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).
My original p/p setup I used two of the same Akasa Apache you are currently and had way too high temps though it was also before the 200 hour cure time on my AS5.

I changed to two Scythe GentleTyphoons 1850rpm fans and two 25mm shrouds and now after the 200 hour cure time I am getting 23-24C idle temps and 36C load with Prime95 so far the longest I run it for is 3 hours. LinX I have run for an hour and still the same thing 36C max.

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.

~Ceadder
I'd really like to see some tests with lapped vs non lapped H50 on the same system. Just to see if it's worth the trouble. I don't think it's as easy as lapping a cpu or a regular heatsink.

Thanks for the info. I think I'm on the right path then. If I get 29-30C on idle and about 50-55C on stress tests it will be nice.

I still wanna try to push my current cpu a little bit more than my current overclock, so the lower the better.

Just sent you a PM. Your 965 C3 can easily run 24/7 at 3.8 ghz with stock voltage. The H50 keeps it plenty cool enough. In fact at 4.017 ghz my 965 C3 never goes beyond 53 C on any stress test (anything below 55 C is fine for 24/7). PM me if you need more info.

Opps...my bad. Just noticed it's a C2. Never mind then. Even 3.7 ghz takes some work with that chip.

k, so Scythe Kaze Maru 2's aren't good fans? i have the 1200 RPM setup, 61 cfm I beleive. I can get another, push/pull exhaust, and with that and curing my temps should drop below 80? Because it hits 80 within 2 minutes in Prime95 max heat testing right now

I tested both the KM2 at 1200rpm and 1700rpm and while they make an acceptable push fan they really need to be mated with a much better performing pull fan (higher static pressure). My cpu has lower thermals than yours so I'm not sure what exact setup would perform best for you. But a single KM2 1200rpm is inadequate at best, and 2 will have little benefit.

Is 34c idle normal for the i7 930? I just turned my computer on for the first time and that's what it is giving me. I am using the h50 with push pull and shrouds.

Ambient temp?? If it's -20C I'd say your H50 is no good....if it's +30C I'd say your H50 is doing great!!......you see what I mean?

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

Is there any benefit fitting it down?.

No. He just keeps insisting it's a problem even though he has not tested or proved such a statement. Why some people feel like making claims with absolutely no foundation I will never know. Making such claims is a disservice to this community, but he insists on making them anyway. I guess he is smarter than Corsair or the H50s designer(s).
