Ok, Sweet, thanks.



What do you guys think of my temps (Sig rig settings)?
Minimum: 34, 33, 35, 33
Load max: 64,63,62, 64

I so badly want to see New Zealand and trout fish there before time passes me by........need at least $7K for that trip....If my GF tags along, Ill have to increase that by 130%...then again not too bad...she'd never caught a trout until I took her 6 years ago....

Go exhaust if you have enough intakes already to maintain positive pressure.

Correct that is one of the jobs of TIM. But you get a better result with less grooves, a flatter surface and less TIM. This is how it allows for better heat transfer as it brings the two surfaces closer together without actually touching and allows the heat to transfer quicker from the CPU.

The mirror finish is a result of lapping not the goal of it.

I'm back up btw. With the H50 installed and CPUID reporting a minimum core temp(x4) of 32c.

so twixx all these people are wrong in thinking that applying thermal paste to a smooth mirror finish could yeild better results then applying it to a rough surface

I also read many post saying it spreads better and takes less TIM to do the same job

Thanks for your input. I bought the Intel Q6700 originally for its video encoding speed vs AMD. Yes it runs hot under load, but not that bad when room temp < 28C.

Since I am not running the hot vid cards now, internal case temps are pretty good. Though not really a gamer, I have looked at Crysis more than once.

Anyway, the time has come again for me to investigate all the current, popular, and newest hardware and it's reliability.

I've heard some good things about the new AMD chip being readied for release.

To be honest, I know a little about CPU's, mombos, video, etc.....what I like knowing more is what actually works well in diverse apps and is built to last.

With the global economic situation as it is, I fear some manufactures will willingly advert quality in order to reduce costs to improve their bottom line and just spin more hype to get people to buy a so-so / ut-oh product.

Well that's good, the 32C. I assume you are OC'd too, some???

Nope not OC'd. Not yet. I want to let my system recouperate after the Post issues it was having.

I tried to slim my timings back down to where I had them earlier and BSoD'ed. So I've got to see where I can make changes and possibly up the voltage to get it there.

Just thought I should post the results of some basic fan orientation testing I did for the record. I tested GT AP-15 push, GT AP-15 pull, stock push, stock pull (all exhausting out the back). All tests were also done with the fans at full speed.

Conclusion:
GT AP-15 pull, but only by a degree... maybe two. My advice: save your money or at least purchase cheaper fans if you have to have new fans.

Perhaps the hubs on the GTs are too big therefore choking too much of the radiator area... Eventually I'll test this with a shroud. In the mean time, I don't think the stock fan is bad by any means - I've seen some people refer to it as "crappy" and I don't know where they're getting this idea unless they just prefer really noisy 38mm high rpm fans.

Seems like for what people are spending on dual fans for p/p, you'd be better off buying a dual radiator, modding the h50, and dropping 5 to 10 C.

Disclaimer:
I realize everybody's system is different and generalizations are hard if not impossible to make...

ok big question, here are my OC results after 30 min of prime95, the temps in real temp dont match up with my Asus suite or with speedfan readings , which ones should i trust ? and I know not to go over 80c so i am confused if i can push my system further or is this is good as it gets for the H50 setup?

Temps seem fine, actually pretty low for that kind of an OC.

Try for 4.4ghz. . .

well i am a noob at OC'ing so why is Real temp giving me high temp results while speedfan and Asus suite telling me a different story ? here are the idle temp differences too with room temp at 76F and 2 Cooler Master R4-L2R fans in push pull
