I doubt that its that much higher considering that they're spinning so much more slowly.

GTs are popular mostly due to their noise to airflow ratio.

Its hard to overcome such a difference in fan speed. Look at some of the testing on Martin's liquid lab. Raw fan speed tends to make more of a difference than what actual fan that you use. Like I said the biggest differences are in noise.

Sounds good thanks so much. I know that 60 under Prime95 load isn't extreme but I am sure bumping my CPU to 4.5GHz will make it go from about 60 to 70 or maybe even more under load. I've never overclocked before.

As long as you can keep CPUs under 80 under load, your pretty safe. Having said that, the lower, the better.

You may consider changing your TIM (paste) over next time you re-seat, to something like an MX4 or similar. AS4 is venerable but it is considered old now.

I won't be re seating again since I just re installed the CPU with the new Asus board that I got Saturday. I can always change the paste though. I am getting the new Intel chip and a new motherboard again when they come out in April. I switch the fans around and after 5 minutes or so of running Prime it's at 58% so it doesn't seem like it made a difference. One weird thing that happened though was when I turned the computer back on I didn't even get my monitors coming on, it rebooted by itself after about 10 seconds and then it was fine. What is the difference between the thermal paste that I have and the MX4? I may get it if it will make a difference.

Probably about 5 years of R&D research. smile.gif

Seriously, the newer pastes are reporting better temps and no cure time. Again, AS5 still has a big following on this forum.

GELID GC Extreme Thermal Compound is also a new up-and-comer

Guess I will order some and give it a shot, should only take 5 minutes or so. Do you like the pea method or spreading it across the CPU in a square?

Personally I am a spreader. Guitar picks work well in a pinch. I have also had good results with the MX4.

You have some good fans. I use AP14's and AP15's on my rig. Honestly fans (1850 RPM/ 2000 RPM / 58-60 CFM) won't make a huge difference in temps unless you go to some really noisy deltas or something like the BG Blasters (100+ CFM).

I'm a fan of big and slow. Big rads and slow quiet fans with high static pressure. Your limiter right now is most likely the H70. If you want to stick with that setup, You might need to invest in some bigger CFM fans if you want much better temps.

If you want to keep your rig quiet, I'd stick with the GTs and look at another rad. thumb.gif

PS: Intake will get you better temps than exhaust in all my testing. You want the coolest air possible hitting the rad.

Would a good improvement be an H80? Or something like a Hyper 212?

Looks like corsair has some new kits if you are into closed loops.

I'm a do it yourselfer. Prefer to hand select the parts like when you build your own PC.

Long term a hand built loop is more expensive, but more flexible where performance is concerned.
