[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 594

post #5931 of 28303
I just went to CompUsa and grabbed a new one. It wasn't spraying coolant everywhere... just leaking. I'm so thankful that I live literally almost next door to a CompUsa/Tiger Direct/System store that stocks these things.

The new system is setup with the lines having the least amount of bend possible. It is working great again. In fact, I feel this CPU cooler is working better than the first one I had. Maybe they revised it, or maybe mine had a manufacturing flaw. Either way, temps are lower. Idle temps are the same, but peak temps are lower. It's on a pull/push setup, taking air from the outside, since my NZXT Tempest case has the two 140MM fans up top to vent the heat.

Stability is mine again!

I am thinking about returning the old unit directly to CompUsa with the new receipt saying the new one is leaking, but I kinda feel that may be unethical. It's not like I NEED two of these things. I suppose I could just have Corsair replace mine under warranty and keep it as a spare, or possibly sell it.

What do you all think I should do?

Yeah, i thought so too. It's just that the temps were better when i used the stock radiator and didn't do any mods to the H50. Any thoughts? A friend here said that the 240 radiator might be restrictive. what do u guys think?

I'll be dissecting the H50 again tomorrow. I'll use the original radiator back with the reservoir. I hope i can get better results.

Sell it to me for really2 cheap!!! Hahaha! just want the radiator. Since my experiment with a 240 rad is kinda showing bad results, i would like to see what 2x120 rad might do

Can u? U've already got a replacement

I just got a new H50 and i'm loving it! It's a huge improvement over some other air cooling that i've had before. Allows me to reach a much higher overclock.

Now that CPU cooling is solved, time to find a way to cool my NB from 70+ to something lower...

The radiator appears to be fine. The leaks seem to be coming from where the hose meets the radiator.

If someone wants to buy it, $50 via paypal plus ground shipping. What are you guys willing to pay for it? The pump works fine and the radiator is intact. Worst case scenario, you just RMA it with Corsair and get a brand new one. I will include the original receipt.

House would, I am sure of it. I have a bit more of a moral encompass, but not much more.

I would feel better either RMAing it with Corsair, or selling it to someone else so they can RMA it for a brand new unit.

Then again... WWHD?

or a combination, RMA it, its then a good unit and return it. Its a fully functional unit, they can resell it like many Box Stores do.

hey guys is the only way to use speedcontrol fan setting for the radiator fans if you use a y cable splitter for push/pull setup by cutting 1 of the yellow wires on 1 of the fans? is there anyway other than having to cut a wire? I guess I can plug them into two seperate spots in the motherboard but the wire has to travel towards the ram slots and I don't really like that.

do any of you have your fan speed controlled? did you opt to cut one of the wires or what method did you guys use?

thanks!

You have a NB block? Just do what I did in my H50 mod, and include the NB in the loop
