This is a copy from the first post of this thread:

http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...50-battle.html

In that post, it shows that in only one situation, H50 intake wins.

Also, this is a quote from the first post (by Killhouse):

With your graphics card I thoroughly recommend exhaust setup - both fans pushing air OUT of the case

EDIT: although you do get 1-2C higher temperatures with an exhaust setup it's better for the system as a whole.

fan->rad->fan sucking air in if you have good airflow

fan<-rad<-fan exhaust if you dont

since you have a 932 like me, do intake

... did ya by chance read's upon my helping out this other guy on

page 524, post#5235 & post#5237 ? ? ?

I thought I would pose the question I originally posted here to my fellow H50 owners:

I've been doing some testing of my H50 using the RealTemp plugin for RivaTuner. I will let this tool capture temp readings at a 1 sample/sec rate for different scenarios (e.g. idle, prime95, 3dmark06, stock vs. oc). I can then see what the min/max/avg temps are for the cores, under different scenarios, for a fixed length of time.

When I see reviews online giving temps for idle and loads are they giving an average or a one-time snapshot temp? Some of them read like they are just taking a 1-time temp at the end of a X min long scenario run. But, I know when I run prime95 blended for an hour my core temps definitely vary over that time. So, wouldn't I be more interested in what my average temp over that run was versus what the temp was at the end of the run?

My responses in this post made me think about these details more. Most of the reviews I see don't really explain exactly how the temp numbers were captured/calculated.

I believe most online reviews tend to use maximum temperature over the time period. Though unfortunately you find that most review sites are biased towards a product and will publish anything which favours them

Your average method is a good one - another way is to plot a graph of temperatures over time.

Oh, Killhouse? I think there's a typo in your first post. It's the link titled:

Contagion's Fan Shoud + Push/Pull Testing

It appears we're missing an 'r'?
