Hi, I registered for these forums since I just built my first PC and I'm currently trying to get the best overclock possible out of my X3 720.

Currently I am running three cores at 3.4GHz (by changing the multiplier to 17x) with a vcore of 1.408, and everything else is at the factory settings. When its loaded the cpu is 50c hot, and the clock speed seems a little low to be that hot when loaded. I am currently using a 790GX motherboard chip set and a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 cooler. I took the temperature of the room that the CPU is in and its currently around 29 degrees Celsius. Could that we what is stopping me from running the CPU any higher? I was able to run the processor at 3.6GHz at 1.5 vcore but my processor got past 55c so I stopped it.

Also, does anybody know how hot the mobo should be when loaded for the 790x chipset? After running about an hour of prime 95 I get the mobo temps 45, 70, and 54 according HW Monitor.

29C room temp is kind of warm like my room is around 30C too... 50C is not bad but if you wanted to go higher you would need to get your temp lower. Maybe add some fan and use better Tim.. I would advice you to change the factory fan on your S1283 with a better one like the Cooler Master R4 ( it dropped me 2-3C ) then put another fan on the other side of the heatsink after you mount it. You can use the zip tie to tie it, a push/pull mod would lower your current temp 3-4C. Remember: change the tim and the xiggy fan then add another one. My mobo 770's temp was @ 40 after 8hrs of prime95.

Anyway, i'm going offline now. Time to install the new cooler .

I took out my mobo today and removed the S1283. With the mobo removed I definitely got a better look at the placement of the CPU/heatsink and noticed something odd, regardless of how I place the heatsink it leaves about 1mm of the CPU bare on either side. I quadruple checked the alignment of it and the S1283's base is definitely 1mm or so smaller than the CPU. (and yes, I'm talking about the surface you put TIM on and not the green PCB board underneath) I could place the heatsink directly in the middle but that would result in the CPU being bare by about .5MM on each end. Is it supposed to be like this?

Update: It's finally solved! It turned out it was me using TIM improperly for a HDT cooler and just being lazy. There's a sticker on S1283's that leave a residue and I got lazy about cleaning all of it up so it formed a sticky, nasty looking mixture which acted as insulation. My load temps dropped 18c after fixing this from 61c load to 43c.

I only have 1 word for the H50: Wonderful despite many people doesn't like it as it isn't really a true water cooling. My idle temp dropped 3C from the S1283, and load temp dropped almost 6C. I will post some pics and more details soon. I have to eat now .

Cores 0, 1, and 3 failed Prime95 blend within 4 hrs. Core 2 was happily crunching away after 10 hrs.

Bumped voltage to 1.45, will test some more.

Unfortunately i couldn't find my MX-2 so i had to go with the pre-applied TIM on my H50. However the temp are still lower than the old Xiggy S1283. I'm using Push/Pull with my H50, 2 fans are the Corsair + CM R4.
Here are the temps for x4 @ 3.6 1.42V after few hrs of prime95:
S1283:
Ambient 30C
Idle: 37-38C
Max: 53C (peaked 54-55C).
H50:
Ambient 30C
Idle: 34-35C
Max: 48C (peak 49C).

Overall i'm very happy with the H50 atm. If you're using the Smilodon case, you won't be able to use the 2 side fans because the push/pull mod is too big. I had to mount my top side fan outside as an exhaust fan.

By the looks of your photos the H50 is pulling air into your case. Have your case temps changed at all how is that working out overall. Is the fan that came installed on the unit removable and replaceable. Just curious, did you look at the Coolit domino. I am trying to decide between one of these for my rig. The Corsair just looks like its built better.

I advise you read this (LINK) Review, it compares the two in quite a few areas, forget the AMD temps though, they are just rubbish, the case they were using was getting upto 45'c.

I would think that adding new thermal paste would further improve temp 3-4'c.

The H50 does cool better than the Domino and is the domino is more expensive.

Im VERY tempted to get one now.

@Ocnewb, It looked like one of the pipe's were kinked in one of the photo's, you got to watch out for that.
