(Guide) H50 Replace Tubes and Res Mod. - Page 4

post #31 of 418
Can u do a prime95 small fft test? Loaded 100% on all cores.. And please post your ambient temps...

I would believe it's in the 30s if your ambient is like 8c... But a room temp of 22c or so....

In case, anybody who dont sure what ID and OD meaning. ID stand for Inner Diameter and OD stand for Outer Diameter.

My highly recommending: the PVC tube 1/4″ Inner Diameter (6.35 mm), 3/8″ Outer Diameter (9.525 mm) for H50 if you desire to modifiy tubes.

You can find PVC tube from LOWE and HOME DEPOT.

my 920 @ 4200mhz with 1.33vcore loads at ~74c under 100% prime95 small fft's with a 24c ambient.
post #34 of 418
Sorry, may be a silly question. But where do you put the O-rings?
Also if it calls 6mm ID and 8mm OD, how can you use 8mm ID if youre supposed to use 6mm? Wouldnt there be some gap then? Also, how do you make sure all the original liquid gets out? wouldnt a mixture affect something?
Did you use distilled water? Or what? Any additive other than the dye? I remember reading that something will corrode the metal or something..

I think you didnt read another thread..

1) why you need o-ring?

2) Another thread of (Guide) Fitting Clear tubes to a H50 : Willhemmens had spoken that he highly recommend that 6mm ID and 8mm OD.

3) You can buy distilled water from target or other store. You can mix DW (aka distilled water) with a/f coolant or other. Dont mix with any color dye, period.

4) I suggest you to learn about wc stuffs, etc before leap into Mod Loop.
good start with those for you; OP and posters already answered your questions:

I read through all of that stuff before, But in this tutorial Will said "Remember to use O Rings!" On the very first post.
Right He suggested the smaller ID, but why did he still use the 8mm ID tubing then? It one will cause less head pressure with bigger tubing. Then would you just use the zipties to take up the extra gap?

I got this size because it was the only one availible. I would be best to use 6mm ID and 8MM OD sized tubing.
from (Guide) Fitting Clear tubes to a H50.. Thank you very much..

Okay, first you dont have to reply in such a was at you did.
The thing Im confused about is this. If the larger ID is better by not creating as much head pressure for the pump, then why not use that instead? Willhemmens is obviously having no problems using the 8mm ID, and if anything its helping him because it allows more water to flow easier than a smaller diameter tube.

I'm really glad you did this and it worked out. I just got pissed off at mine and i have to have the case tilted so the bubbles don't come rushing in at a steady stream.

All in all that thing looks super sharp. It stands out like a mofo in that case. It made me happy to see this thread.

O rings are there to seal the barbs on to the res, that is all.

The only tubing availible to me was 8mm ID tubing. So this is what i had to use. There is a gap but if you do the cable ties tight enough its ok.

Bassically when you mix aluminum and copper in the same loop, they corrode each other. So i used all of the stock fluid plus distilled water and some dye.
I will be swapping it out for proper fluid soon.

Thanks, sounds like yours has a lot of air in it, you could send it back to corsair, im sure they would take it back.

I would believe it's in the 30s if your ambient is like 8c... But a room temp of 22c or so....
It will be done with full ss's.
