I'm so overjoyed I just feel I have to tell someone, haha! :bounce: 

Going from stock i7 heatsink to the H50, my temps dropped from 46-48C idle to 27-30C. :D 

Epic. Win. lol. :)  Good time to start overclocking I think! :sol:

Those are pretty good H50 temps. Overclocking should be a breeze.

is that with two fans in push/pull? or just the stock fan that came with it?

Oh yeah, I so happen to have another fan laying around so I doubled up, lol.

FYI - overclocking is not a breeze if you've never done it before, lol. The more overclocking guides I read - its "good idea" value goes down.

I'm half tempted to use the asus auto-overclocker but all I read about that is horrible..

That IS a great temp drop. What CPU?

It's an Intel 1156 i7-860 @ stock 2.8GHz.

Hello,i have been thinking on buying the H50 cooler.
The problem is,is there any refilling needed,because i heard it is liquid
cooler and that requires refilling.Also do i have to replace the pump and
reservoir down the line after months of using it?
Thank you.

^ It's a zero-maintenance, sealed water cooling kit.

Ok,if thats the case,how long does the H50 last for before i have to buy another one?

If it's completely sealed and not even a tiny 1 µm hole is made, then it should last until the pump wears out, which I'm not sure when it will. I'm pretty sure it will last a few years at least.

Lmao...Thats what the thread is for,you ask around for it and hoping for good answers before you buy it,lol,the Corsair H50 is my gaming build list.Thank you.
The chances are,if the corsair suppose to be the top quality company in the computer industry,there shouldnt be any leakage at all.
