Hi, I bought H50 and I was wondering if I should use the pre-applied thermal paste (i heard it's shin etsu or something like that) or the Artic Silver 5 which i have.


or which is better?

I can only answer that 1st part for myself. Nope I didn't use the default TIM. That's because I lapped my H50 though to match my lapped 955 BE C3.

It is better in that it is the same stuff that edges out AS5. Which is Shin-Etsu G751. However... if you leave it in stock form AS5 is better. The reasons should be clear but I'll explain... the stock TIM is pretty thick and covers the entire working surface of the cooler. When you apply TIM yourself you'll probably only apply a half a grain of rice allowing the TIM to spread more evenly and thinner. Therefore AS5 would be better than stock.

Start back @ OP for this information. There is a Google.doc list that has the CFM rating of every fan that has been mated to the H50 Rad. In my case I use Red LED Yate Loon High Speed Silents' that have a cfm rating of 88cfm and a 48.5 dB level. They can be pretty loud but I can live with a louder set of fans over a hot system.

If you're penny pinching though I would get 2 of the Yate Loons' from performance-pcs.com. $4 each when you leave the sleeving off. So for the price of ONE fan you get two once you throw shipping in. You can get them in stock black, Red, Green and Blue flavors. I don't even have Cathode tubes in my system cause these things are pretty bright.

Also, when I purchase one of these I was thinking about going with a Gentle Typhoon fan replacement. What speed would you recommend(feel free to link), and do you think the stock fan would be sufficient for the pull? Trying to penny pinch by only purchasing one, I would think the push fan makes the most difference.
P.S. You new guys should go to OP to add yourselves to the list. It's a Google.doc list.

too much for me to read, can someone tell me which mod is the best?
post #10195 of 28303
would anyone recommend this over an original TRUE? my temperatures are kinda borked on my i7 860. I have it running at 4.2 @ 1.33v and it easily hits 90c on regular loads and tjunction when benching, idles at 50c.
the fan im using is a scythe 2000 rpm @ 110 cfm :<

Seems to me on reviews a True is better(ofcourse I haven't seen a comparison with the original True).... but 1 question are you using push/pull (2 fans) on your true? Also how is the airflow in your case?

forgot to add... if you have dust inside your case... clean it - And I would suggest to do a re-seat and apply some new Thermal paste on it.

Depends on personal preference. Read the thread, that's why it is here.

i tried a push pull, i didnt see any difference
its a new build, so no dust problems
airflow is good, its a thermaltake armor
i reseated it a couple of times, no change

There is something wrong if you're idling at 50c and hitting 90c under load. Either the heatsink is flawed and not seating properly, or the thermal compound is either crap or not applied properly, or you don't have optimal airflow pathes in that case. Either way, something isn't right there. Is 1.33v a lot compared to the oem voltage of that CPU? If you're running an overclock, maybe you should downclock it...

Edit : In your User CP, click add/edit your system. This way you can have all your specs in your sig, which helps us help you.

Would be more helpful if your you had your rig added in your User CP system.

Personally, I think this H50 is better than most AC heatsink setups. Not all but most.

I can't specifically state what you'd get for temps since I'm running AMD and you're Intel. But my temps are running 34c minimum at the moment. I got it up to 42c last night under load. And that's both surfaces being lapped and running a single fan in exhaust. I doubt that I would have much better temps if I were to run intake. But I do plan to add a gutted fan as a shroud and a Pusher fan on the bottom of it. So I think I'll probably see 29c-31c as a result of my work. Not bad for a 1st time lappdog.
