That's on a H50 (push>shroud>rad>pull) with a pair of GT AP15's.
Still hearing tips on re-seating or TIM application that might help with the temps.Ambient here is ~30C.
Next test will be cleaning chip & h50 plate with Arctic Silver cleaner to see if it helps somehow, already tried Alcohol 70% and 99%.
I don't think those temps are bad at all considering your ambient temps. People have to remember the H50/70 is a good cooler but its not a miracle cooler. I was one of many who thought the H50 was going to drop my temps drastically over my good air cooler (Xiggy DK) but it didn't.

If your ambient is 30C-ish you are probably doing OK considering that. You can put HT back on if temps drop to 20C, and get roughly the same load temps......

Heres some pics of my ugly thing.

This should go on Ripley's "believe it or not"- That small side fan is noisy as hell, but it alone drop temp about 5c just by sucking cold air to the push. I mean, its really really noisy. Unfortunately, it touched the Spot cool when putting the cover back after 2nd pic and insta broke a fin. Now its a vibrator. Good thing is that i have plenty more carcasses to salvage fans from at work



Spot cool moved from RAM cooler to blow some more air on the rad tube intake. Moved HD block up to improve air flow. Err, something like that. Its chaotic upstairs but not so much downstairs
Drop temps about 3 deg or so, if its maxed. Every bit helps.



Quick numbers.



post #15204 of 28306
nice temps , you get a fraction lower than mine bcos ur using less voltage .. Mine need 1.408v to hold 4.2Ghz steady and max's out in the high 70's depending on the ambients.

But very good for a case with a million wires and a few tiny fans , well done .

how come so many ppl buy this when temps arent that much different from air cooling and different cost in price? cause of the review I seen on tomshardware

That's really not going to do much for you unless you have old TIM you never cleaned off properly but you say you tried 99% isopropyl so I doubt that is the case. If anything I would say to lap your H50 at least...and your chip if you don't mind voiding the warranty..
Corsair will not void your warranty if you lap the H series's blocks however as they will not deny there is much improvement that could be made on them.

The flatter and smoother you get the less and less it matters how great you are at applying TIM. =)

Regardless, looks like you're doing well as is man, props on those temps for a relatively simple setup.

Many people buy this for many reasons. Some(like myself) have always been intrigued by water cooling but weren't quite ready to go all out with a custom loop so this is a nice way to get your feet...wet. Some like how small the blocks are compared to the massive top end air cooling devices they stay competitive with. Some thinks logic dictates water < air no matter the reviews, and it's a hard fight to argue otherwise.
I'll bring up size again for all the small form factorerz with extremely small spaces to work with who, quite frankly, cannot get better cooling on air than the H series provides them. All these and more backed by a company with a long, proven dedication to customer satisfaction before & after they've got your money as well as an excellent track record containing a considerable number of products accepted to be very high quality in make, durability, and aesthetics and is there really any wonder left in the amount of sales these babies ignited?

Don't forget you've got those who see this ***omg giant thread and are persuaded by us to join us.....And your corsair fanatics who cannot abide another logo resting on top of their cpu when they aren't forced to....PLus random brick & mortar customers persuaded by salespeople and the word "New"......I'm sure I've only listed around 10-20% of the motives behind the sales so far but I'm tired and this would take way too long.^^

As mentioned above already if you buy a top of the line air cooler that would give the same temps as a H50/H70 you'll end up paying about the same price and many people do not have the space to even fit a huge air cooler in their case or have other problems like ram clearance issues. I have tried out many of the top air coolers to but, to match what I get with my H50 I would have to go with 3k rpm jet engines on an air cooler so not really worth it for me.

Yep I agree with the above posters.

Although my Scythe Mugen 2 with 2x Yate Loon High Speed fans performs about on par with the H50, I really hate how big and bulky my SM2 is. It's the only part in my system that doesn't follow my blue/black theme, and blocks me from adding fans to my NB and RAM.

So I sold my SM2 for $30 (with a Yate fan and the stock fan) to a friend who is building a rig and bought a used H50 without fans for $40. I'm technically only spending $10 more and I'll get to open up a bunch of room in my case to add cooling to my NB and RAM, which is a win/win for me!

Like slimbrady said , for a first time watercooling unit its nice , tidy , easy to install , doesnt leak and its easy to mod , lap , add a resoiver and maybe a bigger rad later on . Its pump is a pretty good base to work off after u know the ins and outs of the h50 u start modding to drop the temps more and people get good results , the h50\\70 have alot of potential u just need to tweak it to peak performance . I like my h50 its unique , iv seen to many heatsinks in my life time to move on .
