and the 40c is at full load.
I idle around 40c, load around 53c
not bad at all.
Here are some temps at idle. Notice the core voltage? I did this about a week ago, after I got the rig done. I just upped the multiplier and left everthing else set to auto in the bios. No I don't run it at that setting.
At stock undervolted to 1.232v load was about 40ºc at the most, stock Corsair fan only.
Here are some pics. I'm still trying to get hang of my new camera.
nice lil' rig you have there
Been running it for a few days it is a tad bit better than my Xiggy Dark knight. Will post pictures soon of it in the case.
Hey guys im new to the site ^_^ but ive recently got the H50 and ive got it in my NZXT Tempest case replaced all of the stock fans inside of it for 2 top exhausts are Sharkoon 140mm with 82.84cmf and the rest are 120mm Akasa 59.05cmf and im just wondering whether i should have it blowing out of my case the same as "T77Snapshot" as its the same case =) i think with it blowing in its warming up my asus striker as its northbridge is 60c when i play games xD any advice would help me a lot thanks =)
oh by the way love your pics of your rig "T77Snapshot"
Awesome, so maybe with a shroud & 2 fans @ 3.6ghz I should see something like 40c
yep, around there.
Thanks OP! You should stop by the Nzxt Case Club house, join and show off your case.
I just replaced a Xiggy 1283 with a H50. In just the first hour, the temps have dropped by about 5-6 degrees idle and more at load. I have had a longterm problem cooling this Chip - a AMD PII 940 BE. Seems like I got stuck with a hot one! I wouldnt be able overclock in any stable fashion over 3.4 as the temps would shoot up very high from an already high baseline. With the H50... there are the first few rays of hope. Still running stock clocks and will wait for a few hours before hitting the accelerator.
1. What is this shroud thing?
I have the stock setup right now with the fan blowing in air over the radiator, but I have 3 120mm fans pushing it out at different orientations.
2. How do I check how fast the Corsair fan is running?
I had read that sometimes it runs well below 1000rpms. If that is the case I might need to remedy that.
use slightly lower voltages, that should increase headroom
Actually I have had to increase the Volts a little.
To go beyond 3.4 Giz (x17 multiplier), if I dont increase the volts, sometimes the OS doesnt load properly or errors crop up very fast on prime.
My stock voltage is 1.35. At 1.425 I can run 3.6 stable on Prime with the H50 with temps around 49.
Anyone see this?
Stumbled across this today:
CoolIT OMNI A.L.C. meets NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480
It's a little H50 with some tweaks to use on a video card.
Really hope that Corsair considers releasing one of these under their label. I'd be really curious to see how well it would work with a shroud and a Noctua NF-P12 on say a HD 5870 or HD 5950.
AFAIK I may be getting one to test on the 470, from what I hear it may be a month or so before I even see it (working on the plate I would assume).
You'll have to tell us if it's awesome or deserving of one of these:
I really do hope that if this thing works as well as it's sounding it will they will continue to release plates for not only newer cards but maybe previous generation ones as well like say the HD 4870 or GTX 280 since those are pretty plentiful right now as well.
I wish, from what I heard, at the time, older cards were out. I was asked to reply once I had a 5 series or Fermi to test it on That doesnt mean it cant happen, just didnt seem likely in the grand scheme of things.
One thing going for CoolIt... at their site they list that they do have bigger rads for custom configurations! SLI, Crossfire, I think they may even be able to tame temperatures there too.
That's a bummer since they're really missing out on a lot of folks who went with the older stuff until the new stuff drops in price. But, as you say, it could still happen we'll just have to wait and see how things pan out.
So for all of you shrouded H50 owners, how do you attach the shrouds? The stock screws look to be only long enough to go through one fan, not two
it is possible though. you screw the inside of each fan to the rad, and then using regular fan screws screw one of the fans to the case. it's a little odd but stable and works great.
i recently shrouded mine and just went to the local hardware store and bought longer bolt through screws.
OK, that sounds like it works, I'll get longer screws if the below method doesn't work. How long of screws do you use
OK, that sounds good, that's what I was hoping to do, but I didn't know if it would work
Not sure how long maybe 1.5-2". The thread is 6/32 though
