Too much pressure on mount of H70?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would like to know if high amount of pressure would cause issues with temp?

I installed my h70 with mounting backplate and screws from a noctua u9b se2air cooler to get into my computer...

For all intents and purposes the computer runs fine..

Cpu temp under idle is 31-32 c and under 100% load jumps to 62 - 63c
I have a moderate OC of 3.6ghz currently

Using an air cooler I never saw a 30 degree jump like that... cpu stayed cool at 32-34c idle and hit 57c under 100% load

I did install unit in push/pull venting out rear of case with a 140mm fan pushing air inside case mounted on side panel in line with h70
and another 140mm directly below it pushing air into case as well.

My pc currently sits in a xigmatek asgard ii b/b case x2 140mm on side panel x1 140mm on front panel pushing air into case.

Then the h70 w/ x2 140 mm fans push/pull venting out

edit: absolutely correct... the fans ARE 120mm don't know what I was thinking when I posted this... Too little sleep will do that to you I guess.

should my temps jump like that?

1. Your temperatures are fine
2. i'm not sure what you mean by "140mm push/pull venting out" as the H70 only uses 120mm fans...
3. I'm not sure how a cooler having tighter contact with a chip would make for higher temperatures?
4. an H70 is comparable to a high end 120mm setup, it doesn't mean that you're going to have better temperatures than a 120mm push/pull tower style cooler.

Higher clamping pressure should make it better.
Also how is the pump hooked up, I found with my antec 620 (basically the same) it ran a lot better off a moxle to fan header adapter then off the mother board.

If your H70 is anything like my 620 and my mates h50 then its worth while lapping it since it is quite lumpy on the bottom.

I experienced a 5C drop by swapping thermal paste.. I think the coolers always have way too much paste on them

So, Original owner sent me backplate for cooler... after a little bit of shopping around town I found a machine screw to match the three that made it with h70.
Re-mounted with AS Ceramique, after a couple runs of BurnIn w/ max heat setting ticked, Load temp dropped to 50c with an average of 42c, same OC settings.
All in all I am extremely happy with these results.
