post #14751 of 28298
I want to change up my setup a little and I'm considering selling my Megahalems and getting a H70. From what I understand the H70 may lag a little behind the Megahalems in temps (depending on fan config) but lets face it, most ~4Ghz overclocks these days aren't heat limited. I've got a couple nice fans with high static pressure so I would likely use a single fan to cut down on noise.

I will be upgrading the rest of my system to i7/Thuban in the next 2-3 months so the H70 will be going on that too...

H70 or stick with Megatron?
At long last...

Only consider the sidegrade if you need the ram clearance, otherwise the H70 will probably only shave 2 or 3C off your current temp anyways...

Or if you prefer a cleaner look (some people like the large heatsink look, my brother loves his TRUE black with dual fans, to each his own ^^)... the whole "smaller, same performance as a high end air cooler, cleaner look" was a huge selling point for me, for some maybe not, but that part is a hugely opinionated area

Actually, scratch that, an H70 really should utilize two fans due to the fact it had a thick rad... I don't know if you'll gain anything at all without using both fans :\\

^ Nice 240 rad you got there. It makes me wanna switch. lol



Edit: btw, I cleaned up that spreadsheet and also rearranged the fan spreadsheet in alphabetical orders. Hope you guys don't mind.

Re:fan spreadsheet - no problem with that at all. Thanks for spending the time in cleaning it up.

You're welcome, Seth. Figured it's the least I can do for our beloved thread & community.

I'm in. Here is my new set-up. Please excuse the quality of the pics.....taken with my phone.

Rig in Sig.

Temps @ stock currently (will overclock soon, just got the rig back together)

Idle: 28*C
Load: 39*C
Ambient: 22.2*C

How are the temps?

If you were at a "normal" room temp of 20C that would mean you'd have 28 C idle and 48 C load which is much more reasonable though still a bit high for a stock 955 (i.e. perhaps 2 degrees off). In other words I wouldn't be overclocking with those ambient temps or even benchmarking at stock too much. Don't worry about it for normal operation though.
P.S. My god man...get some friggin air conditioning!!!!!
Thanks guys, I'll probably reseat with AS5, add a shroud and 1 or 2 fans to intake more air into the casing. I only rent the place, not eligible for an aircond upgrade.. thx again

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 .

Pics seem fine (first one's a little blurry). I mean we've seen worse. lol Also your temps seem about right but then again I don't have an AMD chip.
