post #8331 of 28251
Hey guys!

Currently running a Corsair H50 in a "Push/Pull" setup as exhaust (For some reason works better than intake, i think because it is taking the heat from the HD5970 into the rad, so exhaust works better) with x2 Xigmatek XLF-F1253 and I had a few questions.

Right now I am running my CPU @ 4Ghz with 1.5v, and the iddle temps while on msn and steam are usually around 35-37ºC and full with Linx or Bad Company 2 after while get almost to 52ºC.

Now my question is, do you think it is worth to put the H50 in the Drive bays?

Here's how it's actually installed (With some Revoltec 1200rpm fans on that picture):



If I were to install it on the Drive bays, how could I do that?

And my last question is, any specific fans you would recommend me to install on the H50 that are available either on www.caseking.de or www.hardwareversand.de ?

Thanks,
Kevin.

I "should" 1200 has all stock fans, minus the large top fan, replaced with Yate Loon high speed 120mm fans using the same configs as the stock fans. All plugged into the PS. The rad/fan is all mounted on the top CPU exhaust fan on the 1200, with my sli 470's all the way at the other end of the case. I have the Noctua's plugged right into the power supply molex connectors so I'm pretty sure they're running full speed.

CPU voltages are at 1.275 on vcore and 1.325 vtt both were as low as I could go to remain stable at 4ghz.

@Garnet

Hmm my initial reaction would be that the H50 is still drawing heat from those SLI 470s, but then you have 2 (?) exhaust fans behind the motherboard anyway... You might want to try an intake method but I have a feeling the problem may be more fundamental.

When you screw it down, it is important that you use the correct screws (there are 8, 4 small and 4 big - though hard to tell by looking). I dont know which you should use for your mounting system but they shouldnt "wobble" as you tighten them up. It took me a few attempts to mount it correctly.

I would also run a search through this thread for normal temperatures for your chip

There is a great list of fans on the front page maintained by Sethy, I suggest you check that out! There are a few guides around for drive bay mounting if you search this thread - though really I dont think it will make a big difference. You might consider adding fan shrouds instead to drop your temperatures.

@Killhouse, and also thanks for the help.



That's how I have it setup now, are the 8 screws you mentioned the ones I have mounting the rad and fans? I'm sort of wondering how tight the screws on the CPU should be for the main unit ... I'm always very hesitant to tighten them too much.

From what I've seen both in this thread and others, I'm about 5-8c over what the "normal" temps are for my CPU, even at my overclock, and most of the air coolers I've seen are getting better numbers.

I guess I can bump the fan speed up on the video cards and try and eject more heat out the back of the system and see if that will lower ambient temps.

Just hoping that it's something I'm doing wrong and not a faulty unit or something. Really not up for doing the RMA dance.

Ouch, I think the problem is the way you have the radiator mounted - looks like far too much bend on the radiator pipes there. Try re-orientating it to get that chink out!

Will do, I suppose I've reseated this thing enough by now it should go quickly. I suppose I can just rotate the base a little so the cables arc back and up instead of down and to the side. I guess it really doesn't matter the orientation on the pump ... i mean it's not like I really care if the Corsair logo is upside down lol. I guess we'll see after I get home tonight, thanks for the tips; hopefully it helps.

Yeah, just make sure you get rid of that fold in the pipe. It's probably restricted water flow a lot and bad for the health of the unit.

Hi Guys,

This link should also help answer some of the ongoing questions such as;

http://www.vortez.co.uk/contenttelle..._review,9.html

1. Should I go with exhaust or intake?
2. Should I keep stock Tim or replace with something else?
3. What push/pull fans should I use?
4. Is the Corsair H-50 truely better then air?
