Yep - thats the one!

That Antec fan needs to be revved up to match the push fan's speed. Ideally, both fans should operate at the same speed. (+/- a few rpm)

It would be best if you can get the same type of fan for both push and pull.

My personal fav are the Scythe Ultra Kaze DFS123812L-2000, 2000 rpm 87.63 CFM 32.9 dBa (they are not that loud).

They are 38mm fans and move a heap of air. Pair them up with some shrouds and your laughing.

Others include the Coolermaster R4s, Yate Loon D12SH-12, Zalman ZM-F3, Panaflo FBA12G12U1BX. There is a list on the front page of this thread with the most used fans and their specs.

I'll have to look into it. After opening up the windows and with it being freezing cold at 230 in the morning, it's now idling at 40C, which I suppose is better than before.

But I'd rather not wait until 230 in the morning to get this thing down to a somewhat reasonable temperature.

The corsair fans are better than the antec fans, but not by much if the antec fans are turned up to the highest setting. I used an Antec Tricool and the Corsair stock in push/pull for a long time and the temperatures were quite reasonable. I normally undervolted both fans in fact.

Looking at the H50 for my system... i have the lian li pc-p50 with a gigabyte ga-790fxta-ud5 mobo with a 5970 gpu in there; it's a tad tight.
Has anyone installed this in a pc-p50 case? Will i actually be able to do it?

Love some help here

Cheers!
I cant answer that personally but if you search "pc-p50" in the thread search tool you'll probably find some photos of someone in this thread that did Good luck!

I have the same chip as you and I can tell you right now that your temperatures are too high I would recommend reseating the cooler making sure of a few key points:
- make sure all the clips on the mounting ring line up with the teeth on the H50.
- make sure all the screws go in properly (note that you need to use the right screws from the box) and you cant wiggle the thing about after the install.
- check that the thermal paste is ok, you might need to reapply in which case the best method we have found is 5 small dots places on the CPU.

As a guideline I would expect to see idle temps at a maximum of about +10C from ambient though this will depend a lot on your setup (ie. hot graphics cards). If you are sure you've mounted it right then it could be any number of problems, including bad case air flow - but most likely adding some more powerful fans to the radiator will solve the problem.

Believe me, I've reset and the cooler and reapplied paste about four times already and it was still in the 40Cs; as for other components, it's just an 8800GT and four hard drives but my Athlong X4 620 was running with the same components and was handling temps very nicely.

I'll probably end up ordering a Scythe Ultra Kaze to replace the Antec fan in the back just to see if it can improve anything.

r5gtt, heres the temps im reaching at 1.36v vcore, which is a good bit higher then your 1.2xv vcore

id say you should try to set up the h50 in a different spot maybe ...
