I'm sure you're right. I just find it strange that a company that deals with such precision engineering and has done for so many decades cant get an inch square metal surface flatter than the edge of a banana.

Hey guys. I have my installed and so far so good with it, Stuck using stock fans for now,But i will be getting some better fans so i can be in push pull,

Anyway here is my question

Since my case rear exhaust fan is able to have a 140mm do you think it be overkill to attach the 140 to the outside of my case and have that blowing into the 2 120's

So it would be something like this
140-Case-120-Rad-120.

Think that would be bit much or help even more?

I probably did the worst lapping job ever on my Phenom 9850 a few years ago and I saw 5-6ºc drop. If you get it right, I've seen peeps with 9-10ºc drops. A lot also depends on the CPU, some have a flatter surface than others, you can tell when you start to lap it, the copper starts to show on the highest point first which is usually the edges while the center is still not showing any. Lap the CPU and lap the heatsink and you will see a heck of a temp drop.

Only thing is that once you lap, there goes your warranty.

I see loads of i7 owners coming into this thread asking why temps are so hot. Answer is, i7's run really hot. We have known this for ages.

I wouldnt trust myself lapping, ill just end up raising my temps lol
Would be nice to stay under 60c with the h50, but ill probably try lapping in 3 years when a mobo/cpu upgrade is in order.

It would probably be kill the flow.
The fan from the h50 is really good, putting the 140 behind the 120 would make the 120 work more. Due to the 140 being slower. (assuming the case fan sucks)

Try this instead -->fan/case/rad/fan--> works well. It dropped my temps by a bit instead of having everything inside.

BTW add your system here

well - put system back together.....and added more:




got my second HDD back in and a 120*38mm fan + a 120*25mm shroud onto the H50 rad - and note the H50's tubing - some pretty tight angles.
and the fan is touching the 24ping connector btw.
Hey scottath... sure you couldnt get it just a tad smaller? Wicked work man

How is it running?

Hello,

I have a HAF 932 and currently here's how I installed my H50:



If you ask me why I installed a xigmatek fan with some zip-ties giving air to the CPU block, well some people told me it helped, but I am not really sure if it actually does help the temps on cpu or not ....

Now my question is, do you think I would get better temps if I install it on the top part of the case ( the H50 ) ???

Thanks,

Kevin.

If you put the fans horizontally, depending on what type they are, will burn out a lot faster. Most fans are made to go verticality, like the stock H50 fan.

As for the temps, only you can tell us if you get better temps or not. Just try it out and see what you get.

I just think the Corsair H50 is not performing as well as it should :/ I have my CPU @ 3,9GHz with 1,36v right now and I get iddle temps of 30-34ºC and full of 50ºC :/ I expected it better

Those are great temps. Remember the H50 idles are higher than most other heatsinks, but it is lower on the load temps. (load temps count more )
