FYI, the TIM that comes with the H50 is 30x better then any other TIM you can find out there. Its not retailing anywhere.
Shin Etsu isn't easy to come by. The frys near me never has it in stock. Though shin etsu is high quality paste its marginally better than mx-3 or ic7.

I'm planning on this. You know how? Getting an Antec Skeleton case lol. It's not the prettiest case in the world, but I'm willing to bet the H50/70 would work like a champ with fresh air on all sides.

As for TIM. I had AS5, the I switched to MX-2, and now I have the Noctua stuff. So far it seems that they rank: AS5<Noctua<MX2

Hello. First time poster on these forums ever

Just wanted to say thanks to this thread I was able to drop my CPU temps considerably after reading the advice from others.

Here was my 4-day old H70 this morning:


And here it is this evening, after moving the push fan to the outside of my case, along with a homemade shroud :


My temps dropped from 38-41C idle to 27-31C idle (and 55-59C max during stress testing!) All on account of adding that shroud! Amazing!


FYI I'm not overclocking this machine yet -- just upgraded it a few days ago. I'm going to put some Noctua P12's on this bad boy later in the week, in an effort to reduce the sound.

Anyways, thanks again to everyone and their sound advice

Actually think that it is just coming down to the price it should be at for good. It sold higher just because it was new.
