Corsair H50 - (Beat to Death, I know) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well, I think I found the issue! When I pulled off the heatsink, which was simply loosening the mount, turning the pump a bit, and then pulling it right out, There was -no- paste residue on the bottom of the pump on the copper plate. Apparently I had spread the paste WAY too thin with my card. Haha.

I dropped 2 rice sized dots on the center of the CPU, reseated the pump, logged in to see that my 39*c idle had dropped to 30*c. ^^ I'm a happy camper now.

Now I read some reviews on how to get this bad boy to 3.5!

The 9850 ran hot even before it was overclocked, and the 955 isnt known for beeing a cool processor either.
The lower end corsair closed loops have never been all THAT effective compared to a air cooling that costs half as much as they do.
Dont expect too much from any of them, but especially not the H50/60/70.

I have an H70 and H100 and found that when installing them for the 2nd time with my own thermal paste that I had to put it on really thick spread just like when it is new to get good temps. Just think about how the stock paste was on it when it was new and emulate that.
