Bent Radiator Fins on H50. Should I be worried about leaking?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I installed H50 yesterday, I confidentially bent like 8 Fins on H50. Now I'm worried if radiator fins bent can leak any water.

Do radiator fins carry any water?

Nope. Just help dissipate heat. What it will do, is prevent good cooling. You don't really want to bend too many of them.

The fins wont leak water. They can block airflow lowering cooling performance. can you take a pic of how bad it is?

it was a pain to install push/pull fans for H50, it took me more than 30 mins to installed em, if u said fins won't leak water, i guess i don't have to take H50 apart.

What is load temps? Idle temps don't tell us anything.

Looks just fine. You should have no issues.

Look normal for a H50 to me. Push/Pull or standard one fan?

Pretty much normal temps and behavior all around. I assume HT is enabled?
