I really enjoy the guys that say when you really stress the cpu the H50 blows... not in a good way... LOL. SO WHAT.

Kinda like the green guys popping into the red threads and say na na nanana... green rulzs red drools... (or vice versa)

We like what we like, leave us alone.

If your referring to me I'm not bashing the H50 at all. Its got my E8500 running 4.33GHz 24/7 and keeps it nice and cool. Its just a few people in here speak a little too highly of it and may be giving others too high of expectations of it.

That's the program I use for most testing. It's always worked well for me.
P95 is around 88C as well, maybe a shade lower.
I use Core Temp and HW Monitor to watch the temps.

Something don't sound right if P95 is running almost the same temps as IBT. Every cpu I've ever tested IBT has run much hotter than a P95 though I haven't test an i7 yet. Personally when I run P95 my temps are about 15C lower than my IBT temps. Either way you can't go wrong with the H50 thumb.gif

I don't think anyone in the thread is saying it is bad. I haven't seen any.
There are just a few people trying to point out that someone in this thread is over hyping the performance of it. We don't want people to have high expectations and then come in this thread *****ing about how they only dropped 5c's from an aircooler, but expected 20c's.
And I am not saying 5c's is not a good drop in temps;)

You know, I am going off memory, which usually doesn't fail me, but I could be wrong.

Tonight, I will retest and update here.

If I can drop 5 degrees using IBT I'll be elated.

I think 5 degrees should be doable. Keep us posted after you install it and let us know what fans you went with.

Cpu idle temps are - 22, 29, 26, 21
Load temps - (after 12hours of prime) 51,43,49,43
That's with the fan on lowest setting using the 600T fan controller

That's just ya standard push, no pull.

What fan are you running? It looks like a 38mm to me. I love the drive bay fan. thumb.gif I've been wanting to rig something like that up in my case for a long time.

I'm going to be putting my rig together soon. Does anyone know the best way to mount the h70?

Here's the fan - link

and it was very easy to put that fan, it's being held by double-sided tape haha rolleyes.gif

*Inserts joke about magical hands*

Im not over hyping the performance of anything , iv stated multiple times that the h50 out of the box is nothing better than a good aircooler but change a few things and it could be alot better ..Is that hard for you to understand ?

I have:
*Lapped my cpu and the block of the h50
*Customised the back plate so i can tighten the pump a little more
*Im using as5 thermal compound , not the **** itsu .
*Overvolted my push/pull fans to 24v
*added shrouds
*Air conditioned room

All these things have made a good thing better , i have done prime95 small ftt's at 4.2Ghz and it maxed out at 76c but it bsod on the 6th test so im assuming i need abit more voltage to complete that .. I also tried p95 at 4Ghz and it didnt climb over 68c in blend test ..As far as im concerned thats better than any aircooler on the market .

The h50 has more potential than an aircooler , leave it as that . Im not saying its a miracle cooler im saying its really good for the price and with a few mods it can leave top of the line aircoolers for dead . Simple as that .

Can you source cold air from outside the case with your megahalem copper heatsink stuck to your motherboard :s ? it will have second hand cool air blowing in from a side panel fan or the front intake fans but its always restricted because its in the case and it will never see under case temp and theres nothing you can do about it where as the h50 can be rear mounted as an intake and you get lots of nice cool air straight from outside the case , i could go on all day about this subject but i cbf arguing with little noobs over the internet .

The only thing I'm going to poke at in your reply is that even P95 small fft's don't heat up a cpu like IBT or LinX atleast on any of my test's. Did you run HT on with that test? Your BSOD is most likely a lack of vcore so I'd have to assume to get it stable your temps will also increase with the added voltage. And just so you know AS5 is no longer considered a top TIM anymore. There are much better TIM's out there including the Shin Etsu that comes on the H50 from the factory although they do spread it on a bit too thick.
