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.
Intriguing, thanks!
So this OEM LCLC 240mm is just based on the Asetek LCLC 240MM, or the other way round?

I wonder if there's some way I can get by without 120 or 240mm vents, & just mount it on the outside of my Lian-Li?
I see what you guys mean by shroud, it directs the airflow more accurately from the fan through the radiator...

I'm almost sold on this, been 8yrs or more since I've done WC, I was left with a bad taste in my mouth last time as there was much maintenance/upkeep, and eventually there was a a slight leak which killed my GPU.

There are many articles like this
This isn't exactly my first rodeo. The reason I ask is because I've never seen an aluminum radiator fashioned in this way. There are tons of pictures to be found where copper fins can clearly be seen between the rad's channels. It would seem completely daft to make the tanks and channels out of aluminum. Equip it with copper fins and then enclose the whole thing in a brass mounting bracket. Is there a more reliable source stating it's a aluminum radiator?

If it's indeed alu then I might just walk mine back into bestbuy. I am really only interested in the pump/block however, so the loss of a $20 radiator might not be a biggie.

If I can't find solid evidence, I'm just going to scratch the tank before I add it to my loop.

When I installed my H50 the tubes on the water block ended up just off top dead centre. The Corsair logo was just about upside down and didn't look too sharp,so I peeled the Corsair sticker off the fan(you would not see it anyway) and stuck it on the waterblock housing,looks great.

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?
Specs mean nothing.


Then see how much noise you want to live with.

Sorry for the terrible pics... All I have is my Blackberry ATM.










Hope you enjoy these! Still lots of tiny bubbles as the system is still bleeding

Tutorial should be done by Monday or so. Have a lot of stuff to get done this weekend.

I just finished lapping the cpu and h50. Surprisingly the h50 is pretty flat. I only noticed the edges and the parts around the screws were a little high. The majority of the center was flat.
Heres pictures.

It might be because of the noise, I think someone mentioned that the S-Flex's made a high-pitch noise over the radiator (unless you used a shroud?) -- need someone to validate that though. I know the GT's have been proven to give you the best CFM, not just standalone, but through the radiator, while yielding a low dBA. Are there higher CFM fans? Yeah, but it comes at a higher dBA cost most likely.
