post #1511 of 28247
I transfered my rig from my Scout to my new Lian-Li case and went WC with the H-50 from another rig, my cpu temp only dropped 2 degrees from my Megahalems running only 1 fan at idle, my ambiant temp for both temp readings is 23c.
The odd thing is my gpu temp, with both my Scout and my Lian-Li I ran a fan in the 5.25 bay, the Scout I had the CM R-4 and the Lian-Li I have the Noctual 140mm fan, my temp went from 44c to 35c, I'm hopeing when my MX-3 sets up my cpu temp will drop even more.

MX-3 doesn't cure, so you should be getting near enough the best temp you should from MX-3 from the get-go.

Given the H50 is still considered by many (not me) a "budget" WC, that is an achievement in itself. What temps where you expecting?

Passion Fruit is right, MX 3 doesn't need time to cure,,, its as good as it gets

Nice setup with your rig, BTW

xquisit if you have 3 open drive bays, put a fan in for intake. Put your H50 in exhaust. For you case and GFX cards your H50 should be in a exhaust setup. Next try a shroud, buy one or make it. You could try putting the shroud and one fan on the outside of your case, like I did. Check out the The Official Corsair H50 Accessory Permalink for some of the stuff I recommended.

Pings, I had mine setup like yours (fan in the drive, but I moved it closer to the front). I will definitely try exhaust now, but I had a question for you:

My friend installed my H50, and he applied thermal paste like this

1) Put grease on the CPU
2) Spread/Flattened with a business card
3) applied the extra thermal paste to the H50
4) Added the H50 to the CPU


Did he do it wrong?

Personally, I'd skip step 3, as with TIM too much is not good. TIMs may transfer heat well, but they're no substitute for direct metal contact.
