Finished, I thought it would take me 30 min like most cases, but this one's cable management takes a bit longer, as well as the other accesories, I finished and was done to the best of my ability in two hours, had to make sure ALL the wiring was perfect.

Update* Idle H-50 temps went from 36-38c-40c down to 32-33c constantly, loads in games like GTA IV, have gone from 55-56c, to 45c. Big, big big difference

Bad pics from my phone, but here!

Yeah, with multiple gpus there's no way it'd fit. I'm not a multi-gpu kinda guy though


One of the 200mm fans makes an annoying...almost bugzapperish sound, and I bought 3x 200mm red leds, not knowing it already had a side, and top fan, but they don't have leds..so I guess it was worth it for looks.

I do like more Corsair H50 a lot more now, but when considering that cooler you really need the right case, my previous one wasn't due to no top fans, now I have dual 120mms pulling cool air in, then the top 200mms exhausting, instead of idleing @ 36-37c, it's now idleing at 32c so far. GTX 480 has dropped from 48-49c idle to 41-42c.

Do you know your previous Load temps?

My previous load temps were all over the place during the day, since my computer is right at the window (sun-view). But tommorow I'll get some load temps and post 'em here, I'm sure they have lowered considering how much more efficent my H50 is now.

Also, since I'm installing that huge spitfire GPU cooler reverse (heatsink will be facing down) the H50s "Heavy-GPU-Support) bracket will be a LIFE saver.

That's the gpu cooler they had in the thermright case. I probably would have just installed an H03 or something, but you'd need to remove the side fan air duct.

I though it may be, I took it off and couldn't find any pics of how it normally goes (I forgot), but it sure is working well even if it's installed wrong, how does it go? (Assumeing your talking about the side fan, if your talking about the front shroud, that's exactly how it is on the computer cases box..

Gotcha covered:



That is how she goes, and stick a fan in there.

Yeah I can't even do that. I'd have to move my GPU down a slot, which I can't due to my X-Fi Gamer and wireless card xD, I'll see what I can do when I get my new gpu cooler on.

*EDIT* oh wait, looking at your pics compared to mine, it looks like you can level it up more?

Your GPU is in the second expansion bay slot, it will fit if you want it to. Otherwise it is installed incorrectly.

Yeah I went ahead and just took out the shroud for now, I'll put it back on correctly when my new cooler comes. I can't believe I didn't notice that, as it was completely covering up the 480 fan...surprised temps were fine. Thanks!
