I just upgraded to an H100i and now I have no use for my old H50. There gotta be something cool I can do this this thing, right? Anything would be better than just having it sit in a box being useless.

I've heard some people suggest using it to cool your GPU, but other have said that not only would doing that be an enormous PITA, you also won't see much of a performance increase. I don't know what to think about that.

Any other "cool" suggestions (pardon the stupid pun :kaola:  )?

you should've saved the money on an H100i and sold your H50 to get a total amount of an entry level water cooling kit. Suggesting any mod to the H50 would be a waste of both time and the unit. If its perfectly in working order, cutting it up is a far a worse idea then recycling it on the GPU.

I'd sell it.
Or give it to a less fortunate friend.
Put it in your parent's computer.
About all you could do with it is the GPU mod, which is, as you said, a pita and warranty voiding nightmare.

This dude actually sells brackets that make the process of mounting an H Series cooler to your GPU really easy.

Don't waste your money on the bracket.

Search up "Nvidia The Mod." Those are zipties, very efficient and cheap.

So I got this mod installed and, I have to say, it's actually pretty awesome! With Furmark's GPU burn test, my video card never gets above 45c That's a serious drop! And with Dwood's bracket, there's really no reason not to do this if you have a spare water cooler hanging around.

Thanks everyone!
