That's an unusual position for a corsair rad. I've seen them as inlet in the 5.25" bays, and as both inlet and exhaust at the rear, and at top rear...but I'd class yours as middle top.

If the hoses were long enough I guess someone would mount it at the bottom!

Looks like there's room in there for a 240 Rasa kit... Just kidding.

Your case and lights look really good to me anyway. Nice work

So the H50 stock has too much paste on it? And You recommend another fan and a gutted 120mm fan as a shroud?

No? The paste is just fine. I don't know why you think it's too much but it's thin and one of the best compared to Artic Silver 5.

It really is too much. But that's easily remedied. Just scrape it off(perfect opportunity to raise the valleys on the surface by lapping the plate), roll it into a ball and reuse the appropriate amount. I use the same stuff(Shin-Etsu G751) that Acetek(the manufacturer) uses and only use an amount consistent to that of a small pea. That's more than enough to keep my CPU a chilly 29-32c consistently.

I just used the last of my G751 yesterday as a matter of fact. So it's time to get a couple more tubes. If I could get more than a half a gram I would be pretty happy. But only comes in half gram tubes from resellers.

Oh and the reason G751 is the best is that it's cure time is insignificant(~8hrs) whereas AS5 which is just as good has a 200 hour cure time. So if you have AS5 and can handle 8 and a half days of waiting to stoke the boilers by all means use it.

Yeah I just got a V6 cooler since lmao the H50 let my CPU get to 80C under Prime95 Blend with stock settings and lmao it was working I could feel it moving the liquid and I did remove some of the paste.

Not to call you a liar or anything, but I'm having a really hard time believing that. If you're anything like how I am, you have a contingency plan for such an extreme temperature set up in your BIOS.

But if it's true then why didn't you just send it in for an RMA and just run the stock cooler until it came back to you?

And a V6?!!! Really? I could see a Noctua D14 or Megahelms but a V6? You're better off running the stock cooler imho. Hell I could even see a V10 maybe a V8 but a V6?

Thanks for the Troll. I needed something to get me off this thing for a bit.

Saw this thread tonight for the first time. Ive been absent from the boards for almost a year... busy with other stuff. but my g/fs wow rig(i think it used to be my COD rig...go figure) is using a corsair H50 pretty standard mounting location in front with dual corsair 120 fans used as an intake. 120 rear exhaust and 140 top exhaust fans. there is a 140 in the lower front that feeds the GPUS.
some quick pics the wire management is horrendous as HATE the V9 black edition.. i have a 600t but im not done modding it yet as soon as its ready ill build it...and get some new pics up. Specs are in my sig. Thanks guys!

This is the third H50 ive used in a project and in this setup the CPU never gets above 35 and idles around 25.

I got a V6 as it was the only real worthwhile cooler in the store apart from the one in my sig ( I'm waiting for my Noctua to arrive ). Not a troll ,. May have to RMA the whole system now >v< it's not posting so now I just have an exceptionally cold Full Tower that freezes my toes off. I've done the cleartc jumper, removed the RAM, removed the CMOS, removed the powercord, pushed the power button 10 times and held it for 15 seconds on the 10th time, unhooked the cooler and video card to see if it was a power thing no luck. any ideas? Oh and I've tried inserting a flash drive and the dvd to activate the crash-free bios no go there either.

Nope no bad capacitors.
I'm going to blame ASUS this is the 3rd Motherboard already, and third processor, 2nd GFX card, luckily my HDD's, RAM, FANs, PSU, and backup GFX card have so far survived.
