There sure is, kinda silly that they would cover it up so it cant get any airflow then

I think the black thing is prolly a bearing or casing holding the top end of the pump or rotor assy.

Look back to the OP for the tubing mods, they show which two screws to remove to get cover off

the only thing about the Shin Etsu that's comes on the H50 is that it is an awfully thick layer of it. When I reseated mine last week, I was surprised at how thickly it was caked on there. I can't say whether or not it affected the performance of the stuff, but I had bought some ICD7 just for the job and temps are good. I have moved so much stuff around now that any scientific approach to understanding what affects what is totally lost. I'm happy with the results though. Idle 29, load about 47

..........seem's to me that IF that little heatsink is enclosed inside of the cover.......there isn't much for cooling (AIR) on those heatsink-fin's, except WHAT's under that cover ! ! >>>>> you would need to make an opening for that area of the heatsink > > > on the cover < << for it to REALLY have some good cooling affect upon what it is attach'd to.......... . . . again, jst my 2 of observation into this . . .

That little heatsink is just to cool the motor driver integrated circuit (the chip that powers the pump motor).

Your right, though the issue isnt that one little heatsink, the issue is everything under that cover gets practically zero airflow and does a fantastic job keeping in a lot of heat. We are just theorizing about potential overall temp reduction by removing said cover. I will test and report, but will have to wait until end of week when I am ready to start modding.

Agaeris, Yes I recall that. Few months or weeks ago I saw photo of rig's pump unit has runs without cover somewhere here or another forum. I will try to find it..

I'm with you on that. Funny thing about TIMS is every person get's different results with them since there are so many variables that can effect the outcome. In the End use what ever works best for you. I hear that IC7 likes to polish the CPU(well ti is diamond particles)

Also it's probably best to wipe the TIM on the H50 and apply manually Shin Estu yourself or whatever TIM you like.

Well, if Im going to run a 'topless' pump, I might as well review my entire setup. Heres the plan..

1) Run topless and attempt sinking the caps and replace current stock sink (cooling with antec spot cooler)

2) Replace Mx 3 TIM with Shin Etsu X 23

3) Fans???
Push>Shroud>case>rad>pull
Currently running CM R4s on both push & pull
Can anyone suggest a better alternative to these fans? Search is driving me nuts!

4) Based on looser101's suggestion
Push>Shroud>case>rad>shroud>pull (nothing to loose with this)

5) Place 120mm gaskets between fans and shrouds. (why? Why not?)

Whew... there goes my week-end


Any suggestions on those fans would be great. I will be purchasing from the site below, so pls dont suggest something that is not on that web page.

Any other suggestions welcome
