H100 in a HAF922. H50/H70 can be mounted on the rear 120mm intake.

The H50 is nice for the price. The H70 performance is almost matched by the H60. The current H70 Core costs more than the H60 and doesn't come with fans. In short, if I was going to purchase a new Corsair cooler right now I think my choice, under $100, would be the H60. I have an H50, and it's OK but I would have bought the H60 if it was in stock when I needed it. The pump/block in the H50 is fairly large. I like the smaller blocks of the newer products.

I had an H70 and it actually worked really well, had a small block and was quiet. It's a little thicker than the H60 or H50 though. I do like the H70 block, it looks pretty sweet and I've seen people use the H70 for cooling video cards because the block will fit between cards. That could be an advantage down the road.

One thing I like about both the H50 and the H60 is that they come with PWM fans. You can plug them into your CPU_FAN header and your mobo will control them.

Here's an H50 mounted in a HAF 922:

CPU was probably already flat. It's rare but it does happen. wink.gif Did you check it using a straight edge before you lapped it? If not we'll never know now. mellowsmiley.gif

I wasn't expecting to see a difference while idle, and I know that the ambient air is still what cools the water in the radiator. I still wonder how some people say that their idle temps went down. I like the results of this cooler and look forward to diving in to a custom loop in the future.

My idle temps did indeed drop. Of course I was using the stock cooler so take this with a grain of salt. I currently have Hyper 212+ in preparation for full coverage/cpu loop(just need radiator now) and my temps are slightly higher than when I ran a lapped H50 with Push/Pull and single shroud. My Idle temp ran 29-32c with H50. I run Idle at 34c with 212+ now. Under Load H50 ran at about what I am running now with the 212+ which is ~45c. If you want a true reading of what your temps are, run the stock cooler for a couple days and then swap back the H50. You'll see a definite drop in temps accross the board, unless CPU was already flat.

I ripped the 135mm fan out of my PSU this evening and put in an old 140mm Coolermaster I had lying around. The old fan was noisy and seen better days. Last night I fitted a DeepCool V400 to my simple GT220 card. It was time to silence things down a bit.

Now the H50 pump buzzing is driving me nuts. biggrin.gif Do all of these pumps buzz? How do the H60/H70/H100 pumps compare in this regard?

Try tapping on your tubes a bit with an unsharpened pencil. Or the eraser end if you don't have an unsharpened one. Should sort out that buzzing. Air in the lines will cause it. Rapping on them will/should vibrate the trapped bubbles(corrugated tubing sucks) loose. I would also recommend running with the tubes on the down side of the radiator to trap air in the other end. There is air in these all in one coolers. Can't get away from it without a way to see the actual coolant. i.e. no Reservoir. wink.gif

H100 in a HAF922. H50/H70 can be mounted on the rear 120mm intake.

It would take you days to wade through the club but have you done your search in HAF thread? Quite a few of us(not yours truly) run or ran Hydro Series Coolers in their 922. thumb.gif

I'm not sure where to look here but I am one of those people relating temps lowering after lapping CPU and Cooler. I live up in the NW where temps are pretty reasonable and not much fluctuation in them. I'd have to dig for "proof" but I posted it in this thread a few times so if you run across my contributions here I'm sure you'll see it. smile.gif

There are mitigating factors as to how a CPU can go below it's initial reported Idle temp. Such as flatness, ambient temp and setup. If the CPU is already flat, it's not going to make much of a difference one way or the other. Maybe ~3c temp fluctuation from stock to lapped. Check it with a razor knife refill or single edge razor. If you see light in the middle of the CPU it's raised. If you see light around the edges with none in the center the CPU is domed. Mine was domed with raised edges so I had light between the edge and the middle of the CPU.

The blade test can lie to you...

NOW it's done...
2011-08-0919-30-15000.jpg

100% copper showing. You'll see what you're CPU was like in the lapping process. wink.gif


Note, as I said, the only true way to know what the difference in temps from stock to lapped is to have run the CPU with the stock cooler and then run the stock cooler lapped and compare the results to the new cooler stock and lapped. My CPU indeed dropped 15c in temps from Stock to lapped @Idle and ~12c under full load. I know this cause I went back to the Stock cooler when I sold the H50. Now I'm on Hyper 212+ and my CPU under full load runs 43c-44 with no heat on and ambient is 20c. thumb.gif

The centre of my CPU was concave so it wasn't very flat at all. I could only lap up to 2,000 grit paper though.

I'll give tapping the hoses a try and also flip the radiator and see if the clatter goes away. I plan on getting some sound deadening material from a local rubber supplier. Maybe then the faint background clatter won't be an issue.

I just picked up a H60 at Tiger Direct for $51.99 and that was without a rebate or anything, i'm not sure if they are still running those at that price but i had to get one.

The High speeds are pretty loud unless you have a fan controller running them at around 900-1100RPM. I used to have them as P/P on my H50 and they would cool very well for the lower RPMs, only a few degrees higher than when run at 1600-2200RPM speeds.

There is air in these all in one coolers. Can't get away from it without a way to see the actual coolant. i.e. no Reservoir. wink.gif

I fitted a 25mm shroud to the H50 last night, then tried to rotate the radiator so the tubes were on the bottom. Unfortunately I have a Thermaltake HR-05/IFX NB cooler in place and the tubes will need to run under it and in contact with it. This HR-05 gets damn hot (it's passive). I want to replace this thing with some Enzotech sinks at some point when money permits.

I have to admit the shroud made a massive difference as the SanAce 120 has a massive dead spot behind its motor. I got 29C after boot, usually 31-32C. It has also allowed me to run the SanAce at 2% speed, ticking over on around 500rpm and currently keeping at 34C in a 24C room. Those are idle temps, by the way. Will do a stress test shortly.

If you see light in the middle of the CPU it's raised. If you see light around the edges with none in the center the CPU is domed. Mine was domed with raised edges so I had light between the edge and the middle of the CPU.

Worked on GFX card this weekend, so refitted the DeepCool cooler using AS5 paste. Horrible temps and I'm not interested in 200 hours of cure time. Took the thing off last night, put on some old Antec Formula 5 paste (apparently same as AS5, but thicker due to end of tube). This time I spread the paste and didn't use the dot method. Then put 1mm spacers under the mounting screws which would get me more clamping pressure on the GPU. Unbelievable difference. With AS5 and stock clamp it would fluctuate wildly. Right now, believe it or not, the thing is reporting a 24C temp in a 24C room. I think this has more to do with the clamping pressure than the TIMs. Not much of the AS5 had squeezed out under the heatsink when I removed it.

So I think what might be worthwhile doing on the H50 is getting more clamping pressure out of it. I didn't use the H50's AM3 bracket, but opted for the original AMD bracket. It has lower standoffs than the H50. I'm thinking it might be worth reseating the H50 and somehow spacing the bracket from the board a bit more which would allow some extra clamping pressure.

Anyone found that higher clamping pressure provided better results?

To be honest I've not heard more clamping pressure makes a difference. Of course I don't think that many people have thought of it. When I first got my H50, I was having problems with my system running properly. I thought the H50 was too tight against the CPU. System ran great on its side but soon as it got stood up, it wouldn't POST at all. So I tightened it up and it worked. So I'd power it down and sure nuff system wouldn't POST the next time. Thought it was my MainBoard. So I RMA'ed it(within 30 day grace period) after awhile don't know how long, I figured out the problem was an extra standoff that I didn't notice was under the board grounding it. doh.gif

Happens to the best of us though. You think you have 9 but reality is there are 10 under the board. redface.gif lolz
