The H50 isn't the best watercooling, even, with a HSF like the Hyper 212+ or Thermalright 120 you can get a better cooling that with the H50.

Well water cooling usually sucks (in my experience anyway) for idle and kicks butt with load. Both of your temps seem a tad bit high especially for stock but like Saint said the H50 is a rip off - you would have been better going with a fantastic air cooling setup. You could try turning the fan speed up on the radiator or reapplying the thermal grease. Heck, maybe even overclock to see if it even goes up that high - I would keep it below 70 and you will be safe. H50 = ripoff though bro. If you're going to do water in the future do it right.

Idle is fine, load seems a little bit warm.
H50 ~ Megashadow in terms of performance, and my i7 930 o/c to 3.65GHz, it reaches 65 max.

i think that the pump in my h50 doesn't work good. i order 400$ liquid cooling system, will see what happened with the temps.

FYI, the H50 is not a ripoff. This is a silly and uninformed statement. It's not a custom WC unit and it not advertised to be one.

Matvey, if you have a unit with a bad pump, we'll be happy to replace it for you.

Why are you spamming a thread that has nothing to do with you? You have misquoted another member above and you your statement about "rip off" is just wrong. The product does what it is advertised to do for a fair price. You have no personal experience with the product obviously. Please troll somewhere else and leave the forum members with legitimate requests for assistance alone.

Really smart guy? Cuz this:

Cools just as well and costs a hell of a lot less. Maybe you need to explain your point instead of calling me a troll for bashing a widely known overpriced aka rip off product. Plus idle temps suck for the H50. Next.

H50 beats (Megashadow + two 1800rpm fan) according to a guy who owns both at Anandtech forum . However, most peoples on the internet said that H50 is a ripoff. Hope that TOM can do a review for them.

Do you mean Tomshardware, they did a review, here's a quote

" At the other end of the noise scale is Corsair’s H50. Almost as quiet as the Cogage True Spirit, it also provides nearly as much cooling performance in our open-air test bench. The H50’s somewhat remote radiator could be advantageous in especially hot systems if its rear-mounted fan is used as an intake, an installation method so effective that it has been adopted by many boutique builders. Cases with lid-mounted exhaust are designed to compensate for the change in rear fan orientation. "

Here's a quote from our own inhouse WC expert Conumdrum;

" I was a H50 hater being a big monster watercooler setup guy. But for what it is, it's pretty good. "

I meant a comparison review for the two. Since H50 puts minimum pressure on the MB, I will consider to switch to H50 if it really performs on par with (Megashadow + two 1800rpm fan).
