That's what I did to get the temps I'm getting. From asking around, I guess if you have a fairly strong top fan (or two) that you can flip around, going push/pull intake will suit you better than exhausting it out the back. I was concerned at first, but it definitely has made a huge difference in my case.

I'm not even using decent TIM for god sake I'm 26-28C's on idle or low load.


*Whoops double post, meant to add it to my other one. Can't seem to find the delete option sorry mods.

You'll see a degree or 2 drop in temps probably - but like the other guy said, your temps are great already

Reapplied my TIM. Changed the Top Fan on my Element S to pure exhaust, swapped both fans on the radiator to push, pull, intake, and added a fan to my hard drive bays.

The results? [..]

Huge difference. I opened the window in my room and got it down to 23C.

My Prime load after a half hour was about 37C.

Mind you these are slightly undervolted (I have one of the weird C3's that set their stock voltage to 1.4) stock clocks, but impressive nonetheless (my room's is the room that traps the most heat in the house).
Really nice temps You must have some sweet airflow going through that thing now!

will lapping my 945 help out more? I was thinking about it. Anyone have experience with lapped chip and H50?
I don't think anyone in this thread has mentioned lapping the processor or the heatsink, though I'd love to see the results. I checked the heatsink on the H50 and it was already as flat as my steel ruler, so I left it. But lapping the processor could see a temp drop.

That top fan should be exhaust already Did you already change it once already? I would leave it as exhaust personally, hot air builds in the top of the case and one of the Antecs key features is that massive fan getting rid of it all.

Also, we have incredibly similar rigs. Same cooler, same case, even the same DVD-drives I think

2. thanks!


Have nice weekend*
A pleasure to help!

I would just get a fan controller if you're going for a really highspeed fan, there was a guide around somewhere for wiring up 4-pin fans to PSU+Motherboard, I think it was in the watercooling section for radiator fan control. But I cant find it

A different way to install ... .And losing your factory warranty.

Attachment 132953

Tubes 8-6mm.

Attachment 132956

Only need unscrew the two screws to remove cover and place the pump tubes.

Attachment 132957 Attachment 132958

Filled with ethylene glycol and deionized water (antifreeze) to prevent galvanic corrosion (aluminum radiator and copper block:swearing, as before, but in a different color .

Well, isnt that wierd. I wonder why they did that? Any way to unlock??

Im glad thats sorted. You could have slowly gone insane... with the rest of us, trying to figure out the issue

Well I got my new build together (minus gaming GPU / sound card), and while it looks great I can't say I'm so happy with the results of this H50 thus far.
BIOS reads i5 750 @ ~42c (stock clocks / settings); I have 2x 70CFM Yate Loons push/pull on rad drawing air from outside as recommended

Had pump connected to CPU fan header w/ fan control off (which had worse results than connecting right to PSU).
Only other thing I can think of would be to reseat / reapply TIM, but I used up the last bit during installation so I'll have to order more.
