Not necessarily. You want a compressor intended for airbrush use. A good one should cost no more than US$150, and you can often get them used for quite a bit less than that. No problem with oils or other crud.

Anyone have experience taking this along? Will the pipes rupture or leak because of the pressurized cabin?

I would think they would leak more in a non pressurized cabin than a pressurized one. It is pressurized to make it similar to the pressure at a lower elevation, so it should be fine.

If it's intake from the back, it may be picking up hot air from the graphics cards. Also, the TIM that comes with CPUs is typically cheap crap, or middle-of-the-road at best. I'd replace it with IC-Diamond or Shin Etsu.

Question 2:
I hate having my h50 push hot air into the case, but many places I have read say that is best. I don;t have room to put a shroud on it, so two fans in push pull is the best I can do. Would 1 fan with a shroud do better than 2 fans push pull, would it give it more pressure?
With or without a shroud, 2-fan push-pull is going to be better than 1 fan.

Whether intake or exhaust is the best will depend on the case, and how your internal airflow works. Typically, the difference will be minimal for the CPU itself (2 or 3 degrees); but may affect the temps for the Mobo and graphics cards more significantly.

You hate waiting, try having it sitting here (I'm looking at it right now) and not being able to use it until I get the rest of my parts ~Thursday.

Had a look inside. It looks great at least, probably even better with my two AP-15s.

Gotta update my System section. And think of a name

The orange fans on the top of the case are 140mm XIGMATEK's..

The H60 is setup (as exhaust) like so -- Case|Stock 650D 120mm Corsair Fan|H60|Stock H60 120mm Corsair Fan

Thinking I need to get two better 120mm fans for the H60 sandwich..

No one else has any experiences with it on an airplane?

Or barring that, is the h50 quick/easy to disassemble/reassemble on an intel 1155 (2500k) motherboard?
The H50 is reasonably quick to disconnect. Just leave the back plate and ring in place and when you've gotten to your destination apply TIM reconnect and you should be fine. Definitely have some ~8hr TIM on hand so you can do whatever you want when you boot up. Just make sure to clean the processor and cooling surface after disconnecting.

Should be fine in either cargo space, since I've heard that the liquid inside is EGlycol. Not sure. But you can always take it onboard if you can show that it is indeed sealed to your screener.

I must say the H series is extremely easy to fit once the system is in place that holds the pump down.

K, so I bought an h60 a few weeks back. Love how it looks. I'm getting about 32c with it with the normal stock fan. Tried a push/pull with two xigmatek fans (same as the orange with white leds, but blue) and didn't get better temps. Bought a cooler master excalibur, got worse temps with that one by itself. Am I missing something here?

p.s. where the heck can you get gt ap15s anymore? Everywhere seems to be sold out and they seem to work the best.

Right now my ambient temp is 20c :-(
Pump seems to be running fine. Was getting better cooling with my corsair a50 it seems. But then again it was a little cooler outside.
