I concur. The site says max of 1.4v but I believe up to 1.5v won't even void your warrant. Anything over that I believe warranty is out the windows.

Currently have Corsair H50 in my rig. Picked it up after the Coolermaster water cooling kit I had been using bit the dust.

H50 instructions explain to install in Intake position. The result was temps going through the roof. I have no top vent, but I do have a place for a fan to mount on the side of my case cover. So I scavenged the Fan off the CoolerMaster watercooling kit that had died. After several experiments, I optimized my case airflow.

This is what worked for me....

Side Fan: Intake (blows directly onto my SLI setup)
H50: Exhaust
Powersupply: Exhaust

Not a single component in my rig experiences any heat issues, even under 100% load. This is what worked for me, mate. Good luck.

They ship worldwide, but you would have to check shipping payments to see if it is worthwhile. Hope this helps


Alright nice one man, now we're getting somewhere

Just one thing to make sure though, the ones markes in the pic below, are those the right ones?

Yes, that's the ones. One thing though, make sure you have some allen keys!

The american size threads (unc,unf) are hard to find here in the UK (and also scandinavia i presume).

4)Put the rad fans as intake (assuming you can rearrange your case airflow/ have upward eshaust fans.
5)Apply TIM CORRECTLY/wait for its curing time (if apply).
6)lap your proc/pump.
7)mod the H50.

Good Advice, i have AS5 coming in the mail set to get here friday, Can you elaborate on how to perform steps 5-7 being as meticulous as possible?

Totally disagree, While you're not changing the surface area you are increasing the efficiency of it by pushing more air through with a dual fan set-up. Proof? look at any fan comparison cooling graph on google when pushing air through a rad. I went from 2 X Sythe SFF21F at 1600 rpm to 2 X Ultra Kaze at 2000 rpm and the difference was at least a 2 degree drop at idle and about 3 degree drop at load. (noise didn't increase much either).
