How will you join the H50 club with an Antec Kuhler 920?
Simple.... its made by asetek
Right, but it's a completely different line of coolers. There should be a generic "Self contained liquid cooling systems club", or a separate Antec club as it's branded by them. They share the same OEM but they are two different products.
I just think it would be odd to be in a corsair H50/H70 club with an antec cooler, regardless of the fact that it's manufactured by the same people.
However, it's not up to me. I would hold off for the H80 if I were you.
I can buy it. i just cant mount it
No KUHLER dudes cant join, though thread title should remove H50, since there are many variants now
oh well, might go start my own club then. Chow!!
Not part of the club but maybe this is something worth asking you guys for some advice???
intake = better temps.
actually they made my temps worse by about 5-10'c
switched the fans around and ran 30 runs of Metro2033 benchmark, all temps were recorded with Coretemp.
Coolant temp: Never over 33-35'c idle. Load: 40'c (never goes over 40'c unless ambient is really hot then maybe 41'c)
CPU temp: 33-40'c idle. Load: between 60-65'c (dependant on ambient temperature)
Coolant temp: 32'c idle Load: 45'c
CPU temp: 35-40'c idle Load: 71-73'c
Even after shut down. 10mins later with the case open, i can still feel the heat coming from the case.
Then you either have factors like ambient air temp, fan speed, temp of air in case, etc, that are affecting that. I get much better temps intaking air with both my full water setup, and my old H70. Maybe it's too warm in your room, or it's sucking up warm air from your cards? Hard to say...
This is strange though. You should NOT get temps that different or high unless it's sucking super hot air in...
Normally intake means better temps, but since your GPUs dump so much hot air out below your cooler, your better off as exhaust.
I did say 2x6970's dump a serious amount of hot air!! (its in the diagram)
and since my PC sits so close to the wall. the hot air was just sucked back in.
I knew it was gonna happen but i thought id kill time and give it ago anyway so i can so i did it
I understand that, I have dual 6970's on mine, and it doesn't affect any of the air intake. But then again the 800D has a lot of space in between the expansion slots and the rad spots. Also, I keep my ambient air temp really cool. You need to adjust your computer spot, or just keep the exhaust. The temps look fine, so I wouldn't worry about running intake.
your 800D is also a full ATX tower.
Mines just a mid tower 902. so its obviously a little more cramped with worser airflow as i cant have as many fans like its big brother the 1200 attached.
been meaning to go back to full ATX for a while. Im surprised i managed to 2 6970s in here. you cant put them in straight on, you have to put them inside the case at an angle before you slot them in otherwise they just wont fit inside the case.
Yep. I can't work with anything less than a full tower these days. I actually use a 1200 for my other main computer at home, which is a great case still. Mine is a bit customized, and pushes so much air it's ridiculous.
My H50 has started making a noise like the sound of a wire hitting a fan. Ideas, comments?
Sounds like the bearing is going out in your fan. Corsair only used a sleeve bearing in the included fan.
Oh, should have said it before, the sound is coming from the pump. CPU temp is higher than it used to be.
common sense tells me your pump is dying.
You can toss me into the list. I actually just installed my H50 yesterday. It doesn't have the fan that came with it but it has 2 skythes push/pull. I forgot to see what my temps were before but I'm getting 34c on my PH II x4 940 crunchin 24/7. I'll get a few pics when ever I get around to it lol.
Heres my H50. Just got around to gettin a pic.
hey there fello corsair users. got a question for anyone:
When I put my corsair h50 on my new board (gig 990FXA-UD7), I have no temp sensors. I've heard you have to reset something in bios but don't know what. I checked in several apps (hwmonitor, sppedfan, bios iirc, core temp) they all show temp at 0*c. I know thats not right.
Anyone know how to fix this so I can monitor temps. I do crunching 24/7 and I need to be aware of temps.
Your H50 might be screwed down too tight. I've seen that happen with coolers before.
check to see if unleashed mode or ACC is turned on. if so, turn them off cause they cause the temp sensors to stop working.
I'll check that out. I know it was a lil funky getting it on in the first place. I had the ring mounted then had to back it off to get the pump in there and lock into place. Then I went around with the screwdriver and got them snug. I didn't think it was over tightened but I'll have a look see.
Your talkin in bios right? Any idea where as I don't recall seeing them.
