In my case it exhausts over the regulator heat sink. You can spin it all 4 ways, but I don't know about clearing the ram slots when up or down.
I believe it still clears, I mean I don't know the difference in space between the socket and the RAM slots in all boards but my friend is running one and he clears it. He has his from front to back orientation, not up or down. However, he had it up and down at one point and it cleared too! Of course, that was his setup.

the H50 you'll need some fans though. It's not that great in stock form. Get some nice fans for it and you should have decently better temps than the Zalman.

Only need 2 really and if you get the unsleeved Yate Loons of any flavor that $8 more plus shipping from performance-pcs.com. So if you live on the West Coast make your order count. Personally I did 4 fans, 1 stick of TIM and a "red" 24 Pin block.

I got High Speeds, but suggest Mediums for uncontrolled Yates.

is this source reliable ? i mean , they dont have the h50 but .... the h50 cost 60 pounds whereas the spire for example costs only 35 ? i can get an HDD too for a deal like this .

What you think ?
Let me know

Well Supes, I have to say that if you just want a reliable cooler that will keep your CPU frosty and are thinking about running one of those? Don't spend a dime and go with the stocker you got with your 955.

When I was trying to sort out my issues back when my system wouldn't Post, I replaced the H50 with something I knew to work. That was the stock cooler. With my CPU lapped mind you, I was getting nearly the EXACT same series of temps I was getting from the H50 for the most part. It wasn't because of the extra fans I have in my system as 2 were down with the H50 and the bottom fan doesn't even blow over the CPU. It blows cool air in from the floor almost directly up to the P/S/P system. I think there was a 5 degree variance +/-. I was pretty impressed with it considering the only change from absolute stock was the Lapping. I wouldn't consider going back to it because it and my RAM cooler were on a 1st name basis and I think they were trying for Chilluns as close as they were.

I had to remove my RAM cooler to keep the two separated.

So if you're intent on a finned heatsink with tubes, stay with the stock cooler. You can get similar results from that if you are comfortable enough with Lapping. The paper itself cost me $20 US so that's how much it will cost you to get similar temps w/o buying a performance heat sink.

You said it right , but the stockier is not oc friendly as we know . I am really worried about the h50 and the issues it may occur in 2-3 years ? buzzing noise , low water , pump dead , etc etc . I really like the h50 and i was ready to buy it . I stopped at the BUY IT NOW button and said " oh my god am i doing it right ? " , every peace of hardware i ,ve chosen was very well reviewed before purchase and of course the cpu cooler too.
The fact that keeps me worried are the reviews from various sites which DEFER so much !!! the Thermaltake frio for example got 9/10 on bit-tech and on many other sites . I am totally new to cpu coolers and i know that they defer in every case . Oh my god talking to much i stop
post #2778 of 13131
No worries Supes. I understand your issue very well. I just had a bout with my OCD about my sleeve order. I know that Mdpc is good stuff. It gets solid reviews. But I don't want too much, and I know what colors I want. So I was driving myself nuts trying to get it worked out. I almost said screw it, returned the donation that was given to me and went with Clean Cut instead. Mostly for me it was the shipping and overall cost that had me dancing around like a little kid doing the potty dance.

While it's not exactly the same since a bad sleeve job is nothing in comparison to a bad Cooler issue, to me it's everything like that. In any case, I understand. All I can say is you gotta take that first step. Once you make your decision, stick to it and play it by ear. Forget everyone else. Forget the reviews. Forget us here at OCN. The person that has to live with the consequences is you.

What gave me confidence in the H50 was that even after I had issues mounting it(twice) and finally got it installed visually similar to Corsairs YouTube instruction video, was the average temps that I get with 2 high performing cheap fans and a shroud. If you aren't going to mate another fan and a shroud then the H50 performs like the Tunique imho from everything I've read from other members and reviews. But the Corsair comes with a two year system guarantee. I probably won't even be using my H50 in this system 2 years from now. I wanted to see how water performed w/o taking the running dip in the freezing deep end of the pool. If it performs at this level then I'll be joining the Polar Bears as soon as money allows. I'll still keep my H50 for future systems though as long as the unit permits.

Weigh the options, pick your poison(figuratively speaking of course) and don't look back.

I did some work on the system yesterday, then woke up early & finished it up. I had to rearrange one hose so that the 2nd 5850 would fit, & moved some other things so that it all would fit the new configuration. I also swapped in the smallest CPU plate that EK supplied, the one with 2 slots. I forgot to get the temperatures out of the BIOS after 15 minute of idle. I'll try to remember to do that so there will be a comparison of temperatures with the most & least restrictive plates installed.

I got mine to 265, but it BSOD in W7 after using it a while. IIRC, 263 worked out.

Maybe it's the RAM? Perhaps I'll try to find the maximum bus speed by dropping the CPU multiplier & seeing what I can get out of it.

The most I have taken mine up to is 308 perfectly stable, anything over that it starts to lock up... but I have never gone above say 1.35V on the NB though, and I really don't need that much juice anyway
I let the BIOS take care of the voltages. Maybe it's time to try some manual voltage settings? I'd be happy to see 275 on the bus. That would give me the rated 2200 out of the RAM.

Bro if you want the H50 then just get it. No regrets. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the H50.
