Oh also if you're gonna screw it in, please press the cpu seated when doing that and make sure you screw them X shaped because you'd wanna count how many times you screw then leading the heatsink to lay FLAT even.

about the h70:
using it for about a week now and i was hoping to improve temps by using better fans like the ultra kaze, gentle typhoon, and silenx, any tests done about that?
(running an i5 760@4ghz 1.232V) fans connected to a molex adapter and the pump to the power header.
(i now have to boot-up with the cpu fan error everytime -.-)
Without getting too much into because I don't have time....Yes, you will see a 5c(minimum) difference in going from stock fans to something more powerful with better static pressure. My experience was about 7-9c difference with the UK3K's and that is quite significant as I'm trying to push my chip to the brink, hehe.

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.

More info:

Case Antec 902
i7 950
Asus Sabertooth x58
H50
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:
Motherboard 35c
Northbridge: 56c

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?

yep that is way too high for stock frequency and that voltage ..

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? I feel like I have exhausted every option.

did you properly clean the surfaces before applying the new TIM? Did you apply an appropriate amount and ensure the surfaces mated evenly?

What are your ambient temps?

My ambient temps are around 22-23c.

I actually returned my first H50 because a friend told me he thought it was faulty. This second unit I just got is running almost identical temps. Maybe 2c cooler at idle and load. I am currently using their stock thermal paste as I was told its pretty good stuff.

I mounted it very carefully. Using the X pattern to tighten the screws while applying pressure on the unit.

I went out and got some 99% isoprophyl alcohol, and cleaned the CPU pretty damn good before mounting this thing.

Very frustrated at the moment. I can't think of anything else to do. I was planning on getting some nice good fans for it, but right now I don't want to spend any more money on this unit if I cant bring the temps at stock down a bit.

How are you applying your TIM?

Might just be a bad unit .
