factor, if you have it installed in your case in the "bent" case then what are your ambients? what about in the strait case? do you have case open and are holding/placed the H50 radiator in an environment that may be 10* cooler?

it takes more work to push fluid through a bent hose then a strait, with the narrow lines on the H50 you will see perhaps a degree or so difference on "more" bending due to the pump working harder.

I tested it by switching off all fans in my system and stresstesting the system for an hour per test result. This way old air would be recycled so both tests would yield the same results.

I am reapplying TIM at the moment and seeing if that got a positive effect .

I guess what i am trying to ask, is how are you able to test both bent and unbent keeping the same ambient temps and air flow characteristics...

I have also tested these temps with the radiator outside of the case, as soon as I bend it temps fly up.

I reapplied some cheap a$$ TIM and now temps are 90+, need to order some mx3 .

look at lapping the H50.... the warranty will still hold and Corsair would "recommend" it...

The base plates have not had the consistency of other higher end coolers...

But if your cpu runs fine and ur sayin u can prime overnight i wouldnt worry about it.
Yeah there is sufficient airflow, the case is modded kind of ****tily to allow for really good airflow



i think i win the contest for worst case mod for an h70... there's a 1500RPM scythe fan on the right doing intake and then it immediately outtakes through the H70

Yep, your right... mofo ugly. But hey, if it works Im sure you will come up with a more elegant solution. What are your temps like?

Cool setup Dartoras I agree on getting a sweet new pump though!

Maxing out at 64C (2C greater than recommended by AMD) at 1.525v... I think it's the fans though/stock thermal paste/stock lapping job. This solution worked wonders for my 212+ and dropped the load temps about 8C.

Interestingly the on die CPU temperature is only getting to 41C... These are notoriously inaccurate on phenom II's, however these are a full 10C different than they were with the 212+, so I think the socket is getting hotter than the actual CPU. Perhaps there is just a limit to the amount of voltage you can put through the socket.

If I ever have time I'm going to design a custom vent for the front that looks nice... And if I ever have the money I'll just buy a new case.

Agree with the fans and the lap. Stock TIM is Shin Etsu - its good stuff but they wack it on the cold plate like spack filler... truely, you dont need that much.

Having a look at your pic, the other thing that jumps out at me is your cable management. If you can clean that up, that a cheap and quick hit towards better air flow and lower temps.

Im assuming your rad is on the side... next to your GPU? Gonna be a little warm in that position. Is there anywhere else you can place the rad?
