Upgrading an H50 for Performance Gains!! - Page 4

It doesn't seems the OEM H50 Rad has any "self purging' jib-jab". Its a sealed unit, perhaps theres some sort of blow off on the pump assembly itself. However I doubt it, but I'm not sure how it works without it. Unless its factory bled and sealed, which means the couple of people who changed the lines are going to run into some issues down the line...

Can anyone shed some insite into this concern??

So I was up late thinking, I'v been looking at the h50 for a while but don't want hot air blowing in my case cause even though I have 5 fans I like to use as few as possible.

So I was thinking, though It dosn't look real nice, another fix other then switching to exhaust is: If the fan it some with is good enough leave it as a intake then use this or some other method http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=1941 to channel the hot air blown off the radiator out a side or top vent or side/top vent fan.

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.
From what I remember from a review of the Siberian Tiger, the Corsair is a heavily souped up version.

The only design difference's im aware of is a slightly different base.

I believe it was the base-pump design as a whole. It achieves about 16C extra cooling, it's not an insignificant addition.

16'c Is a HUGE difference, i have had a look at the NorthQ's inside's, doesnt look that much different but the temps speak for them selves.

Will be adding a Swiftech Microres Rev.2 in a few days if i can find it at a decent price.

Whats different about the base that makes such a significant difference??

Heres some info and pics of NorthQ's product line of the Siberian Tiger.

Jab-tech carries it for $24.95, it looks to be a decent little Res, reasonably priced.

Performance-Pcs also has it for the same price.

So what do you have in mind, will you be exchanging the Rad??


I only received my H50 today. I still need a VGA, CD-Rom, and HDD to finish my build, all in which I'll be picking up in the next couple days (waiting on some Newegg's Holiday Promos).

Using the reservoir means that you don't need a fillport and t-line, because the reservoir (depending on the type) houses the self purging kit.
