I am using their TIM. It came installed on the unit. And this is my second one, with almost identical temps.

You said you reseated and cleaned off the CPU, I thought?

You can't reuse that same TIM.

Sorry if I was unclear. I have had 2 different H50s. I reseated the first one, and when that didnt help I returned the H50 and got a new one. This new one is currently seated with the stock compound.

H70:

Is there any install and TIM tips? I have just been doing the old grain of rice method on my proc but I wonder if you need more then that and if you should put TIM on both the proc and cooler?

Also is the best fan arraignment to bring air in to the case or to take air that is in the case and blow it out the back intake vs. exhaust.

I am using the stock fans and just wondering if there are better ones and what you would recommend and at what percent (100% with stock fans is just too loud).

Thanks.

Not sure what fan speeds you have set, but try running the top fan at m, and the rear fan at h,...you may need to add a side fan blowing in as it seems the rad is not cooling very well. Have to agree with the other posts though,...sounds like it isn't seated properly.

question for you H70/50 users... im looking into a push pull exhaust setup kinda like... pull fan>shroud>case wall>radiator>shroud>push fan... with GT 1850's. So onto the question, I'm looking into getting a CM HAF 932 but like other CM cases it has the mesh bump out behind the 140mm stock fan. How are you guys overcoming this bump out.. like wouldn't it interfere with mounting against the back of the case?

well... no the HAF-X is the same way, and its not the mesh im woried about its how it protrudes from the back of the case, just like alot of other cases. I'm just not sure i see how you can mount up against it, like it wouldnt be flush.

I have tried changing all my fan settings, except for the Corsair fan thats pushing on the Radiator. It there is no change in CPU temps. Some high and some Med, all High, all low, some high others low.

I am not sure how it could be seated improperly, as I was very careful, and followed the Corsair video very closely.

Do you guys think I should replace the Stock TIM with Arctic Silver 5?
post #15110 of 28311
I have a question guys, i got a H70 arriving Wed and i know it always comes with the tim applied already, as you can see i already currently own the H50 but knowing that it comes with the tim and it is spread a bit wide.

Do you think i'd have to wipe of the edges since they are too big and applied too wide to install it or leave it alone? I always weight the decision if i should use Artic Silver 5 on my H70 but i know the Shin is such a good tim. Why do they always spread it too wide? What if it gets on the other parts around by the processor cuz the tim is a bit wide but i dunno how it looks on the H70 compared to the H50?


Advice?
