I am actually very surprised at my idle temps only 1-2C above my ambient that's crazy.

What's your temps if I may ask since we have the same CPU?
Yesterday was nice today the cpu was angry at me lol
I was seeing 29c idle & 39c load @ 3.92Ghz (224 x 17.5) 1.38v.... then it BSOD today at me... so now tested 4.01Ghz you can see above my post... went way hotter... so I'll stick back at stock.

A couple of months ago with another board I was fine with 4.21ghz (200 x 21) 1.48v, that one actually idle was the same 29c but max load was 54c... so I think its my mobo not letting me overclock much (I tested again the same settings it BSOD after 2 minutes in Intel's burn test, i wasn't going to give more voltage since duhh much more hotter) & well something is creating extra heat today (maybe the ambient, it does feel a bit hotter outside than yesterday)

so yeah... wte... your ambient helps you allot more, compared to mines which is worse, I'm doing these tests with my Air Conditioner directly hitting my computer.

If you can keep it below 62 it's technically fine

I got to 3.8 but my temps were around 58 so I also decided to go back to stock too. Maybe when winter comes around we can try again!

if it BSOD'd at @ 3.92 why would you even try 4.01? I currently run at 3.9 (18.5x211) with 1.48v and cannot go higher without BSOD.

I have AC but not even in the same room as the computer still maintain the constant 72F temps. I always run my computers 24/7 but even non OC my temps where too high for my liking so I wasn't running it 24/7 which is why I got the H50. Now that my temps are under control I won't worry about running it as much as I want. Personally with the 965 I wouldn't run it over 55C if your running it 24/7 like me. I am happy with my 3.8 OC not going to mess with it anymore too many BSOD trying to go higher.

Made a thread for this but no answers so I guess I'll ask here.

Going to build my new system soon so I just want to make sure if this is the best fan setup for maximum cooling. The case I'm using is the CM haf 922 and a H50 cooler. I plan to get side fans for the case but I don't know if it's better to get one 200mm fan or 2 120mms to put on the side.

Front fan - intake
Side fan(s) - intake
Top fan - exhaust
Rear fans (push-pull with radiator) - exhaust

I read you should install push pull as intake but I figured since the side fan is blowing cool air onto the motherboard and cpu anyway that it'd be more efficient have the rear as exhaust. Or should I just make that intake also and only have the top as exhaust? And should I get one 200m or 2 120mm fans for the side panel?

go 120, its more cool air for the h50 to suck in, aand keep the h50 in exhaust


@jbl2226h: your build made me need to change my pants....

A 6-32 thumb screw ran through did the trick but just curious what you did.
I didn't bend anything
The tap i had was small, so i just ran it through by hand, with the help of pliers (in some, then back, in some more then back) until the point went through to almost touching the rad... in and out a bit more (teehee obviously) and viola, tapped to M4

Or you can do what i said above and get a tap and die for whatever thread you want.
I simply could not find any source for 6-32 bolts long enough for fans and shrouds locally, so i sourced a tap and a die for M4 thread bolts (fine thread), got some M4 bolts and cut them to length, ran the die over them and bobs you're mothers brother.

Hope that helps.

Leak testing with the Res's stock barbs.



Before the UV dye went in.



After the Dye.

A poor video of adding the Dye,

YouTube- Adding UV dye to my Watercooling System

As you can see the bottow pipe coming off the Res is a little long so i will be re-routing it and cutting it down abit.

Better photo's tomorrow, more Dye and adding the Ultra Kaze 3000 back as a push.

What do you guys think?
whered you get that kit?
