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?
I have an awl type tool that I use to remove my pins that I have used for many years the flattened paper clip looks like a good idea.


Also know that not all of the connectors are the same some of them the clips that hold them in place are on top and bottom not on the sides it just depends on the manufacturer of the power supply.

I'd be nervous doing the atx connector. Cuz if you bent a pin you're screwed. I sleeved the others but i never had sleeved these before. I'd rather have someone else do it for me but it costs money and it sucks. I'll eventually need to learn to the rest on a psu unit. There are some wires that look fully lined with two seperate molexs can be confusing how to route it lol. Good Luck!

Stock i7 950 + H50 with gentle typhoon + shroud = 62C prime 95.

Too high?

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.
I dont get it dude it fits perfectly for me... Did u try mounting it with the hoses at the bottom like i said ? If u did that , the screw holes should line up ? I even take the whole thing in and out with the fan underneath still in...The rad just fits snug up there , it does miss the top exhaust fan by a hair but it fits.. i dunno what this problem is your encountering . Can u chuck up some pics of the problem

No ? how do u consider that high if the tj max is 100c , It could be a little lower maxing out in the high 50's under stock speeds but if its running stable then i dont see a concern unless u plan on overclocking one day then ur temps are gonna go through the roof if your hitting 60 on stock.

Hello all, I am new to this forum. I just got my new H70 and am waiting on the rest of my parts to build my new i7 rig. I want to use some of my time before everything else comes to lap the H70. I have scoured the web and even this forum, but I have not been able to find any PROCEDURES for lapping the H70. I understand how to lap, but I do not know what is the best technique for this system. Lapping waterblocks is easy because there are no hoses attached to the block. I am worried about the hoses not allowing my to keep the block perfectly level during the lapping process. I thought I saw on a different forum that one guy took the copper plate off his H50. I did not want to do this until I found detailed instructions because I don't know if doing this will break the water seal.

Please, if you have done this, or know how to, share the knowledge!

Thank you!

I just did it with some fine grit by hand , i didnt get it mirror finish though nor do u need too . It just gives it a nice flat smooth surface to make it flat with your cpu . Its not a mirror for ur cpu to look into when it gets lonely in there..The thermal paste will smear all over ur nice mirrored surface anyway thats just for looks i cant see you getting any better results just because ur block looks like a mirror :s alot of people are spending alot of time making there surface's like a mirror its completely pointless unless someone can prove otherwise ? i wouldnt go taking off the copper plate that just sounds stupid for results ull hardly notice ..what if u fk something up ?

Okayyyy so all these compund videos got me thinking if i shuld redo my TIM , it got the better of me and i did and currently iv dropped it a few degrees it ideling on 34/33/32/31 @ 4.2Ghz =) yet to check prime and cinebench and hopefully it drops after the run in period too.

I used the line method this time , last time i smeared abit over the top in a circle over the HS and did the line method and it did have good temps but after i took it off it looked horrible . Mounting the h50 into the bracket without ruining the paste is a hard job it always smudges and ull never know until u turn ur computer back on and see ur at tjmax!!

Yeah, I haven't even had a chance to turn my new rig on yet *sigh* but I have a bad feeling that I smudged the heck out of the pre-applied thermal compound. Gah! Come on NCIX!!! don't let the snow slow my delivery! I want my RAM! *pout*

hmm, So, if I do need to reapply the grease, what brand is most recommended? I've seen great reviews of Arctic Silver 5, but then I just saw this video. Maybe he didn't do a good job with the arctic silver 5? I don't know. hmmm




After that comes I'll be doing all the installing of windows 7 and drivers and fun of a brand spanking new machine. And then its onward to figuring out what monitor I want. I want something between 19" and 22", 1080, LCD LED 5ms or better... Why am I saying all this in the hydro thread? because I just got home from work and I hate winter... thats why. Now pass me the rum and eggnog!
