[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 479

post #4781 of 28251
hey guys I just purchased a corsair h50 hydro and it should be arriving soon. I read on corsair blogs any many forums that the push/pull setup will give me lower temps on my core. Can anyone recommend some good fans to use or tell me what fans they use? So far I been googling looking around on forums but im still somewhat confused it seems like everyone is using different fans. I read on bitech that the best static pressure 120mm fan they ran and tested was the scythe gentle typhoon 1450 it produces 21db @ 50cfm, which seems to be what corsair blog recommends that you get a two 120mm fans of the same type both producing about 50cfm. With this setup would I keep the fans on full power RPM or should I have it controlled and throttled by the MB?

Thanks for your help guys.

Indeed that's right. static pressure is one thing that's often overlooked. You might say oh but this fan flows 100cfm but you put it on a H50 and hardly any air comes out the other side. The Gentle Typhoons are not the greatest CFM fans ever, but they do great on coolers and rads.

I've been wanting to try a pair on my H50. I'm speaking from test results and posts from others. Can't go wrong with them.

I would recommend what you just mentioned, but, the slightly faster ones; Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (1850rpm's). I run mine full power and they are pretty darn quiet for the amount of air they push. You can't go wrong with these fans!

I dont have 3 pairs of hands and my cases CPU cooler cutout on the mobo tray is not the right size/shape to be able to use that. So I have to wonder how much of a pain in the arse installation will be without the sticky pads.

i been looking at this review and debating to either get a GT 1450 or 1850, I acutally ordered both speeds from newegg they should be coming soon.
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...air-h50_7.html

seems like the temp didn't really drop that much past 1500rpm.

any feedback guys?

Also I seen a YT video of some guy and his corsair h50 at 4ghz his fans seemed pretty loud in the video.

I have 23c ambients. I have 2 GT 1850's as push/pull on the radiator and some decent airflow in my case. With that, I'm idling at around 30c-36c and 100% load with 55c-60c.

Granted, that's just stock, I could definitely lower the vcore on this clock and get the temps lower, but, I just wanted to try and mimic your clock settings and get you a rough idea.
my ambient room temp is about 23C as well. I have the NZXT Tempest Evo case, so there are 6 fans stock. im using push/pull on the h50 radiator like this:

case<-stock fan<-radiator<-h50 fan

my idle is 39-36-39-35 right now. i dont understand this at all.

EDIT: if i do attempt to tighten the screws on the pump i dont have to reapply TIM or anything would i?

and if i took it completely off to reseat it on the i7, would AS5 with the pea method do the trick? and do i have to reapply it in a year or something?
