Ya I would buy an h50 again in a heartbeat! my idle temps dropped 13*C to 15*C. I was really surprised.

It already was preapplied.

even if it was the cpu cooler should bring the temperatures back down quickly, e.g if i get my cpu loaded up in prime95's blend stress test, the temperatures reach the lower 50's, but the first second or so of stopping the stress test the temperature drops down 10-11*C, then after another 15-20 seconds i get back into the mid 30's, then after say 10 minutes i'm back in the lower 30's if the ambient temperature in my bedroom isnt too warm

Grrr, I guess I'll have to get a new cpu cooler soon then....
Are they expensive?

the cooler i have now is fine for the job, it blocks the first two ram slots though, but i dont mind with only having dual channel 2x2gb sticks of ddr3 lol

yeh but once its been messed with it needs to be reapplied, in other words once you remove the heatsink from the cpu after the first time of seating it, you have to clean the old paste off and put fresh stuff on lol

The H50 is around $80 CAN. Not sure what the prices are other places.

they vary in price depending on what you want to do with the cpu, overclocking versus keeping it at stock, and it also depends on where you live so you can get one from somewhere thats at least in the same country to keep the postage low and quick

add two decent fans into that price, you're going to want to get two decent 120mm fans to put onto the radiator for the h50, gentle typhoons are selling really well at the minute, and i know of someone who just bought a pair for his h50 and he tells me they're very fast and very quiet and they give him great temperatures too
