h60 temps high

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi i just installed an h60 cooler into my i5 2500k. I have only OC'd to 4.2 ghz yet the idle temps are around 48-51c and its around 65ish on load. I have no clue what i am doing wrong here. I thought the temps would supposed be down to the low 30s. I even installed 2 fans for a push pull and the temps are still idling around those temperatures. is this normal or did i seat or do something wrong here.

Btw My specs are

Corsair 500r White Case
I5 2500k @ 4.2ghz
8gb ddr3 1600 ram
crucial m4 256 gb
150 gb velociraptor
1 tb black
Seasonic x750 psu

You can try re seating the cooler. You'll need new thermal paste. What's your vcore for 4.2ghz?

welcome to the reality of "not so good" all in one (aio) liquid coolers. While I personally don't have any rock solid data to show you, They aren't the magic bullet you would think they are. Unless you get one of the dual ran or thick radiator models accept it as a mulligan and move on. I have.

I recently installed a coolermaster hyper 212 evo on an i5 750 and get idle temps 5-10c lower than my i7 950 on an H50 push/pull.

Thanks for the input guys, hopefully checking the cooler installation will fix the issue. I still have some spare artic silver from the huge mofo scythe mugen/ninja cooler days. I just recently got a few scythe gentle typhoons, so I'm gonna put those suckers in once I have the time to re-seat the cooler this weekend and see what happens.

U are comparing apple with oranges. The i7 950 is the 1366 architecture while the i5 750 is the 1156 architecture. Thats not a good comparison. U should try the H60 on ur i5 750 and see what temps u get. Then u can compare it with ur current temps.

And afaik the 1156 runs cooler then the 1366 due to die shrink and optimizations.
