I would but there's just too much of it. The diameter of the paste is longer than the actual CPU.

Question for the people that use the stock TIM... aren't you worried about the paste dripping through the cervices? I mean if I apply the CPU cooler the way it is, the paste would also be on the cpu socket clamp.

i'm using the stock Shin Etsu from h70 all i did is upgraded my fan to GT AP15 for push/pull configuration. tested 10hours prime 95 last night and my max temp load bout 64-67.
anyway heres my cpu-z



might go back to 4.0GHz though i know my 4.2 is stable. but since im using 2 gtx 480 sc i'm getting so much heat from it. so i might as well go back to 4.0
anyway keep the stock TIM man from h50/h70 its really good. otherwise use Shin Etsu if u ever reseat it . to be honest i never use other tim for h70/h50 other than the stock(shin etsu).

and never had that issue about too much tim dripping on the socket area... maybe its depend on how u install it i saw people installing it like they where pushing the pump too much.. then yah in that case it will spread all over the bracket.. anyway i let the heat spread it for me to be honest

I thought you had already installed the H70 and where re-applying TIM now.....just use the stock TIM. If you want to you can put on a pair of rubber gloves and take it all off and then split it in half and re-apply it. I did it for a friend it balls up quite easily and then I used a razor blade split it in half and then put it in the center of the H50(H70 would be the same) then install it as normal except I at least didn't quite tighten it completely until I started it up once to let the TIM "melt" into all the crevices then while it was running I completely tightened it down and his temps have been great.

No not yet... =( I'm too chicken right now to even try it. for the past 2 hours, ive been just reading and watching videos on people applying thermal paste... I would try your idea on reusing the paste but it just sounds too risky for a noob such as myself.

Anyway, I went out and bought Arctic Silver Ceramique. With the H70 cooler, is it best to apply tim on the heatsink or the cpu? And which method is best? I'm thinking of doing the dot method and letting the heatsink's pressure spread out the paste.

I was like this till a few months ago well not exactly but a little cautious.

My method is just a blob in the middle of the chip a small one.

What you've got to think about is no matter how bad you do it your not gonna get horrible temps they are only gonna be increased by 10C max!

So stop worrying mate!

Yeah, perhaps you're right... I'm all acting like my computer will blow up if I don't apply it right... lol.

Thanks, I'm gonna give this a shot tonight.

Hi guys I have the h50 and will be doing a push/pull setup as intake with the rad, 2 fans and either a 25mm shroud or a 38mm shroud in the front 5.25 drive bay on my HAF X.

I already have a 3,000 rpm ultra kaze fan in the gpu duct running at 100% and it's loud.

What fans should I run in my push/pull setup considering that I already have a ultra kaze making me deaf..?

Factors I'm concerned with is:

1. Performance- I want to overclock to 3.8 or 4.0 on my 930 need to keep it as cool as possible.

2. Noise - I have that 1 ultra kaze that's actually inside the case and is still loud, I don't know if another noisy fan will make things worse or won't matter because all I hear is that 1 ultra kaze..

3. Price - looking to spend no more than $25 per fan, need 2.

So far I'm looking at :

Gentle typhoons ap-15s - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-092-_-Product lawrence did the math and the cfm is 57.68.

Ultra Kazes - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-054-_-Product Only considering these if the noise won't be worse than having the 1.

San Ace - http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27970

I also heard a 38mm shroud is better for the h50 than a 25mm shroud is that true?
Is there any benefit in having a shroud on the pull fan as-well or no?
