Correct, to an extent...wait a second. I think you just hit the nail on the head!

Looking at the pic below, starting from right to left, with the 16x pcie slots (blue) they are labeled slot x16_1, slot x8_1, slot x16_2, and slot x8_2. I just had the Phys-X card in the bottom slot because I knew it wouldn't matter if it was x16 or x8 for that card. But what you just suggested was something I just didn't think about.

I am logging off now to try. I hope this works!

i sold my coolit eco to a friend before i get it am really thinking about getting H50 "push/pull" with 2 thermaltake 120mm silent fans since it will be 100$ in total... do you guyz recommend it over air cooler let say Thermalright VenomousX ?

After having x6 CM R4 fans in my old HAF932 case, I can say they are great fans. Although they do not operate at 90cfm at 19db, they are very quiet for the amount of air they move. They are actually quieter than Antec Tri-Cools on high (78cfm at 28db). The stock TIM is pretty good on the H50. It is Shin Etsu which is some expensive stuff. If you want some other TIM, try to find somw IC7 Diamond. I know Micro Center has it, but $20 a tube. There is a Micro Center in Tustin, which is not too far from LA (depending on where you live). Or some Arctic Cooling MX2/3. I would go for the push/pull pull as an intake. I have it set up like that with a shroud too. Temps are great for now, stays below 60C in prime95 and mid to upper 60's in LinX.

is the corsair h50 the cheapest water cooler?
post #7386 of 28252
Quesiton regarding the mounting of the cooler/motor module. Most of the pictures show it orientated so that the corsair logo can be read the proper way. Can the module be also mounted in all the other positions through 90 degrees. e.g. logo writing bottom to top, upside down and top to bottom? hope this makes sense.

I'm wondering of this was possible so that the tubes would have the least stress as possible. i have an htpc case and the res/fan would be mounted exactly opposite the cpu. If the tubes where only 4 or 5 inches long, the tubes would go straight across with no turns whatsoever at the connections. having options for the orientation would make it possible to find the best tube positioning.

thanks.

Im not 100% on this. I would say its cheap for how well it performs

Yes, the pump can be positioned on the CPU any orientation. I find it best to have it right side up or upside down because looking at the cpu and the copper plate for the h50 to be completely in contact with the cpu having it up right or upside down is best. Hope that makes sense. You want as much contact from the cpu and the h50 as possible. It also looks better having it either of those two ways

The thing if you mount it on the side window it will be near to impossible to ever remove it to open your case. The tubes are the most flexible but they are strong.

Hope this helps some

You sir, earned a rep!

I don't know why I didn't think of this from the get go but it works. I had some freezing issue initially but just uninstalled all the drivers (ATI and nVidia) ran driver cleaner and installed each card with drivers one at a time rebooting after each.

I think the result is MUCH better looking...but now I need to PC the 250GTS shroud and back plate.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: BTW I ended up ordering the Cooler Master R4s. At half the price ($18 shipped) I couldn't see spending nearly twice as much for a couple of degrees. Reps for the people who gave their opinions earlier!

thanks for the info. the problem is this case I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112143

it was being used as the htpc in horizontal position at stock settings. i have an xps1710 laptop as my main computer. the i7 rig i would have liked to build will be delayed for now, hence thinking making the laptop the htpc and using the htpc as an overlocked main pc, probably standing vertically.

the problem is there are no 12cm areas for the fan/rad. I was going to mount it on the plate across from the cpu, the top as it were if keeping the case horizontal. the circular opening where the stock intel hsf sits in the optical drive cage may make it kind of tight for the tubes. I will remove the shallow filter cage from the top and make new holes to screw on the fan/rad to exhaust out the top push/pull. I will probably have to dremel out part of the cage to ease things.

i would have liked to replace the tubes with shorter ones but it does make sense opening the case may make it hard, unless i always unscrew the fan/rad first. also i dont think i want to mess with modding the h50, at least not now.

I say its time for some modding or a new case. LOL

Why not?! Its fun and very easy to do. Check my signature for my res mod tutorial. Not to mention it looks alot better.
