PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING



Our testbed for the Corsair H50 will consist of the following hardware:

  • DFI P35-T2RL Blood-Iron Motherboard

  • Intel Q6600 Kentsfield Core2Quad CPU

  • Western Digital WD800 hard drive

  • Western Digital WD6400 hard drive

  • Samsung SH-S203N DVD writer

  • Buffalo Firestix DDR2 RAM (2 X 1GB)

  • EVGA 8800 GTS 640MB graphics card

  • Thermaltake Toughpower 750W PSU


We'll test it in the open case pictured above. Keep in mind that temps inside your case will be different, depending on the chassis and airflow.



After choosing the mounting holes that correspond to the platform at hand, the brass bolts can be secured to the bracket and the self-adhesive rubber washers applied. After removing the plastic from the base and applying some AS5 to the processor heat spreader, we can put the cooler on the board.



Again, since the screws come in from the back, we'll need access to the backside of the motherboard. If, like the mule case here, there is a cutout in the appropriate area of the motherboard tray, you're golden. If not, you'll have to remove the board. Following the directions supplied by Evercool, the screws are tightened in several passes in a cross pattern until they bottom. No backplate is provided and with the light weight and low profile of the HPK, none is needed.
