the more you talk about those 1850's the more i want them lol. i'd probly run epu anyways so the fans would run around 800 rpm or so but i guess if it heated up alot it has more headroom to raise its rpm. the only problem is im running a computer with corrupt ram so it isnt running correctly ya kno? maybe if i wait a week they might 1850's might come in who knows or i could always email egg..

is one shroud enough? or should i have one after the rad? i dont know if that will fit though it. IMO that would also make the cooler less efficient because it would be blowing more air into the top bay which is closed off
If you don't have the room for the extra shroud no big deal. I moved my fans and made some custom fabricated brackets to hold my fans, shrouds and radiator in my front drive bays so I have room. I had mine originally at the back of my case because of the space between H50 radiator, fan and the pump I couldn't put even one shroud on without cutting holes in my case to move the radiator outside the case and would've had to take the tubes off from the radiator too which I don't want to do. Just put the shroud with the "push" fan and it will do the most good.

I wanted the same as you to not increase the noise of my computer at all by adding fans for the H50 because I use my computer for most everything from gaming to everyday TV watching. If I have everything off and no one else around but me making noise like I said I can hear the GT 1850's but not really the motor noise of the fan just air movement. For me at least even when I am right on top of them with case open so I can hear them they do not make an annoying sound at all they are a lot different than other fans noise.

If you need help with anything else feel free to ask. Don't forget you will also need longer screws to go through the fan/shroud.

I would imagine that depends on if the ultra 120 was lapped and pressure modded. In push/pull with decent fans it seems to be similar to the megatron.

Had to pull mine off. Every time I would load it the thing would gurgle as the temps went up so I'm going to do some testing before it goes back in. Maybe change the orientation of the pump. Besides, I want new fans for it anyways. It's warm in here almost all the time, a fairly constant 80F, and with the H50 the cpu at 3.6/1.38v was loading at 51C. Put the stock HSF back on, loads at 55C. I think I could vastly improve on that with another shroud and better fans.

The new 2002 BIOS for my mobo is a godsend. The Q-Fan now supports idle fan speeds up to 48C and full at 51C, so I can run CnQ off and not kick up the fan. It just purrs at 2700 all day, even when I'm running around as Commander Shepard.

Not digging 5000 rpm under full load though I will be happy to get the h50 back in.

Hey fellow H50 modders and owners. I have had the pleasure of reading your experiences this past week it helped me to know that the H50 is the way to go for a starter water cooler.

Here is the breakdown of my results after I setup my H50.
With H50 in push pull fan/sh/rad/sh/fan/exit funnel
(note had a 1 degree drop when added funnel for exit.)

Overclocked to 3.20 ghz 30 idle 39 max load
ram oc 1600 to 2244mhz with old i7 cpu airfan cooling via ruberband hold on
note: I do not have my sheet with ram oc number on me at work oc might be a little higher on it.

fyi:
Stock fan Pre H50: 29-30 idle 35-39 load 40-45heavy load

Its important to note that as of 335 post on this thread I have not seen anyone use an exit shroud from trailing fan on push pull setup.
I cut the top off an old cdr spindle and used alumium tape to match it up on the cosair trailing fan it is almost a perfect match for 120mm the tape seals it up nicely. This goes to the grill I have cut out in to cover my 3, 5 1/2 bays I have my push pull setp in. It looks pro. I will post pics soon I believe the community would enjoy seeing another good mod for H50.

I have a Ultra fan controller, Ram fan cooler and cold cathodes on the way from amazon should be here next week.

Since I'm in process for re-doing my fan setup... hmm that seems like a very good idea. Make a duct out of it.

LOL @ 3" of stuff hanging out the back of the case!

Yeah after reading all the posts I found this thread to be an excellent source of info for the would be H50 owner. It was the only thing I could think of that I needed as I had too much open space and blowback into the case without it. And everyone has as cdr spindel cover so its a great addition for all setting up on exit.

Yeah I was thinking of doing a funnel type thing with mine when I get my Kaze's. Not something like full ducting, but mainly a directional thing keeping the air going towards the top 200mm exhaust fan in my Antec 900. I figure that way I can still have my motherboard components (north and south bridges) keep cool with my side intake fan, and possibly an Antec spot cool.

I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times but what are some good fans for push/pull for the H50?

I'm also interested if you push/pull guys also replaced the stock fan along with it...thanks!
