That happens a lot with molex connections, so yeah, just push it im with the finger and thats fine, nothing to worry about.

Very nice temps btw

Okay, so I tried medium settings and it temps sat around 31-32, so a 3-4C drop, not too shabby.

But what's funny/odd is I went ahead and tried the high setting and temps didn't improve, if anything they got a wee bit worse. Temps are now sitting at 32-33...
And not to mention the fans sounds much louder. I think I'll probably keep it low or medium, haha.

For me the only setting that i cant hear is the low one. Medium and high seem to be too loud for me, so unless im stressing the CPU i have decided to keep it in low.

High is like having my old gtx 480 sli back at 100% fan speed.

Yeah that's true, I didn't notice the noise of the medium setting with my room fan going, haha.

I'm keeping it at low, because in the end I only got this cooler so that I wouldn't have to listen to my stock HSF blare at 5600 RPM while my CPU runs Folding@Home, haha.

And I'm definitely happy with the results that I got, I guess I can OC now too, I wonder what's stable for my CPU with water cooling...hm.

yeah, my cpu is getting grat temps and i just applied the Arctic silver today and it takes 200 hours to really settle and get the temps even lower, so im incredibly happy.

Whenever I'm asked how difficult it is to build a new rig, I tend to say it's like building a Lego model. It seems that even some reputable manufacturers are taking that anology to unnecessary extremes.

Right now I'm trying to decide which I want more: the lower profile of the H60, or the improved cooling & CLD features of the H80. The deciding factor will probably be a combination of cost and whether or not the H80 will fit in either the rear or top fan slots of my Aito C1901 case without me having to remove the 240mm side fan.

That's pretty common with molex connections, and is no real cause for concern. Just make sure that any unused molex' aren't trying to grind their innards against other components or the case chassis. If they seem particularly loose, it may be worth putting them in a small plastic and/or cloth pouch, just to keep them organised and away from other conductive objects and surfaces.

A 15C decrease in both idle & load. I'm happy, I was only expected only like 10C on lowest setting!
Nice improvement! Especially since your main purpose was to remove the jet engine from your case.

Let us know how the overclocking goes.

I managed to keep my cable management semi-intact. I had my molex plugs in a really obscure place (where the 2.5" HDD/SSD slots are on the HAF 912 >_< ), because I didn't think I'd ever use 'em. I placed 'em in the back and connected the molex, which was really cheap mind you! When I connected the molex one of the pins came out of the back! I'm not sure if this is normal of molex's, but I had to push it back in with my finger, and thankfully it is working.

One last thing that wasn't ideal was the screws for mounting. I'm mounting on an AMD and I wasn't sure how tight the screws were supposed to go in, so I must've tightened/untightened at least 3-4 times before I thought I found a good strength where it would hold but wouldn't snap.

As for the the fan that got kicked out to replace the radiator/2 fans, I mounted it at the top as exhuast, as that's the only exhaust in the case now. And I'll also mention that there isn't room to mount a 200mm on the top of my HAF 912 anymore, I can only mount one 120mm (most likely 140mm as well).

Now for the good!

Here are my temps (and note I haven't OC'd yet):

Stock HSF:
Idle - 30C
Load - 50C

H80 on low:
Idle - 15C
Load - 35C

A 15C decrease in both idle & load. I'm happy, I was only expected only like 10C on lowest setting!

I'll go to medium and see what kinda results I get.

Not sure about high, the reason I got this was so I could have a quieter cooler compared to my HSF. Low/medium seem to have reasonable sound levels.
15*c? are you sure?

because if thats true you would have to live in like an igloo because the law of psychs says you can't make something cooler then its ambient temps unless your pouring LN or something on the rad.

Yep, that's what it was when I first booted:

And here is a pic of my current Core Temp temperatures:


As you can see the lowest was at 14C at one point. Right now it's at load (Folding@Home).

EDIT: I shut F@H off and waited a little bit and temps normalized to this now:


And this does make more sense, and follows those darn laws of physics!
