post #3481 of 28251
im very happy with the results of the h50. my idle temps are 34c, 33c,31c,29c on my core i7, (10c improvement over my zalman 9900) and intaking air into the case with the 2 120mm fans on either side of the radiator has put ambient temps at 17c in the case while the cpu is idling and load temps at the mid to low 50's. These are pretty good temps right? How much would anyone estimate modifying the h50 lower my temps. (just wondering)

I've been keepin my q9550@3.4 at 34C idle and 54C fully loaded in my mid-tower. I love the ease of install and clean look it adds to the case.

Exhaust, just like all the enthusiast forums said to.

Take a look at my post a couple up from yours, you should try switching your radiator fans to intake.
Yes, I found your post shortly after posting and the difference is staggering. I read in one ATCS 840 review that case cooling under load isn't great because it's simply too big. For that reason I had considered your configuration as I wondered whether the twin top exhaust 230s would cope with extracting the incoming hot air before it heated other components like the RAM. One reason I liked the top exhaust was because with the radiator mounted on the 120 rear mount it covered one of the motherboard's passive cooling heatsinks (I also have the P6X58D Premium).

I will most certainly try it on the 120 rear mount as push-pull intake in due course. However, as luck would have it, I've had to RMA one of the top 230s. I'll wait until I get it replaced and run on stock in the meantime, so it will be a few days before I can report back.

Do you have a picture of your mount?

This is when I had it as an exhaust, basically all I did was switch the radiator and that 38mm Panaflo you see there.

Yeah I know Corsair redesigned the block, not so sure about the pump...

But how do we know Asetek didn't improve upon their 120mm LCLC for the newer 240mm LCLC system?
And how do we determine if the NQ-3590 is the same or different to the LCLC 240mm?
post #3488 of 28251
The NQ-3590 has the Asetek logo on it, I bet its the same as the LCLC 240mm. You could by the LCLC 240mm or the NQ-3590 and tell us. I plan on buying the LCLC 240mm and throwing my H50 in my HTPC.
post #3489 of 28251
xmisery claims he/she saw commentary which indicates the NQ-3590 is only 5% better than a H50.

Not sure what 5% means, little vague to me...
But if true and if the LCLC 240mm is exactly the same, than neither seems like a worthwhile buy.

I'm still searching for relevant comparative data and will post if I find anything.
Other HTPC components are a higher priority for me atm though...

You think? Come on, it has more surface area to do a more efficient heat exchange with. You don't need "relevant comparative data", all you need is just to buy and find out for your self. A 120mm radiator vs a 240mm radiator made by the same company, the 240mm should be a easy win. Just get the cooler already. If someone hasn't done a review on them yet it's gona be some time before they do, if anyone ends up doing it.
