You do know with your processor that 95% of all boards report the wrong temps? They are 10C lower than what the actual temps are.

With a different CPU but same temp range CPU I am getting in the low to mid 40's.

Hi, I am a proud owner of the Corsair H50, I like it so much I have one on both a my rigs. I do plan on building a full water cool setup, but for now this cooler works very well. I would love to join the club, thanks!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

I went to my local hardware store and they don't have any 6/32" screws longer then 2 inchs, so I got long super long threaded rod and cut the size I needed for this project.




Yes I know, I probably should have cut the grill out for better airflow, but I might want to sell this case in the future and I didn't want to decrease those chances by gutting it.

I was going to get the H70 but then saw a water cooling system for $130 + another $30 for the liquids. Do you guys think it's worth paying $80 more for a real water cooler or just sticking with a H70, I'll be running a i7-950 at 4.2ghz with fast ram and a rampage III extreme motherboard.

Personally I will sacrifice some cooling efficiency for the ease of the H70 and the piece of mind that Corsair's warranties provide.
If you're only looking at W/C that is within $100 of corsair's systems then I wouldn't think it would be worth it for all the hassle and upkeep you're also buying.
Not trashing full W/C loops I'm just saying if you're going to go custom w/c go all out with a good 3-400$+ system. If you're spending in the sub $200 range just save some money and buy a h70.
My opinion anyway.

If you want to go to a full W/C loop then that does not look like to bad of a kit to start out with... I would get the kit...

I would then when time/money allowed replace/Upgrade the CPU block with something better... I don't think that block is the best... perhaps upgrade the radiator, later on if you need more performance....

But the H50/H70 is the best hassle free water cooling loop you can get. If you want something bigger I cant remember the company but its the exact same thing as the H50 but with a 240 radiator.

i think the h70 is higher quality pieces than that kit you linked to but i will admit a triple rad closed loop system for 123$ definitely has some appeal.

XSPC makes excellent rads! I'm not sure about their blocks though....This kit doesn't look all that bad, but IMO if your going with a custom loop like that then you might as well buy the parts seperate for the best performance. Just like Magus said, The H50/70 kit is a 100% hassle and maintenance free water cooling solution.

Uh, this is bad yes?

Was trying to get to 4.0GHz.

3.8 GHz @ 1.40v @ 62c?

Decided to mod this after unimpressive temps to start with:

Lapped, Push/Pull (Intake), 2x Shrouds top and bottom, and Shin Etsu.

Can't figure out why I am getting this temp.

Ambients are 23~25c.

The two fans were taken off the CoolerMaster V6 GT (which was able to beat the Noctua NH-D14) 2200 RPM (High Static) and 93.47 CFM, which gave me the same temps.

Reseated 6 times, retightened 6 times. Making good clear contact, small x style application, total coverage but not overpowering (I can still see shinny copper underneath.)

Tubes are centered between the 4-5 oclock position making baseplate perfectly 90deg up or sideways (enough to cover all of the AMD processor.)

Comparisons:
People getting 53~55c at 4.2 CPU / 3.0 GHz NB and voltages in the 1.45~1.475v / CPU-NB 1.35v range.
