Corsair H50 v.s. CoolIT ECO A.L.C. - 4. Mounting

Review: Something old, something new

 






Mounting Corsair’s H50 is in no way complicated but it does require setting up a backplate. The aforementioned Asetek cooling used push-pin retention clips for mounting on socket 775 and didn’t require a backplate, but Corsair’s way is safer. The mechanism we have today allows for simple mounting on Intel and AMD processors. The first picture below shows Intel LGA 1366/1156/775 mounting mechanism parts followed by AMD LGA AM2/AM3 parts.

Each of the listed Intel sockets requires a different backplate, but that’s not a problem for Corsair’s universal backplate (on the picture below). By placing screws in the appropriate holes, you’ll prepare the backplate for your Intel/AMD socket.

After placing the backplate, radiator and pump mounting is a breeze.

The radiator is placed on the rear panel, where 12cm fans usually go.

Corsair advises users to aim the fan to blow inside the case, but we’ll know soon enough whether it improves performance. The picture below shows the fan mounted the other way around, i.e. pushing air out of the case.
