This might be a dumb questions, but do you have to use the Corsair fan that came with the H50 or can you just use another aftermarket one instead?

I was actually thinking of two aftermarket ones..
Ahh!

However your heart desires.
Matching aftermarket fans will most likely yield the best results I would think.
Im still using the Corsair one because at full RPM is moves quite a bit of air. + Corsair fan , Corsiar H50, Corsair Dominator ram. I like the theme

Sorry, Im sure this has been asked/said a good 10 times... I have my rad as intake now. Should i have it as CM r4-case-shroud-rad-shroud-ultra kaze... or ultra kaze-case-shroud-rad-shroud-CM r4?
Kaze pushing or pulling?
I forget if the higher cfm should be pushing air through the rad or pulling it

Noob question here.

I've kinda hit a wall with my current cooler. Will the H50 provide a tiny, small, medium or huge difference compared to my current Noctua cooler?

I just bought the Noctua. The guilt of buying a new cooler would be with me too long if the change isn't significant enough.

Thanks

So, here is where Im up too...

1) Tried to replicate cooling the H50 pump head with a Antec spot cooler as per Agaeris's post.
- Was unable to achieve any difference. Mind you, I didnt know the exact distance / angle Agaeris's had his spot cooler.
- Redirected Spot cooler to SB and ram.

2) Prepped a shroud to place between rad>pull .
- Decided instead to place it between push>shroud, thus making the existing shroud a 50mm instead of a 25mm. (34mm supposed to be the sweet-spot)
- Results very promising. 1 hr of OCCT v3 Linpack revealed 34c idle, average load 50c. Room ambient 27c.
- CPU 3Ghz (stock)
- The graph is still on my PC at home (Im at work ATM). Will post later if anyone wants it.

3) Placed a 70mm x 15mm fan over the 3 spare PCI slots below my GPU as ghetto exhaust.
- Impressive amount of hot air being exhausted. Drop case ambient from 40c to 36c. GPU idle dropped from 39c to 37c
- Ran a 10min OCCT GPU load test; Case ambients sub 40c, where as before they would hit sub 50c = happy camper.

4) Fan / Shroud gaskets
- Meh... still to be convinced.

To Do;
Trial a shroud to place between rad>pull (as suggested by looser101)
Still have to replace the TIM with Shin Etsu... Ill get there one day

Please add me to the Owner's Club, can post a picture or two later this evening from home.
Off-topic question - anyone have a good recommendation for an ambient temp thermometer? Reason I ask is I'm thinking my comp room must be pretty damn low - getting idle temps of 25-30c and load temps ~55-61c on my i5-750 OC'd to 4ghz. Want to try to get a good idea of my delta over ambient to evaluate if going full blown water will be worthwhile before summer rolls around.

Hey doritos93, welcome to our happy home

The H50 is making good in-roads against the Mega and True (see front page of this thread for comparisons). Cant speak for the Venomous X...

The H50, according to most people on this thread, handles OC very well on both AMD and Intel platforms.

Let me put it this way, Id be very, very reluctant to go back to air after using the the H50.

The technology is all basically the same. You should be able to pick up a nice one at Radio shack.

Just one question while i'm waiting for a shroud and aditional screws (for a second vent)...I have lian li v2010 which have just one vent in front (pulling air in) and one on the back (pulling air out). So, my backside vent MUST pulling air out. Is it better to put shroud in the case with the vent blowing on radiator or outside with the vent blowing from the radiator?

EDIT: I would like to put 2x120mm Scythe S-Flex vents (on 1200 RPM - they said it has cca.49 CFM) - is it enough?
