Generally the H50s work better when they are blowing air out of the case although this is contrary to the installation instructions. It also helps by reducing the temeperature in the case by not blowing warm air in.

Well it is a catch 22 situation. If the ambient is coolar then H50 should suck and vice versa. I did try blowing out by reversing the fans. CPU got a degree warmer. Hence switched back to defaults. As said elsewhere avg temparature here in India hovers around 30 give or take 5 deg during season change. In winter the avg. minimum is around 15-20 deg while is summer it is 30-35 deg  >:(. Also I live near coast the humidity levels are high around 95 R/H especially during monsoon though temparatures are around 25-28 deg C.

Well I guess you have found the best solution. Being in India the Ambient temps are much higher than we experience in the UK and, as a result, your PC components will run warmer than here but the figures you posted previously were perfectly acceptable.

Of course, another option would be to up roots and move to the North Pole!  ;D

Good idea but it's not as much fun as avoiding the Polar Bears!

You say that in jest but there are enthusiasts who do more or less that. See here:

I feel that is taking things a little too far.  :P

Me too! But you have to admire the ingenuity of some enthusiasts(and deep pockets). That equiptment doesn't come cheap and then  you have all the problems associated with below ambient cooling  8)

Looking at the link I feel Polar bears is a cheaper option except I ensure that I dont smell like fish  ;D

Well there is always the South Pole. You only really have to deal with killer penguins there! And they LOVE fish!!!  ;D

Ambient - India,Summer 30-35 deg C,Winter 15-20 Deg C, Overall avg 26-33 deg C

With AMD stock coolar
CPU - 42-46 deg C
GPU - ~ 55 deg C
MB - ~ 40-45 deg C
HDD - ~ 40 deg C  

After installing H50
CPU - 35-38 deg C

HDD - 30-32 deg C
With A/C running set at 25 deg the above temparatures drop by 1-2 deg C

Is there anything I can do to lower temparatures
