Ahhh, okay wasn't clear before. Thanks for clearing up that discrepancy.

In any case, I've noticed that the Intels run hotter. 42c seems to be a favored temp it seems. And if you're getting low 50s' OC'd then I think that you're okay.

this is my firts post on these forums so bare with me if the quetions have been answered previously

Im using a H50 cooler inside a Corsair 800D case, my setup below:

1x 120mm CM Excalibur in the front as intake (Scythe Kama Bay)
3x 120mm Noctua in the top as exhaust
1 x 140mm Corsair in the bottom as intake.
2 x 120mm CM Excalibur in push/pull as exhaust in the rear.

Im using a i7 930, 20x205 (4100Mhz) with 1,3875v.

My idle temps are 48c and under LINX heavy load 83c, ambient temp during this is 22c.

The H50 is mounted with the hoses at the TOP.

Now to my questions.

1. Are my temps OK based on my setup?
2. Should i reseat the cooler?
3. Would rotating the radiator so hoses are DOWN help?

Im so close on ordering a full EK WC setup since im not that satisifed with my H50, so any suggestions is appreciated

Are you using the stock TIM or did you use a 3rd party thermal paste? if so, which one?..... test other fans for push/pull... Try re-seating.... I've read... hoses down helps a bit(or maybe its the other way around *up lol can't remember), read also having the corsair logo of the pump upside down helps too... another idea... try lapping the H50 & the cpu .... if any of these things don't help... then go for full WC then.

Forgot another idea, try placing the H50 somewhere else in your case.... experimenting is the best way to find out where it works better for you.... also go to "User CP" and click "Edit System" add your computer details in there - that would be great for people to help you out much easier, to see what is your entire computer set up

Thanks. Was hoping for something a bit more secure though.

I have the same thing going on.. CPU idles at 48c but never goes over 75c under LinX. I've reseated properly and applied AS5 dropped went down to 46c idle. Rad is mounted to the rear exhaust at the moment and I plan on trying a push/pull with the same fans.
post #10217 of 28306
so, do you have the hoses at the top or bottom of the radiator?

Hey guys, thinking about getting the H50 as it wont take up much room in my case.

However quick question: Does this act as a CPU cooler aswell as the case fan? Or does it take up a fan space and use it as a CPU cooler only?

Thanks!

can be both can be just cpu cooler, depends on placement.... if its mounted to the backside of a drive bad its just a cpu cooler, otherwise its usually a case fan too

first off, that is a lot of vcore for 4 ghz OC. try using the 19x or 21x multiplier, since odd multipliers usually require less vcore than even multipliers to get stable.

2nd, ur idle temps are pretty high, and ur load temps are fantastic for that voltage. with my h50, i hit 84C @ 1.328 vcore on linx.

Now answering your questions:
1.your idle temps are pretty high, should be around 42-43 at that ambient. but ur load temps look good.
2. i think ur heatsink is reseated correctly or ur temps would go even higher on linx.
3. from other people, i have heard that either way doesnt affect the cooling performance of the h50 so my answer is no.
