Fan Shroud Testing Corsair H50 **Updated H50 Results 1/13/10**

77551 207
Here I will be doing a whole bunch testing when my Corsair H50 comes in.
I will do a slue of different fan configurations like the ones listed below.
(Arrows point in the direction of air flow)

Fan --> Shroud --> Rad -->
Rad --> Shroud --> Fan -->
Fan --> Shroud --> Rad --> Fan -->
Fan --> Rad --> Shroud --> Fan -->
Fan --> Rad --> Fan -->
Fan --> Rad -->
Rad --> Fan -->

I was actually unaware of what a fan shroud was until about 2 hours ago. Lol.
Here is a pic of the awesome one I made with a junk Raidmax fan that pushed about 40cfm.

All testing will be done with these fans.

Tests

Testing will be done with the 550 at 4.1Ghz 1.55v.

Corsair H50 Results

Fan-->Rad-->Fan
Ambient______Idle______Load
_24C________24C_______39C

Rad-->Fan
Ambient______Idle______Load
_24C________29C_______41C

Fan-->25mm Shroud-->Rad--Fan
Ambient______Idle______Load
_24C________24C_______38C

Fan-->50mm Shroud-->Rad--Fan
Ambient______Idle______Load

HW Monitor said my Minimum Temps was 20C.. I think that was a glitch. Haha.

Stay tuned for more results.

Wow, looking forward to these results. For comparison, will you please post your temps on air, before the H50, too?

Sure, I will post up my Mugen 2 Push/Pull temps.

Sethy, if tease him, thats not cool, right? I ain't come here to talking negative nor argument with this thread/ OP neither. I just telling him that #5 will not get improvement for temp nor better airflow... there will have dead spot on rad, and more difficult the airflow..

Its all good Gamerig. He gets where your coming from. It generally more helpful to be a little more direct.
