I agree.

Going beyond that is just too much work and defeats the simplicity of the well designed H50.

H50 works well.

Might as well go custom loop rather than doing to many mods to the H50.

So Dutch, how are things going with the modding? Have you started anything yet or planned anything new?

No sorry, I just received my H50 yesterday, and I have a few other components needed (VGA,HDD,CD-ROM) to finish my build. Then I need to OC my CPU to get before and after test results.
Currently I'm working on modding my case for wire management.

It'll be a little while before I do anything with the H50, Sorry to disappoint you, this thread was created to share and compare ideas on utilizing the performance of the H50, it wasn't intended to be a work-log...

BTW, your avatar looks like Sponge Bob with Elephantiasis!!

Ah, no need to apologize, I'll admit, I didn't read everything in this thread...

My avatar is actually a marine angler fish I used to keep.

Just a heads up, I read the Switftech MicroRes Rev.2 is kinda cheap and has leak problems at the threads. Maybe some Teflon tape/Thread seal tape would help, or perhaps your familiar with the product.
I'm thinking of splurging a bit by getting the XSPC Passive 150mm Reservoir its sweet, I have the perfect spot for it, where I can have a fan blowing directly in it. Cooling the fluid in the res is brilliant!! Also its another component I can use, IF I choose to do a more advanced WC set-up. But its looking like if this mod is done correctly, there shouldn't be any need to upgrade. This should end up being as effective as a low-mid end WC set-up.

I'd love to know the "GPH" of the pump to know what I'm working with, and if it needs some modifications...

I have several different configurations/placements for my Rad and Res.
Correct me if I'm wrong, the closer the Rad and Res is to the pump, the less pressure is needed to perform efficiently, but how much of a difference is the question...I.E. would it take A LOT more pressure if the Rad and Res is placed on the bottom of the chassis. I have a nice place for the rad on the substructure right across from the PSU, then I can pull or push fresh air from the bottom of the case. My other configuration is to mount the Rad on the top of the case (just above the cpu) and the Res beside the cpu (less pressure needed=better efficiency=cooler temps ).
However, It would be nice to utilize the bottom the of the case its open and bare, but like I stated it may be a bit too much strain (lack of pressure) on the pump and the cooling performance may suffer a bit...
I'm not sure, I'm just an electrician not an electrical engineer...but I'll get it all worked out!!

Thanks for that option, will have a look around on some US site's. I havent used a Res at all before, i havent looked at many reviews of the Swiftech but it looked good and i only need a small ish Res. Im also looking at drive bay Res'. Im not 100% on what to go for yet but i will be buying after Xmas anyway. That Res looks good and its a good idea.

When i first got this H50 i was very suprised by the performance, taking 6'c off my previous air cooler, but i want to improve on that still. It seems to handle the heat from my 1GHz+ overclocked quad core very well, never going much over 45'c under load, even with my fan right down.

As for radiator placement, I think the pump would be able to handle a single 120mm rad any where in the case without any pressure drop. I do like the idea of having the Rad amove the pump to the pump never runs dry and so there are less presure problems. Luckily the only place i can mount a 240 Rad is on the top of my case so there isnt any problems there. I dont plan on keeping the H50 for ever, i plan on getting a Res then Rad then pump and Waterblock(s).

I was gonna run longer tubing drill holes into the side of a mini freezer and put fan and rad in their. or leave em out side the case and stick em in some sort of cooling solution. since liquid is not compressable if you you get moust the air out the pump can handle pretty much any length of tubing. you just want to keep the ID of the tube the same.

Awesome we have been waiting for an answer for 4 years.
