Hey guys! I ran into a little trouble when I installed my H70 yesterday. Here's some info crossposted from my thread in Air Cooling:

I quit the test immediately when Core Temp registered about 85 and climbing.

Obviously I screwed something up applying my H70. It idles fine at around 40 Celsius, and I played an hour and a half of Bad Company 2 with my 6870 Twin Frozr, and the highest I hit was about 65 iirc. Did anyone else have trouble applying the H70 with the Intel bracket? I had to loosen up the top side of the bracket so I could get enough clearance to actually fit the block on the processor and under the retaining clips, and then screw it back down again. Otherwise no matter how hard I pressed, I couldn't fit the waterblock clips underneath the clips on the retainer bracket! I'm gonna go pick up some new thermal paste today and try it again. Anyone have recommendations for paste?

Also, I hooked my GTs up to a fan controller, and I noticed it really makes no difference to my idle temps whether they're running full-on or as low as they can go. I can definitely feel a difference in airflow coming out of them, but my temps are in the low 40s regardless.

According to the instructions, that's what you are supposed to do. (Have the bracket loose enough to fit the block)

Then you have to make sure dents and notches match up correctly, and do the retaining screws up equally, a bit at a time for each, until tight. (Not one at a time...)

It is not idle temps that matter. It is load temps. It's a fussy mounting, lots of bits to assemble first too. There is a bit too much paste as supplied, even though it is good quality paste. Any good quality paste should be fine. I use MX3.

Some ppls seem to have to reseat them a few times before temps are satisfactory.

your temps shouldn't be that high at idle imo. have you tried a reseat? the easiest way i found to put on an h50/70 is to just barely start the screws enough that they hold the bracket on loosely, then put it in and tighten each corner one turn at a time in an x until its tight.

I managed to line up my rad this time.. if you read previous posts i posted in few pages i had problems having my rad fit.. turns out the screws were not lined up and i'm so glad it didn't hit the fan rad fins. I got it to lined up.
The problem mostly was the fans There was a gap that's blocking me from fully sliding in my side panel to fit BOTH holes in.. They were too wide causing me not to be able to close the top of my side panel. But since i managed to line it up i can close it but the top is NOT fully CLOSED but better than last time.

Cuz the last time i had it installed the screws were hitting the metal thing not the hole.

The fans that hold these are the only way to make it fit i would need smaller fans. Blah. Thinner fans. I don't have time for that and it fits for now. Maybe one day i'll consider getting a new different tower. I wonder if the Dark Fleet is any good. I always wanted a HAF case but meh..

antec 1200 ftw i dont know what case you think is going to be better , glad u got it in finally but . I dont know how the fans are giving you problems with lining up the holes .. What fans u using ? im still scractching my head as to why you cant get it all in 100% it fits for me... does your mobo have any heatsinks that are in the way of the rad and fans? mine has a little gigabyte heatsink on the side of my rad but its like 2cm off touching it.

If you want to fix it 100% throw some pics up of the problem areas and we might be able to help u out .

It's the fans man.. i'm running the regular antec fan and master cooler on the front as a pull in air to exhaust. I did experiemented and realized a smaller fan makes everything fit easier and gap is so away from the side panel but unfortunately i rather use the case's fan and the master cooler fan.

It's gotta be the fans. They wouldn't line up the holes when i attach them cuz they are by an 1/2 inch off lining up.

I wish there is a three way switch for those fans like the antec on the rear exhaust i have so i can slide it in the box next to it to adjust fan speed or i'll have to find really good fans that thin like the H70 had and use it but meh.. it's fine for now.

Maybe down the road i'll change fans and it'll be fine.

Your issue is truly strange. I was able to mount my H50 to the rear of my 902 without any problems. I am using 2 Yate Loon Highs on the H50 and moved the rear Antec Tricool to my side panel. I was still able to put my side panel on though.

See what i mean? Your YATE Loons are thin. The fans are smaller dude. The Antec tri fans are not. I rather not use the fans the H70 came with cuz i like a higher cfm that's why and that's the problem.. not strange at all. read again.

Hi mates

I recently bought an H70 ,was happy for some days as my exams were going on for 8days.In-between got time & mounted H70 replacing Venomous-X ,i never really checked temps those 8days.Exams were over & the temps are same as Venomous-X man ,this is really crap.It was already decided that I will lap my 950 when the prices fell ,so i lapped my 950 & now again checked there was just 1-2c difference.My ambient temps are 20-22c ,yes its winter here & the temps on my 950 with h70 are not going down .

I really like to bench my 950 at 4.6ghz with HT on & the temps with that setting were 90-94c with Venomous-x ,like 1 month back & now h70 is performing like crap the temps reached 100c all cores .

Now the idle temps are 36-41c between all cores and ambient 22-24c.

Help me out mates.What should be done now?
