That is a significan't reduction. I guess I should go ahead and install the H50.

Is it just me, or is the radiator for the H50 not sitting flush with the case?

 

Nice build...that board is on my list ATM...

I see what you mean re: the H50. Hmmmmm. But it is a nice build.

It is the new "adjustable pitch" H50. The 4° tilt allows for increased airflow by creating a partial vacuum around the intake thereby causing a small vortex in front of the radiator for additional cooling. Alternatively, he did not have long enough screws for the top two mounting holes? Pick your made up excuse. ;-)

That would have been a good April Fool's joke. I actually believed it until you added the alternative excuse. I sat for a second trying to figure out how to determine which side to angle out and how the increased turbulence would help the cooling factor.

You are looking way too close. :)

 

Tim got it right when he mentioned the screws not being long enough. I needed screws about 3/8" long and had to go busy some. Unfortunately, all I could fine was 1". I ended up cutting them to size with my dremel and now everything is flush and as you would expect it. If it makes you feel better I could post a picture with it setting correctly.

 

 

Hey Michaels!

 

Did your board come with a USB3 header connector (20-1 pin)? Mine didn't and I haven't found one yet. Do you know where to get one?

 

That is one clean looking build. Nice job, ITTOG.

 

 

Thanks. Given the board is so cool looking I wanted to do everything possible to keep things out of the way of the board. Heck, I may even get a new case with a clear side to show it off.
