Thanks for the replies. Yeah it's a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string" LMAO! if i can get a 7c drop i will be happy imho. I've disabled Turbo Core for now
as from watching Core Temp this was getting the CPU to spend more time @ 1.40v+ rather than the 1.37v it is now on the rig is now tolerable again! but i miss the Turbo to 4.2 as it really did add some "snap" to Windows and browsing so i will look to enable it as soon as possible. It's still very tempting to go H100 and "make it fit" but as i mentioned i would lose some case fans in the process.
The H50 is set to exhaust (i did try intake but it was well within the margin of error of a degree or two!) so as the intakes on this K62 are all filtered BUT this one wouldn't have been for the sake of more dust it wasn't worth it imho. If i purchase the H80 i will give the Corsair fans a go of course but unfortunately i have tinnitus (sp) and find the noise (mostly motor "whine") of some fans drives me nuts!! but the Nidec @ under 2000rpm's is almost silent BUT delivers (i would say) good CFM. It's just at high CPU loads (only IBT and similar "stress" programs) the beast winds up and is VERY loud:rolleyes:.
