Adding shrouds to any fans you choose will help with the noise level of the fans and cooling if you put them in the front you have plenty of space for shroud(s).
You mention you have reseated the H50..did you apply new TIM? If not you need to. If you did apply new TIM what kind did you use and have you waited for it's designated cure time?
well i decided to use a brand new h-50 return the old one and clean my cpu really nice and reinstall/reseat the new h-50 and did the push/pull config.
at 3.8 ghz oc my temp is good only 55+celcius max load running occt.
but at 4.0ghz overclock im getting a bit higher...
so i might buy me ap 15 and see if that help and add a shroud..
and yes last time i reseat my h-50 i use AS5 tim but its not good enough so i decided to return my h-50 and got me a new one and all i did is clean my cpu and everything seems fine..
i just need to figure out how to improved the temp inside my case i guess....Edited by Trademark - 7/30/10 at 7:54pm
