. . . Did you use the screw's with "FINE" thread's, or the one's with the "Coarse" thread's???.........reason i ask is these Newer kit's that started to come with the AMD bracket set's came with 2 different type/set's of hold-down screws........[ the one's with the Coarse Threads are the No-No_one's!!! Suppose to not use with either of the plastic insert's; and because of the Threaded-matching_Metal_insert's for which are in the backplate bracket's are of "FINE" thread's...] I've heard that Corsair has realize'd and Stop including the Coarse Thread'd screw's for within their kit's now. . . . .{ .... but, i could be wrong and people are still getting both set's of the screw's... }

Oh I used the right screws man. Trust me.
post #3543 of 28251
I'm starting a new build with a new Tt Element S case and some older parts including an EVGA 750i mobo, 9800 GT AKIMBO vid card, and a Q6600 CPU. I decided to use the H50 and knowing that the quad CPU I have puts out some heat, I'm going to try the push/pull configuration on the H50. After some research and knowing I can switch to a different arrangement if this doesn't satisfy me, I am using a Scythe Gentle typhoon D1225C12B4AP-14 122mm on the inside of the radiator blowing to exhaust and another mounted outside the case pulling out. Other fans include the 230mm top exhaust fan, 2 120mm Noctua NF-P12 front fans w/filters and 2 Silenx Ixtrema 60mm exhaust fans located on the case rear next to—and blocking the screws to—the PCI slots. My Corsair 750 PSU also will be pulling cooler air up from the bottom of the case.

In past builds, I've been a proponent of positive case pressure and maintaining smooth and balanced airflow from front to rear. The configuration I've laid out above doesn't adhere to these principles, but blowing air in from the rear of the case per Corsair's recommendation just seem counter-intuitive to me and it also would disturb the smooth airflow from front to rear. I'm hoping that the top big boy fan will pull enough warm air out of the case to help keep my temps down. Any advice on this setup would be appreciated and taken into account. Thanks.

. . . . . OK, cool; BUT ya ended up with crack'd_collar sleeve insert's for the "ear-leg" part of the bracket, eh??? gzzzz, that had to have been a let down for the easy install and all.......sorry's to hear about's such event upon your install..........i know for me and my install, that i had to like hand-thread each of them through each one of those plastic collar's till they got free with that unthread'd part of the shank of the bolt's.......then when i tightn'd them down evenly, each one of the 4 leg's were like bent downwards, holding the pump_head down tight; But at that point each of the screw's got to where there was no more thread's to turn, and all four pretty much came to a stop/cease to turn any more/further & that's where it is setting now for here........with my idle temp's @ 28* & load on my Prime95 Blend or even Large FFT's = to 49* to 51* depending upon the ambient.......{ showing in my sig's with HWmonitor showing's temp's of min. & max....}

.......Yeah i agree with ya about's the "cheapy" metal ring hold-down, but it does serve it purpose........BUT, i have ordered one of those replacement bracket's from FrozenCPU already,.......like last week, BUT i think this SNOW for the East there is blocking/slowing up my delivery BIG time...[ cuz i am here on the West Coast.]
......only thing i don't like is the picture of makes it look like it is make of some kind of delrin/plastic-nylon material but a bit thicker like the original AMD bracket's thickness of . HOPEFULLY neither one of those 4 leg's of the bracket will "break".....

It looks like you will have plenty of fans and airflow, shouldn't have a problem. Most people go with exhaust. I was agonizing over adding more intake fans and came up with this simple test to see if I had enough case airflow:

Load the PC (I used Prime95)
Monitor temps (I used Realtemp and also a graph with Speedfan)
Open the side of the case and put a desktop fan blowing room air directly on radiator or push fan
See if your temps change.

Mine didn't budge a bit, so I figured the case airflow is fine, no sense spending money and time on fan bays and controllers.
Putting more powerful fans on the radiator would be about the only thing that would help. Although I've noticed a couple of posters say they've seen no improvement going from 2K to 3K rpm fans.

Sweet setup. Welcome to the club.
That GPU cooler looks wicked cool too.

I think a H50 is a step down from a TEC.

Does anyone have the H50 with an Antec 1200? If so, how is yours setup? Do you have pics? I will be receiving mine today at 11am. I am excited to rip my PC apart again. I actually enjoy getting and testing new things. Also, i am currently running an Ultra Chilltec TEC, will I notice a difference between the two? I currently use the push/pull method, and will be doing so with the H50. Just, contemplating how I am going to set it up on the 1200. Thanks for you time.....I will asked to be added if you don't mind, when I post some pics of my build, thanks again.

Yeah I pulled the trigger and ordered one too. . I think it is plastic. Oh well Im sure it will work much better than this other one. Guess well find out tho. TEST RESULTS to COME folks. Now if only I could measure the pressure difference that each bracket provides.

Hey, guys,

Tomorrow I am putting together my tubing/res mod. For $5, I bought some UV Red Dye from Napa Auto Parts,

Attachment 140890

but really have been trying to decide which of these mixes would be best suited for the H50, and am not sure if corrosion is an issue with the H50 (I know the block surface is copper... is there aluminum or copper in the radiator?) -- if so, I should probably add some Antifreeze as well, or some other anti-corrosive agent (what else can be used to prevent corrosion?)
A. Distilled water + Biocide (Pt-Nuke-Cu) + UV Dye
B. Distilled water + Biocide + Anti-Corrosive (antifreeze? Anything else I can use that would be compatible with UV Dye?)
C. Prepared mixture (i.e. ICE, Feser, etc.)
I'd like to do "A" unless corrosion is a concern... is it?
