Replacement for H50

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclock.net

I am currently a bit a little disappointed with my current H50 cooler in my system after I changed cabinet.
My specs are as follows:

MB: Asus M4A785-M
CPU: Phenom II x6 1055T@3.5 GHZ
RAM: Kingston HyperX DDR2 RAM x2 2x2 (1066 MHz CL5)
GFX: Gigabyte 580 SOC
HDD: Samsung F1 - 750GB
PSU: NorthQ Black Magic 650W

Case: In-Win Dragon Slayer

All of my fans in the cabinet has been replaced with Noctua fans instead of the original + a fitted a 220 MM fan on the side of the cabinet.
But my cpu under 100% load in 4hours can reach 59 degreeswhile the motherboard maximum reaches 40 degrees.

I think 59 degrees sounds like a lot for a water cooling solution?
The radiator is fastened at the top with a 120mm out there is no room for another fan, because of the motherboard.
Would it be better if I changed to another cooler like http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/...er::16559.html

Instead of the H50?

Thank you.
Danny

59 degrees is right in the ballpark for a CLOSED loop water system. I would say that 59 deg would be borderline hot with a custom loop water cooling system, but defiantly not with a H50.

If you change to the top end air (Silver Arrow, NH-D14, cnps9900 max), you will only see a temperature 5-7deg less at 100% at load, if that.

I also think it's a bit much and like u said, it's a closed system. Which is odd.
In my other case it was like 33 degress tops, that is why I was thinkin about change to an air cooler, so it could lower my temp on the cpu but also move alot of air out of my case.

Here's a picture btw:

60c is normal, 65c you need to watch out, plus h50 is not exactly as good as water cooling, it is hydro cooling and is made better and compact than most air cooler out there, saves space for small cases while still can cool quite effective, but it is not considered water cooling.

Your max cpu temp is 44C..

Yea, on each core, but the 6 cores itself is 60 degress. (TMPIN0 in HWmonitor)

TMPIN0 is not always the socket, it depends on your mobo. You are probably looking at your VRM's.

Even if 50C was the socket temp, your cores are 44C, so its really a moot point.

i got my 1090T stable at 4.1ghz with my h50. I'm from the philippines so it's pretty humid here but my temps are good. what fans are you using? is it push/pull? did you install the cooler correctly? you might need to reapply tim
