More pics.

Ambient temp for the 2nd last pic was @ 28c.

Ambient temp for the last pic was @ 24c

Its comparable to my Thor's Hammer. Tops out at load @ 44c.

I'm impressed.. really!

I've heard the back plate can be trouble for a lot of coolers.
1) Go for it, you wont be regerts.

2) like ccomputertek's post #297 that is accurate. Frys selling H50, too.

3) I have own the MSI AM3 Main Board, and haven't any issues install on it.. its easy to intall. I think you shouldn't have any issues intall H50 on your MSI Motherboard..

Good luck!

Here are some pictures:



And here is a screen shot of my system running Real Temp 3.40 for about 30 minutes:



I might try turning the fans to see if I can get a cooler idle. I am running a stock i7-920 without any overclocking. However, I will be trying to over clock some this week.
How come those got the SO-SO high temps? it suppose the lowest temps.

anyway your pic is NEAT, ..

Thanks.

Original temps = high 40c. Then re-seated the pump heat.

All good now!

Great feedback guys love all the photos. Incoming wall of text

+1, thanks!

Can't wait to see your fan config results ccomputertek

I used the other 4 screws that came in the pack, they're not meant to - but they fit the rad pretty well. I used a couple of pieces of folded up cardboard in between the fan and rad so that the screws were tight - also makes a 5mm shroud I guess

For nice cable management I plugged the Pump into the PSU_FAN header, this is turned on full by default, at least for my BIOS. Then I put the fan in the CPU_FAN header so that my motherboard will tune it automatically. It's nicer that way for me, I can't hear my fan at all most of the time. Rarely needs to fire up to its full speed even with the Antec tri-cool on the other side of the rad on a low speed too.

Good choice You'll have no problem fitting it to that motherboard (a nice motherboard too should add ) just make sure you have a 120mm fan somewhere near the top/back of your case that you can attach this too. Most retail packs ship with the AM3 bracket in them now, but you should check with the vendor if they dont state it. It wasn't until recently that the UK started delivering them with all the brackets. And Welcome to OCN

The stock paste isnt that great, if you want to get the most out of any cooler I'd recommend some MX3.

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.

First of Hey to everyone in the h50 club, going to be joining soon but i have a few questions first...

Does the rad have to be mounted on the back of the case? i have a cosmos-s and i'd like to mount it on the underside of the top of my case, is this possible?


(plenty of room)

I'm going to use push/pull (2xNoctua NF-P12) and i'll probably do what corsair recommend and blow the air throught the rad and inside the case.. my question is, would it be best to completely reverse the airflow of my case?

current config: 1x120@front(in), 3x120@top(out), 1x120@back(out), 1x200@side(in - i think, stock for cosmos-s)

also is it really worth replacing the stock paste? (if so, mx3 of as5?)

It should be possible, the tubes are 28cm long though I wouldn't expect them to reach more than 20cm from the top of the pump because they're not very flexible (reinforced with steel or something).

It's pretty hard to say if switching the airflow around is a good idea or not. I would seriously reconsider setting the H50 up as exhaust as it would suit your case airflow much better and that way the rest of your system wont be suffering by having 50 degree air blown over it If you're set on the idea though I would try to mount the H50 in the front top fan hole (ie furthest from the CPU and turn the front intake fan into an exhaust.

MX3 will give you a couple of degrees drop and its cheap, so I'd say its worth it. But that's really up to you

Obviously doing intake improved my results (which yes the directions recommended from the start)

I have the pump plugged into Chassis Fan_2 (constant) on the motherboard and the Corsair fan plugged into the CPU fan (4 pin) slot on the motherboard.

I remember reading a review where they tested the pump at 7v vs. 12v and the pump gave better results at 12v. I didn't really think about it at the time, but now I am wondering how to change the voltage the pump receives. Do i need to just plug it into a fan header that would give it more juice?

I am hoping to overclock this week up to at least 3.8ghz. Any pointers on how to get my H50 a little cooler?

Thanks!

Nice. have you changed any other fans to exhaust? you might get some positive pressure inside your case with all of the intake fans and that can affect temps after the computer has been running for a little while.

Doing some more research, I found some info of people from [H]ard forums who have used the sythe ultra kaze 3000 and a delta fan on this thing, If they did it right, they would have gotten better results.The guy who used a sythe ultra kaze 3000 had the slower stock H50 fan in front pulling as a push / pull with the sythe, which is the equivelant of applying the brakes to the sythe fan... the guy using the delta had it throttled down obviously, but showed good numbers.
