    I would get a better fan for it mate.

    But it totally depends on which one you got as its a bit of a lottery with all in one coolers.


    I had one when they first came out and it was noisy and not great at cooling, i've used plenty of Eco's and other H50's and found that its luck if you get a good one.

    Fingers crossed.

      quiter than a H70, slightly louder than a H60.

      Good bang for buck and as El Wayneo says if you change the fan great cooler.

            The 2500T is a low power model right ? so should be putting out less heat than normal so hopefully you can turn down the fan speed via the bios anyway so long as you plug the H50 fan into the cpu fan header

              H50 comes with a "ok" fan better than the crap you get on most cases but not the best fan by a long shot there are plenty of decent fans from 7+ these days you can add for better results and in most cases a Push-Pull config makes the H50 as good as most O2 coolers.

              The Corsair H range do have a weird thing of the supplied paste is normally better than just about anything else you try which means you need to try and mount it only once.

                The fan on my H50 is the loudest thing in my case :/

                  I've got the Aria version of the H60 and the fan that it came with was ridiculously noisy. It was really the only thing on the whole system that Aria built for me that I could say I was disappointed in.

                  I have since changed the fan to a Noctua one, but even that is bloody noisy.

                    The fan that came with my H50 is quite quiet, I did however replace it with 2 slower Xilence Red Wing fans in a Push/Pull configuration. Quiter & lower temps to boot.

                      Is a push/pull configuration better for temps? My cooler just has a Noctua fan that expels the air but even after spending 15 on that I'm not really happy.

                      The temps I can live with but I'm a real stickler for noise. I've got the Fractal R3 case and the top fan is very quiet, it's just that one at the rear that sounds like a jet engine.

                        Corsair reckon you should be reversing it for best performance mate, have it pulling cool air in from the outside.
                        What that does for the rest of your sys temps is another issue entirely..

                        Push / pull will always give better results too, simply because it will move more air

                          The Corsair fan is pretty loud at full speed in my opinion. If you care about noise, I would swap it for either a quieter fan (with similar performance-important!) or a push-pull setup of two slightly quiter and lesser performing fans, which should give overall slightly better performance. Hope that makes sense. As for fan recommendations, it's a question of budget.

                            If it is something that will get rid of the cyclone next to me, then I would pay within reason whatever was needed. I did already swap the fan that came with it for a quieter one, but it wasn't actually any quieter!

                            Thanks
