I'd love to see some results from this if you can document any of it!
Not sure, is one preferred?

One thing I have noticed is how flimsy the metal pump bracket is.. even with it metal, the little O ring part where the pump locks in can be bent easily. Corsair could have made this stronger IMO
I think I might be right in saying that the pressure mod will have little effect, pressure modding has a larger effect on big, heavy heatsinks which try to tear away from the CPU. The H50 never suffers from this because it's too light. For that reason the mounting bracket didnt have to be very strong. Though I agree, overengineering stuff like this is very nice

Plug the pump into a System fan header, or the PSU_FAN header. Check with speedfan or your BIOS that it's running at full speed (about 1440RPM).

If you plug it into CPU_FAN you will encounter problems because it wont run at full speed (unless you disable SMART fan control in the BIOS).

Check the header and see what it says then get back to us

I'll see what I can do. I'm new here so I guess it would be about time to contribute something worthwhile.

I'll post some pics when I finally do it. To be honest the processor I'm not nervous about lapping, but something about how the H50 is built and how awkwardly short the connections between the sink and radiator are make me feel like it's gonna be a scary ride to keep that thing even on the sandpaper.

I think im going to lap the CPU.. Since I already have the rad installed which as a PAIN! im not going to take it out. Maybe later on if I decide to get 38mm fans ill lap the H50 part.
Ill let you guys know what I find out. Im using 2 Cooler Master fans rated at 69cfm. Push/pull config in the front of my Antec 902.

Yah, i agree Yawa... It would be weird to hold and try to keep the rad still and all. Plus the tubes are the most flexible either Kinda wish they used different tubing in a way too

What are you temps like that?

I'm using the corsair fan and an old 3 speed antec in a push/pull intake on the back of element S.

I'm probably just going to get two Sycthes in the end though.

Great, both of you.

@yawa: Maybe you can suspend the rad in the air while you work somehow? This would keep it out the way and then you wont have a problem sliding the H50 over the sandpaper.

@tlxxxsracer: Ah, take some results of before and after please. Lots of people here are interested in this right now.

Just thought I'd add. We have the same fans and CPU working on our rigs. That is all

Exactly. I just wish I could find a video of some madman (aka guy smarter than me) doing this so I could get a frame of reference.

lawls at the 3 speed antec. Intake our Exhaust? Honest opinion.

Ok so the fan was plugged into a cpu_fan header. I didn't see any labeled sys_fan so I found a pwr_fan and plugged it in there. Temps seem to be a little better, but not much. Currently hovering around 47-48.
