Corsair H50

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am new to watercooling and so i just kindof cheated and bought one premade for just a processor but is it better for me to get rid of this when i upgrade to my quad core and get the whole build cooled? or is there easy ways to kind of keep ram and gpu fairly cool with just case air flow? i currently have an A+ El Diablo case thanks for any and all suggestions.

There's little benefit to watercooling more than the CPU and video card(s). Your RAM and motherboard (NB/SB/VRMs) should stay cool enough with your case airflow.

you can keep good temps using air cooled plus the H50 I have the H70 and the rest of my case is air cooled and i maintain temps of 36 degrees or so idle and i keep my comp on 24/7 i have 2 140mm intake fans and 1 120mm fans, 2 140mm exhaust, the 2 h70 fans exhuasting, a fan/cone custom setup on my N/B and my cpu is oc'd to 4.117

I have both the H50 and H70. Recommend the H70 if you can afford it and it fits. MUCH better temps. But the H50 is as good as a high end air cooler, and does a fine job on my I7-975.

The h50 should be enough for most overclocks.I say stick with it.The rest of it can be easily cooled with air.

yeah i was thinking if need be just double up the radiator fan like the h70 since that's really the only upgrade i see that's made to it lol. i was thinking what the average temp of a 6850 2 gig card would be since that's what i'm upgrading to btw.

What quad core are you getting? If it is a Sandy Bridge then I would stick with the H50 for now, SB's seem to be able to OC like crazy even on the stock cooler.

The H70 has a thicker rad, a lower profile pump assembly, rotate-able fittings on the pump assy and supposedly a better block design as well as coming with two fans.

You can easily go for two fans on your H50, assuming that you have the space, and it will give you a bit of a performance boost. What kind of fans were you thinking of? Martin did a great test of some fans on a rad here which is well worth a read.
