Ok, so I snipped the "grill" out of my case in front of my lower front intake fan and from behind the rear exhaust fan (less resistance bring air in and pulling air out).
The fans are quieter now too. Bonus!

Did some stress testing and my temps decreased across the board.

This screenshot only shows 2 IBT cycles, but I've run over a dozen cycles since the modification but stopped them to do other things on the computer.
The MAX/HIGH listed in HWMonitor and Coretemp are the maximum over all tests because I did not close those programs and those temps only reset after you close the window.

I also want to point out that ambient air temp was 64F on both of these tests.
I have a digital thermometer on my desk that read room temp.

Before:

After:
Temps2.png

Does anyone know why the GFlops is lower in the second run?
Nothing else changed in my setup.

More to come, including a complete "complete" stress test.
I wanted to put this up before the holiday starts. I might not be back at this for a few days.

I get that occasionally as well with IBT. I'm not sure why but I do notice that the lower the glfops the lower my temps are too so keep that in mind when your comparing load temps with IBT.

I get my best gflops results when I kill as many background processes as possible. Maybe the fact that you have coretemp running the second trial set you back.

I got home from a coffee run and found a box on my porch from FrozenCPU.

Opened up and found my new fan inside.

Installation took a couple hours. The push fan I had before was easy since I had it plugged into a mobo header, but the pull fan I was using was the stock exhaust fan on the case, and the power leads were behind the motherboard and connected to a molex on the back side of the motherboard tray, so getting that one out took a while. I set up my Everflow as a pull fan on the exhaust port of my case and fired up my computer... and nothing happened. I didn't even get a POST beep the first half dozen times. Took out all my hard drives, graphics card, wireless card, RAM, and power connectors. Added things one-by-one and eventually got everything put back together without any problems, so I guess I must have knocked something loose when I was messing around with the fan leads.

At full speed (SpeedFan shows 2464 RPM), this thing is blowing a heck of a lot of air out the back of the case (definitely a ton more than I had with my weak push/pull config) and it really isn't too noisy. If I throttle it back a bit, I can't even hear it over my other stock case fans.

Performance summary
Phenom II X4 955BE C2 running 3.78GHz at 1.525 volts
H50 with stock thermal paste and a Cooljag Everflow 9-blade PWM fan
Ambient temps are about 20C.
Case has a couple of slow fans--120mm intake in front of hard drives, 120mm intake on lower slot of side panel, and 140mm exhaust on top--and the PSU exhausting as well.

Fan 100% (2464RPM) and CPU Folding at 100% is giving me 48C (previously was 55C). Fan is kinda noisy at this speed, but not really enough to make me turn up my music or make conversation difficult.

Using Speedfan to set my desired CPU temp to 50C makes this fan run at about 60% (1800RPM) where it is much quieter. It has a low pitch hum but the noise is about equal to the two push/pulls I had before (which would be running 100% to keep the CPU at 58C under these conditions).

Idle CPU (but still at 3.78GHz) with 100% fan (showing 2500RPM now) is around 37C. At 40% (1200RPM) I can't even hear it over my case fans, and idle is still under 40C (mobo went from 23 to 24 and GPU went from 37 to 39 with the reduced airflow).


All in all I'm very happy with this fan and I think it's going to give me exactly the performance I wanted. Only thing left to do is take apart one of those old case fans and make a shroud out of it. I have a POS RocketFish fan on the side panel right now, so I might put the Corsair fan in its place if it has better flow and use the RocketFish as a shroud. I don't think I'll be doing a push/pull with this since the PWM control is too nice (my only remaining header is a 3 pin), and this fan is kinda noisy at full speed. My only regret is not getting the fan leads sleeved by FrozenCPU, since the four wires are just kinda out and about (I used some electrical tape to wrap them and keep them together).

The wire going through my ram is the negative wire off the corsair fan , overvolted .

That sucks. Did you look at any reviews before you bought it? I'm not in the market yet for a video card so I don't know much about the new cards. Oh and by the way that doesn't look like an H50/70 to me lol

I gotta ask but why do you have the noctua fan as an intake right above the 6950's exhaust? That means your sucking in all the hot air back into the your case that the video card is exhausting

Dont get me wrong it is better , much better in dx11 apps like stone giant or lost planet 2 benchmark i gained 20fps but in dx10 like residet evil its on par . I know this is a watercooling thread i just wanted to share my new buyings =D very sexy looking card though

You are right about intaking all that air back in , this 6950's fan goes upto 5000+rpm and blows directly out the back port . I will be switching that fan to exhaust when i can be bothered thanks for the tip.

By the way had my rig dismantled yesterday and did some cable sleeving and decided to give the H50 a shot as a push/pull intake seeing I have a 140mm fan right above the cpu to exhaust the hot rad air. I actually broke a dam fan blade off the 140mm top fan while sleeving it so I had to substitute it with a yate loon low speed 120mm While my case sits under my desk and is less than a foot away from the back wall my core temps took a nice 5C dip under IBT load. Before you go telling me "I told you so" lol my video card temps are taking a hit in the range of 5C higher. I'm running the thermalright HR-03 GT with a fan so even with the card oc'd and the added heat I'm still well below others temps with the same card
