Ok, so I'm having a possible problem with my new build.

My CPU @ idle and stock clocks, is running at about 38c and that is with the C1E support and CaQ turned on in BIOS. I pulled the H50, re-cleaned it and the CPU heat spreader, re-applied the Zalman rev1 compound this time adding just a little more than I did before since it was a super thin layer, then installed the H50 in such a way that when it was turned/locked it didn't make contact with the CPU until mounted down.

Some google searching turned up quite a few people with the c2 and c3 965 Black Editions having the same idle temp on water and air...I don't understand, the H50 is water so in theory it should keep the CPU cooler as long as the ambient temp is below 38c, right?

Anyways...what can I do about this, or is it considered normal? My radiator is in the 5.25" bay with an R4 pushing air, so even though the rad is being cooled with fresh air it is blowing through the rad and across my RAM and CPU before being exhausted. Maybe I should mount the rad in the back of the case?

Under 100% load my CPU temp maxes out at 52c. Currently, with firefox / teamspeak / steam / everest / bfbc2 running, it is at a steady 48c. This H50 doesn't seem to be maintaining a lower idle temp and lower load temp compared to the one I had on my overclocked E8400 rev2 build. Maybe I have a defective cooler?

the H50 is on par with the top end air coolers. the numbers you are getting are just about right.

their are a couple limiting factors of the H50 that hold the H50 back. like the small radiator

i wouldn't worry about it too much but if you are you can head over to the water cooling section here and post your question in the H50 owners group thread and see what they say

On the high end your temp is quite good, however your idle temp sucks, but you know this already. To answer your question, yes mount the rad to the back as exhaust. The way I have mine is as follows; using hard drive mounting screws I mounted the rad directly to the case from the outside. Then using the Corsair mounting screws I mounted the fan to the rad as a pusher. With my PII X2 550 unlocked to four cores and OCd to 3.8 I'm idling @ 27c with an ambient temp of 19c.

I should have ordered from him when I sleeve my current PSU, but wanted something that would arrive quicker. I bought the TechFlex PET in bulk instead. It doesn't look bad, but not as good as the MDPC-X stuff. How long did you have to wait to get your kit?

What I'm wondering is what brand he is reselling in his kits. It looks very similar to the TechFlex CleanCut or some of their other multifilament braids.
