It wont matter much (if at all), just put the radiator in such a way that the pipes bend the least.

Yeah, thats what I thought.. Gotta ask the question if you want to learn though

Your GFX has a air handler that blows air out the rear of your case, only to get sucked back into the coil of your H50.



I willing to bet that more than half the people that have the H50 in intake are going to come back later on in the year asking why the temperature of the H50 is getting so high. Its because they have it set up wrong. You got to remember the H50 came out in winter and a very cold winter on top of that. What is working for you now (intake) will not be the same in other seasons.

Try following the laws of heat it will work for you in any season.


Pings, I really appreciate your drawing the schematic, and actually, I should have uploaded two versions -- the one I did for H50 fans in "intake mode" and exactly your version, for H50 "exhaust mode".

Even so, at least on my machine, results are better for intake. Am running two more rounds, without the shroud, both in & out, then will post.

BTW, oddly enough, when folding GTX throws some heat, not major (~56-63 w/Rivatuner Fan CTRL) but some -- CPU temp stays ~40 idle, low 40's if 2 core are Notfreds. I keep the back of the box least 18" from anything solid.

Also, I am not too worried about summer. I will be running A/C 24/7 one we get to March/April here in Palm Springs. Was already 80 today, more like 85 inside my place.

Thanks for the help, learning tons,

Oh yeah guys, nice thread. Just a question, how quiet is this?
Is it noisier than my Current Ziggy 1283 on full load?

and how do the temps compare to it?




Thanks!

Very quiet - even at full tilt. I had a Xiggy 126384 (Thor's Hammer) push fan previous to this. Even with a push/pull config on the H50 now, its still quieter than the Xiggy

Temps where comparable to the Hammer, with a shroud config, its now cooler as well

So, whats the verdict on the Intake vs Exhaust config?

I personally have better temps with the Corsair Specified Intake setup w/ Shroud on the pull side.

I dont think there is a verdict... its all been preference based on personal experience.

It more has to do with your case and mostly your GFX card. Like I said its winter and not what works now wont be the same later in the year. You should follow the laws of heat and not what someone said at Corsair. I try to look at peoples cases and GFX cards when recommended them for intake vs exhaust. I'm gona do a write up further explaining this. But, I can tell you most every should be in exhaust except Vapor-X type of GFX cards that don't have air handlers.

Now this isnt such a great problem at idle temperatures, and could be nice in some ways, since your CPU will stay dead cold and your fans will barely move. However, at load, your CPU may be running at 50C (assuming a high overclock, for AMD - even higher for Intel). Now I can tell you from experience that the Corsair is VERY good at moving that heat from your CPU to the radiator, and if you put your hand over the exhaust from it it's very hot. The thought of this blowing all over my motherboard, RAM, Graphics cards makes me cringe, it just seems so counterintuitive.
In terms of what you notice - intake will yield a couple of degrees better temperature, although really depends on the hardware in your system. If you have lots of graphics cards it's going to increase this difference.
The personal feelings of myself and most people in this forum are to ignore Corsairs advice, and configure the fan as EXHAUST. Note that we also see big improvements in temperatures when you use a push/pull setup.

Yes TRUE! I think funny that Corsair now followed this thread's strategy, no bs.. We knew Corsair did actually visit and check this. look at Corsair blog 's H50 guide which came from this.
