Sorry totally missed that.

I run the tri-cool on Low, it matches the normal speed of corsair fan. Bump it up to full for stress testing though this is by no means a permanent solution. Looking to upgrade my fans.

Ive been working on the mod. Going great so far. Heres what it looks like with the tubes on the pump and one on the rad. I installed the fans, rad, shrouds and res to get the tubing length.
Tomorrow: Lap cpu and h50, put anti-kink coils on, connect tubes and hopefully do a leak test.
I started the tutorial video: tubes, cutting tubes, and opening pump. Im doing it in segments then putting it all together. Tomorrow ill do the vid on the loop layout, and attaching tubes and probably a lap tutorial

Pics...

Question, the tube on the left (near the C in Corsair) that goes to the res or the rad?

I don't even have the H50 yet but am so interested that I've read this entire thread today. Well, interested and also stuck in another state due to canceled flights

Amazingly bored. At least I have my laptop and wireless.

Actually do have a question...why are so many people choosing the Scythe GT over the S-Flex? Specs say the S-Flex is better. I've looked at both at MicroCenter and the S-Flex seems to be superior. Is it noise?

Ah, ok. When I had a Xiggy, I tried a Tri-Cool on it and to me they were terrible for a heatsink fan so it makes me think it wouldn't be much better for a rad. I bet once you get better fans your temps will drop more, but as I read earlier in this thread, your temps are similar to mine with the exception that you have a higher load temp by about 2C.

Does Corsair have plans for a revised version of this soon?
It's not quite as good (cooling wise) as one would expect.
I mean it's great, but for water I was hoping for a little better.

Well it is called the Hydro Series, so that could possibly mean that there's more to come. You have to take into consideration to get much better results than this thing with a custom loop would probably cost twice as much. As a matter of fact, it would cost more than twice as much as I priced out a WC build for me not too long ago just for my CPU. For the price it does it's job. Spend 15 bucks more and buy better fans and put shrouds on it and it does a little better.

Yeah I'm thinking of getting it instead of an air cooler, for this build...

I guess it won't be as good as VX or D14 which are apparently the best now.
But hopefully it won't be heaps worse, and it'd definitely be less space wasting/cumbersome.

Only prob. is, I don't think my old Lian-Li has any 120mm vents....

I don't know about Corsair but Asetek already does. Its just a 240MM Radiator though.

More info on Asetek coolers:

Asetek makes the H50. Asetek also makes there own brand coolers. There is the Asetek LCLC and the Asetek LCLC 240MM Radiator. I've seen someone post another OEM LCLC 240mm from some random brand I never herd of. But, they're out there. From what I understand the H50 has water inside them and the Asetek brand has a some sort of a liquid cooling fluid.

Oh, they are a terrible heatsink fan indeed. It's all I've got to play with though until I rethink my whole fan control system

I think I would have seen if anything had come up It's as good as it needs to be considering the market niche and it's distinct advantages over bulky heatsinks.

The Hydro series is already a series. https://shop.corsair.com/store/item_view.aspx?id=833087

They have an H30 and a T30, which are both memory blocks for water loops.

If you read this entire thread I'm surprised you only have one question! just really bumping this because I dont know the answer and want to suck all fan knowledge up that I can right now

Can anyone answer me this? I doubt it .... I'm thinking of putting a Feser 55mm midspeed fan. ~80CFM, ~3mm H2O, 30dBa. But due to motherboard, size and price restrictions I can only put one on. Now these fans are normally only used on one side of the rad since they are so powerful - but am I really going to see a significant drop in temps over my dodgy push/pull? (antec tri-cool and corsair stock)

I'll probably have more once I actually own an H50, but I already know which screws I need, which thermal paste I will probably use (stock at first then if not happy with temps reseat with ICD7). Only thing still up in the air for me is the fan(s) and possibly a shroud. Leaning toward the TK-122 on a fan controller but will probably also order 2 G model S-Flex fans so I have that option. Going to talk to a local PC store about getting old/broken 120mm fans for 2 25mm shrouds so hopefully I can pick up some cheap or even free. If the homemade shroud helps then I will probably get an Airbox 120 so it looks better.

Plan to drill out my rear 120mm exhaust and cut notches for the hoses to put the rad on the outside and put the fan and shroud inside the case. Initial setup will be exhaust just becasue I agree with the majority opinion that sucking air from the rear of the case and then blowing exhaust from the rad into the case make little sense at least in my case. Another option would be put the rad + fan/shroud in the drive bays to intake from the front and then duct it out the back or top. Figuring out which way is better is most of the fun! But, the H50 is #2 on my upgrade list behind a Corsair HX series power supply so it'll be a month or two before I get one.

Also, thanks Killhouse for mentioning the Feser cause I doubt I would've found it otherwise!
