Two H50 pumps, two radiators, three 120mm fans and one reservoir.

With room temperature set to 21c/70f, here are my results:


CPU Only WC






CPU and NB WC






CPU and NB WC with Ice Water Chiller

Reservoir Temperature 7c at idle and 11c at the end of 20 runs of IBT.


Reservoir Temperature 11c at idle and 15c at the end of 20 runs of IBT.

Corsair H50 kits were on sale at Best Buy for $60 USD each so just had to get two of them.

Lapped the H50 up to 1000 grit. CPU is lapped to 2000 Grit. Also added a NB water block to the loop.








Removed fins from second H50 Pump (booster pump) for better flow.










Insulated the booster pump since its not going to be cooling anything, just pumping.






Noctua Black Edition Case Fans




Now lets stuff all this mess back into the mini-tower.




Here she is all put back together.












I'll be adding a water block on the Mosfet next.

And there you have it. Two H50 pumps, two radiators, three 120mm fans and one reservoir.

Chilled Water, only to be used on suicide runs. wPrime for example. Built this simple, easy, cheap 1gal heat exchanger (water chiller) for under $35 USD.


20' of 1/4" I.D. x 3/8 O.D. copper tubing. Dual pass wound by hand. $24 USD @ Home Depot.










1 gal cooler ($4) and 2 O-ringed compression fittings ($6)



1" thick neoprene insulation wrapped in aluminum tape and then wrapped in black duck take. Freebee






Now lets put this rig to the test.

2 Test. One at stock Bios Settings and another at my generic 4GHz clock. Same clocks as all other test in post #1. Cooler was filled with water and ice.

For makeup water I'm using distilled water bottled by magical little people that live deep in the Hawaiian forests.




After an initial test run I had way too much condensation forming in the NB Water Block. Must be all that pretty chrome. So I decided to insulate the MB. Nothing too fancy, just enough to run a few test.






Oh, and here's some condensation. NB and radiators sweating like ....








Results of test are recorded in post #1 (CPU and NB WC with Ice Water Chiller )

Thank you everyone. That mini-tower has my hands all cut up.

This is an ongoing project. Post #1, 2, and 3 will be updated periodically with more pictures and temperature tests. Just updated post #1, 2 and 3.

And here is a short video that shows how the 2 pumps are flowing during an initial purge. After running chilled water tests.

Lol, I'm also faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, hehe.

Actually, I did do it by hand. Just a 4" PVC coupling to help form the coil. Coiled it inside the coupling then coiled it around the outside. PITA.

ya i did assume you actually did it by hand but you answered what i was actually asking just fine ... i bet that was a PITA though ..

Thanks. The only other H50 mod that I know of on this site is here.

Here's an epic 1000+ page thread on the H50.

my h50 mod has changed considerably so. It is nice ice water cooled.

will post pics later

one difference I will add is I added a drip shield to the top of the HDD,s to prevent any drip damage possibility.

I also use a large reservoir with 1 large external pump and the internal H50.
