+1 again. yes didn't mean to take it off topic. wanted to really see similar set-ups as mine using the H50. I will PM soon as I do have quite a few questions.

Sorry to the rest of you. i didn't mean to steal thread. microcenter down the street has this cooler for the cheap and wanted to get some ideas from the owners of.

Ok, I just put my G.Skill sticks in first. I've re-read a link on the method of overclocking the RAM and the cpu. If I understood somewhat the technique, basically whatever the CPU core speed is on the FSB should match the DRAM frequency right?
I.e. I currently have the CPU at 3501.2MHz, and my G.Skill DRAM frequency is 389.0MHz. I dunno...I'm confused.

I have the DRAM fsb set to Auto, and it has it at a 1:1 ratio.

**Update:
Do you guys think it can possibly be my new psu? I've been doing a little research on the Coolmax psu's and I see a huge mixture of reviews.
Should I downgrade back to my Enermax 500w?

Hey guys I was wondering if I only use 1 fan exhaust would I set it up with the exhaust in front of the rad or behind of it?

I'd put the fan in front of the rad.

case>rad>fan

That is if you can mount it that way.

Guys,

I think ive messed up and overtightened the mounting screws.

All four bushings on my mounting plate are now sticking up at one corner(the corner with the small tab that clips the bushing into the retention bracket) as in they are not flat to the metal mounting plate. And the screw head is somewhat "embedded" or whatever into the plastic bushing.

What should I do ? .. keep imn mind if i remove the H50 i have no thermal compound nor anything to clean it to replace it.

Im totaly screwed here..

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.
do you keep your GT-15's on full 12v max RPM? or do you have it controlled? I know GT 15's say db 28, but usually in real world testing the db rating jumps even higher right? at idle what would you say is the loudest most noticable fan / sound on your computer?

Thanks

Yeah I currently have a push pull exhaust mounted in the rear 120mm fan slot, the problem is I'm not really seeing any great temps becaue I have it set as exhaust and my vapor x dumps hot air into the case. When I set it to intake it makes a loud whiny noise against the metal of the case so exhaust is really my only option. I'm thinking the 2nd doesn't really help at all because it's blowing the 4890s hot air into the rad. Proof would be I'm running a stock clocked amd 940 on push pull and right now I'm getting a 38c temp read. I think that was the same temp when I only had 1 fan.

It helps both. You can make a shroud from an old 120mm case fan by ripping out the inner guts. If I had a choice I would buy this one. Just make sure it will fit before you order.
