Hello,

I installed my H50 to a Phenom II x4 965 BE last night. I was following the instructions provided in the box and now fear I may have smudged too much of the included paste (didn't realize you could cause "hot spots"). I only later learned the trick of pulling up on the bracket and then locking it into place after reading portions of this thread.

Should I reseat this device and buy new paste....based on the following information:

Case: HAF 922 (no push/pull as of yet) 1 exhaust on top.

Room temp: 74

CPU OC to 3.9 at 1.45v (205x19)

Idle: 34-36

100% Load (Prime95): 56 degrees (30 mins)-61 degrees (30 mins-2 hours)

It would be really ideal to establish a baseline of other 965 + H50 users with a similar OC to know what their temps are...but,...any help would be appreciated!

My temps were about the same as yours when I was at 4.0GHz / 1.450v. You could re-seat the H50 if you really wanted to, but I don't think your temps will drop much, if at all. You're good where you are at.

Thank you for the quick response. I am adding a second fan to the radiator tonight for push/pull. Was your 4.0 @ 1.45 pretty stable? I couldnt seem to get that high.

Also, have you messed around with those RAM timings much? I have the same kit...I can only get 7-8-7-18 @ 1.65 but I have seen plenty of people get 7-7-7-15 @1.65

Get a second fan and a pair of shrouds if they will fit and you will see your temp drop. alot of people like the Yate Loons they have good pressure and "can" be quite.... also fairly cheap, but well made.

I passed Orthos, Intel Burn Test and Prime95 Small FFTs without any issues. When I tried to run Prime95 Blend Test, it kept failing due to what I think was either a memory issue or a NB issue. I haven't tweaked my settings anymore to figure it out, will probably try again later today.

Also, at the top of the forum click "User CP" and on the left panel of the User CP page you will see something like "add system". Click that, fill it out and save it. This will put your system specs in your sig, makes it easier for people to help you on here.

As for my RAM, I went to 1333MHz @ 6-6-6-18 @ 1.50v in an attempt to stabilize that overclock. At this time I still do not know if it was my RAM causing the instability or not, I just assume it was because I can pass Prime95 Small FFTs(stress CPU) but get a rounding error on core 4 with the Blend Test(stress CPU and RAM).

Here's my OC thread...

I'll see what adding that second fan for push/pull does to my temps...regardless, are those temps acceptable for my setup?

The 61 seams high... I think max is 62* or 65* (do a google search?)

but on that stressfull of a test it may be ok.

Mr. Charles on here had an issue with a mad H50 the surface was all jacked up, he lapped the H50 and got much better results. you can try that, you can try reseating the H50. it comes with alot of paste, I have not had problems using the stock the highest i have seen, I have been folding for days on end (folding is a program that help with research but uses all cores and a fair bit of memory) and max I have seen is 53.

I got a new cooler when my temps were always around 58*c.

I personaly would want to stay under 55*c, run alot of your programs the way you will run your computer and see what the temp it. your not going to ahve prime in the backround at all times do have that much of a heat source. if it sits at 45*c still after playing your game for 10 hours then I think your fine.

So just to be clear, "lapping" is just reseating it without adding new paste? Sorry I am new to this! Also those temps I provided were all under Blended P95 tests so I think you are right I dont see it running much hotter than 55 while gaming for long periods of time.
