Sup club, I just got my H50 tonight and I'm about to prep for installation. This will be my first Water Cooling install, and I'm a bit nervous. Any tips?

Installing the H50 is as easy, or easier, than installing an air cooler. Nothing to worry about. It's not at all like setting up a custom water loop, and doesn't have any of the risks that might come with such a setup.

Have fun, and definitely play around with the fan configuration if you don't like the temps after the initial install.

For anyone interested, I finished a mod on my case today, and rearranged the fan configuration on my H50. Here is my post with pics and test results:

Thanks to Sethy666 for giving me some helpful responses earlier today.

I'm pretty sure there were a few threads on their metric dimensions here

I guess the big question is, do you recommend intank or exhaust?

Well, I just switched from push/pull exhaust to push/pull, intake, and I got much better results from the second configuration. But, from reading other posts, I've seen both setups work best for different people. Just depends on your case size, overall airflow, et cetera. With intake, you definitely get the coolest air pushed through the rad. But, you need to have good enough exhaust to compensate for the H50 blowing the heated air into the case.

More info on Asetek coolers:

Again Corasir doesn't even make the H50, Asetek does. The engineers who make the H50 recommend the their unit to be in exhaust, for good reason to. I say listen to a trained engineer, not a untrained benchmarker at Corsair. The intake vs exhaust is more based on your GFX card and Case. Corsair recommends intake, but Asetek the company who actually makes the H50 recommends exhaust. Like I said it really has to do with your GFX card and case. If you have a GFX with an air handler that blows hot air out the rear of your case. Its a good idea to have the H50 in exhaust. If you have a Vapor-X type of GFX card with no air handler, its better to be intake. Also do you have a place for that hot air to go once its in your PC case. For the guys who have an air handlers on their GFX cards and their H50s in intake, need to be warned. Do to the season and AC'd rooms, hot air from your GFX card is mixing with the cool air inside the radiator of the H50. This mixing creates condensation. That condensation is moisture that is now being blowing into your PC. But don't pay me no mind, feel free to try any way you like, and post about it. That's what this site is here for.
