Got a H50 running also, and im loving it. Its mounted as a rear intake fan in a Cooler Master CM690.

It keeps my Phenom II 965 C2 nice and cool.

actually killhouse, i mounted top of my case last night, as you saw in my pics, i moved that top exhaust to pull this morning to do some temp tests, there is a diff, dropped from 23-20C , so i'ma leave it as pull fan till i get higher rpm fans, 2100 rpm fans that only run at a max of 1800? who invented these cheap things? anyways, have fun trying to get my temps boys...i find this rather amusing, what i did to counter the heat, was set my side 230mm fan as exhaust, and its doing quite a fine job i might add, my 9800 GTX+ is still sitting at 32C idle, on intake in side panel it only drops to 31C, so not a really big diff, load temps only changed up by 1C too, cpu load currently sits at 34C, and only some of the hot air hits my graphics card, if you look at the pics, it blows right past it it only manages to hit about 1/4 of the rear half

Pretty simple question here..
Are these the screws needed to do the push pull thang with the H50 ?

You need 1 1/4" long, not 1/4" but the 6-32 was right.

I'll be adding people later. I just strapped on my feser 55 onto the radiator and testing is in progress

I recently purchased a Feser Triebwerk 122 55mm for my H50 configuration, and I thought I'd show you the results.

ORIGINAL SETUP:

Using the stock Corsair fan and an Antec tri-cool from my old case.
Some pictures in case you're interested.


THE FAN:
A quick snap of the box, also bought some new case fans but I wont waste time with them.


This fan is MASSIVE. Pictures give you a good impression but it's not until you take it out of the box and pick it up that you realise. It has a very nice build quality to it, and it's transparent case/blades are a nice feature. It certainly looks a lot nicer than many of it's rivals, such as the San Aces or the UK3K.



The fan comes with 2 sets of screws - one set of M3 and one set of M4, 8 screws in total. It also comes with a bolt for each screw. Unfortunately the H50 is threaded to 6-32 so I had to "ghetto-mod" the installation with an elastic band. I'll be ordering some nice machine screws this week, it has no perceivable effect on temperatures but it's something worth noting if you're planning to install this on a 6-32 radiator or heatsink.




You can really appreciate how big this thing is now, its thicker than 2 25mm fans put together

TESTING:

The test rig is my sig rig, stock clocks and stock voltages:



BEFORE:
STOCK CORSAIR FAN + ANTEC TRICOOL
LOW SPEEDS
AMBIENT27 C
IDLE29 C
LOAD46 C

STOCK CORSAIR FAN + ANTEC TRICOOL
HIGH SPEEDS
AMBIENT 27 C
IDLE29 C
LOAD43 C

AFTER:

STOCK CLOCKS AND VOLTS
AMD PHENOM II X4 965 3.4Ghz

FESER 55mm MIDSPEED 1800RPM FAN
LOW SPEED - 650RPM - 1000RPM
AMBIENT28 C
IDLE28 C
LOAD44 C

HIGH SPEED - 1500-1800 RPM
AMBIENT 28 C
IDLE28 C
LOAD41 C



Conclusion:
This is a gorgeous fan for a radiator setup, when you first plug it in at 12V it feels very, very powerful. It's also noisy at that speed, the manufacturer states 30dB - I would say it's not as loud as that, but it's still not a comfortable amount of noise. This 12V makes the fan spin at 1800RPM and move a lot of air, but the thing that really makes this fan fantastic is that you can turn it right down to 600RPM, this fan will start spinning at 35% power draw and will keep spinning down to 25%. At anything less than 1000RPM this fan is as good as silent, and the temperatures are the same as my old setup. I have it set up to run at 600RPM until 40C, when it will go to 1000RPM.
I am very impressed with the great range of power this fan has, you can get from silence to leafblower with ease and I would recommend this fan for a silent build or for overclocking. One can only imagine the raw power available from a push/pull configuration with this fan.

Before

After


FUTURE TESTING:
Due to my limited screws I couldnt mount the fan as a pull fan, I really want to try this because the fan has a built-in shroud design (a cone on the motor unit) when pulling. I will order some extra screws soon so that I can try this, I predict quite similar results but maybe slightly better.

I just installed my H50 last night, and i have a few questions. I mounted the radiator on the back of my case, as intake, with a fan diagonal to it to pull the hot air out, i was wondering if i should reverse this set up so i have the the case fan pulling cold air into the case and the h50 fan pulling this air across the radiator and exhausting it out the back, or if my current set up is fine. I'm currently idling at 30c, this seems a little high. My other question was whether or not it's okay to have to radiator upside down, with the pipes on the top, or if this will put strain on the pump.
