post #15641 of 28251
Got one of these a couple of days ago and it's a pretty sweet piece of hardware. My 925 idles at 26C and tops out at 42C at 3.5ghz. Not bad for $80 CAD.

Was anyone else paranoid when installing the radiator? Damn, those tubes are stiff.

I was cuz i was very careful because i didn't wanna dent the rad fins. I just like to keep things in good condition. I'm not worried about anything else and yes the tubes are stiff but they are bendable and you have nothing to worry about.

The tubes are the reason that I changed my mind about how I had this thing installed. I was really uneasy about the tight bend I had in the hoses when it was connected to my exhaust port. I mod'd my case to allow for intake installation and its so much cleaner and straighter. I love the way this idea worked out for me.

That's nice but you know that you are now blocking your airflow for your whole system.. only if you had another fan intake up top.. however.. i'd be not surprised if your video card heats up.

You can't tell from the pictures, but I have the Lian Li HDD rack mounted in the upper 3.5" bays. That unit has its own 120mm fan. There is absolutely no blockage of airflow in my case. The fans on my rad are Scythe GT1850's and they pump a ton of CFMs. With my previous air cooler (CoolerMaster N520), my case temps averaged 44-49C under load while my CPU ran 41-43C. Right now my CPU under load averages 33-35C and my case remains at a cool 39C all the time (side panel installed).

I haven't seen my video card temps go above 43C. The new XFX twin fan 6850 is amazingly quiet and cool. The fans run at 40% while gaming.

Its not a great pic, but you can see the Lian Li HDD rack. The 120mm fan is right behind the grill you see.

Well he said he has it as an intake, so I think it's probably less blocking the airflow and more just blowing hot air right onto the vid card...

My case layout sucks due to non-modular power supply, 5 hard drives, etc, but I have my H50 as an exhaust on the back and I also have a side panel intake fan blowing straight onto my vid card, which drops load temps from 65 to 52.

39C for the case seems awfully hot... Speedfan says mine is 25. Ambient is 20.

You got a great deal!! Yes, one fan is the default setup. Push/pull with two fans will yield much better performance though.

An ambient of 20c means that your case, while running, has lower temps than the standard living air temp (which is 21C). Do you keep your house very cold or have an air conditioning port shooting straight into your case?

39C is not out of line at all. It would be a bit cooler if i had the push/pull running as an exhaust, but my CPU temps would be a few degrees higher.

how much does H50/H70 costs in USA?
I really want one of them for my rig but here in Latvia I can't get them and on ebay they are like 120$ with shipping.
