I thought I've seen test results show that its better to have your shroud on the push fan side to remove the dead spot from the fan hub.

I'll add the results to my previous post later tonight. CM R4's are about equal in performance, a bit louder but still reasonably quiet with a nice tonal quality. Definitely the price/performance winner at ~$10 each.

Get back under the bus!

Sounds like it's definetely your ambient temps, you dont have anything to worry about. You could check the rad for dust build up though, that could also add a couple of degrees. If it's worse than a hoover can deal with then you might want to buy some compressed air.

Not 100% sure on the shroud question, I believe the shroud should go on the push side.

I was wondering the same thing. I got mine as exhaust and is idling at 29C right now but I'd like to get the shroud.

In threory I thought it would need to be fan shroud radiator fan since the shroud would eliminate that dead spot and push air through the middle?

Yes. Though physics and common sense says that the pull fan has a deadspot too, and that adding a pull-side shroud should also lower temps.

The absolute best result is to put a shroud on both sides, but for one shroud I think people are seeing best results with it on the push side.

thanks for the tip. what kind of screws are you using for your shroud and fan outside of the case?

Your fans are plugged in correctly - your fan plugged into CPU fan will probably have some sort of smart-fan control, meaning it will vary speed with temperature. You probably cant do this with the one plugged into the PSU, but thats fine. One fan will be stuck at 100% and one will vary with temperature. If the fans are different I suggest putting your weaker/quieter fan at 100% and putting it in the pull position. Though to be honest if you have it the other way around you're not going to notice much, if any difference.

Welcome to OCN

Some nice photos around here, I only update the member list once a day, but I will do it tonight.
thanks for the suggestion and welcome!

I have mine on the pull side. But I have a couple slipstreams coming today so I may shroud both sides and see what happens. If anything else, it quiets the fans.

I love this H50

my 965BE is OC'd to 4ghz and it'd been on prime95 for over an hour now and is staying 56-57C

So the shroud should go on the side that has the fan pulling air off from the radiator? (Not on the side with the fan blowing the air onto the rad)
I just want to clarify... I got some rebate money and I think Im gonna do the Res tube mod, and get a better fan and shroud. And While Im at it, ill lap the cpu and the h50 for added measure

One question about the res mod. Should I get 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", or 7/16" ID tubing?
Because on the product description says it comes "and is shipped with two sets of nylon hose barbs, 3/8” and ½” to accommodate most high-flow systems." So I guess what tubing so it will best fit with the h50 and rad? I dont like the mm because all tubing is in inches. I guess I just need explaining rather than get 8mm (even though I havent found any 8mm tubing online).

Nevermind. Figured 3/8 inch is the one I need. Does it matter what the OD is?
