If you ever decide you need LED fans, just buy another one. In the meantime, a clipped fan still works as a fan.

Building/testing a low budget PC upgrade for my sister (mentioned in the PC ATM thread too lol). In the meanwhile she doesn't get her birthday present, I'll have it as a dedicated full time cruncher. She might be happy to crunch with it as she did with her macbook a while ago. Won't be on all the time then, but some points should still come through.

me me me "raises hand"

or snag so good deals and build a real WCing loop for only alittle more ;)
yeah but keep in mind the H50 is as simple as a air cooler to install and is maintenance free. I absolutely love mine! when the a/c is kicking a bit, load does not exceed 40ºc for my AMD rig with the factory Corsair fan, just pushing.

I've got to say I really like the whole setup.
Hmm....
Maybe I should get one :cool:
You should go for it! I picked mine up at best buy in concord mills for only $79.99. I normally buy everything from the egg.. but lately there prices are high... So if i can get it for around the same price I'm going to start buying locally.

I really didn't think the install was as bad as some have said. The key is get an extra set of hands.

or snag so good deals and build a real WCing loop for only alittle more ;)
True but you'll have to change out water and do maintance.. This is just set it and forget it. and plus what you save in additives and stuff you could about buy a new H50 every year.. but the best part about that is you don't have too. :toast:

Now don't get me wrong. I agree that a loop would be better. As long as the person is willing to put the work into it. :toast:


Don't you just love that thing?? :toast:
Bro, I'm kicking myself for not buying one sooner! :roll: :toast: This thing is awesome! and looks sexy in my new storm scout! Pictures on the way. :toast: My CM hd cage I bought awhile back looks kickass in it too. :toast:

Yeah definitely! My biggest surprise of this lot was the Gigabyte board (first time I went for something non-ASUS). Cost me less than the ASUS on my Q8400 and it has so many more features. Even a half-decent overclocking menu in BIOS. For just £30 brand new. And I really like the blue.

From now on goodbye Asus, hello Gigabyte :respect:

I would be willing to do maintenance on a full loop, but it's almost 2x the up-front cost even for a cheap loop....and the PC-A05S has no space for any sort of full loop. Maybe space for a pump/res inside, but it would be tight, and I'd have to hand the rad off the back. I'll look into a H50, I was considering a HDT-S1283 or Mugen2, but I don't think that either of those would be enough of an upgrade to be worth it...but the H50 would. And I also want a new folding card. Ugh.... :(

@CP: Any luck again with the i7 rig?

I think you would be impressed at what the H50 can do. I think its totally worth it. I have another one coming for another cruncher build going on.

Well, in that case, as soon as I get the RF sold (friend says he's going to buy it for $55-60), I think I'll get one :)

I picked up a Coolit Domino to see how they cooled. The Domino is still a great cooler, but not in the same class as the Corsair. ;)

In a state of flux...
Personally, I dont like how messy the Corsair looks and it offers very little (nothing??) over "good air", that makes it a niche product in my view and it has no real market place...the only reason it sells is because of it being 'water cooling' when really its just another Coolit rip-off that performs the same as an air cooler of its price range with no gain in performance.

I'd sooner take an air cooler such as the Fenrir, Baram or even the Noctua that's huge as the chance of failure is pretty much no existent (the fan can still fail but the sink cant) while the temps are the same. :)

Besides that, nothing really looks cleaner (i.e more aesthetically pleasing) than a very well thought out and put together air setup...not even water...thats coming from a person who has both of his main rigs WCed with pretty decent setups. :shadedshu



BUT, each to their own and while I dont like the Corsair, you cant deny it is a capable unit and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :toast:

I would be willing to do maintenance on a full loop, but it's almost 2x the up-front cost even for a cheap loop....and the PC-A05S has no space for any sort of full loop. Maybe space for a pump/res inside, but it would be tight, and I'd have to hand the rad off the back. I'll look into a H50, I was considering a HDT-S1283 or Mugen2, but I don't think that either of those would be enough of an upgrade to be worth it...but the H50 would. And I also want a new folding card. Ugh.... :(

@CP: Any luck again with the i7 rig?
The rig is fine, I need to empty out the drive though. The lack of space is causing it to not respond after some time of it running. My mom just came back home today from the operation so hopefully this week I can get around to doing it.

Guys I need a little help on a RAM issue, just want to be sure on something.

I have a 3x2gb Corsair Platinum kit, but I only use 2 of the sticks on my P55 board. I have the opportunity to pick up a single 1gb stick of matching Corsair Platinum. I want to run (3) 2gb sticks and (1) 1gb stick for a total of 7gb RAM.

I am fairly certain that this is fine as I have a similar setup in my netbook with a 2gb and 1gb module which still operates in Dual Channel, but I am unsure if the same will work on the P55 setup. Anyone know for sure if this will work?

Thanks!

As long as it is same exact ram it's ok.
