I've had several i7 920s and even the best among them couldn't get to 4GHz on the stock cooler.

Yeah that site doesn't look right.
Their probably running in like 5degree ambient temps tongue.gif

@mak1skav I recently cleaned out my rad and installed the scythe fans, My temps used to be about 5-7degrees hotter on load.

Really looking into the XSPC Rasa 240 kit. Been getting some info on installing it etc. It seems safe but I want to see how the H100 performs on a trusted review site.

extremely disappointing results especially since the H100 is only meant to be 2c cooler

my current 920 @ 4.2 @ 1.24v maxes out on prime at around 81c with my Megahalems and 1x GT AP-15

was looking to update to the H100 but if its only 2c better i think ill save the cash and maybe just get a 2nd AP-15 for my Megahalems

Our tests were done internally with a controlled 25C ambient temp.

As I pointed out to the OP earlier, comparing your temps to other temps you see online really isn't viable for a few reasons.

1) Different ambient temps in the house/lab/etc.
2) Temp sensors are insanely inaccurate and cheap - a swing of 3-5C is completely reasonable when you aren't using the identical motherboard and chip (not the same model - the ACTUAL board/chip combo. Example - I killed a Rampage III in the lab, so we replaced it. All our temps were suddenly 4C hotter. No other hardware had changed.)
3) Different cases, airflow designs, internal ambient temps and airflow vary wildly and affect overall performance.

So while you can use them to gauge temps, saying "Wow, that cooler's awesome, it's 2C better than mine!" isn't really any good unless the review you're reading actually tests your cooler and the other cooler in the same exact test on the same exact hardware with the same ambient temps.

going through different reviews they swap places so you wouldn't lose which ever 1 you have

Going to wait for some official reviews on the H100. If it's not noticeably better then the H50 in push/pull then I'm going to go for the RASA 240 kit. Went through some install videos etc and it seems to be relatively safe and simple. Afaik if you use distilled water and silver killcoil you won't need to refill/clean the loop for 6-12months. Seen the reviews on the system and it seems to be 10-15degrees cooler then the top air units which is great for the price of only $129.

What temperature improvement should I expect going from a Thermaltake FrÃ*o to a Corsair H80? Both stock fans at max speed.

As long as I get a +3ºC improvement that's great to me, I have an H80 coming home this week, might also add x2 Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM into them which makes it even better of an improvement over my FrÃ*o.

Well I've never had a frio but I can tell you that the H80 performs about the same as an NH-D14.

When you get the H80, do try out those GTs and let us know how they perform.

I had an NH-D14 and It was like 4-5ºC better than the Frío I currently have, that's awesome considering we're talking about stock fans. biggrin.gif
