i would use the spare as the pull not push they dont relly have high air flow nether but tbh i whould just get 2 new fans at some point to be sure to get max out of it iv got the H70 with push/pull setup 1800rpm gethal typhoons and they keep it 10c cooler than the stock fans thumb.gif (26c) all 4 cores

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.

Sounds about right. I really don't know why but I get the same, three cores will be warmer than the 4th. I'm thinking that the 3 warmer cores are just doing more work than the 4th. Happens with regular loads too (IE: programs, multitasking, not using a specific program like Prime or Intel's Burn test.) In fact I have a few things running right now and the first core is higher than the rest. Go figure. I will say that the speed of your CPU is going way beyond what Turbo mode will do. You're getting almost a full 1 gighz over the stock rating. I may be wrong on that, but it's dam fast for just turbo. Someone will chime in here and explain it (hopefully) as I can't. I believe it should be something like .4 to .8 over.

Are you going to replace the stock fan, or keep it and run a push/pull? I would say to use the SFF21G as a push fan (in either case). I added a Shark to my H60 so it pushes and the stock fan that came with the 60 is pulling. I then tied them both together with a Y cable so they'd run the same and speed up or slow down according to what the CPU calls for. Seems to work great. Oh, and I have it exhausting out of the case. Too much dust in this area to have it sucked in and all over the components. So I figured with the exhaust it'll help. I'm now getting dust filters for all the fans in the case.

Actually you add yourself, go to the first page and there's a Yahoo spreadsheet.

What molex? I don't have the 100, but just looked at the manual. That was a waste of time...lol...Anyway, you should have two leads that come off the block. One will control the fans and the other the pump. The fans should go to the CPU 4-pin on the mobo and the pump should go to any extra 3 pin connector you have. This way the heat of the CPU will control the fan speed. The pump just needs continues power and doesn't need to be regulated. On the 100 there's another lead that would go to the Corsair Digital Link (if you have one, if not it won't get hooked up). Hopefully someone with a 100 will correctly give you the configuration as it's different from the 50,50, 70 & 80.

Plug everything in. The molex gives the fans the power and the other smaller plug goes onto your CPU fan header to control the fan speed,

So the MOLEX powers the PUMP and the additional fans, I dont really care too much about controlling the fan speed as I am going to plug my fans directly into MOLEX as well.

I see how they've wired it now. Yes, you need steady voltage to the pump, so if it's on the molex (along with extra fans) that's okay. The thing about the CPU header is if it's not used by one of the fans you may come up with a constant error every time you power up (and possibly during any computing). Use the molex for your pump and extra fans, then the fans will all run at one speed (fast). But I'd put at least one fan on the CPU header so the machine can regulate it and you won't get the annoying error message all the time.

Edit; I just noticed you have a Evga board. Those are nice boards and may have a way of turning the CPU fan header off. Then you can run all the fans off a power header (along with the pump) to keep them at the fast speed and won't get the error message.

I actually have 3 H50's in my fleet, but can only show two as one rig is down in mexico serving in a work computer for my mom. Here are the other two rigs though, both are folding at 4ghz. One (With the blue-led fans on the RAM) is an i7-920 at 4ghz running Linux. It has a solitary Scythe Ultra Kaze DFS123812-3000 3kRPM fan on it and it never gets above 55c. (Exhausted). The other one is my Phenom II x4 965 at 4ghz (Never above 55c, again) using 2x Scythe Slipstream SY1225SL12SH.

Hi.

Some little bit of FUD going around here.

The molex connector provides +12V for the pump and the fans. If you don't plug it in your pump and fans will not work.

The smaller connector is a Tac signal from the pump. You plug it into your CPU header for a couple of reasons.

1: So you know how fast the pump is operating
2: So you do not get a "CPU_FAN Error" when you boot the computer. If you don't connect it, you will generate an error (depending on your mobo) every time you boot. Besides, it's nice to load software like Speedfan and actually see your pump is running normally (it will show up as your CPU fan).

Note, don't bother setting the fan port to control the pump. There's no control wire, only the Tac signal. The block controls the pump.

The fans on the H80 and H100 plug into the block, not the CPU_FAN header. (I do wish people would get it right before offering advice). This will allow you to control them using one of three settings by just clicking the button on the block. Each setting is a range of RPMs that will control the fans in that range depending on the temperature of the CPU. You have a low range, medium range and a high range each activated by just pressing the button. The white indicator on the button indicates which range you are currently using.

Now, if you know what you are doing you can come up with other ways of connecting the fans and the Tac signal from the pump, but if you're not an advanced user I would recommend connecting it as mentioned above.

As an example, I have replaced my Corsair fans with a couple of PWM fans. I connected my pump Tac signal to a case fan header so I can still see the RPM (and I have a warning set on that header if it should fail), but my fans are connected to a PWM splitter. This allows me to plug them into the CPU_FAN header while drawing the power to run the fans from the PSU through the splitter. So, in my system the CPU_FAN header controls the speed of my fans depending on how hot the cpu is. I prefer having my motherboard control them over having the H100 block control them. This way I get a greater range of RPM, and I don't have to open my case to change ranges.

However, the disadvantage is that the fans I used (Scythe Slip Stream 1900 RPM 110 CFM PWM fans) are not as good as the stock Corsair fans because they don't have as high of a static pressure as the stock Corsair fans have. That's a tradeoff I made to connect them to my CPU_FAN header.

No matter what you read, CFM (cubic feet per minute) is not as important of a factor for rad fans as static pressure is. You're better off having a lower CFM fan with higher static pressure than a higher CFM with a lower static pressure. Unfortunately, not all the manufacturers list their static pressure. For example, Scythe makes one of the best rad fans (Gentile Typhoons) but they never list their static pressure so we can only go by people's results and opinions when comparing them to other fans.

If I was you, I would plug the fans into the block and use the highest range. Why have them running at 100% all the time if you don't need to?
