Alternatively, you could mount one fan on the outside of the case, have the radiator and other fan on the inside of the case, mounted at the back. You have lots of options.
okay cool. thank you very much, youve been a huge help, as this is all new to me. i hope to see some cooler temps later on tonight. i thought 50C on idle as a little much for a core temp with the stock cooler. i really hope this brings it down to around 30C. thanks again, i will post more later on the status of it!

There should be a nice list on the very first page of this thread. Personally, I use the Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (1850 rpm) double ball-bearing fans and they work awesome!

No problems. Just to give you a heads up. When you get to the point where you are about to screw down the pump/block onto the cpu, try to do 1-2 turns on each screw, in a diagonal/crossing pattern so you are applying pressure evenly and it gets a good solid mount. You will definitely see big improvements with this cooler! Enjoy!

I just bought this cooler today and had never heard about it. the guy at the store talked me into it. when i got home i read all the reviews and am excited to get it running.

I plan on doing a push/pull exhaust. I have a 120mm fan now of good quality and I have a manual fan adjuster pci adapter. (turn knob). even though this is not identical to stock h50 fan, will i be able to match the fan speeds well enough using the bios? Or is it best to use the pwm mb connector? I would like to try and avoid spending additional $$ on fans if I can make it work efficiently.

Thanks for advice.

i see. seeing as i'm only cooling an i5 with a 4.0 ghz overclock i think i'll go with the dual.

what difference did you get from the stock single 120mm setup?
My temps dropped about 10-12C cooler. (depends on ambient temperature)

I have shrouds on both push & pull

This is what I remember, correct if im wrong.
Ill stick to paired fans then.

As above...

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's

I'm really pleased with them.

I did 15 passes of IBT max at 4Ghz HT on @ 1.3v before fine tuning my vcore and the highest I ever saw was 73c and that was like twice it hit it - was mostly 71-72c the whole hour+.

I run 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's in push/pull exhaust in my Corsair 800D. I have the push/pull config mounted exhausting vertically out the top sandwiched between 2 120mm sharkoon silent eagle SE's also exhausting out the top. I flipped the rear fan into intake, installed a 120mm bay cooler as intake, and have a 140mm fan at the bottom for intake.

SO i just installed the h50 in my pc... i was seeing core temps around 50C... now in coretemp its showing:

core0: 40
core1: 37
core2: 40
core3: 35

BUT my motherboard (EVGA x58 SLI LE) is showing on the LED on the board a "actual cpu temperature" of 25. before i installed this, it was reading like 36-38.

Did i do everything correctly? seems to me as the temps are STILL HIGH with the watercooling... is something wrong or am i just crazy? please help, im new to this all... thanks!

i think the "turbo" is enabled in the bios, the dummy oc is disabled...
hyperthreading is on...
all the fan settings are set to MANUAL and at 100% (so the pump gets full power) but it doesnt list like CPU_FAN, JSYS1_FAN...etc... so i dont know which is which or how to set those individually...
