People aren't doubting it. It's just that the H50 isn't all that amazing of a performer to begin with, and you wouldn't see much benefit upgrading it. For the amount you need to spend to make the upgrade worthwhile, you could put together a cheap used loop that could perform better.

Still no specs on the H50's pump, but you guy on think just adding (given the pump can support it) a 120x2 Res/Rad combo ($60) w/38mm fans properly placed would drastically increase the H50's performance??

That's sort of the conclusion I settled on eventually. Though, as a person who likes to tinker with things, it's not that bad of a project for a boring weekend.

If you want a customized rig idea, try one of the builtin swiftech kits. They use what is essentially (i believe) a 10w ddc mounted to one of their apogee waterblocks, with a nice radiator on the end. That could be modded pretty well.

Yeah. It's a fun project, but it might be expensive, and the performance gain might not be that much.

Exactly. I would guess only a couple of C's lower than stock. The problem is flow. Just too many variables to account for that are unknown for me to want to proceed.

Well, to start with, the H50 is powered by a Asetek LCLC (low cost luiqid cooler), its used in several different products.

The Corsair H50, the NorthQ Siberian Tiger 3570 and 3590 and in high end HP prebuilt PC's (HP Blackbird 002) and other OEM uses.

If you look up the NorthQ Siberian Tiger 3590, you will find it uses the Same Asetek LCLC as the H50 and has a 2X120 Radiator. Its said to cool a i7 at 4.0GHz 3-5'c better than the 1X120 version, proving the pump will do the job.

Also take a look at the Asetek site for an idea of other things the do with the LCLC.

Theirs a club here with over 60 members/owners that would disagree with that statement.

Thats your opinion, based on...Nothing but theory from someone who doesn't even own one...

I completely disagree, and the fact that I only spent $54 on the unit to begin with, I have a little more leeway before I even get close to your cheapest simple loop set-up.

Thats the last time I'll spend on counter productively, for now on, with this project, the rest of time will be spent constructively...

Unfortunately I have a lot of work to get my currently rig (which will house the H50) together (I haven't even received my H50 yet)
So it don't appear (unless I'm the only one interested in pursuing this) I'll be the front runner here...But perhaps I can spark the flame to someone that will...

Hey, I'm with you every step of the way. I support projects such as these. Like I said, the H50 is a fine performer, why not make it a little better right?

In the Asetek LCLC we use a low pressure drop system and the benefit is that the system is ultra flexible. For instance with only one pump the LCLC is capable of cooling 2x 130W CPU’s and 2x 240W graphics adaptors – or in other words providing flow for 4 cold plates and removing 750W!
