After building several water cooling loops from scratch, I know what kind of a hassle building a good loop is. I have to admit, that I've usually been stuffing them into cases that don't have the luxury of empty space, but nevertheless, this kit seems like a good and cheap cooler for the regular-joe... I do however find it a bit odd that Corsair insists on changing the normal direction of the back fan on most chassis. Of course, this will result in lower temperatures for the CPU, as it draws "cool" air straight from the outside, but this decision may actually mess with the rest of the airflow in the case in a drastic way. In many cases this back fan is the only fan that draws air from the case...

A small update on the LGA1156 mounting kit. It's in the works, and should be available by the end of the month. Any existing Hydro H50-owners will be able to get one from the Corsair Customer Service, and probably from the Corsair Store too for free (par the shipping costs). The mounting kit will also be supplied with the cooler from then on.

Is the Hyro H50 using two 120mm fans to cool the radiator? The first picture of the radiator installed only shows one fan, between the back of the case and the radiator. The last picture in the article shows a fan on the other side of the radiator also. I would assume they would be working in a push-pull scenario. Have you tried reversing the air flow so the push-pull blows out the case instead of into the case?

Whoops, thanks for spotting that one! Indeed I tried a push-pull setup, mainly just for fun, but also to show how it's possible, and easy to add another fan to the rad. Anyway the results weren't too encouraging with the test setup...

So no, the kit doesn't come with two fans, and sorry for the confusing photo.

I was about to ask if this cooler can be used with SilverStone SUGO SG03: http://metku.net/index.html?path=review ... /index_eng

Luckily I found the answer by myself: http://www.3dgameman.com/forums/showthr ... post727728

So, it is really possible. What makes this interesting is that the SG03 is an extremely small and portable case: a real dream for LAN party gamers and for those who like to have a small PC. Now you don't need to sacrifice CPU performance in order to use SilverStone SUGO SG03. As far as I know, Corsair H50 water cooling kit can cool almost any CPU around. I’m already planning to build one :p

Yeah the hoses are pretty darn stiff, but I guess tou can bend them tightly enough for the cooler to fit in the Sugo case.

Olen tässä nyt vesijäähdytystä katsellut prossulle ja ajattelin kysyä pitääkö tuo pumppu kovaakin meteliä? Mistään kun ei tunnu löytyvän kommenttia pumpusta niin taitaa olla hiljanen? :D Jäähdytys tulisi AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ prossulle joka kellotetaan ~3Ghz

We are using it in our business;
let me tell you; this cooling kit is right choice;
at the start I was a bit skeptical as we have heavy CPU machines and we usually do simulations and virtual designing & testing
But eventually it proved itself; although our machines run 24/7 but no worries.

Hehe, good to hear that it works under some "real work" too. :)
