Hey fellas what's up.

Just bought the H50 2 days ago, installed it, and I'm very happy with the results I've been getting.
Mind you, I am some what of a newbie to the PC gaming, and I've recently upgraded my PC and some of the components, so a lot of this was done through researching.

Here is my rig with the Corsair H50:


Temp. w/out gaming:


Temp. @ gaming:


I'm pretty happy with it. It keeps the temperature on the cpu down. I have it oc'd respectively at 3.33 from 3.0.
What ya'll think?

Hey man, looks good. Researching is your best friend bro. That's how I learned most of my stuff. That and posting in forums, forums can be great help in your quest for a new rig or whatever you are doing to your PC. Those temps you have there are great. What are your ambient temps like?

See that's the stuff i'm still new at. Some guy posed that same question to me when I was tampering with my 9800gt.
How do I find out the ambient temperatures?

Also, the #'s are great, however, my pc has been shutting down recently when I play L4D 2 or MWF2...? I honestly don't know why.

Earlier today I played for like 40min. and it was fine, then I played tonight, it worked for like 20min, then shut down and restarted...

I just had my mb replaced like 1mo. ago...hope my cpu isn't damaged...

I know, I know, I think I may have messed this up because I was reading the "Push-Pull" technique, and removed my Raidmax Prestigio case fan from there and replaced it with the Corsair one.
I read the article and saw that you can do this technique, so I used that fan in front of the radiator. I messed up because I don't know what the rpm or the cfm is of the case fan?
However, the results speak for themselves.

Lol, sorry for the long description there, but straight to the point, one fan in the back of the radiator is the Corsair, and the one in front is the Raidmax Prestigio case fan.

case fans tend not to have a very high rpm/cfm rating if they came with the case... thier usually there just to say that they are included, they dont perform at all even in my case i had a stock 140mm cooler master HAF 932 rear case fan, it moved little to no air, so i removed it and replaced it with an R4(2000rpm 90cfm)

Ya, I'm new to this, and thank you for the advice. I will eventually get some better fans to do this push-pull technique. So far it's working ok, but with your advice, I'm guessing it can work 10x better with the way it's supposed to be.
Thanks for the advice

I think you read my post wrong if that is what you are referring to. A more stable supply of power like the PSU is better.

Ambient temps is the temperature in your room. Only you can find that lol.

As far as shutting down, maybe something is overheating? Card, NB, Vregs. Something else in your system that is not your CPU. Or it can just not be stable. Have you stress tested your overclock?

No, I haven't used any particular program to test the cpu overclock. The only program I have used is FurMark to test the stability of the GPU--which is fine.
Yet, I have tested the game with the CPU at normal ghz of 3.0. And it still occurs.
I have made sure to plug in everything correctly--RAM, vga card, cpu, etc.
I think 1 thing that may be throwing it off, if you look at my 1st picture closely and see the connection to my harddrive, it's a bit loose. I was attempting to do a semi-clean wire tuck, and in the process, I pulled the wiring up, and the tab cracked a bit. So I used some crazy glue to get it back to normal. It has worked, and I don't have the problem when using the computer to browse the web or anything else. It only occurs when I am gaming?

Oh, and as for the ambient temp., I believe my living room is around 55c-65c (without the heater on).
