post #251 of 28252
Just installed my H50 into an Azza Solano 1000 last night and I'm extremely pleased. The cooler is set up on the back 120mm exhaust w/ a Scythe S-Flex 1600RPM in push only configuration. Replaced the stock TIM for AS5. Temps are almost identical (1-2C difference) to my Megahelem which had two Scythe S-Flex 1600's in push/pull. The BIG difference for me is how quiet this change has made my system. I'll update with some pictures as soon as my 8 pin MB power extender comes in (cause as of now it's running across the front of the MB and cooler and looks fugly )

Question.
@3.6ghz I am idle @ about 36c and load @ about 53c. Just ordered this today, should I see much of an improvement?
Also, I ordered 2 push pull nochua fans for it. With regards to the configuration, is it better to set it up as exhause or have the air coming in? The top can vent the hot air coming in. If your exhausting it instead would it be advisable to have the ceiling fan sucking cold air in?

hey guys, i just recived my H50 yesterday and i have a couple of questions so i thought this would be the best place to ask.
i`v got a P193, so i was thinking about mounting the rad in the 120mm fan space at the back of the case, and theres already a 120mm antec tricool there so should i configure the fans to intake or exhaust? (push/pull with the tricool and the corsair fan) which fan out of the corsair and the antec has the higher static pressure? would it matter which one is pushing/pulling?
keeping in mind that the P193 has 2 140mm exhaust fans in the roof of the case, so exhaust airflow is very good.
the directions say to set the fan as an intake, so that would mean warm air getting blown into the case!?
also, is the pre-applied TIM any good? or should i clean it off an slap on some AS5?

cheers,
cat.

Exhaust will give you better system temperatures, but intake will give you better CPU temperatures. Even with my 200mm fan exhausting right on top of my case I prefer leaving the radiator as exhaust.

The Corsair has the highest static pressure but it will make little difference which way around it is. Personally I have the Corsair pushing, but I might swap it around because the tri-cools have pretty lights

The pre-applied TIM is alright, but get your hands on some AS5 or MX2

Nice pics GAMERIG.

Newbie, youll see a big improvement if youre using stock cooler

Just FYI for those of you wondering about fan configuration, I did a quick benchmark regarding the best fan setup and applicable temps on the Water Cooling page. Also, consider this my entrance into the club.

I actually ignored the instruction recommend intake.. I really prefer an exhaust airflow, which is great strategy.
