Just got my H50 from a member here on OCN. First thing I noticed. The corsair fan...buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz LOUD! Ug. Air cooling was quieter...

Running Push/pull with one of my stock case fans and the corsair fan.

Not impressed. With my Arctic cooling Freezer 13 I would get around 64C max. Here's my H50.
I lapped both the i5 chip and the H50...considering repasting and trying again. I'm using ceramique. Considering trying Mx-2...

338

I'll get a pic of the case later...
hmm

Stock fans are adequate but can be improved on. Case fans generally dont have enough CFM to give you a cooling boost.

Suggest a fan with >70 cfm. Have a look at the fan list on the first page of this thread for what other H series users are using.

MX 2 or 4 is a good choice for TIM. Try using an intake configuration so your not sucking case heat through your rad.

H50s are infamous for seat problems. If you dont get it right your temps will be rubbish. Have another crack at re-seating and make sure the screws are tight but not overly torqued.

Hope this helps.

Ah...much better:
338

Reseated with Mx-2. The cooler is down tight...

Yea my case fan is nice and quiet but not much air flow at all. I can tell the corsair fan has alot more CFM...
I also noticed the corsair fan is just wide enough to the point where I cannot put my side panel on..fail right? Looks like I'm gonna have to mod the case panel now to get it to fit properly...

I also need MOSFET cooling...Not worried about it with the voltage im running but it's probably a good idea. I've got 2 heatsink on the top mosfets but the side ones are getting pretty toasty... My infrared gun is showing me 72C on the MOSFETS...thumbsdownsmileyanim.gifeek.gif

I had the same issue with my fan when I had it mounted in the back exhaust port. Instead of modding the case, I modded the side of the fan. Luckily, it was a soft plastic and I could shave it down with a stanley knife.

Modding a small 80mm fan to point at the mosfets would help. Ive used an antec spot cooler for those types fo issue.

Hmm....quite surprised really. I tried the thing with just the 1 case fan pushing...works quite well. I was cutting a grill out by the radiator while running this test so the temps are higher than what they should be. I saw a max of 57C...I can deal with that no problem. ANNNND my case now closes. Oh and I can hear things now. 338
