I just installed mine and it was a pain in the A for AM2/AM3.

for some reason you can only tighten the screw to a certain extend or you won't be able to get the block to fit right, then finally you can tighten the screws until they are not loose after you have figured out that the plastic mounts can't be all the way down until that block fits in the way it is suppose to.

More complicated than people claim (took me an hour an a half), but I am just happy it is in there finally. I don't want to have to take it out ever again

Ill post some pics within the next couple days to week when it is all installed..
Hard to answer a question like that =) Too many variables. Even if someone else can reply with stats on how high they've gotten the same cpu you are using it doesn't mean yours can match it or can't out-do it. Ambient temps and uniqueness of CPU's is going to leave a few degrees/mhz up in the air. I would expect at the very least a 5-10% improvement over your air cooler though.....more if it's not a good one.

Of course it depends on the style or your case/motherboard tray but I had no trouble mounting mine to my AM3 CPU/motherboard. My tray had the cut out behind the motherboard to put the back clip in so that of course cut down on time cause I didn't have to take it all out. From start to finish counting disconnecting all the wires and reconnecting, taking out the old cooler and cleaning off the old TIM from the CPU and installing the H50 took me 18 minutes the actual install of the H50 was only 3-5 min max. Though I have been working on computers since the first home PC was made though.

I put the back clip on and just barely put the screws in the front mount so they where barely holding it in place and then held up on it while I put it into place and then rotated it where I wanted it while it was held up away from the CPU so it didn't mess with the TIM and then locked it into place and screwed it into place securely.

I know that you already have yours mounted but I'm posting this anyway in the off chance that you may have to reseat it. It should make things much simpler for you later on and it's how I fixed the same issue with mine. Asetek really should stop throwing the AMD inserts in with the kit cause they don't work properly.

Use the Intel inserts(the two hole inserts) instead of the AMD set. Then take the screws and thread them through until they spin freely and before the 2nd set of threads catch. Lay the bracket on the metal inserts and give each screw a quarter turn. Once you have this done you should be able to wiggle the lock ring as though it were not attached but not be able to remove it. That should give you enough room to mount it w/o issue.

Oh and I highly recommend mounting the backing plate and ring before mounting the MoBo. The reason is there is no definitive size for the CPU cutout in Cases. And the inserts sometimes pop free if you apply too much downforce when tightening screws. I had the bottom right one come out and it scored the paint in my 932 so bad that it was straight metal to metal contact. That's a problem. But once I performed the above mounting action it was no longer a problem.

Also does anyone have an idea of the max speed a h70 can handle? i am currently at 4.0ghz with hyper threading turned off with an air cooler... and do you guys have hyperthreading turned on while using your h50/h70s?

im sitting at 4ghz with ht on with my h50 p/p works perfectly fine
h70 p/p should do even better

H70 will do better but not that much if you set up H50 like most everyone here has it set up. The average temp difference is ~4c if I were to use the same fans from the H70 kit in P/P with a shroud.

This is based on what I've seen other people(sorry don't remember who it was here) reported as their results moving from H50 to H70. Until Corsair officially moves away from H50 or lowers the price of H70, I wouldn't spend the money on H70. That or unless the pump is too tall on the H50 to fit between the Radiator and the MoBo. Some Cases are too thin and require something with a limited amount of depth. H70 would be the best option in that regard. However, $60 is much better than $100+ imho.

ya i havnt read to many comparisons between them but thats all? wow not realy worth that much more
and ya with a shroud on the push side i have to have the pull fan on the out side of my case other wise it would hit

You should see more improvement in sound rather than tempsbut you should get a couple degrees improvement.

Question is about sitting, does it matters how it sits? or the copper base in any case will cover all the cpu? I ask this because it is rectangular instead of being a square.
The bottom plate on the H50 is bigger than all cpu's you would use so the direction won't affect it, I think it's more a question of having your pump sitting properly on the cpu, if one side is tighter than the other than more contact is done on one side and proper cooling is not applied to your entire cpu.

It could be that your cpu of pump plate is not flat and not making proper contact, you could try lapping your cpu and pump but i would find out first if that is really the problem.

What tim are you using, does it require a long curing time, I am limited as to what I can get but I found MX-3 to work really well with no curing time, just a couple of heat cycles.
