is this increase in temps normal for the first couple hours or did i royally f*** something up?
yea it is and 2-4c is probably about the difference you'll see from a fully cured TIM i think? Shin-Etsu is instantly cured, or rather, doesn't need to be cured at all, so you never see the cure ...curve....when first installing it stock...i thought I had botched mine at one point as well but it evened about over that weekend.
2-4c is a little high i think to be blamed on 1 added fan but I suppose nothing is impossible, heh. More likely though you just need to be patient...if you really had botched you'd bee seeing way more noticeable temperature increases.

to the CPU only? and so basically same amount as before it was lapped? That just doesn't sit right with me. I was thinking when I get the H70 lapped of using spread but only on heatsink. Used a razorblade to spread on h50 heatsink- after lapping i think that is easier way than trying to worry about wrinkles in your finger condom. Only have a couple more reseats left in my ICDiamond7...gotta get it right, hehe.

I tried to search around for this issue but didn't really find anything. I saw one thread (not OCN) where the grill was cut from the pull fan to alleviate the issue. Could it really be turbulence or is the fan just not mounted properly?
There is actually quite a few people here that complain(ed) about their H50's making a whining noise and cutting away the grill from the where the fan was mounted it fixed their problem.

its just the cpu that had temp increases.. only very slightly on the mobo.
its actually 2-4C above my temps BEFORE lapping so its well over what i was expecting.

non lapped temps: idle-37C load-42C

lapped temps now: idle-39/40C load-48/49C

i think i might give it til tomorrow evening, if i dont see any improvements ill take it apart and reseat it.

thanks for the input

Ah, sorry, meant to ask if you applied TIM to the cpu then placed a bare heatsink on top of it, or if you applied TIM to both surfaces as some people do..(seems like with them both being lapped I should need less TIM than I did when they were rough as I've eliminated a lot of the places the TIM was needed for). I know it's very easy to over do it on the TIM if you're not careful and I would imagine it's even more delicate with lapped surfaces? Anyways, just trying to get your guy's opinion on best TIM/application for lapped cpu and heatsink.

Hey guys, first post/question here.

I just got a free H50 kit. I installed the H50 (with push/pull Antec Tri-Cool 79cfm fans) on my stock Phenom II 940 and although temps improved (3-4C drop vs Xigmatek S1283) I was less than thrilled.

I have a Swiftech MCR 120mm radiator lying around (the one with the built in reservoir) and I can get another from a friend. I was wondering if I could do something like this: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?h...&mpage=1#86675 but install a second H50 block/pump/reservoir between the two radiators as I'm a bit worried whether or not one H50 pump can flow enough fluid for two radiators. I've read about pump failures when some people tried to upgrade to a 240mm radiator.

So basically it would be like this: CPU block/pump -> Rad #1 -> pump #2 -> Rad #2 -> Back into CPU block/pump.

Or would it be better to run the pumps in series? So: Pump -> Pump -> Rad -> Rad -> Back into pump.

Well, welcome!

yeah, the H50 is not OMG***WATERCOOLZING but you're not helping any by slapping on tri-cools =P after a lot of work, some money for good rad fans, and location/direction troubleshooting you might get another 4-6c drop, maybe more, out of the H50 without modding the tubing.
I have heard too of how underpowered the pump is in comparison to custom wc systems pumps that people are used to so you probably would indeed bottleneck with too much fluid and not enough pressure by adding another rad by itself. As for pump loop locations all I can say is that it's worth a night or weekend of study(which I haven't fully done). I know waterflow shares some similar problems with airflow when it comes to having multiple 'engines' set up in series.....e.g. apparently it's better to have the push fan at a slightly lower RPM than the pull fan to minimize resistance and optimize the pressure or something along those lines(though i personally felt like it helped when i raised the push fan back to full RPM during a stress test)...have read similar discussions with water pumps but can't seem to find the link now...

Hi all,

I just upgraded my system to a Phenom II X6 1055T and decided to go with H50 for cooling instead of stock cooler. Will be attempting to overclock soon and will post the results as well as some pics here soon.
post #12900 of 28303
Just done a couple of tests on my H70, corsair fans & GT's (1850 rpm models).
Results are interesting, the GT's knocked a couple of degrees off my load temps, but the noise is drastically reduced. The stock corsair fans are really loud whereas the GT's, although having a slight 'whine', are much easier to live with. Both were set up rear exhaust. Ambient temp for both tests was 21c.
