Anyways, for me intake has lower ambient temps in the case because my i7 runs relatively cool at around 36-31c idle, and sucking in cold outside air seems to be benefiting other components. As strange as it sounds, its working great, even though it sounds like somewhat of a counterproductive measure.
I to have a 920 @ 3Ghz. My loads temps are around yours but my idle is way lower than what yours is, +10°C lower. I'm guessing around the low 70°F for your ambient temperature. So let me get this right your H50's in intake? If so flip it, and and a few things to your case. Add a drive bay 5.25" intake fan, then add a shroud. You can get all that plus more at the The Corsair H50 Accessory Permalink. Check out what I did on my rig:

From what I understand the H50 has water inside them and the Asetek brand has a some sort of a liquid cooling fluid. Check some other Asetek coolers, NorthQ, Maingear, Alienware, HP, and others. Again Corasir doesn't even make the H50, Asetek does. The engineers who make the H50 recommend the their unit to be in exhaust, for good reason to. I say listen to a trained engineer, not a untrained benchmarker at Corsair. The intake vs exhaust is more based on your GFX card and Case. Corsair recommends intake, but Asetek the company who actually makes the H50 recommends exhaust. Like I said it really has to do with your GFX card and case. If you have a GFX with an air handler that blows hot air out the rear of your case. Its a good idea to have the H50 in exhaust. If you have a Vapor-X type of GFX card with no air handler, its better to be intake. Also do you have a place for that hot air to go once its in your PC case. For the guys who have an air handlers on their GFX cards and their H50s in intake, need to be warned. Do to the season and AC'd rooms, hot air from your GFX card is mixing with the cool air inside the radiator of the H50. This mixing creates condensation. That condensation is moisture that is now being blowing into your PC. But don't pay me no mind, feel free to try any way you like, and post about it. That's what this site is here for.

hi,

i am going to buy corsair h50 cooler today.

I wanted to know if I need to put TIM on my h50 or does it comes with a TIM on it as stock?

Thanks.

Of course, the tape on the H50 is no use if you've used it already and need to reseat the H50. Most people just use AS5 or MX3, myself included, because it's cheap and can be used many times - both these thermal pastes have a curing time so you may think that your results are terrible when you first apply, give it some time. If you want to get the same thermal paste you want to look for Shin Etsu, it's normally harder to find and more expensive but will probably yield slightly better temperatures - it also has no curing time. Results and comparisons vary a lot, but if you want to improve on Shin Etsu one option could be IC Diamond 7. Again, it's hard to find and more expensive but you may find that it performs better than anything previously mentioned. Shin Etsu and ICD7 are very close in performance and different reviews will tell you that Shin Etsu is better. Of the many members in this post and on the Corsair forums nobody has tried using Indigo extreme on an H50, although I believe that the latest batch of products from Indigo would be compatible with the hot-plate style of the H50. If your stock thermal paste has run out, then the cheap alternatives are AS5 and MX3, the expensive replacements would be Shin Etsu (the same stuff which you get in the first place) or ICD7.

Thanks

I got an installed an H50 yesterday so I'd like to join the club

But I do have a question regarding the h50. My idle and load temps are a bit higher than my TRUE, which I didn't expect. I'm sitting at 3.2ghz right now and idling in the upper 30s with ~20 degree ambient temps. Load temp is also about 3 degrees higher than with the TRUE. Is there some cure time i should expect before temps improve? Are my fans just not sufficient (I have two antec tri-cools in push pull exhausting from the back of my 1200 at the moment)? I'm starting to think my processor is just a heat pig and I'm just not going to have decent temps regardless of what I do. I did check and the block is seated as well as can be expected.

i think i broke the top intel overclock record for this chip today... hitting an astounding 4.0ghz stable, prime95 has been running small fft's for 3 hrs and no problems yet, will run linpack later this cpu's stock clock is 2.8ghz

P.S: my H50 is keeping it at 38C idle 56C load

They are pretty silent up to about 1200-1400RPM which is good for pressure.

The Corsair fan also goes down to 600RPM @ 35% PWM.

You might want to add a static pressure and price column too (maybe a power rating too).
The R4 isn't really a 90CM fan, maybe 2/3s that at best imo... It moves a lot of air but has no static pressure from my understanding. I have about 6 of them heh. I usually run them as low as my Zalman MFC1 Plus controller will go But the LEDs are too dim to be appreciated at that speed

I have two 1450RPM GentleTyphoons coming today so I'll set up the H50 and give it a ride when I get home

Also what's the best way to orient the block/radiator? I would think that one would want the tubing below the radiator so more heat is drawn upward and away from the returning water... eh?

. Your temps do sound a little high although I know nothing about Intel temperatures I used to use an antec tri-cool with the Corsair fan and had mediocre results, but I couldnt wait to replace the fans and I'm glad I did. The noise and temperature results were fantastic.
