YEP, another H50 mod ( prototype ) .. watcha say?! - Page 5

post #41 of 54
Not sure if your first post reflects your latest work, so how much have your temps dropped vs stock? Actually, what are your load temps now? Are you still running the 220 and the original 120 rad?

Argh, I've been wanting to mod my h50 for the longest time. Every time I see one of these posts I get that much closer to doing it too. One thing I never know for sure though is if it can handle a 240 rad over the long run. To me just adding a res isnt really going to lower my temps. Every thread I see there's a ton of debates on how much the pump can handle and how dumb people are for not going with a "real" loop etc etc... Does anyone know of somebody who's modded their h50 and has come back after 6+ months and said everything is still fine?

I've only managed to find one report of someone burning out their pump and they were doing much more than just a 220 rad... A few weeks later, they realized their pump just had a big air bubble in the impeller - it was still just fine!

I want to know if somebody can actually find a post of someone saying for SURE that they have managed to burn out their pump. I think it's all a myth - the naysayer "real" watercooling guys are just up to a bunch of fear mongering...

Lol. I also like the big res the op has. I really can't think of a way a bigger res with more water would be any different than a small res with less water. Still the exact same load on the pump. Also the big res allows the water to sit longer allowing it to cool a little more. Now that I think of it I might just go with a big res like that.

If anyone else knows of anyone who has had success for 6+ months let me know.

hey,
my load temps are with ibt 70°C with max memory usage. idle temps are 50°C.. its summer here and today is a hot day.. some days ago it was a little colder and the load temos were 67° per core / idle 47°C

i´m still unsing both rads.. i set the pump to 1100 rpm to be not noticable at all. the most noise now comes out of the psu .. now lets see how long this will work.. i built it almost one month ago, with no problems until now. i will post in future if something happened and how it is working.

the last uploaded pictures were at night.. i made some at daylight but my camera is bat, sorry for that.. and i was too lasy to open it, pardon this too..

Any more suggestions?
Can anyone of you recommend a good pump (something like mcp655?) and cpu-block?!

i want to use it for my second rig.. there will be an e6600 @ 3.5ghz, a 9600gt, 4gb ram and so on. if i had only a cpu with a higher multi i would set 4ghz on my main rig, its frustrating i did not know that when i was buying it :/

Update

I´ve replaced my tim and re-positioned my h50. now i get idle temps of 45-48°C and after one hour prime small fft i got max 66°C( after i polished heatsink and cpu ) 61°C on core 1 and 57-58°C on the other cores. on LINX at full mem usage core1 is 68°C and the others too..
I think this the maximum for my setup. i decidet that i will buy a new cpu block and a pump to complete my project. i think my cpu block will be heatkiller3.. im not sure about the pump, i still got to compare..

cheers







edit: you may rep+ me if my work did help you
