I'd just make some. Take a couple old 120mm fans and clip out the blades, sand smooth (should you be truly OCD like myself) and you're good to go

Agreed.

I made a few for other uses but it took me like 10 minutes to cut the middle section out and smooth it with my Dremel.

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.
Well glad you are RMA'ing what you can and replaced what you were able to. This way you have no worries whatsoever, good move if you were able to at ATM. I would pick up the parts, but I just wasted the money I had saved up . Anyhow, good luck with your sale bro.

Well I registered here after doing a lot of research on the H50. I bought one and am happy to say I will add this bad boy to every build I do for all my friends. The temps I have now over air cooling are great.

My temps idle are about 31 and under load 44/45. I did run the prime95 torture test and it peaked at 50 but settled in at 48. Gaming though in bad company 2 for example I never see over 45. Before with the air cooler the chip was hitting 60 to 62 easy in game and failed the torture test within minutes.

Also i'm only running one 120 fan in the pull alignment to exhaust out of the case I do plan to add a second push tomorrow.

Count me down as a very excited and pleased member of the H50 club.

Glad you like it man, mostly everybody who buys one falls in love with the cooler bro

Push and Pull configuration should give you a nice decrease in temps. Get us a pic or two of the build dude

Add some shrouds and they will be quieter.

Hi Guys,

I'm looking at getting of these in the coming months, however I'll be using an Antec 1200...what is it like to mount in one of these? I heard rumours that it's a nightmare with the already installed exhaust fans?

Dead simple, just mount the radiator onto one of those fans, and add the Corsair fan afterwards
