hey guys, a friend of mine will be sending me a h50 for writing his english paper for him, also i am buying a i5 2500K i plan on taking my i5 to a 4.5Ghz OC and thats that. now my concern is that should i just sell the h50 asap for money to get an h80? or should i keep the h50?

I plan to install this into a dark fleet 85 cooler and for either of the coolers they will be on maximum speed in push/pull what will give better cooling performance? any help would be lovely thank u!

^Don't expect to get a lot back for the H50. You might be able to sell it for $35-40 shipped and you're out about $10 for shipping.

If you decide to get an H80, make sure you get it for a good price, as it's currently $95 in Amazon. Amazon is also selling the H100 for $104, so you might.as well get that instead.

But if I do keep the h50 (and save $90) will a h50 in a DF-85 (good air flow case) keep a 4.5Ghz OC on a i5 2500K under a decent temp running Push/Pull at max speeds on all case fans (including the h50)?

Not to mention the money I spent on the extra fan and a Y-cable for the fans would have equaled the cost of the 100. Hind sight. Actually hind-sight should be something like, I'm now kicking myself in the ass for not getting the 100 in the first place...doh.gif

Still though, the H60 is a pretty good cooler. I would have been more than happy with it when I was OCing my Core 2 Quad, but the i5 2500K seems to be a rather hot running beast.

Here's a pick of the H100 (and I would suppose H80) backplate:

271

It's just the black part. As I mentioned, I had a funny problem where the screws tightened to the posts in the backplate without being tight on the board and I had to add some paper washers. That was just on this ASUS board I'm using, it didn't do that on the Gigabyte socket 775 board I was using before.

Using an H100 on my i5 2500K at 4.5GHz my temp will go up to 70c using the Intel Burn Test. The H50 is likely to be 7-10c hotter (based on my 7c temp drop when I moved from the H70 to the H100).

So, 4.5GHz using an H50 might give you 77-80c. You could lap it for a few more degrees c but personally, if I had a buyer I would sell it and get an H80 or H100 (whichever fits your case the best). It's hard to pin down what is the maximum safe sustained temperature for the i5 2500k, but I've seen 73c mentioned here and there so I aimed for keeping my cpu under 73c. If you can't find a buyer, I'm sure you can still get somewhere between 4HGz and 4.5zHz with the H50, but keep an eye on your temps. You'll have to decide on your safe maximum sustained temp from whatever data you can scrounge up. If you find something authoritative, let me know. Of course, not many pieces of software will push your CPU like Intel Burn Test does, so you may get a stable 4.5, just watch out for games like Battle Field 3. They really give the system a good workout.

Hey thanks for the reply, u might as well test the h50, I'm not looking for a crazy oc just want 4.5ghz but yea its either h50 or h80, since the h100 won't fit in the antec df-85.

Yup, I'd sell it and get better. The H80 will have a better block than the 50. The way it is, is the 50 has a steel block and all the rest (upwards) have a copper block. And the new copper blocks have the 'micro channel cold plate' which probably helps cool quite a bit. (In fact if you'd like some comparisons on the same page go here> http://www.corsair.com/cpu-cooling-kits/hydro-series-water-cooling-cpu-cooler.html ) Now here's another thought. The 60 comes with one fan (and I've already added a 2nd fan to mine for a push/pull for better cooling). The 80 has both fans and I hear both the 70 & 80 have a better core radiator (a bit more 'beefy') so that's a nice thing too. Then there's the 100 which I wished I got in the first place, just because my case is built for it. But the 60 is a good cooler and does a hell of a lot better than that awful heat sink and fan Intel gives you with their processors. (I suppose it keeps costs down.) Anyway, I too would agree that selling the 50 first might be better for what you have in mind. And any of the higher up numbered units would be a good choice. All depends on how much you want to spend. Personally I wish I would have bought the 100 as after i bought a 2nd fan and a Y cable for the fans (in the 60) the 100 would have cost me the same amount. They can be found very cheaply now. After you check Amazon, check TigerDirect, the prices at Tiger are usually a few bucks cheaper than Amazon and some included free shipping.

That picture looks identical to my back plate (only mines black plastic). I have an Asus board also and didn't have the screw problem. I wonder what the difference was there? (And using washers is a good idea to fix it with.) I'm happy with the 60 now that I've added the 2nd fan (not to mention I bought one with some nice blue lighting which makes for a nicer look in the case) as it keeps the temps where I think they should be. I don't OC as much with this rig (YET) but I know I will and that little extra boost will help...lol....

Alright thank you guys! and yea i would love the h100 but the Antec-DF isn't made for that, I don't want to lose the 2 top 140's. And if i try to install them in the back 120's the h100 RAD hits the the closed 140mm fan thats right next to the 120mm fans.

If anything you could always just try out the H50 and see what kind of temps you get with a 4.5ghz overclock. From there you can decide to keep it or upgrade.

I also agree on getting a higher performing AIO cooler, but this is OCN, where spending more money for slight differences is the way to go. I see people here use the super cheap CM Hyper 212+ to achieve 4.5ghz and the H50 is already much better than that, so it's really up to whether or not you're happy with your temps.

Hey guys, brand new to the H50 here. Also brand new to LGA1155. I have an antec P182 case with two intake fans on the front, the top fan exhausting and my H50 in push/pull exhausting.

my CPU is stock, and loading it with prime95 blend brings cores 1 ,2, 4 up to 58c according to Realtemp GT and core 3 is 61c.

I used a rice grain size with a little spreading of Tuniq TX-2 thermal compound. Ambient is ~69f.

Also, the CPU clocks up to 4.2ghz under load, I imagine this is the turbo mode or whatever. Stock is 3.3ghz. VID is 1.31v.

Any tips? Oh I wlll add that my case cable management is very very clear, there is no obstruction from the intake fan through to the push/pull exhaust on the H50 except of course my low-ish profile G.Skill Sniper ram.

Hey guys, great thread!

Running my H70 @ 1600 RPM setup up to exhaust out the back of my case. Need to replace one of the stock fans on my H70 as it is going bad. I have a spare Scythe SFF21G laying around. Since the SFF 21G should be a better fan static pressure wise and I will run it without the adapter to keep it @ 1900 RPM compared to the stock fan should I use it as the push fan or the pull fan?
