post #1501 of 28251
The gurgling would come off and on the whole time computer is powered up another words for hours. I think that the pump being higher then the lines make sense because after I flipped the rad over with hoses on top I never hear the gurgling sound.

Thanks guys for helping me make sense of it I was bewildered but then I am easily lost also!

Glad we could help. If the gurgling persists you can gently rock your case from side to side to get the bubbles out of the pipes

excuse my noob knowledge, what does the "shroud" do?
post #1504 of 28251
Fans have a dead spot in the center where the motor is located. Between that dead spot and the radiator, barely any air gets moved around.
Because there is a lot of turbulence behind a fan, using a shroud allows the air to get between the dead spot and the radiator, allowing more air to pass through the radiator. Depending on the fan and shroud used, this can give a performance increase of up to 18%!

Contagion is doing some interesting tests with shrouds and the H50... its worth subbing

18%? Thats preposterous.

Its been well documented that a shroud only increases performance by 16.56%. I should know. I wrote a paper on it



I don't know if I would pay $20 for a shroud though.

I all I did was take an old Raidmax fan and cut the center out.

If you want LEDs you could always get one of these:

and do the same (might have to rewire it though).

Corsair offer one from their store for free minus shipping, but the postage is from Timbuktu and im not sure how long it would take to get here.

Unfortunately i have hardware arriving today and no blummin 1136 bracket.

I'd be happy to pay postage and send over a pint in monetary form if you can help me out!

Feel free to e-mail me at ross010 [at] msn.com, or alternatively add me to msn or reply to this thread, ill bookmark it so i can view it later. Cheers

(desperate i know!)
Sadly I couldnt help Passion Fruit out here, since my spare bracket is out of reach until Easter. If anyone here in the UK has the spare 1136 bracket it'd be great if you could help out this guy. I believe he was offering postage and a beer

Help out our friends at Guru3D

EDIT: He's started a thread here.

The problem is I can't hit 4.0ghz stable. I really haven't put too much effort into it, but it has me doubting my H50. My friend (owns a PC store & H50, but uses an intel bracket) applied the thermal paste the wrong way (possibly). He got the thermal paste, and used a business card to flatten it out all over the surface..and used the extra on the H50 (thermal paste was smeared on the CPU, and added to the H50 as well). I was wondering, if this wasn't a "you've hit a wall" problem... could it be my H50 was placed wrong (and when people use this term, do they mean placed wrong with thermal paste?)?

Usually that does mean it was "seated wrong." Too much paste, or not enough can hinder your OC'ing which I'm sure you know.

*EDIT* I was going to say that too much paste doesn't allow the transfer of heat from you CPU to your HS as easily.

I've always just used a "grain of rice" dab of paste, and used my finger (wrapped in ziplock bag) to EVENLY, and THINLY spread it over the CPU.

Works every time
