I had a bit of a battle installing my H70. LOL I seem to always struggle with these installs and it took me the better part of 2 hours and 4-5 re-seatings of the H70 before I think I got it set properly. I cannot vouch for the state of the thermal paste after that many re-seatings.
Default BIOS settings ran 29 C
Now O/C to 4.2 GHz at 47C idle. Too high?
Thoughts appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Please tell me you load temps... then we'll see if its high.
If you did 4-5 re-seatings with the same paste... it would be messy under that cold plate and maybe, higher temps.
Give it a day or 3 to settle down. If temps remain high, suggest another re-seat... just the one this time, not 4 or 5
Sys FAN 2220 RPM - not bad
CPU0 FAN 1722 RPM - did you remember to disable smart fan and power saving in BIOS?
AUX FAN 1395 RPM - Pump I assume - okayEdited by Sethy666 - 11/5/10 at 5:43am
