I am amazed at what replacing the the TIM on the NB bridge did for my temps! I have jusr been lazy but I am glad I did this. I also added that fan to the NB that our mobos came with, I am not sure how much that helped.
Now to my question. I am a reletivly new to all of this so be patient. I bought an H50 on a whim because it was $47 and I wanted to see if it could help out my temps in the South Texas heat. 100F to 107F should be the norm for the next couple of months. Brettjv was awesome as usual and helped out via PM. I could not do all of what he asked because I did not have all the parts I needed. ANYWAY, I have the push/pull setup with the fans bringing in cold air.
I plugged the pump cable into an adapter and it is now plugged into the PSU. I have an excalibur CM fan on the left side of the radiator or the first fan and the other fan is the one the h50 came with. The excalibur fan is a 4 pin which is connected to the CPU header and the stock corsair fan is also plugged into the psu because I could not figure where else to fit a 4 pin connection.
I know this is not an ideal set up but I needed to get the computer put back together as my wife was mad about the office looking like a robot exploded in it and becuase I thought I would have it finsihed by the time she got back into town.
Is this going to work for awhile until I get two identical fans? Is plugging the pump into the PSU ok? I am really pleased with the temps, a good 5-7C drop in ITB, OCCT and Prime and my NB temps dropped more than that. My only problem is I am worried that I plugged these things into the wrong places and that my computer now sounds like a jet engine 24/7.
Please advise after reading my war and peace post
