H50 Water cooler help!!

I have just bought a H50 water cooler and have the fan on the radiator as intake. Before the H50 I had a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and as of right now, I have to say the Hyper 212 Plus heatsink worked much better than this H50. I don't think it's the way I put it in there or anything. I looked at a video by corsair on how to install it and I did it right. room temperature is about 77*F or a little cooler. Before I put the H50 on I was running between 40-48 when not gaming, and between 50-60*C when gaming. Now it's just a steady 50*C not gaming. I have one intake in the front, one exhaust on the side, and the one intake connected to the radiator. I have a x-cruiser 2 case so the radiator/fan don't exactly line up perfectly with the fan screw holes so I zip tied through a fan screw hole to a case screw hole so it would stay up. If I need to take pictures ask. I'm running a Core i5 750 1156 OC'd @ 3.00GHz. (Have always been running at 3.00GHz) I put clock back to default(2.66GHz) and it is running at 47*C which does not seem right for a water cooler... Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

The Corsair H50 is NOT WATERCOOLING!

The H50 gets beat by high end air, so I'm not really supprised why the Hyper 212 did better.

Anyways,
1. Make sure it is seated properly.

2. Increase fan speed and see.

First the H50 is no better than a good air cooler so the Hyper 212+ will probably perform as good if not better than the H50. What is the difference in temp while under 100% load.
The idle temps seem a little high to me they should be around 35-38c with either cooler.
If you are thinking about water cooling I would get the H70 at least. It is much better than the H50 and it beats some of the top air coolers.
If it was me I would return the H50 and just use the Hyper212+

I'm using cool it eco and I idle @ 29 and burn @ 63 @ full load
i5 750 4.0ghz ...

Reapply your thermal paste and reseat your cooler. It's not a bad cooler at all, it should beat that cheap cooler of yours.

And it is water cooling, there is 2 tubes , 1 pump, a small reservoir, a rad with a fan and liquid inside.

It's just an all-in-one kit, which indeed sucks compared to those real water cooling kit over $500...

IMO H50 isn't a bad cooler, it's not as good as any high-mid range air cooler.

FYI, my Cool It Eco with AS5 beats my True black push/pull by 1 degree :)  And don't tell me the true sucks because it's a very good cooler. Old but good.

No. It is not water cooling. It is low cost all in one water cooling. When people reffer to water cooling it should be the real deal, not some of this All in one LCLCS cr@p. I hate how the manufacturers advertise it as "water cooling", but then people expect it to be like real WCing where the H50,H70,etc are easily beaten by a mid-range WCing loop by significant margin.

A CPU only loop is ~$250 (example: http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-H20-220-Edge-PC-Liquid... ). $500 for the top of the line with full cover GPU blocks.

You must have a freak CPU because those temps are extremely low for 4ghz

Max temps with Coolit ECO and H50 i7 920@3.8ghz

Max temps with Hyper212+ i7 920@3.8ghz
http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-r...

The Thermalright TRUE Black was a great 775 cooler and not a bad 1366/1156 cooler, but not even near as good as some of the top coolers out now.

^ He probably has a Low VID CPU. Lucky man. One of my friends had a Q6600 that ran at stock at something like 1.02v :ouch:

That being said your CPU may not get temps like that Madcamper, but they should be a little lower than what you are getting with either cooler.

You said it yourself ;)  It is in some sort of way water cooling but I know what you mean, it's not real water cooling :na: 

I love my i5 750 :) 
I wonder if he loves me too :heink:

And at 3.6ghz it runs @ 1.16 volt :)  100% stable if I remember well : 22 idle and burn at somewhere near 45-48 :)

H50 is an overpriced, advertised option as a watercooling device. 'Liquid cooling', yeah sure, very good, no.
