If your going to OC of course it is worth it. No one can tell you how much you can lower your temps because everyone's setup is different. Even someone with the same hardware/case/fans/ambient temps could get different temps because every CPU is unique and different.

There is no reason to change the TIM to MX5 the stock is better than that unless you have to move/re-seat the pump/block then no reason to put something new on.

54C is decent if that is your full load temps(running prime95 or similar program) I have a push/pull setup with shrouds and the H50 in my front 5 1/4 bays as intake and I get full load temps in the mid 40's before I had p/p with shrouds I was at 62+ way too hot for AMD chips so had to do something.
mid 40's load sounds nice, what is your clock/vcore?

3.8 1.425vcore. My board is not the best for OC it seems to want a lot of V for little bumps. I am happy with my temps and small OC so it's going to stay there for a while.

From a logical point of view the push pull method sounds like a horrible idea. and the stock method sounds like a horrible idea too. I don't want to blow hot air from the rad to my system but I also don't want the hot air from the system going through the rad and not letting the cpu be as cool as it should. So logically the rad should not be in the case.anybody been able to place it outside of the case?

I still got good temps.

Better fans and push/pull isn't gonna net you a 10C difference your looking at 5 on load at most and 2-3 on idle.
Your right it didn't net me 10C difference it did almost 20C.

This whole thread is page after page of different fans/setups and the like for the H50 and now H70 I have not seen anyone come here and ever post I have stock H50 and I am going to keep it that way....

It is an obvious joke about Best Buy sorry if you couldn't see it.

Never mentioned that if you keep it stock that you shouldn't be here just pointing out that a thousand pages aren't dedicated to keeping a stock cooler.

Push/Pull is a completely logical setup makes perfect sense. Any air cooler or even most water cooled systems still either pull cool air into a case and and vent hot air on all the other components or suck hot air from the case through them and exhaust out. Very few even full WC setups have the radiator and fans outside the case.

There was at least one I remember that put the whole radiator and fans outside his case it wasn't that many pages back but at the speed this thread moves it would be hard to find.

I thought about that but you would have to cutt the tubes and then you would not have a closed system anymore.

A lot more on that H50 than the single stock fan eh? Also, wanted to give a shout out to someone from Oregon! I'm still an Oregonian at heart, I just happen to live very far away

FYI, the TIM that comes with the H50 is 30x better then any other TIM you can find out there. Its not retailing anywhere.
Most people end up re-applying a TIM after remounting the pump b/c the mounting system is a PITA. After pulling it off a clean start with a new TIM is in the cards.

If you think about it, any standard air cooling fan blowing on a bunch of heat exchangers inside of your case is not only pulling hot air to cool the CPU but also exhausting hotter air into your case. Worst case scenario the H50/H70 only does one of the two.

Some people mount on the outside of the case. Just have to mod the tubing (voids warranty) or run the pump/tubes into the case through a hole large enough to accommodate them via a quick case mod.

I can vouch for those temps though I think you have a C2 vs C3 stepping. I have C3 on my 965 and get just a bit higher at 20C ambient (almost same set-up though). I've just recently changed my OC to 4.020 Ghz at 1.5 V, NB at 2630 mhz 2.325 V and Mem at 1620 mhz 9-9-9-24-33 1t 1.7 V rock stable. Max temp on Prime 95 blended test was 53 C at 20 C ambient. I now run this OC 24/7.

I was thinking about moving to the H70 same config but not sure it would be worth it. To recap I have 2 X 25 mm shrouds, 2 X 2,000 rpm Ultra Kaze and intake from front drive bays.

im using the beta version of right now so far so good.


Yeah bro... Thanks for the help...

Yesterday I downloaded the 260.xx version.
I did uninstall the driver by going to Device Manager, and uninstall, reboot, then reinstall...

I did not hunt for any existing system files in the /windows,/system32 etc, though....

But I will try what you said, the driver sweeper thing.

Hopefully it helps =D... once again, thanks bro

I just checked again to make certain I have a C3 stepping also. At stock if I pick default for my motherboard it sets the vcore at 1.4 I know I can put it down to 1.2vcore and it runs fine at stock don't know why by default it starts so high. I tried to stay at a stable 4.0GHz but had to have my vcore around 1.5125 and stayed around 55C which is just on the upper limit for me to run 24/7 so staying at 3.8GHz is fine with me.
