Wouldnt be much use for me as im remount my stuff very often and its not as available or as cheap as MX3.

About over volting a pump. Personally sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. I don't think you'd see any change in temps. If it's being pumped away from the heat source faster, and it's moving through the radiator faster, not cooling down as fast, and not getting as hot, then wouldn't that yield identical results?

I don't know the full in's and out's of water cooling but it would seem there would be a sweet spot for the volume of water moving in a particular setup between moving too much water, or not moving enough water.

Perhaps someone more educated then my water rookie self can explain in some detail. Always willing to actually learn a bit.

Before I got my H50 I had seriously been considering the Noctua NH-D14 so today I decided to browse the Overclock NH-D14 owners club and OMG! That thing is ridiculously huge!!! It covers the whole friggin upper portion of the MB including NB. There is of course some bashing of the H50 and how you need to mod the heck out of it to get comparable temps (they refer actually to this club) but for a normal overclock on my 965 C3 (i.e. 3.8 ghz) max temps don't go above 43 C after 3 hours of Prime 95 and my set-up is very "clean" (see attached pics). Why in the world would you want something as big as the NH-D14 blocking all your airflow??? I just don't get it.

Yea it's not cheap! But it seems it is the best! Someone may be willing to pay £7 for 0.5 grams, if it means they can knock a few degrees off their temps.

Who knows, H50 + 2 x Excaliber fans + Shin Etsu (+ maybe some other mods members of this forum have done) could = high end water cooler beater!?

All for a fraction of the price & hassle!

Well, the more powerful the pump is the higher the flow rate, lowering CPU temps.

I can see your logic but it isnt quite right, please dont take that the wrong way.

The more turbulance there is in the radiator the better the cooling of the water, this is the reason i have my pump just before my radiator.

The H50 has been designed to be low flow and high restriction, this is why the block has very small gaps for the water to flow though, maximizing the heat transfer while the water is in the waterblock.

More like High end air cooling beater, the H50's good but its limits have been shown.

Those Excaliber fans might look nice (which they do) but they wont provide they same static pressure or pure air flow compared to other fans that people use on the H50 Rad, fans such as the Sythe Ultra Kaze 3000's, Delta's and San Aces would all cool the Radiator better. Whether you would see a temp difference I dont know, it depands on the heat load.

None takin. I knew I didn't know for sure, or acted like I did. Only reason I keep posting and reading here, it's for the most part a smug attitude free zone for computer talk.

Good, we like a common place we can pop in at and talk in.

I also enjoy answering questions, so everyone keep them coming!

Noooo! the H50 is far better than high end air cooling as it comes out of the box, beats the hell out of my Zalman CNPS9700!

But when i said high end water cooling, what i really meant is entry level custom water coolers! As opposed to these sealed unit water coolers.

I agree theres no way an H50 will ever compete with the really expensive liquid cooling!!

A much as i love my 9700 (a huge amount of love), its nothing compared to the latest line up of heatsinks, it was released 5 years ago.

The H50's a good starter, i used it as a bridge between air cooling and a full custom loop. The custom loop performs quite alot better as expected. I cant realy see how you could get a H50 to perform anywhere near as good without huge mods. You might as well do no mods and just save up for a custom loop.

Also why don't you think the Excaliber will provide good static flow? In the specs they claim to have "outstanding high air pressure"?

Also the noise levels on those 3 fans you suggest are like jet turbines aren't they?
