just curious the H70 surface area is quite big...

when I am reapplying a thermal paste.. do I have to apply on the entire H70 surface or just put a drop on the i7 chip and let pressure spread itself.

I found the line and light smear method to be most effective .

Same put a tiny pea , smudge it in a circle over the head spreader nice n even and do a very thing layer it shuld still be semi transparent .. than do a very thin line across the heat spreader and screw your pump on each screw a few turns at a time while pulling on the pump so its level with the bracket and to be made sure its slotted in to the grooves.. dont just go full horse on 1 screw it will cause it to be uneven . Thermal paste can be a real ***** to get right sometimes =( but ull figure it out budz just like i did.

The key with the H50 is to hold the pump as still as you can once you have it down on the cpu by hand with decent pressure while tightening each bolt down gradually in an X pattern to ensure even pressure. I've had good luck with the rice sized dot right in the middle of the cpu but I've noticed with the H50 using the correct amount of tim is key.

Linus tech tips. I like his video's and he's a local Vancouverite! (not that the last part matters as to his skill and knowledge.) Its an older video though using stock coolers, but you see the proper techniques.

As for how it spreads, this is a well done video I thought:

Cable management wasn't that bad could use a little work but compared to what I have seen over the years you did a great job. If you have any questions or just want to know what to do or how to do something feel free to ask.

Giving someone just a negative on their work is not the way to "teach". Not everyone here has been working with computers for 30+ years or even 1 year so not like you can expect perfection from anyone. You assumed they where done when they made no mention of if they where or not so again no reason to just judge and give negatives. Everyone should be here to assist any way they can without making someone else feel bad about their work or at least it is what I try to do.

Dont laugh at me...

Here is some advice, dont cool your radiator below 0C.

We purchased ice cream from somewhere and got dry ice to take it home with us, I then put the remaining dry ice on my radiator to try to hit 5Ghz. I'm not sure what the problem was but I couldnt get past 4.8. But after about 10 minutes I hurt clicking coming from the block. Apparently the coolent started to freeze!

I turned it off immediatly and it works fine, but I would suggest you wont try that!

Has anyone tried mounting the H50 in a Antec 1200 on top rear exhaust fan? I managed to do it but it's time consuming and a HEADACHE! Cuz the holes won't line up on your exhaust fan holes with the regular fan attached to it. It's the gap of the rad bumping to measure it right. Worst of all the width of the rad blocks the side panel.

I managed to get it to screw it but i'm only using 1 screw on my side panel cuz the top is a SMALL SMALL gap due to rad. I'm concerned if i get H70 it won't fit once i install my new i7 build but i am having second thoughts of getting a new case, i'd hate the idea of doing that. I also have seen pictures of the H50 or H70 mounted on top inside the ANTEC 1200 somewhere and i have NO clue how in the world you can do that?

Is there something in the case we can put on top inside like that or does that require modding? Ugh.. I'm almost tempted to try the Antec Dark Fleet or HAF cases.. undecided. I just want airflow to regulate right. I used to have it as intake using a fan bracket it works but i didn't like the idea of blocking my airflow.

car, thanks for taking the time to at least look at the pics. As for taking the time to do my cable management, I've got a sleeving kit here that I'll be trying to install with a friend. That was definitely a temp fix just to use the comp, not to look pretty. I got the frozencpu white sleeve kit, and managed to do one of the molex sets so far, but the other pins like the ones on the pcie and the atx connector refuse to come out! I'm wondering what i'm doing wrong? tried the staple trick, tried using paper clips, tried the tools that came with the kit, but no go.. is it juts my luck?
