Very nice! I have a similar setup. Bought a couple GT 1850's and a YL Medium Clear/BLUE LED's and even with these fans at full throttle, they are pretty darn quiet as it is. Enjoy your new fans!

Here's my setup




Nothing special and yes, horrible cable management cause I'm lazy and it's hard to do in that case I am very satisfied with it.

Kill, I was researching this to answer my own question posted a while ago re: whether corrosion was a concern or not in deciding what liquid to use in my mod, and found this thread posted by Skorpio, the First H50 Modder:

Assuming he's correct, it confirms what you say above. Copper block + alum rad = potential for corrosion.

Yep, I looked into this for someone else the other day. It's actually posted on the corsair forums.

I guess it would by default as it's for a 240mm system.

I'm still determining if the NQ-3590 and LCLC 240 are exactly the same.
If they are the LCLC 240 might be the better buy, as preliminary checks reveal the NQ-3590 to be pricier.



I don't suppose anyone's seen load temps for a stock H50, with a similar CPU, OC'd to 3.8?
My 965 is a C3 version overclocked to 3.8 Ghz with 1.375 V...so not totally the same. My temps with a stock H50 in push/pull with 1600 rpm S-Flex fans and 20 C ambient room temp is 27-28 C Idle and 44 C load (3 hors prime 95 blended test).

Here's a few of my final H50 Mod Pics, WITH CABLE MANAGEMENT!

I absolutely wish I would have had the $$ to buy a nicer Corsair HX*** Modular PSU at the time, as you will see what a PAIN IN THE A** it is to clean up all those cables, but well worth it. Temps improved quite a bit, and with that 9800GT (LOVIN' THE PHYSX!) below my already HOT! HD4890, it has allowed not just the CPU to run cooler, but the whole system.

I had originally intended to paint the inside, sleeve the PSU, and everything else, but I'm ready to get rid of this tower and build a newer i7, so I ditched that idea... My next case is going to be completely modified though

Temps - Q9400 @ 3.6GHz 1.29vCore

I've been having some issues with stability at 3.8GHz as of late... My Maximus Extreme somehow set my OC to 5.2GHz and Overvolted my chip I think... No idea how it happened. Just set it manually to 475 FSB x8 Multi and at exit bios, it freaked out! Oh well, it'll get worked out.

H50 Setup as Exhaust => Ultra Kaze 3k 38mm=> Shroud => Radiator => Corsair H50 Stock Fan=> Exhaust Top of Case.

I found that my Kaze Slipstream didn't work as well as a Pull Fan, as the Corsair H50 Fan. Now the setup seems to be quite nice, and quiet, as the Ultra Kaze and my Slipstream are both still connected to the fan controller, as well as the two 240mm HAF932 Silent Fans, which move a LOT of air, but are very quiet. I'm one happy camper.

Intel Burn Test:
Minimum = 29c 29c 34c 34c
Maximum = 53c 53c 53c 53c

Prime95:
Minimum = 29c 29c 34c 34c
Maximum = 46c 46c 46c 46c

I think it has turned out pretty darn well! YES, I still have the guide/writeup to finish... I haven't forgotten, just been super super super busy still. Everytime I get a chance to sit down, I get called to do something

I promise it will be done! Sorry about the pics, still taken on my blackberry...

PICS:

Thank God for Zipties!
