Windows 7: Corsair H50 temps

Corsair H50 temps

I like the Corsair H50 water cooler, great price and it works. The hoses COULD BE a lot less stiff though.....i feel the uber stiff hoses are causing a lot of stress on the radiator pipes........just my 2 cents

IDLE temps (about an hour sitting idle) on left, FULL CPU load temps (using PRIME95) on right.

I'm actually thinking about picking one of these up for my next build.

My radiator is the other way round if that makes any difference.

The H70 is just around the corner if it already hasn't been released.

further updates after a (few weeks) of using the H50!

while i have NOT had any probs temp-wise or leak wise, i do feel that Corsair should do the following:

- softer hoses!!! softer hoses!!!! softer hoses!!!!! geeebus man....the hoses that come with the cooler are more rigid than the copper plumbing in my house! they are putting strain on the inlet/outlet pipes of the rad BIGTIME......where most of the leaks have been reported (cracked inlet/outlet pipes).............

HOWEVER, that rant aside, i like the system.......i like the fact one can mount the rad and CPU heatsink/pump any way

I like the compactness, price and overall looks of the unit

and i cannot argue with the low temps i get........

I looked at one of these but
1). Seems to be a messy look to me. Cannot do much with the hoses and such
2). Reviews don't seem to show that temps are all that low with this cooler compared to others in the same price area.

Ditto - I like the idea behind it, and they do perform quite adequately, but are still outperformed by some air coolers.

Having said that, you could certainly do a lot worse.

I very much like my H50...
But I saw this: ECO C240 A.L.C. and think that it may replace the H50 on my current pc and I'll retire the H50 to my daughter's pc.

Comparing it to a stock Intel heatsink isn't really saying anything. How about some comparisons to the H50???

And the one review they link to isn't saying a whole lot either.... Computer Ed

Sorry

My new heatsink the Zalman ShenZhen hp-92f-02a that I bought on my vacation in China gives me about the same temperatures as the Intel stock hsf although I did put a little too less thermal paste on it (about 1/3 of a pea size and also atempted to spread the thermal paste over the cpu with a index card without much avail). The hsf costed 65yuan including shipping which converts to just under $10.
Pics of the Zalman ShenZhen hp-92f-02a are attached.

Here is a nice writeup on the flow of the radiators between the H50 and the ECO C240. My Official H50 & ECO A.L.C. Comparison - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

From what I have read, I'm not sure the 240 is worth 2.5x as much as the Corsair H50.

You aren't supposed to spread around the thermal paste. You are intended to let it spread out on it's own.
