With the temps I'm getting now with my TRUE black using that stuff and the rice grain method, I don't wanna mess too much with that formula

Never heard of them. Will have to take a look. Thanks!

Its a common misconception that more airflow means better cooling when it comes to cpu cooling which isn't always the case. Take Gentle Typhoons for instance. They are great rad fans cause they have a good static pressure not because they flow a lot of cfm's. They actually don't flow much cfm's compared to other 120x25mm fans but their static pressure makes up for the difference when used on a rad.


So right back at ya
Very good point--I hadn't really considered the static pressure measurement. Unfortunately, I have no idea what the values are for the fans I have in my case now, so I guess I'll have to do a bit of research to see what would be a good improvement.

Touch the cooler at the base near the CPU while the CPU is idling and see if it feels any warmer than room temperature (touch the metal on the outside of your case or something similar for comparison). Protip: Watch out for sharp spinny things like fan blades.

Ok , did as you suggested and the pump feels the same temp as my side panel . Pump is not warm at all . In reality though the pump is going to produce heat one way or another and it will always be just a tad warmer than ambient temps because its an electrical component with moving parts and due to the fact its inside the case not outside in ambient temps =)

Even so its highly unlikely that you would idle right at ambient with an h50/70. Considering temps inside your case would be at minimum 3-4C higher than ambient and that is where your rad is mounted (i assume lol). If your cpu has a faulty sensor then even the mobo would read inaccurate idle temps cause thats where it gets its readings from. If your temps seem too good to be true they just might be. Like you stated before your temps seem super cool compared to other i7's. Its just food for thought. If your comfortable with your temp readings and feel they are 100% accurate then thats really all that matters

They are not facts, and they do lie. This topic has been covered many times in this thread. Idle temps are NOT accurate. That doesn't mean you haven't done a good job, it just means idle temps especially are not accurate, because of the way CPU temps are "measured".

Quote:
More than a few programs have been released over the last few years, each claiming to accurately report these DTS values in real-time. The truth is that none can be fully trusted as the Tjunction values utilized in these transformations may not always be correct. Moreover, Intel representatives have informed us that these as-of-yet unpublished Tjunction values may actually vary from model to model - sometimes even between different steppings - and that the temperature response curves may not be entirely accurate across the whole reporting range. Since all of today's monitoring programs have come to incorrectly assume that Tjunction values are a function of the processor family/stepping only, we have no choice but to call everything we thought we had come to know into question. Until Intel decides to publish these values on a per-model basis, the best these DTS readings can do for us is give a relative indication of each core's remaining thermal margin, whatever that may be.

Uncle Web, who wrote RealTemp has spoken about this SO many times:

A little bit of Google searching will soon tell you the same.

A cpu temp lower than ambient defies the laws of physics. It is not possible through air or water cooling without refrigeration.

Yeah , i get where your coming from . But then i again i think i have spent thousands on the computer and i have spent alot of my time playing around with this h50 trying out fans , different thermal pastes and positions for the rad . Im not saying they are 100% accurate because they might not be , but under the current circumstances i cant see why it cant be true . If my comp was old and worn out id probably agree with you but the thing is only a few months old and iv taken pride in my computer i always do things properly and the outcome is a good result =) i think the h50 is capable of more than what people think , dont underestimate .. the h50 is an awsome cooler in the right hands =D

dont you have a thermal paste remover?
if you dont then just a couple drops of alcohol and wipe it off with a tissue
add a couple more drops if needed until you completely remove it
