So after using the Corsair H50 for a month now, here are my thoughts:
Pros: Very easy to install, light compared to heatsinks, easy to work with in the case since it is smaller than a heastsink, radiator is small enough to work with as well, and great temps(see below for specs & temps)
Cons: Liquid in the case has always scared me, but Corsair gives you a two year warranty and I have read on their forums that the pump in these things will last for many years past the warranty. Possible leaks, but again, Corsair says this thing will not leak and after looking at how the thing is put together, I believe them. At least it won't leak in the lifetime you have it in the system.
Other thoughts: The directions tell you to pull air in from the case by mounting the fan/radiator to the inside back of the exhaust port. I actually did it different. I had it in a push/pull configuration. I push air from the inside, through the radiator and then pull the air through with a second fan on the outside of the back exhaust port.Read more ›
The Corsair H50 was installed into a nMediapc HTPC-8000 wooden case cooling an AMD Phenom II X4 955 overclocked (3.7ghz) processor.
The instructions in my box were not the best and could very much be improved upon for someone with little system building experience. I've been building my own for some time now so it was no big deal to have to remove the motherboard to get the back plate on and figure out how the mounting bracket works. Thermal grease supplied didn't seem like it was quite enough so I put a very thin coat on the CPU itself to ensure having even coverage.
For my own purposes, I replaced the stock thermal paste with Arctic Silver (I rarely trust manufacturer paste), but by the looks of the stock paste, it may have performed just as well and doesn't look like it is globbed on.
The only difficulty I had was that the tubes are quite rigid and due to the design being closed loop, are fixed length. Due to this, the orientation of the fan in my case almost put alot of pressure on the tubes, but nothing to cause a kink or difficulty.
Overall very impressed with its cooling capabilities, it really does outperform even the best air cooler i've used in the past, and the best part is it is very quiet vs the air coolers, and does not take up 2/3 of my case!
I did not go shopping for a liquid cooler, but for a good air cooler. Luckily I saw this cooler all by itself at the end a row where someone had left it. I did not see it on the shelf. The salesman tried to talk me out of it, in a helpful way, and wanted details about my case to know if it would fit. I told him I didn't know the name of my case, but I knew it would fit, even if I had to drill and cut holes with a jig saw or dremel tool. I am not afraid of those things. If you are afraid of the drill, then you should be very careful with case choice. This cooler may not be for you.
Don't let the fact that it is water (or some mysterious liquid) bother you. It is sealed up tight, never to be opened, and dry as a bone. You will never see, feel, or sense, liquid, unless something goes wrong.
Before I started on this mission I really needed a new cooler. The problem was, was that my Core i7, at stock speeds, using the stock heat sink, reached almost 90 centigrade at full load. I was at full load using DVD fab to convert my DVD for my iphone. DVDFab uses all of the cores at full speed, and doesn't hold back at all. I can convert a DVD in about 8 minutes, which seems unimaginably fast to me. My old system would take hours. Stock temps were idling at 38 or so, Case temps 32-35. Once I saw those temps on my CPU, I shut down DVD fab and wondered what to do. Intel's stock stock cooler would barely keep their CPU safe at full speed.Read more ›
