AS5 is kinda an old dog now, not quite the best but still ok; and AS lists its cure time as 200 hours! Anyways, you should def. see those temps drop as it cures and seats better, and check the mounting screws in a few days.
Yah, I knew there was a curing time but didnt know if the temps would drop that much.. considering when I got the h50 about 2 months ago and put the AS5 on it then, the temps were the same.

Anyone know if I should keep the res fill port cap open or closed? Any difference?

Could making the loop too short also cause the temps to increase? Because I measured the tubing I used and it came out to be less than the original tubing put together.

I believe shorter tubing will play a long nicer with the lil pump we got.

This weekend I am going to be adding a res and swapping out the tubing on my H50 and had some questions for those who have gone before me. First of all, here's the stuff I'm putting in:


Here's the loop I'm planning, with the radiator mounted at the rear exhaust hole, the res in the topmost 5.25 bay, and of course the pump/block center:



I've seen it written that the reservoir should go before the pump, i.e.:

Pump > Radiator > CPU Block > T-line/Reservoir > Pump.

But since the Block & the Pump are one in the same for us, I thought it made more sense to do:

Pump/Block > Radiator > Reservoir > Pump/Block

figuring that way, the coolant spends more time cool instead of hot. I mean, I'd rather have a reservoir full of cooled liquid, instead of liquid heated freshly from the CPU. But I don't know that it would make any difference ... or would it? So here are my questions:

  1. Any thoughts of my planned loop?
  2. I don't know if Pentosin contains a biocide. Should I add a couple drops of PT Nuke Cu? If so, why sometimes 1 drop per liter, sometimes 2?
  3. After draining the stock liquid, do I need to flush the system with something i.e. plain distilled water, or a mild detergent followed by rinse?
  4. Should I rinse or wash the tubing prior to using?
  5. Having read tlxxxsracer's recent post re: tubing length, is there an optimal total length? It makes sense to me to try to keep about the same length as it is now, overall, or just a little bit longer, to not stress the pump.
thanks!

I thought the loop was.. res-rad-h50-res. did i mess my loop up??

im not sure about the loop setup, but by willhemmens guide i did as above
I didnt flush the system out because I put distilled water and antifreeze in it, like corsair had originally.
Yes rinse/wash the tubing, make sure no particles are inside
I figured the shorter the better, to create less head pressure for the pump

But is anyone just a little bit curious as to how the new CoolIT sealed loops perform against the H50?
I know the Domino was pretty much a joke, but could they have got it right this time with the Eco & Vantage?

I'm still trying to find some decent sources of comparison, but nothing yet.
Anyone else been looking, have you found anything?

So as to avoid detracting from this thread, I've started a new one:
CooIT Eco/Vantage reviews?

*Be gentle please Ping! LOL
I'm very interested to see these coolers, it seems that these closed loop systems are really hitting the market seriously. I'll check out that thread tonight.
Unfortunately nothing terribly enlightening has been posted in the thread yet.
Some good general remarks/observations have been made, but solid leads towards proper comparative data is still forthcoming.

I personally can't wait much longer so I'll probably get the H50 or one of it's Asetek cousins.
Not a big deal, even if there is an improvement I doubt it'd be huge...

No, I think you did it the way most people do. I should have added one config to my line about, so that in total it said,

Generally water cooling is done as:
Pump > Radiator > CPU Block > T-line/Reservoir > Pump.
Translated to the H50, where pump & block are 1 unit, I think most do:
Radiator > H50 > Reservoir > Radiator
But I thought it made more sense to do:
Radiator > Reservoir > H50 > Radiator
because of the extra time as cool liquid versus heated.
post #3088 of 28303
Oh okay.
Well i have decided, for myself and help others, to do testing with a variety of setups.. exhaust with res-rad-h50-res. then intake using the same loop setup.
next to exhaust res-h50-rad-res, then intake.
To see which is the coolest. This will be over a period of maybe 2-3months. 2 weeks with each setup, maybe 3.

Can anyone answer if i should have the top res valve on tight, on but loose or off? Wondered if itd let heat escape but the liquid would evaporate faster. im still new, just wanting to know whats best

Cool. I plan on going ahead with it as I said, but it'll be very helpful to have you run those tests. Maybe I will try different flow maps, too, if I find that dealing with the wet part of water cooling isn't that bad.

& yeah, I'd like to know the answer to the top res valve question, too. I remember seeing something about the first few days to keep it loose so air could escape, but I would just be extremely careful not to bump the machine or, g-d forbid, tip it over.

Please excuse my ignorance, but if you're going this far why not purchase a custom WC kit or cherry pick every part?
Or do you already own the H50 and are seeing how far you can take things with the same pump?

Cheers
