SO I am soon to be the proud owner of a H50 Cooler! and have been browsing these forums looking for the best setup intake/exhaust, push/pull. Now I have come to the conclusion thanks to some of Dkev's posts that Exhaust is the way to go! I'm thinking matched with my new HAF932 air flow isnt goin to be an issue and hopefully be seeing some low temps on my i7 920 which I intend to reach a modest 3.7-3.8.
I'm hoping to achieve the <=fan<=shroud<=rad<=shroud<=fan setup

Now am I right in thinking i can mearly mod a couple of 120mm fans into 2x shrouds ? and If so 1xfan, 1xshroud on the back (outside) of the case ? I'm hoping for some good results along with my 2x Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM Ultra Quiet 120mm Fan's, 63.7 CFM. Is it about 1-2 degrees off with the added shroud etc ?

My first post here chaps, will be updating my RiG details come monday after the build is finished.

I appreciate your time!

Cheers
On "My" 932haf with my setup, Exhaust push pull works great.
I may be able to shave a bit more off as intake, but I was feeling a LOT of heat out the top fan when I had it as intake with the single fan.. I like the results I have now better.

I am sitting at 4.047 right now.. I may start looking for 4.2 soon, but to be honest with a board and a GPU issue right out the gate.. I am just happy killing bad guys and enjoying the rig a bit at the moment

Varies from 6-10c. Went through multiple configs as well, before settling on INTAKE configuration.

So is it best to have the fans blowing out of the case? I just picked up a h50 and feel lost.

Do some searching for Ping's posts in this thread, as I believe he did quite a few diagrams.

The BEST configuration really boils down to your system as a whole, and the airflow going on, not to mention AMBIENT temps have a drastic impact as well.

As in my configuration (which I'll be posting updated pics later tonight most likely), even though everything in theory suggests I should be running an EXHAUST configuration for the best temps, I get better temps with INTAKE due to the heat my setup produces, and how my fans are configured to exhaust that heat, and since my OUTSIDE temps are less, I get better temps.

Of course, come summer, I'll most likely be switching it around again. I'm NOT paying the AC bill that I had to last summer

well got her installed and fired up. gotta say that i am very disappointed withe the results so far. installed in the Armour fan, rad, fan going exhaust and the temps are very disappointing. right off the top went straight to 71c. my copper true never passed 63c full load with 20 passes of LinX. i'll tinker with it some more but looks like i will be sending her back to microcenter.

I'm going to get a shroud and put it in this kind of set up fan-->shroud-->rad-->fan.
It will be exhausting out the back of the case. Is this the right way to do it?

Did you set it up as an intake or exhaust?

Hello everyone,

I just ordered the H50 and was wondering if it comes with thermal paste already applied, and if so is it any good? Should I invest in some Arctic Silver and use that instead?

Thanks in advance for the feedback.
