I highly doubt the H70 is THAT much better than my H50, there's no way i could hit 4ghz on my i5 with it, ive reseated it almost 5 times, tried every fan/shroud config there is, and its just not getting the job done.
Well i have my i7 870 @ 4.2 ghz / 1.392v / HT on / TURBO on ..... 39/39/38/38 idle on a fairly warm day and the computer has been on for hours , 75 degrees 100% load in prime . Playing nfs hot pursuit or cod black ops maxed out doesnt seem to get over 65 degrees so im happy with that .
Its obvious you have done something wrong ... If my h50 can cool down my i7 at those speeds im sure it would have no troubles with your i5 . Shrouds dont really acomplish anything i have tried shrouds on my setup and it didnt do anything .
Try some new good quality fans such as noctua , try different thermal paste or try putting the radiator somewhere else ? i reseated my pump atleast 20 times before i was happy with my results ... Its all trial and error . Iv said it once ill say it again , the h50/70 is not that great out of the box but get some good push pull fans and some decent TIM along with mounting it 100% right u should have really good temperatures.
When i first installed my h50 out of the box , i looked at my temps and was like *** what a waste of money i was idling at around 55c @ 3.5 ghz it was rediculous . Iv played around with it quite abit now got some noctua push pull fans , arctic silver 5 thermal paste n im pleased to say i love my h50 <3 for the measly 150 bucks i payed for it i cant complain .Edited by Xristo - 11/21/10 at 9:05pm
