Are you special? Where do you think the heat from the cpu goes? are you unaware how a heat sink works?
Heat is transferred to the AIR which is being pushed by the fans INTO your case. Thus raising the ambient inside your case which heats everything up

EDIT: I have an h50,you should feel heat being blown out under load. Exhaust set up is best,Intake will see a 1-2 degree cpu heat reduction for a +4-5 degree rise on your internal case temp. Worth it?

I believe your special dude. Read the instructions on those things, they dont say set up as intake for no reason. Obviously you adjust other fans if you make your rear 120 or 140mm intake, so airflow properly cools case, but cpu is a little more important.

PS. its not a heatsink, its a radiator dispersing the heat and that radiator is attached to the back of the case, in most cases. Totally different concept then a heatsink fan set up. But do it how you want dude.

So i want hot air being blown over my mosfets do i? Until you own one and done some airflow test like i have,your opinion is worthless...thanks for playing!

the method of heat transfer is the same for both,its the air which carries the heat away

If your dumb enough to believe only your opinion matters then so be it. The majority find in favor of the defendant, me, cuz thats what works best. Your case may be diffrent depending on your situation like I mentioned before with video cards and such. If your video card exhausts out the back of the case probably no issue.

Edit: noticing that you have a Vapor X, you probably benefit more from exhaust then intake, cuz it spreads hot air in case. Either way its what works best for your setup. Agreed?

click on the link in my sig to get info on the h50 by people who use them,not your half baked opinions.

Ps. Seems your dumb enough to put a 125w proc in a 4+1 board,good for you!

Dont have to. Read more about H50 or H70 then you will ever experience in years of use. Most right hear on this site. But like I said, if it works for you and thats the way you like it then do it.

and what does that mean? Who the hell are you? Dont get panties in a bunch over a logical conversation.

Now this isnt such a great problem at idle temperatures, and could be nice in some ways, since your CPU will stay dead cold and your fans will barely move. However, at load, your CPU may be running at 50C (assuming a high overclock, for AMD - even higher for Intel). Now I can tell you from experience that the Corsair is VERY good at moving that heat from your CPU to the radiator, and if you put your hand over the exhaust from it it's very hot. The thought of this blowing all over my motherboard, RAM, Graphics cards makes me cringe, it just seems so counterintuitive.
In terms of what you notice - intake will yield a couple of degrees better temperature, although really depends on the hardware in your system. If you have lots of graphics cards it's going to increase this difference.
The personal feelings of myself and most people in this forum are to ignore Corsairs advice, and configure the fan as EXHAUST. Note that we also see big improvements in temperatures when you use a push/pull setup.


This is the opening quote from the h50 owners club,so,now sit back and read....

Heard great things about them. Im on a ref card that exhaust all hot air out the back of case though. I would probably prefer intake cuz my case isnt heating up to crazy tempos when my video card heats up. Of course it is some but, i guess thats a choice you have to make. Couple of degrees drop on cpu for a little higher board temps? Just depends. Like you said, and me earlier, just depends on hardware and what works best.

it does seem like a good stock/aftermarket solution,shame it couldnt be incorporated into the reference design...i like the box look!
now,if you had an h50,all the hot air your card expels would go up the back of your case then be sucked in again by the h50 at the top..
