H50 + 2600K Good?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't tell if these are temps I should be getting. First time build, still learning about water cooling. I've done a lot of research regarding air coolers and the average temps but not water cooling.

I'm currently getting a max of 67C at full load in P95. But the temps stay at around 61-64 when I look at it. I guess it peaks at 67C due to the CPU heating up from a cold start.

I have my H50 in a push/pull configuration where I used the CM fan (120mm) that came with my HAF 912 and attached it to the back of the radiator with the shiny sticker facing outward. I should be getting my CM Megaflow 200m soon and will probably put it in the front of the case since I don't think it will fit on the top grill.

What do you guys think about these temps, the Megaflow position, and the kind of fans I should look into upgrading to? I'm going to wait until I head back to RIT in September before I upgrade the fans to some more high-end pups. Until then, what can I do about my current setup to grant better temps?

You're just fine with those temps right now.

I think an h50 wouldn't really improve them much though.

I would go for an h70 or a d-14.

Ya those temps are OK. I My H50 never goes above 62c.
