@ erocker

That looks good bro, in your case I say also that intake on the H50 will give you the better temps. Keep us posted, so far you are doing a good job :toast:

Put together, running a buch of wprime to get things warm. It's working very well so far.





Fan is blowing out. I don't really care if this is the best setup for the fans, It's clean and looks good and it works. The AII x4 is pretty cool to begin with. It's a HTPC, clean and looking good is important. I'll post some before and after temps in a moment. :)

Ooh, another HTPC with a H50 in it. Very awesome! Love Lian Li. :toast: I wish mine had the space inside yours does.

Man, there has to be a retailer that has these over there. I can check with USPS tomorrow I'm headed over there anyways. I'm not kidding the cardboard box that this comes shipped in weighs almost the same as the case itself. It's all very light, so hopefully not too bad. :)

i have already checked, caseking, oc uk, and several others, no luck :shadedshu

and for like 40$+ its a pretty awesome deal, would NOT mind paying 40$ for shipping if thats what it takes, a regular thermaltake lanbox lite is like 120$ in denmark and i have already owned one of these and was not too impressed

so if you would check the shipping to denmark then i would be very thankfull :rockout:

Heres mine in its new NZXT M59 home. The Silverstone FM121 fan dropped my temps another 2c. It sounds like a leaf blower at top speed.

add me to the club! so far im running LinX right now and its maxing out at 56c. Not sure if hat sure if thats a good temp or not but its working. getting about the same temps I was getting with my Xigmatek. Just looks alot cooler.

Ive got the stock corsair fan pulling and a silverstone fm121 pushing.

Running it on my PHII 955c3 at 3838mhz w/ 1.45 volts.

I do have the pump hooked up to a fan header but its a non adjustable one. Im thinking i might wire it in with an adapter. Also I had to put it in with the cosair logo upsidedown. will that affect it at all?

silverstone makes some good quality cases, and that one erocker has looks pretty darn sweet imo with touch buttons and what not.

lian li v351 and NZXT rogue is also nice

Is that a good case erocker? Nice price.
It's alright. Looks great, it's a bit flimsy but when put together everything is solid. And for $40 bucks I had no problems putting it under the knife. :D

Well Chicken anyway.....I finally got it in.... Here are some pics guys let me in!!!

Also it did lower my temps! Buy about 4c over a CM Hyper 212+. But it raised my VTT's about 7c. So now my temps look like this at 3.8ghz with a 1.3vcore and a 1.21 VTT. This was after 5 runs of LinX with 93% of my RAM.....

60c Max Core temp
55c Max Vreg
26c Max Chipset

24c Idle CoreTemp
38c Idle Vreg
20c Idle Chipset








I have it running in push pull sort of like this....



The only difference between this top pic and mine is.... I am running in Duel fan config Push/Pull. Also I don't have the extra front fan. Instead I have a top fan which is an exhaust. I have not tried to see if I can get better temps by making the Corsair H50 intake from the back instead of exhaust. But when I have time tomorrow I will play around a little bit to find out how to get the best temps I can.

Very nice. Put a push/pull on yours, you might see some better temps, It made a big difference on mine.

New Build with H50

Well I put 90% of the new build together here is a picture
new build.jpg

I have a question though about to clean off the stock thermal paste and apply the Fusion 400 paste. I have some 70% Isopropyl alcohol. Is that OK to use to clean it and also where would you guys recommend putting the paste on the CPU itself or heatsink for this.
