post #711 of 28311
Hey guys I got a H50 from Fry's so add me to the club

Just had a quick question. I heard that the pump could be throttled by the Bios and reduce cooling performance. Currently, I have all fans set to 100% except for my CPU fan which is set to "SmartFan". Should this be set to 100% as well? I'm asking because my temps start out very low like around 28C but after an hour of leaving the computer on, this temp rises to 40C. Thanks for the help.
Woohoo

Your pump should be a 3-pin and stick that on a 3-pin fan header. The Radiator fan should be a PWM 4-pin and should go on your 4-pin CPU if your MB has one.

You CAN put the Pump on the CPU Header if you have a 3-pin header from your MB. I do not recall if it is possible to put a 4-pin fan on a 3-pin header, but I believe it is possible to do.

You just have to remember what header you put your pump on and set that to 100%. I have my Radiator Fan set to 100% also and it's still whisper quiet.

SUMMARY: Throttle the Radiator Fan (if necessary), NOT the Pump!

It's a closed loop system. There is no reservoir. It won't loose coolant.

Add me!

I have mine in a Push/Pull setup as both Intake at the rear of my case with my top fan in my Antec 300 as the exhaust.

I'm using the rear stock Antec 300 fan set to High as well as the stock Corsair fan that comes with the H50.

Currently I'm getting between 30-34C on all Cores idle, and max load temperature is between 62-66C.

Welcome to ocn
This is my new setup. However these pictures are 'Before' pictures which I've taken to show the change once I've done the cable management mods I plan. So that's why it's messy, I'm not finished! Also sorry for the bad photography, but you get the idea. Here my H50 is just sort of in normally compared with my old Mini-ITX case, not nearly as interesting!

I've since changed it to an exhaust rather than intake fan... why corsair recommended it as an intake I don't know, I'm personally getting better temperatures as an exhaust - any thoughts?

Im on the fence about picking up a H50 at microcenter today. Someone help me pull the trigger. I want to break 3.0 ghz stable on my new 9850 but am maxxing out in temps (63*C in Prime 95) at 2.9 ghz. Can cooler temps really help me get that last 100 mhz?
