Once again thank you for you comments and advise
Like I have said in the past, Corsair can't account for all the different set ups so that's why they recommend the fan be set to intake. But as long as you have good air flow, it's not necessary.

You have some nice exhaust fans on the top there so you should be alright with intake, allowing for slightly lower CPU temps. If you find your graphics cards are getting hot I would recommended flipping the H50, and maybe that top exhaust fan to intake to give it some fresh air.

Nice system though

10 parts water to one part antifreeze/ethylene glycol. In other words 10% antifreeze is good. Antifreeze can end up raising your temps if you add too much.

new pics with xspc rad



I wasn't able to chart the temps with the new rad cause I switched my cpu's out. But it keeps my qx9650 @3.6 a cool 22-24c/38-40c

Very pleased with these results. I'm getting high dollar w/c performance for sub $200.

I'm pretty sure that is the sweetest H50 mod I have seen yet.

Not to rain on a parade, but I have a feeling that your (speedr) pump will die. Thats a big res, a big rad, long tubing and having to fight gravity. Looks sweet though

So I should use antifreeze, not PT Nuke? Im using http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=22956 these on the res and the original barbs on the pump and rad. Is there a difference in metals? Will I have to worry about algae?

10speedr, nice setup man. As to failing pumps, I guess time will tell Its all about the journey. I hope it doesnt though - its looking good!

I had some problems with the H50 installation so I postponed it to today or tomorrow. Last night the RV02 and the P55-GD65 the hole on the case where the CPU is located didn't match up so I'm going to have to remove the entire board. Also the DrMos heatsink screws on the back are preventing the H50 bracket from being flush with the motherboard should I sand out a notch on the bracket til it fits level or will it work without having to modify it? Anyone else have this problem?

I had the same problem with my 790i. I used a rotary tool to notch out the corner. Worked fine.

Good to hear guess I'll be modifying it then.

Probably going to have to do it tomorrow daylight here is about to be gone, and this all black case is hard for me to work in without really good lighting, my eyes must be getting worse . For now I must keep using the stock cooler. But I do get to enjoy my light up ram, if I roll over the firefox personas at www.getpersonas.com my ram lights will move about, but the minute I quit rolling over them they stop. It's really cool wish I could get a video of it, but I'm trying to find our digital camera.
