So the other components in your rig are staying fairly cool with the additional side fan? Do you have that side fan set as intake or exhaust? I am just a little bit concerned not having an exhaust fan on the rear of the case if I am using the H50. Especially since I have 2 5770s in the case.

Personally I would leave the H50 in exhaust configuration, though if you do decide to go as intake I'm sure you're topfan will be able to cope. You would want the sidefan as intake to give your graphics cards fresh air.

I believe the antec 900 doesnt have this problem
You can unscrew that fan control completely, it was worth it to me but maybe not for you I never changed my fan speeds anyway.

Probably not, the rad is designed to go with 120mm fans. If you could somehow funnel the airflow so it all goes through the H50 then you'd see some good results, but those large fans have notoriously low static pressure, and if you didnt find a way to seal it to the edges of the fan then the air would just go around the radiator rather than through it.

Where did you end up putting the fan control? Or did u replace the fans?

for the 120mm exhaust I poked it through a PCI slot and ble-tacked it onto the back of the case. For the 200mm exhaust I just set it to low speed and put the cable down the back of the case out of reach.

Thanks, I'll try this now.

I had the side fan set as an intake. The only component that i saw a reduction in temp was the video card, and that was only about 1-2C with furmark. I have taken off the side fan since i have been messing around with my computer so much lately that it makes too much of a hassle.

If your contemplating on whether to install it now or later, i would just do it now if i were you. If you think about it, it will keep your temps down more then the stock (OEM) cooler, so there won't be any harm.

BTW, your planning on installing the H50 as an intake? I believe most people have seen lower temps as an exhaust. It would probably be beneficial since those 5770s could possibly create more heat.

These are my temps with just a pull (exhaust)

You actually see lower temps with intake because the H50 is getting fresh, cool air. But you'd be kicking yourself in the foot, chucking all that hot air inside the case onto your graphics cards

You can add me to the club. Just picked one up last week for my new i7-920 build. I figure this would be a good tiptoe in the the liquid cooling pool. :-)

We should do what we did in the 939 appreciation club, make all names a "link" which pulls up the temps of which cpu etc so people can get an idea of what the H50 is doing for them. Maybe eve a googlespread sheet of sorts? Intel spreadsheet and AMD spreadsheet, what voltages, clocks and which fans using which configuration.
