nice motherboard dude.. she's a beast huh? I recommend you get a full tower.. looks cramped there.. i'd be concerned for airflow too but hey it looks just fine. I hate the sight of a motherboard so close to the floor of the case lol.

You can always install sound dampening kits from frozen cpu to reduce the noise so you don't have your wife bickering how you cannot hear her across the room and blame the pc lol.

You know, I was really against a new/big case.
I like my Elite 335.
However, I've come to realize that having a bigger case has its benefits.
I was thinking a Cooler Master Storm/Sniper. Or whatever it's called.
Looks BA and would give me some more room and maybe better cooling.
I'm an all black kind of guy. Low key. I loathe *fancy* cases and glitzy stuff.

Would switching to a H50 yield a significant reduction in temperatures?

Would I need to push/pull or would a single fan acting as exhaust work?

i7 at 4.2Ghz .. 62c load , you tell me which yields better performance ..Thats 20c of your cooler master v8 with an extra 200mhz... Im confident i could achieve lower temps also .

Get rid of the v8 , get yourself a h50 with 2 really good low db push/pull fans if noise is a concern iv personally used the noctua s12b and they are silent..you should be rockin at 4.2Ghz in the mid/high 70's .. Get some powerful fans , shrouds , some good thermal paste and u will never look at the coolermaster again guarenteed . The h50 has alot of potential in the right hands , keeps up with some of the custom wc loops .

Yeah, I've decided to make the exchange.
While I'm there, I will pick up some upgraded fans for the radiator.
Still haven't decided if I'm going to but a new case.

Have you ever run IBT or Linx at 4.2GHz? I'd like to see a screenie with your temps. The two stress test you ran at 4.2GHz barely warm up a cpu.

Heres my wprime at 4.33GHz with a much warmer ambient (21C) than some of your previous tests. I'm not comparing my temps with yours I'm just making a point that wprime barely heats up a cpu and its not your magical H50 doing all the work.

The H50 may keep up with some of the bottom of the barrel garbage wc loops but thats about it. From all the threads and reviews I've read any decent custom wc loop using a 240mm rad should run about 8-10C (if not more) cooler on an oc'd cpu than the H50. Its people like you that give others false hope in the H50. Its about as good as the top air coolers out there and thats about it.

Thats just because you don't have magical hands. Get magical hands and you will drop 20C's and idle below ambient temps! Here is a screenshot proving it!
My ambient temps were 27c's.


Trust me, the h50 defies the laws of physics! You just need magical hands.
