Hey guys, new H50 owner here.
I was hoping you guys could help me out. I feel like my temps are a decent bit to high for what they should be, but I could use some more opinions.
I have the H50 set up in a push/pull with the stock Corsair fan pushing, and an Antec case fan pulling. I know having two different types of fans is not optimal, but I wanted to test the push/pull.
I currently have the H50 set up exhausting out the back, not intaking, but I have tried both setups. I tried both with a single fan set to push also. I even tried moving the rad and fan out of the case, to make sure it wasnt ambient temps or air congestion inside the case. There was no real change.
I have also reseated the contact and again no change in temps.
The above image was taken while running Prime95.
Case Antec 902
Asus Sabertooth x58
12bg Corsair XMS3
EVGA GTX 460 768mb
Corsair HX 850
I currently have the 2 front fans intaking, my big top fan exhausting.
My CPU is idling at 39-40c and while running Prime95 its 66-68c. Most of the time I idle around 40c, and the second I start Prime95 it jumps up by 20c instantly, then slowly climbs another 7 or 8 over 5 to 10 minutes. That seems a bit high for only stock speeds. I wanted to OC, but I dont feel like with the current temps that would be a great idea.
The pump is running at 1300-1400rpm and the Corsair fan is running around 1600rpm.
Other system temps:
As I said I would like to start OCing the system, but from other temps posted by people it seems mine is about 10 - 20 degrees hotter than most other peoples. Am I just being to anal or is this really running hotter than it should?
