I recently got the Lancool K62 case together with the system listed below in the signature, Corsair H50, i7 930 oc @4ghz etc

Impressions so far, given that its my first windowed PC, I love the case, find I look inside the machine a fair bit, have kept it stock but with the Vapor X 5870 card being a fair length it (together with the HD case) means the air flow from lower 1000rpm 120mm front fan is probably not all that it could be.

I have the rear mounted H50 rad with the Corsair supplied 120 fan installed as intake (not yet on push-pull) and used the spare Lian Li 120mm fan in the slot above the Hd cage at the front of the machine to blow into the case,across the top of the graphics card and heatsink area, with the 2 top chassis 1000rpm 140mm fans exhausting out. I did reverse the Corsair fan to exhaust 9per some views here in the thread) but for me, internal temps rose.

In a presently now warm room the idle numbers are.. (looks at Core temp..42, 39. 42, 38). On OCCT stress test at 100%, the figures rise to on average to mid 80s, that does concern me some.

I have opened various real life tasks..numerous youtube videos, Assassins Creed 2, blu-ray film, Photoshop etc, and found the temps at average of high 40s - mid 50s. and stable.

I cannot see when I am likely to be doing all that at the same time, so I guess that the temps for the PC appear okay in the 'real world' so to speak.

The exhaust top fans seem to do their job too, however still look to change H50 radiator fan and get two for push/pull, if forum members have any recent views on this, (..yes am plowing through the thread slowly!)

I have two slots taken with blu-ray player, and another dvd drive below that, so am sticking with the spare Lian Li 120mm fan in the space left in the top cage cage meantime.

Any views/comments are welcome, bearing in mind am new to this please.

Am looking for a 'cool' reliable system,.. rather than 'ice cold' (and more costly)

Akasa Apache and Gentle Typhoons are 2 fans I keep seeing appearing as good fans for the job..?

Thanks for reading. -))
What batch number is your 930?

Hey and welcome.

The two fans you mention have relatively light CFM rates. For rad cooling you need to be a little higher ~ 70 CFM+

There is a listing of fans on the front page of this thread of the most commonly used fans people are using for their H50.

Push / pull is always a great way to go with this unit. Whether thats an intake or exhaust configuration will be dependent on your set up. Ive used both and have found intake is good for the cooler months and exhaust works well in the hotter months.

Good case cooling and cable management is essential for any system but it seems more so with the H50.

Shrouds... again, these can help temp wise. If space is tight, suggest a shroud between the push fan and the rad. If space isnt an issue, try a shroud between the rad and the pull fan as well. See my sig for making a shroud.

TIM: always topical What did you use? My current favs are Shin Estu (stock for this unit - albeit a little thick) or MX-2/3 (see graph).

Welcome again and have fun!

Hey everyone. Has anyone tried or heard of anyone using Indeigo Extreme with the H50. It looks like some pretty good stuff.

I hear is hard to get, expensive ($US20) and you get two applications. I havent heard of many people using it. Its not like your normal TIM paste and does not work with some HS.

Nobody here has used it as far as we know. I tried to check if it would be compatible with the H50 but I couldnt really work it out, I think it is but you'd want to research that thoroughly.

And yes, it's only two applications and is expensive!

Thanks Sethy666.

Stock is the short answer, the cable management is good, but the flow of air is not yetIi think 100% right, even though as I said am not looking to have ice cold stats, if it runs well am happy, tonight have been on browsers, gaming, and here in the thread and my temps are ..42, 40, 39, 40. The room am in is warm.


And thanks for the info about shrouds too. ))
