nice job man, btw, you could always pull out your gpus and run that 8 pin in-between the pci-e slot and the corner of the cards..you know..the spot that almost seems like that's what it is there for about 1" -1.5" back from edge of your mobo and right before the pci-e slots start. so long as you're careful not to bend any of the components you can definitely make that cable a little stealthier =D

If you disable smart fan and run it @ max rpm, you should reduce your cpu's temps by a couple of degrees C. I'm currently using a push pull configuration and running both fans at max rpm. Noise is not an issue for me but this depends on the fan(s) you use.

Thanks alot. I didn't think of that. It's my first build and advice from you guys is always appreciated. I'm definitely going to try your suggestion.

(apologize for my trolling but i'm bored =) seconded. if say you're using Antec tri-cools or some other sub par fan like that lowering the setting from max may have a larger impact on your temps than you'd be happy with...

btw I have read some discussions regarding mixed fan configurations for push/pull and in these it's stated that the better fan(static pressure, CFM, etc) should be used as the pull fan while the slower running one does the pushing...anyone on here confirm this is wise? seems to me that the ingress of fresh, cool air would be more important than dissipating the warmed up air since(at least in my configuration with the h50 set up as front intake) you have other exhaust fans to help with this?

Is it safe to run one of these with the rad in a bucket of salty ice water? (Slushbox)

np man hehe, I went through that same dilemma with my antec900 case and rosewill PSU..when I finally noticed that open path to run the 8pin(after like 2months lmao) was stoked because it was the ugliest cord in my case at the time heh =)

Hey I just got an H50, I love this thing seems pretty amazing. I easily got my I5-650 to overclock to 4.1GHz without really trying and I'm a bit of a noob to overclocking. I try and tweak it later.

I'm wondering about my load temps though, with the OC I get around 61C on the first core but 51C on the second core, idle and load is the same way with stock speeds its about 5-10 degrees lower on the second core, it seems like this is common with these CPUs, or have I seated the H50 wrong.

Also I'm guessing that the temp is a little high but likely due to the fact I didn't play with the voltage I set it to auto and it jumped it up to 1.3v that might be higher than I need for a 4.1 OC not really sure, like I said I'll tweak it later.

Alright so seeing as how I'm going to have to reseat this thing for the 3rd time, I ordered some Shin Etsu since that worked best originally. Now my question is, since I'm limited to my amount of uses, what is the best way I should apply it? I know for quad core CPUs you should do the thin line method across the middle, but I've heard of people doing the thin line across the copper plate of the pump instead of the cpu. Is this recommended?
