post #2121 of 28247
Folks,

I need some sensible opinions for you...

Im having a rather animated discussion here with a work colleague around auxiliary cooling for the H50.

He maintains the following...
If you have an extra fan say a antec spot cooler, directing air directly at the pump head, this will assist in cooling the pump - hence lowering the temp of the coolant before it reaches the radiator.

Im countering with:
The pump head and tubes are made of fairly thick plastic, thus the cooling effect would be negligible. The only thing being cooled would be the surrounds of the mobo and again, would have negligible impact on coolant temps coming out of the pump.

He is getting rather antsy and Im fearing for my physical wellbeing ATM... any assistance welcome

Great idea! 10/10 for lateral thinking! Just make sure she is not wearing them at the time

@ Sethy666 that sounds to me like it would just blow the hot air from it on to the mobo, I dont think a fan could cool the pump enough to make any difference.

I ordered one of these with my h50, i plan to have the h50 as an intake and that filter will be attatched to the fan on the outside of the case. Ill post my results when i get it setup.

like: filter>fan>shroud>case>rad>fan

Your friend is talking the more graspable excretion of a male cow. The effect will be neglible.

EDIT: Actually, maybe if you cooled your pump you could OC it, therefore increasing flow rate to improve cooling. HUZZAH!

Ha! That was the head shot... zing!

He's backed down and sees the error in his flawed logic. He needs to make the coffees all day now... that was the terms of the bet

Thanks guys... I knew I could count on you

While directing a fan on the pump would be better than nothing at all, the temp difference would be negligible. There's no point in faning the tubes and the hard plastic shield that covers the pump. You would gain better results by cooling the bare metal (aka radiator). +1 for you

I was laying in bed last night wondering what would happen if you submerged the rad in ice water? (without the fans of course lol)

Or maybe get a few of those ice packs that are sealed so they dont leak and strap them to the rad? lol
