YEP, another H50 mod ( prototype ) .. watcha say?! - Page 4

post #31 of 54
I stuck an H50 in my rig not 5 minutes ago. I'm getting temps higher than what I see on my Venomous-X.

Well, this is a disappointment. Might as well try these mods out.

I think the easiest mod for a solid performance gain would be to add another 120 radiator, or replace the stock 120 with a dual 120. I wasted my time and money with a GT AP-15 fan, tried different fan configurations, tried using a shroud, and on and on... In my experience, there's very little to be gained by all this fan configuration stuff - no more than 2 degrees C anyway.

It seems adding the extra radiator drops temps 5 to 10 degrees C - not that I've done it myself (sadly I don't have room in my Antec 300). At this point, the h50 ought to smoke even the Ven X. Seeing as how you can get a dual radiator for under $50, it's not terribly expensive of an upgrade either.

I would love to mod the top of my case to fit a dual radiator, but I'm OCD and it has to look professional and still be internal. Eventually I might utilize the CNC router on campus!

yes.. there are a few air coolers beeing as good as or even better as the h50 :/ ... u will get about 6-15°C per core, depends on the parts u are using if u plan a mod.. might be better buyin a complete wc in parts..

only fools pay full price for brand new things when you can get just as good slightly used things for a lot less
nice.. you gotta make some pics when you are done

i guess the best thing is a big radiator.. 240 or 360 and a medium sized tank..

its nice but by the time you buy the h50 get the res the other rad, tubing, fittings couldnt you have just built the loop with anyway

I mean 150-180 will do a nice loop on a budget
59.00 xspc 750 pump/res
50.00 swiftech 320qp
58.00 heatkiller v3 lt
add some tubing and 6 fittings

but I understand if you already have the stuff then yea why not

Modding the h50 on a budget should look like:

1. h50 - $80
2. No reservoir - $0
3. 1/4" ID tubing - $3
4. 220 rad - $50
5. 2 Fittings - $6

Total = $140 and that's buying brand new at MSRP + some fudge on the rad for shipping. You could save $20 by just doing an additional 120 rad.


Now I know Sean W. just built a custom loop for $160, but even then he had to buy stuff used. If I were going to jump head first into a custom loop it would look something like:

1. Radiator: Swiftech MCR220 - $50
2. Pump: Swiftech MCP355 - $65
3. Block: Koolance CPU 360 - $90
4. Fittings: Barb Fittings - $15
5. Tubing: $5

Total = $225... granted, that's an expensive block - but it's also dead sexy so I had to have it

Anyway, point is you can still mod the h50 and spend considerably less than a custom loop. That and some of us can't get beyond the fact that the h50 block and pump are all one piece! Does that also justify the nice CPU block?

i had the h50 first and was not happy with the temps, i already spent 70$ for it so i thought i alrdy gotta pump and heatsink.. now my load temps in linx are 68°C and 48°C idle on my q9300 with 3.5ghz and 1.28 vcore @load. the vanilla h50 temps were above 75°C.. with a scythe mugen2 which i had before i had almost 80°C..

i´ll leave my settings as they are now, but i will definitely buy new wc parts when / or if i get to oc a new cpu .. q9300 is a nice cpu.. for oc also but it sucks if u wanna hit 4ghz :/

i would buy a rly big radiator that is almost as big as my tower so i got vry good temps and zero noise.. i got some experience now and for my flavour the 240er radiators are not enough..


thank you for so many views and replies guys ;P ..like i said ill add more pics when i re-arranged the whole tower and added this god damn nb cooler ^^
