Your case is a lot smaller compared to the Antec 1200, but that's the same area I'm considering trying to get it to fit. I know the tubes on the H50 are not very long and are fairly tough, but I'm going to try and figure out some way to attach it to the bay.

Well if you get it to work let me know..it just seems like it would provide better temps than mounting it on the back. Either way I guess it will be a decent upgrade over the DK I have

Hm, I'm going to pick a H50 and a CoolerMaster Storm Sniper case on monday.
How much will it affect the temps if I make the H50 (I'm going to use 2x San Ace 1600RPM fans for push/pull) as exhaust instead of intake? There are;

3x 200mm fans. One for intake on the front,one for exhaust in the top and one for intake on the side panel.

2x 120mm fans. One at the bottom for intake and another at the back for exhaust (this is where my H50 rad will be mounted)

The reason I don't want to turn everything around (back as intake, front for exhaust etc), is because of the lack of dust filters.

Why wouldn't it be? I fit mine in a Powerspec TX-366, I'm sure you can cram it in there. Note that the rad is about 120mm by ~ 160mm by 20mm.

I could not mount it where the tubes were at the top, because that part of the radiator is slightly taller than the opposite side, and pushed against the bottom of my PSU too much -- thus the fan's holes wouldn't align with the radiator. I plan on adding another fan for push/pull though. Very pleased with it so far.
Happy Christmas ^^ Glad you're pleased, added.

Yes, that is perfectly possible with a little imagination. Though I suggest that you use it in the rear socket, leaving it as exhaust. See my explanation of intake vs exhaust a few quotes down.

I'm pretty nub to real real bios overclocking . If anyone has any suggestions to get some more out of her please, feel free to suggest.
Added Congratulations and Happy Christmas, I'm afraid I'm not an overclock guru but you're asking in the right forum. Enjoy your cooler, certainly pleased many of us here!

The tubes are 28cm long but reinforced with a steel composite making them quite tough to bend. After some use however, mine have become more flexible, leading me to believe they were originally much more flexible than I thought. If you can measure from the CPU block to your mounting position I think you could get them to reach 20-23cm. Good luck if you try this, but I would still recommend mounting as exhaust on the rear. (I assume your reason for mounting it here is to keep cold air intake on the radiator, as Corsair suggest).

Ah one of the big questions around here! I'll try to sum up 80 pages of thread for you

Basically - mounting the radiator as INTAKE will reduce CPU temperatures, the amount depends a lot on your case and your other hardware. If you have loud, stock coolers on your graphics card and less-than-fantastic exhaust fans then your system will get hot quickly. You'll be blowing hot air from the CPU all over the motherboard.
Now this isnt such a great problem at idle temperatures, and could be nice in some ways, since your CPU will stay dead cold and your fans will barely move. However, at load, your CPU may be running at 50C (assuming a high overclock, for AMD - even higher for Intel). Now I can tell you from experience that the Corsair is VERY good at moving that heat from your CPU to the radiator, and if you put your hand over the exhaust from it it's very hot. The thought of this blowing all over my motherboard, RAM, Graphics cards makes me cringe, it just seems so counterintuitive.
In terms of what you notice - intake will yield a couple of degrees better temperature, although really depends on the hardware in your system. If you have lots of graphics cards it's going to increase this difference.
The personal feelings of myself and most people in this forum are too ignore Corsairs advice, and configure the fan as EXHAUST. Note that we also see big improvements in temperatures when you use a push/pull setup.


New topic:
Got some nice moneyz from Christmas this year, I'm looking at buying some better fans for my radiator, as well as looking at some aftermarket coolers for my graphics card - the noisiest part of my system. Maybe also considering an SSD

I know this has probably been asked a million times and other threads started, but can any of you give a Mega or TRUE vs this h50? With the TRUE (including 2 38mm fans) i can get for the same price as the h50. I know the Mega is the best but probably 20$ more than both. But how does the h50 compare to these two?
Have any of you gone from a high end air cooler to this?
Im again stuck between the h50 and the TRUE. Im using it with an AMD x3 (going to overclock and I have the 4th core unlocked.)
