Most wire strippers have screw cutters.
I currently have 2 Yate Loons (45CFM) around my H50 radiator. What kind of temp drop can I expect by switching these to Scythe 105CFM fans?
I ended up taking out the shroud. Screws worked at default length just took forever to screw in. The shroud offered no performance or sound benefit for me.
here is mine
Wow thats a tight fit! Those i3's are very impressive! I've been looking into gettone one myself.
i have been thinking about swapping to a 120x38mm fan in the front and running it at 7v should be pretty silent and get better airflow. i need to sleeve the PSU to get the inside of the case cleaned up. i wish someone had a SFF PSU that was modular.
Yeah, it would look quite a bit better without those sata and molex cables there. Are you running the stock h70 fan or what?

i want to swap that into it @7v it should be pretty quiet but still got some umph
I have a ultra kaze 2k rpm and it's great on my h50. Isn't too loud either and pushes some good air!
thats the hope
WOW that does look good!
Hmmm if it out does the h50 may have to snag one of these too.
Anyone have H60?
I recently finished building my first custom water loop.
Costed about 6 times as much money as my Corsair H50. Best part about it is my temps on my NB/MOSFET/VGA have had great temperature drops.
It's a single loop.
Pump>3x120mm RAD>CPU>NB/MOSFET>1x120mm RAD>GPU>RES>back to pump
Ran the same benchmark that I started this thread with and it looks like it beat the Corsair H50 by about 6 degrees C.
Also why not change this to the Asetek coolers club and allow the new Antec owners a place to come in and compare stories?
They are welcome.
I should be in this club too.
Mainly went with the H50 because it does equivalent cooling to my old Noctua heatsink but takes up way, way less room in my case. Win win.
There's mine and had it for 6 months and swear by them. Want one now for the 775 build I am doing
I think it is safe to say that Corsair has done a great job with this type of cooler. Since the inception of this club the H50 has earned its reputation and become legit.
You should take a look at the H60. Looks even better than H50.
Love my H70. I would love to join the club...
well . what can i say ... temps are the best with H50 .. much much better than my old Zalman 9700 xD, even with overclocking !
Do not want one anymore man this thing is for who make soft wellness fitness overclocking...
My H50 is in another rig my Antec 900. Its not cooling as well since I broke one of the Kaze's will have to pick another one up. I should make a shroud from the broken Kaze see how well that does.
I'll probably join this club soon. Just waiting for a retailer to get stock of some Antec Kuhler 920's (also made by asetek) the 920 is the same as the H70 more or less. but the only difference is, you can plug in the Antec to a USB header and use it to check temps and fan RPM.
Im not sure if the H70 has the same feature, but I was out to get a H70 originally. They have really dropped in price. I can pick up a new one for under £70.
I should have it in the next few days. unless the retailer im looking at who has the kuhler tagged as 'item due today' is bullshitting.
I cant find the kuhler anywhere else. some places wont have it for 3weeks. other places wont have it for 2 months.
and by that time the Corsair H80's should be out.
