Now something you could do, is to add a small secondary pump. You can run pumps in series all day long as long as you match there flow rate as much as possible. I would add it just before the res. Then you have all the power you need to drive the water around the loop. A small aquarium pump would be more then enough.

thanks

I was getting almost the same temps as you are in the stock config. around 78c on prime95 small fft load.

also please don't quote all those pics... make people scroll more then necessary

that was me lol. the pump stopped pumping water though the double rad... maybe too much restriction or too much air got caught in the pump but it came back to life so that was nice to find out.

I guess Ill wait a few weeks before I decide to do this, and see how the other guy's pumps are. I guess I could always move the res and fans to the back and have them as an intake. In the 902 it comes with a res plate to mount in one of the bay drive slots. So maybe if I move the rad down a slot and mount the res tray above it where the rad is now, maybe that would work.

Howdy All,

Just finished a primary build and had a few questions for those of you who have used the H50 or may even have a similar setup as myself.

System Specs:

Case = Lian Li v351 (Silver)
Ram = 4 Gig / Dual Channel OCX Gold
GPU = BFG 9600 GT OC
CPU = Amd athlon 64 x2 - 6000+ / 3.01 ghz

Ran some stress tests yesterday and hit some scary temps of 70+ Celcius. The case has and will always have cooling issues , but its a beauty and I love every bit of it. Main goal here isn't record temps but hopefully load around 55c , this pc doesnt have any plans for OC'ng as it runs most of what I play On High and / or above.

The plan is to WC it however with this case , There is a space issue as well as configuration issue.

I do realize that most users configure in a exhaust format however the only way to do that in this case is a complete air flow redesign. It has 2 x 120mm in front as intake and one 80mm plus PSU as exhaust. The main issue with the air flow here isnt intake, it's exhaust and unfortunetly the only viable place to put an H50 is upfront on one of the intake fans.

Any one experienced with this or know this case have any ideas?

Points to consider:

Exhausting out front will flood system with hot air as well, vent area is minimal.

Single 80mm cannot handle intake alone.

What I have been considering is swapping out the 2 120's up front for some higher airflow fans and popping the H50 onto one of them. whether it will be push pull I am not sure yet as I am sttill deciding that factor.

With the increased airflow what heat is put into the system will be blown thrown the many vents on the sides and back of the case. As long as the pressure is good enough , exhaust should be fine.

Iv'e had full WC plans for this case for awhile but cant find any adive on a 240 ( 2 x 120 ) Rad that would fit, any ideas?

Thank ya bunches and I'll keep updated with picks once the WC is complete.

Got another question regarding this cooler: Does it still come with Shin-Etsu stock? Should I just use the stock, or use what bit of ICD7 I have left? If I use the ICD7, should I apply the pea-sized amount of TIM, as usual, or a bit more?

Hey you can add me.This is the best cooler iv ever owned max load dosent go above 43c

So I am curious now, because I show "2" CPU readings on HWMonitor. One says it's the E8400, the other is under this Winbond thing.. I have no idea what that is, but there is a signifigant difference in temp readout.

Note: I was gaming last night/this morning and was monitoring my temps @ idle and while gaming. Idle states 42c, but no lower. While gaming (max settings 1900x1200) cpu temps reached a max of 45c.
My bios reports the cpu temp is like 25c.

Do I have a stuck sensor on my cpu? How do I determine this?

Okay just need a little help here to push it to 4.0Ghz
Currently I have a 955 @ 3.8 Ghz with a multiplyer at 19 and temps at 38 C° with 20 C° ambient. If I try to push 4.0 Ghz it crashed after 20-30 min of prime95. Does an increase in CPU Voltage fix this (from 1.375 to 1.4) ? Or is there something else I should try first?

This obviously heated up the water. I moved it and my temps dropped a solid 7c. Now I am idling in the mid 30's (whereas as before it was low 40's and my Noctua was idling in the mid 40's) and it loads now at around ~67c and this is with a core i7 920 at 4.2ghz! I am really happy. I also added the cover for the h50... instead of removing the tubing to do it I just dremeled the plastic on the sides so I could slide it on. i am very happy with this setup now. It's cooling a good 8c better then the stock config. The res allows the water to cool even further so i think that's the biggest difference.

now for some pics




here are the parts involved for this project and how much I paid for them

corsair h50 $60 (zipzoomfly)
1/4inch tubing $3 (home depot)
swiftech microres $23 (microcenter)
2 x 1/4inch danger den barbs $6 (microcenter)

total cost $92

Overall... not super cheap but I think for the final temps and looks I think it was well worth it.
SB, awesome! I am glad you come back to H50. and your rig is soo hottie! Please take my suggest words, you should add wheel on your rig. it will looks more BAD@$$$$$! trust me..

Its one of ur refrence voltages. Usually when u overclock and if u get BSOD than ur vcore is low. If u crash in prime after some time its sigh that ur refrence voltages are bit low.

on the mod

Ok, so here is some preliminary pictures how I am gonna place mcres and attach the tubes. I have also marked the flow of water with white arrows.
Also u can see the ghetto NB cooling.

What do u guys think.
