HT is off also . I just randomly set 1.375v to start off so it could probably do it at 1.344v... but why waste time when it's not my computer and these settings work anyways. He's just using it for facebook and e-mail
Just for facebook and E-mail!??! Your friend is a bit silly isn't he?

By the way, wanted to let you guys know I just got my H50 in last weekend, had some trouble installing it in the P193, have it as push/pulll exhaust in the back where it was getting in the way of the 200 mm Big Boy fan.

Remounted the Big Boy on the outside of the sidepanel with zipties, just untill I have time to go to a hardware store next weekend and get some proper screws and washers. Will post some pics later this week, maybe tonight (EU time)

Also, the ASRock X58 Extreme3 Mobo I'm using has a very high Northbridge cooler with fan, that prevented me from mounting the big push/pull combination. Had to take the fan off and bent the heatsink a bit to make it fit, so all in all, it's been taking a bit longer than I hoped for, but it's getting there.

Ready to run some benchmarks tonight and then start overclocking to really see the impact on temps.

Guys I am thinking of modding my H70, but I want to ask experts if H70 pump is able to handle adding a reservior, and if extra cooling liquid going to help for better performance?

Coolant volume and a reservior are not going to increase cooling (Edit) This statement appears to be incorrect with a number of people reporting an increase in cooling after adding a reservior. My theory would be that extra coolant fills the radiator more completely.

but these will;
More air flow, either by stronger fans or using fan shrouds to remove the dead spot in the center of the fans.

Cooler air, outside air drawn in.

More radiator area, combine multiple radiators.

I would like to see someone mod the H70 by adding a GPU water block...

1334 posts to read through... Which is better? H50 or the H70? Does not look like many own it over the H50.

the cost difference is to much.... at the moment.

If you dont have either get the H70.. is it worth the $$ to go from the H50 to the H70...no....

Finishing up build atm. Installed H70 as rear exhaust but w/ a shroud and both fans (only one shroud on push side) it's a monster in the case. I ended up mounting pull fan on the outside of the case and the rest of the setup on the inside, sealing the gaps with that double-sided foam tape (which is impossible to remove cleanly after about an hour of setting I've found out).

Waiting on windows 7 to arrive this weekend so that I can get the setup running for the first time.

I'll post pics and some baseline temps next week i'm hoping.

My h70 HAS ARRIVED 2 hours ago, when I get out of work I will install it, and see how it goes...

I will let you guys know the new TEMP...

My Stock cooler stays at 48's-53's ... I hope I can get some 34's with the h70... Otherwise I will buy the NH-D14 and cut it with a cutting disk , and check it out.

Hi guys,

Man! This thead just "keeps on keepin' on"! I sure as Hell can't keep up with it!

@Reaper:
I'm sorry I didn't acknowledge your welcome to this forum sooner. I only found it as I was getting ready to tear my system down for the H70 install (and other mods.). I'm sure you understand... Thank you!

@A+2AMD:
I built an AM3 system, with a Phenom II 965, for a friend last November. He doesn't know it, but it got wet because I was drooling all over it!

Nice build!

@Everyone:
I knew before I ordered the H70, that it wouldn't mount inside my "Armour Jr." case. I also had my doubts about the H50 as well, but thanks to the many fine contributors of this select club, I was able to formulate a plan for my latest "butcher job".

I built this system almost four years ago, so I have had a lot of time to think...

Now that the job is complete (Yeah! Right! The VelociRaptor should be here Friday, and I just thought of a good use for 3 "pots", with black knobs, on an old computer out in the shop.), I have no doubt that the H70 install is the, single, best improvement I could have ever made. I can finally get the old 6400+ "cranking". I did a little more than "just" install the H70, but quite honestly: I'm tickled *****less!!!

Anyway... I didn't intend to bore you with words... I meant to use pictures... :

See ya, Milt
