You can get them at any home hardware store, they are 6-32 threaded, just choose the length you need

Best way to wire the H50?

I just got my H50 the other day but due to a HD failure I wont have an OS for proper temp vewing and good CPU loading till next week but want to get my cooling all button down before that.

On my board I have 2 4-pin PWM fan headers and 3 3-pin. My 4-pin are CPU and System_1_Fan. Then I have a Power, System_2_Fan and NB header that are the 3 pin type. Right now I have the Fan on the CPU and the Pump on the power header (since the fan is a 4 pin and the pump is a 3 pin.) In the BIOS I have turned off all smart fan sensing and my pump shows about 1400 rpm and the fan is 1700 rpm.

So question, Do these speeds look right? Should I hook the fan / pump up differently?

Thanks!

Killhouse beat me too it. :-)

but seeing I have not had time to get to the hardware store.. for me I mounted 2 screws diagonally outside and then same thing for the other two on the inside, holds very strongly... I will be at least adding 2 more on the outside as they hold the weight of the entire setup.

you are perfectly fine. pump is rated at 1450rpm stock and the corsair fan is rated at 1650rpm also i believe.

No doubt it's a bit overrated. I had yateloon medium highs on push pulls and it still gave me crap temps. I figure it maybe due to lack of power from the pump, I duno.

Those speeds are fine, however if you can hook up the pump to your PSU via a molex connector, much better

I did that to my E758a while back and it worked fine. However about 8 months down the line I had a RAM slot go, but I don't think it was because of that.
I was using the Corsair H50 stock, unmodified, with the included fluid. Essentially, antifreeze.

I just replaced the board. I said the heck with it. It runs fine, and I cleaned, it, but I ordered an identical board and installed it. I run my 5970 with A GT 240 for Physx.

The old board is cleaned up. The old water block unit has a RMA number. When it is returned, I will offer it for sale here. Lets say... $60, for a new unit. The Motherboard was a DFI Lanparty X48 T2R with the Flame Freezer. The new board seems to be OK. I cleaned up my 5970 since I sure as heck am not shelling out all that money to replace it. I figured, the board can be replaced at $129.99 plus $2.99 shipping.

I want the insides of my machine to be TOP NOTCH, and I refuse to take any chances.

The old board works fine, and the new cooler will be BRAND NEW.

I also have a BFG GTX 295 I am selling that is brand new if anyone wants it.

Shoot me a private messages with what you want to pay for these things, and I will make a heck of a deal for you. The GTX 295 was a RMA return from BFG Tech. It has been run for 4 hours to test the stability of my old board just in case, otherwise, it has not been used.

I have an RMA for the board as well in the works, just in case... so if you all want to wait, I will have a Corsair H50 Water Block, a DFI Lanparty UT X48 T2R DDR2 board, and a GTX 295, all for sale with warranties.

Anyway, the new cooler is working great, and the new board has not failed the stability test yet. It is running now.

I would get a Fermi board, but I know my HD 5970 will out perform a single Fermi card, and I still have Physx support in hardware.

I also have a MSI P45 Platinum made for Overclocking Core 2 Duo CPUs beyond the 2000MHz FSB. I ran my E8200 at over 4GHZ with a 2008FSB, and it ran perfect. The box even says designed for a 2008MHZ FSB.

With all the nVidia scandals, the GTX 295 being pulled from production due to nVidia losing money on them, and the massive amount of CUDA emulation, I think I will stick with ATI as the primary and nVidia for backwards compatibility.

I would get an i7 board and CPU, but my overclocks are fast enough as they are, and I like the Core 2 architecture as it consumes less power and produces less heat. Maybe when the i9 comes out and i7 prices fall dramatically, I may consider, but right now, the lower latency, higher clocks and overall performance of the machine is more than I could ever use.

I thought about using the GTX 295 as a Physx board, but that would be overkill like nuking an ant pile.

My goal is to build a PC with the highest performance per power consumption. It is a hard task, but it is worth it in the end because it runs cooler, uses more broad spectrum proven technology, and allows me to expand.

I used to be a nVidia fan boy at heart, but now I have lost the faith. Yes, the GTX 480 is faster than the 5870, but if you overclock a GTX 480, it WILL overheat, where the 5870 takes it and asks for more.

I wonder why there are no benchmarks that go into detail about the GTX 480 vs the HD 5970. They both consume the same amount of power, they both run the same features... And the 5970, despite what many thing, is not 2 5870s in Crossfire on one board. It is two GPUs working together and the memory can be shared with almost no latency.

If I hold on to my GTX 295, it will become a relic of times passed, and in the years to come, it will be valuable. I know my Voodoo 5 5500 AGP has value, as it is mint condition.

No, my 3dfx cards are not for sale. They are my shrine to 3dfx. I have EVERY 3dfx product ever produced. I know, I have a mental illness, but it's so much fun building an old Athlon 1200 and dropping in the 5500, just for nostalgia.

If nVidia released a 3dfx edition, I would buy it, if only to show my grandchildren what it was like when I was growing up. I'm sure they will have much better game consoles...

But really, 3dfx started the 3D PC accelerator business as we know it today.

I will keep you posted. Let me know if anyone wants to acquire any of these parts.

I still say the IBM Monochrome Display Adapter (MDA) was the most powerful graphics card on the planet, and the Atari Pong console was the best console ever.

Also, Oxygen is over-rated, and boobs are more important.

My Camera was MIA and I took some sad IPhone pics but if someone wants to see them I can post them.

I will post one more followup on temps after the weekend of Gaming an finishing up Bioshock2 lol.
TIMs like Shin Etsu do like a few heat cycles to settle in to all the little dips and crevices. Keep an eye on it over the next few days.

Send your photos - we love eye candy

Good luck with your gaming
