    INspired by the "CoolIt ECO vs Corsair H50" thread, I decided to add an old Coolit Eliminator to my H50 loop:

    Temps from idle to Prime 95 load @ 4 hrs(down from 63c a loss of 18c):

    Surprisingly, yes!

    I wasn't expecting too much, and had already tried 2x H50 rads, and got only 8c drop, so the additional 10c is definately welcome.

    The Eliminator is useless on it's own, and with just the H50, case temps would go up as much as the coolant temps did...which means chipset temps would as well.

    Now, running both prime95 and Furmark, board chipset temps peak @ 42c, rather than 57c.

    And because the coolant temp and case temps are lower, the vgas are cooler as well.

    I have a PWM 92m fan on the Eliminator, running @ 40%, so it's not even remotely loud, or anything.

    Now that the experiment has proved fruitfull, I'll pull it all apart again, shorten tubing, get rid of the grey Coolit plate(which holds the controller), move the controller to the case back, paint the case insides...maybe some sleeving...lots of work left! :laugh:





    EDIT: It's not a freezone...just a 3-tec 40-watt Eliminator.

    18c for 40w...

    That sounds like a good idea, jrgerryd!

    I'll start a worklog this weekend as I was simply experimenting, but now that it has proved to work OK, I think I'll make it permanent.

    The H50 is very easy to mod, so I'm sure many people could make use of a guide to pull it apart.

    Slightly saggy venomous x, fixed as soon as the paint on my prop-up stick dries. I love how there's no ram obstruction and if I slap on another fan it performs the same as a D14. Pretty nuts.
