How do you guys attach shrouds to your setup?
I use zip ties to put the whole thing together, including the fans.

Currently I have a push/pull intake setup on the front bay

my setup is fan2<rad<shroud<fan1

I only use regular fan screws to attach the first fan (fan1) into the bay fan adapter.

I used 6-32 x 3/8" screws and put them through just the holes in the shrouds closest to the rad and it worked perfect.

Home Depot, Lowes and most hardware stores carry varrying lengths (1ft, 3ft, etc.) of 6-32 "all thread". It is just that, one length of 6-32 threads. Cut it to fit and use a finished cap or washer/nut on the end. You will generally find it standing up in a divided rack along with metal and aluminum stock. I am halfway through a second shroud assembly with 55mm fans and 32mm shrouds for my build using this stuff. It was the best (and only) option I found, but I needed longer than 3", which you should also be able to find at the big box hardware stores too.

FYI, good idea to have a small file and 6-32 die to clean up threads after cutting.

In the process? Pacing yourself?

i just turned on my first build and my bios says my cpu temp is 35C idle or 94F. I'm using the H50 and am wondering if this sounds normal? Also I have the side panel off if that matters.

Ok guys, JUST got my h50, and pretty sure I jacked something up. I read the instructions, had a friend help me mount it. i7 920, 4.0 ghz, it was stable and sub-80c even at load on my old Xigmatek 1283, but with the h50 I mounted it first as exhaust, and within 30 seconds of prime95 I was over 80c. Reversed the fan, made it an intake. Redid my thermal because I was an IDIOT and didn't know about the Shin Etsu and had wiped it clean for AS 5 (I fail at TIM, I hadn't checked any out for years, just stuck with what i knew) re-applied my AS 5, and it still hits over 80 within afew minutes. Any suggestions on what I can do?

Nope. My MoBo is currently being RMA'd so I'm not in any hurry to get things finished. That and I'm currently painting my grills, thumblatches and HDD trays.

I've got most everything done, even HAF my PSU tray. The thumbscrew HAF is currently under the operational HX 850. Gonna let the other end cure before I pull the PSU long enough to swap out sides.

My lockring also got painted.



Part of what's holding me back is I sent two of the toggle bolts with my bro to have them shortened. Then when he gets back from work I'm gonna cleanup the threads, tape off enough thread to leave it clean for reassembly and spray the remaining satin black to match the case interior which I sprayed over the winter. "Pacing yourself"... good one.

AS5 takes about 200 hours to cure.

http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...ml#post7083163

I also replaced the TIM when I got the H50. I knew It was a great TIM and all, but since I'm planning to lap my cpu and the H50, I just figured it would be a pain in the ass to remove that stuff when the time comes, so I replaced with AS5 as well. I'm done with this 200 hour cure bs. Just got an MX-3 and will use it after the lapping.

Anyway, even after the cure time I don't think you'll se a huge decrease in temps, you should get a second fan and go for a push/pull setup. Also, I think is a good idea to replace the fan for 2 with higher CFM and static pressure.

http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...et-no-gts.html

btw, my temps are pretty high for a phenom II X4 - 37c idle 57c prime95 (6 hours) 64c LinX (1 hour). I'm really pissed with the LinX temperatures, since is 2c over the maximum recomended by AMD. I think it has something to do with my push/pull setup, since I'm using 2 Akasa Apache witch is only 1300 rpm. Besides the cpu lap, I'll replace the fans with 2 Sythe Ultra Kase (2000 or 3000).

Ummm...

Lapped 955 BE
Lapped H50

Before Lapp? 48-52c +/- idle temp average stock cooler.
After Lapp w/ Shin-Etsu X23? 34c Idle temp average running 1 fan in exhaust. In abients of 75F +/-

I'm still waiting on my MoBo to come back before I get the skinny on a fully kitted out system. Of course that's going from a stock cooler to a Lapped setup. I might have held off the Lapping to get a more telling result but that's about a 14c drop in any case. I'm pretty sure I would only have seen about 10c drop had I not lapped it and left the stock G751 TIM in place.

Here is my H50 Push/Pull set-up



post #10500 of 28306
Very nice. But for some reason the old adage, "If your friends jumped off a bridge would you jump off a bridge" comes to mind. lol

Not speaking of the H50 of course. If moms axed me that in regards to the H50, my first response would be "how high is the bridge" and then pick myself off the floor after she smacked the taste out my mouth for bein wise.

Seems like that Corsair vid just has people convinced fitting side up. lol
