Hi, you can add me to the list as well. I just Bought mine and installed it yesterday. This is also my first post. I have been gathering info from this site for a long time, I figured it's time to join. I will be modding my H50, I have some of the parts already.

What mods are you considering and why? Looks, preformance or both?

I currently have this setup

Pull fan<case<rad>25mm shroud<push fan (exhaust).

Now, Im thinking of making that 25mm shroud into a 50mm or 38mm shroud, based on CONTAGION's work.

If I go down this path, Im going to have to place the rad outside the case, due to the fact Im going to prang my H50 pump with the push fan.

Shrouds notwithstanding, can I expect lower temps by virtue of having the rad outside of the case?

Any and all comments welcome

Thanks

thanks

Overclocked by how much? Depending on how you set your H50 up (shrouds etc) you should be able to OC.

decent, im not overclocked on this cooling solution yet.

I previously had a Xigmatek Dark Knight and was completely underwhelmed with it. This loads in the low 50's at stock, which is alright I suppose.

I had a look around and couldnt find out what it was, I'm sure it must be based on an OEM version of another fan. But I couldnt tell what it was. But the guy I quote below.....

... seems to be using "2 Corsair fans". Hmmm.

Your post was a long time ago but I'll answer anyway. That's not normal unless it's summer where you are. My 965 idles at about 3C above ambient, and loads to about 45C. Maybe think about reseating it and double check your installation.
