This is all at stock btw. Is this normal? Do I need to reseat it? I was expecting better temps than that. *shrug*
If you didn't remove the stock TIM, I doubt a reseat would change anything. You might modify it the way we've modified the H50 though. Like remove the stock TIM(save and reuse it if you can) flatten the cooling plate by lapping it(if possible, since I've never seen the actual undercarriage) and put a shroud in between the Pusher fan and the Rad.

Please keep in mind however this is not an Acetek system which the H50 and H70 are. Some things are bound to be different.

Would a shroud help an H50 setup? Probably should have asked that and bought one before I ordered those fans :|

Yeah it's in push/pull atm, but with the way the Phantom's fans are laid out, I can't really set it up as an intake without disrupting my air flow.

But ya I went from a 212+ to an H50 and I wasn't expecting a massive difference, to be honest my max load temp went down by like 2c, but I was more buying it for the novelty of water cooling and spending money.
Haha yeah, on the plus side it does look badass. And I can feel like a water-cooling big shot!

Ah, thanks for the suggestions! Yeah I kept the stock TIM. I'll probably play around with it this weekend when I'm feeling less lazy.

No no you're fine. Just take the stock fan and hack the fan out of the housing as close to the housing as possible to avoid having the bar create a vortex in the flow.


Trust me it makes a difference but not the same difference those fans will make.

I sealed mine up with 120mm fan silencers to keep all the flow going in the same direction.

Well if they haven't shipped yet have them subsitute the Medium Speeds instead. I believe that they'll do that without issue.

Ya I just sent them a message, if they can't no biggie, I'll just get a controller at some point.

When I get those fans I might try to do the exact fan setup you have with your case Ceadderman. I did Like having the H50 up top instead of the back.

I love it up top. I can see the entire MoBo that way. And where it sits next to my desk nobody who looks into my case knows that I'm running h2o unless they know what the H50 is and looks like.

25c idle temps =D

After lapping mine and upgrading the fans, I saw a 10C-12C drop in temps (my H70 is mounted as exhaust, same as yours). You may not see that much of a drop, since your ambient temps are higher than mine; but you should still a substantantial drop in both idle and load temps.
Thanks for the in put, I will try lapping as I remember the base being very ruff. I will also try with the P14 in push/pull config and report back.

Yes I would love to move my computer away from the fireplace, but it separate the bedroom side from the office side of room. Not so bad in the summer as I open the vent with the AC on and all is good.

Question: I don't like the back plate and mounting screws that came with the kit. It seem as you may break the screws if put on to tight. Does anyone use a different back plate and screws to mount the kit and did it help with temps. If I fine something better I will switch cause I am afraid to tighten the plastic screws.
