Can hook the radiator fan directly to power supply, if connected to motherboard fan speed control should be turned off, so the fan allways runs at full power, at least for the pump this has to be done, if you want your radiator fan speed to go up and down I guess you could, but the pump needs 100% at all times.BIOS controls the fan speed and needs to be disabled.

Hmmm... what you say makes sense but is contra-indicated in the assembly manual. But then again... so is the push/pull exhaust option

If you want that pump to last, suggest running the fan @ full tilt

Also, we really need to start ordering some panaflo's or sunon fans that at least hit 80cfm and 6+ mm-H2o static pressure and see what this unit is really capable of.

I heard alot about Sythe ultra kaze 3000 and thought it might be a good candidate to try, till I saw it has a sleeve instead of bearing, which is a big no-no.I am definatly going to try both 100+ CFM sunon and panaflo on mine as soon as I get it, will have new fans waiting for it as a matter of fact before I even take it out of the box.First thing I do with something like this is toss the stock fan and try to find where that barrier wall is where adding a more powerful fan will no longer help temps, and I can tell that with the stock fan you are not near that wall yet and this thing can do much better.

Got to remember this thing is also sold in best buy, mom and pop buy this for their pc's, they want it quiet, ok, but us in here, most will want to over clock a bit and you can't expect an overclocked pc to be totally quiet unless your going full blown water cooling, so I will deal with a little fan noise If i can get double the performance than the stock fan can offer, I don't even have this unit in my posession yet, and I know it can do much better and will surprise people with the right fan.Cannot believe all I have read on the web about this thing and no one has talked about doubling the fan power from the stock fan yet, I want to see these results more than I want to see the results of the out of box unit with stock fan.Maybe I will have to be the first one to MOD this thing and see what full potential it has.

I wonder how 2 fans piggy back will work, like 2 on each side of the RAD going in the same direction, I don't think it will double the static pressure in total, but it will definatly raise the # a bit, I am going to try this also, 4 fans on my H50, If the space in the case allows.

Panaflo and sunon fans are VERY high rated for radiator use, so anyone looking to replace the stocker, should try those first.

Also like people say, results will slightly vary with the case you use, I have an antec 300 and although it is not the biggest case, it certainly has plenty of air flow with 2 120mm holes in the front for intake and the exhaust fans it has.

I don't like to go as far as messing with voltage and usually only change the CPU multiplier, todays quad cores are so fast no need to really.But I will try to get my Phenom II X4 quad as far as stock voltage allows, probably going to be 3.6 GHZ and that will suit me just fine, a nice mild overclock.

Saw the retail version earlier today, after much debate with my new rig as to what cooler I wanted to settle on (I'm using a Zalman 9500A from my old build, currently), I'm going to go with this.

I have two questions I have to ask you guys who have it. Does the retail version come with the AM3 mounting brackets? And does this as far as anyone knows, have any issues installing on an MSI 790FX-GD70?

I've heard the back plate can be trouble for a lot of coolers.

The ones being sold at the moment from newegg and bestbuy have the AM2 / AM3 brackets included.When the H50 first came out there was an issue of the brackets not being included in the kit and having to go through corsair to get them for $5 dollars shipping charge only, and those 2 stores with the kits their selling as of right now have the new revision of the kit with all included.And I doubt you will have any issues at all installing this on ANY motherboard, which is one of many of it's good points.All this kit really requires is that you have at least a 120MM fan outlet in the back or top of the case and your good to go.

Add me in!

Okay- got this beast installed when I got home.

I removed the pre-applied TIM and replaced it with MX 3. It took a couple of goes to get it right. I took Killhouse's suggestion of 5 x dots on the CPU and it works well. I dont think I got the pump head to sit right the first time... a tad fiddly.

Pics enclosed.

More pis next post.
