Try using some auto polish on it. Turtle Wax Color Back Finish Restorer is an excellent choice as it's good at restoring badly faded, oxidized, and/or damaged finishes. It should be available at any auto parts outlet or big box superstores with an auto department.

I use Goof Off spray

and then go back over that with Castrol Super Clean

and then go to further with dawn and water Ratio 1tsp to the rest of the bottle water to break the two before.

Also like Papa Smurf says.. you can Clean the paint and restore the finish.
I like this product ..Meguiar's Deep Crystal System Paint Cleaner

That's with 2 intakes on the front and the h70 as the only exhaust. I am currently in the midst of a case overhaul (got laser cutter certified yesterday morning...) which means some fans aren't in/on.
That H 70 reminds me of the Old Datsun 260 Z.. The radiator was just a dual core stock. But they came out with the QUAD Core and everybody started buying them because it kept the engine so much cooler.. We also used push pull electric fans to cool it down while in heavy traffic and racing, especially using Air conditioning in Summer.



That H70 is a Fat Radiator. with the pull behind it barely missing the cpu unit.. I would suggest those who are using the H 70 to actually mount the Radiator on the outside back of the case..

Just a little clarification for size since the perspective is a bit off on the picture. The front-most fan on the H70 lines up with the left side of the cpu block and there is enough room to reach my hand completely between the radiator and the mobo, even more so with the low profile.

Why would you recommend the radiator being on the outside back? I checked for dead air between the mobo and radiator and with the top fan going it is still moving back there. Just curious. I can see for aesthetics and to save space but not so much for performance.

I gotta throw my two cents in on this H70 debate. After owning the H50 for some time and spending a lot of time researching the H70, I feel the best way to mount the rad is to use the same technique I used for my H50. Mount the rad against the inside of the case and the pull fan outside the rear. This will keep the push/pull intact and free up some room inside the case. We're not dealing with a full tower case here and many of us modders believe the best mods are the ones that are impossible to tell factory made from modified.

Yes.. that is the Ticket.. I was thinking dead air and aesthetics, but My man Rockr69 knows his stuff. If he says that works you can bank on it..

Yep, it can't do DX11. That doesn't make it weaker though. Is a Matrox 4 Head card "weaker" because it doesn't do DX? Think not, just watch it perform 3D in Photoshop, Corel Paint or other editor. So, it may be lesser right now but it's way more powerfull than a gtx 450.

Ok, yeah, two SSD's in Raid 0 are faster, how much depends on the chips, controller, you know. It Depends.
I took mine out of Raid 0 because.... You can't really back them up, if you Clone them, back them up as a set or do anything other than "Back up my Data" & one quits (I've had 2 quit, I'm tough on hardware), then your backup has to go back on a Raid 0 configuration.
......Sure they were wicked fast, have the benchies here somewhere but I much prefer to have my system boot a few seconds (maybe 8) slower & have my games load fast then have that tiny amount back.
......Trim support. So far it doesn't work in Raid 0.
...... When they do break, if you have something like Intel Intelligent Storage Matrix running the show, they (tech support) just have you tell the program to read it as "normal".
.....8 seconds just isn't worth it. I still boot faster than any computer around me.

I agree totally. I re-finished my VW bus this way, it was shiny clean...... Until the flood of '97 hit. I miss my bus.

Oh yeah.
Hi Everybody!!
We are moved! Well, kinda, you know how long it takes to unpack things. We now have gas, hot water, a brand new range, washer - dryer is in, a nice place to sleep, a place for my computer (Mindy's Scout is next), almost have food to eat, no breakfasts, most importantly I'll have time off!
Mindy getting the Shingles was the last straw, I couldn't stand her being sick & it taking me 20minutes to get to her. I'm in the office & sitting at my desk. Messy though it may be! So, I'll be popping in more often & maybe I can keep up this time.

Thanks

So those temps are nice, what is your vcore? Are you overclocking?

Do you mean that you are working in a machine shop and you now can start using a laser?
