My PSU sits at the bottom of my case and there is only one fan available on the bottom, one on rear-top and two directly on top.

My GPU creates a sort of barrier b/w the upper and lower halves of the case.

I'm going to mount the H70 setup in the front 5.25" bay and I'm considering the following to configs. I know this has been beaten to death, but I can't do a rear exhaust and that forces me to do an intake with the H70 (which people disapprove of) or intake air from the top of the case (which people disapprove of).

Edit: the question then being; which looks like a better setup? Thanks.
From the info I have read on here front intake is best. Like you're first picture (except I would do rear as exhaust) My H50 has been sitting for about 1 month been to lazy to install. But going with front intake.

I would think the first setup would work better for a few reasons,
1) the inflow of air is higher than the output (i prefer this to give a tension of air to push through any extra vented spots to keep more dust out)
2) the top out flow just makes more sense since heat rises,
3)with the h50 and fan across hdd's pushing air towards the back (towards psu and across gpu) and the top rear fan pushing towards the front i would think this would give a better air rotation internally and aid overall temp.
-That's just my two cent's worth anyway XD

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum and would really appreciate some advice and what you guys/gals might think about an issue I’m having.

so I set up my system a few weeks ago with a stock h50, I noticed that my temperatures were a tad higher than when I had my old arctic freezer 7. I wondered about this and let it sit for a week to see if it gets a bit better.... after about a week i over clocked it a bit to my current 3.5ghz and the temperatures were at about 38-39 idle and about 60-62 under load... so i felt that these temperatures were a little high and after doing some research I decided to reapply the thermal paste and also lap the heat sink base.

so this sounds all fine and dandy until I put everything back together and turned it on to give it a try......... now when I check my temperatures... the idle has gone down to about 33-34 degrees but my load temperatures are at 67-70 which is up quite a bit from before... so I’m quite baffled about this situation... I used arctic silver 5, I didn’t change anything else.... my only thought is to wait until the thermal paste perhaps settles a bit but I cant see it going down 10 degrees.....

What do you people think? Thanks in advance for any insight you have to offer!

Try and reseat. You have to get it just perfect for it to work 100%. It took me 6x to finally get it right.

Too much TIM could cause the temps to increse also.

The TIM that comes from the factroy is better than AS5 also. Keep that in mind.

Speaking of factory TIM; are people scraping some of it off (seems to have more than necessary) or just seating it as is?

Thanks for the reply. i actually tried to reseat the heatsink already... about 3 times... and it did get a little bit better... it was pushing 72 degrees on my first try..... the thing that i dont get is that my idle temperatures did go down about 5 degrees.... Intel says my tcase is 72degrees so these temperatures kinda freak me out.... perhaps i should try to find some shin etsu to replace the original thermal compound....??

Did you just re-seat 3 times with the same compound? If so that is the problem.You have to clean the old compound from the cpu & h50 base every time you re-seat & then apply fresh compound.

Yes shin etsu or mx-2/mx-3 is very good.
