You may want to clean off the H50 and check to see how flat the surface actually is. Corsair will still warranty and encourages for the consumer to lap the H50/H70 since their process would cause huge price hikes if they where to lap each one to a "mirror" like finish.

it is sad to say that the quality of the base plates have been called into question before, and this or getting a replacement unit is Corsairs solution.

An easy test is get some say 1200 grit and take 1 or 2 smooth passes and see if there are any low or high points on the plate. this fine of grit will have no impact if you choose not to actualy lap the H50 yet should give you some sense of how true the plate it.

How tight is everyone tightening the H50 to the cpu? I've got mine on really tight, and I have no issues at all. With my old OCZ Vendetta II, I saw a 3-5C temp difference between cores 3-4 and 1-2. Now with the H50 on tight, I get barely any fluxuations between core temps. Basically only when that core is doing a process the temp rises, otherwise all cores read the same temp.

That is a very relative question If I have 24" biceps tight might be one thing... for the 15 kid who works out with 5lb dumbbells something different... unfortunately I doubt any of us have used a torque screw driver to the recommended spec. (Most fasteners have a spec).

One of these should be used ( ) with a spec to... will find it in a sec... humm they dont mention any thing... perhaps the MB may have a TQ spec on what the cooler should be tight to... I think if you follow the guide though that comes with it you will have it tight enough...

I thought about using my torque wrench, but without torque specifications from Corsair, its kind of moot. I mean I've got mine on so tight, that you'll either strip the screw head or break the motherboard if you get it any tighter.

Hey guys I am getting the H70 to replace my Thermalright Ultra 120, and since I used two fans on my Thermalright (Delta fan, max 5200rpm, and an Ultra Kaze fan, 3000 max rpm), if I were to use those two fans on the radiator for push pull configuration, which one is better to 'push', and which one is better to 'pull'?

Is it not advisable to use fans with different rpm on heatsinks/radiator?

Which configuration would be better for my case, rear intake/rear exhaust, considering that I have two crossfire 6850 dumping heat into the case, and also the option to change the direction of airflow of a 20mm side panel fan?

Is there anybody in this club has upgraded to the H70 from the Megahalems or NH-D14 and have no regrets for doing so? I'm thinkin' about buying the H70 w/ (2) GT-AP15's and having a 25mm duct between one of the fans and radiator. Am I thinkin' wisely about this setup or should I reconsider my selection of fans?
post #15727 of 28303
Hey guys im sure one of you guys had a H50 and upgraded to an H70..................is it worth it? is there any better performance? I have one cause it was on a boxing day sale for $65 after rebate $79 before and i have a few day before being able to return it......

Right now on my sig rig when gaming on real temp it hits in low 60s to mid 60s i would like to hit in around 60 i want a difference of 3-6degrees will it give me that?

On my H50 i have a push/pull with scthye kazes 110cfm and i want to plan on using them for the H70.

RPM is not as important as the static pressure value. I would say which ever fan has the better static pressure put that as the push and the other as the pull. I have different fans as many people here do and have no issues. Shoruds will help if you have room even more to remove dead spots.

It depends on what all else is going on as far as location of intake or exhuast. if you have the tower in a corner or some tight place and you still have a case fan exhausting and PSU exhausting out the back I dont think you would see much of a difference between intake and exhaust configurations from the rear... the best is always to do an intake from the front, that usualy has the cool air with out any thing else dumping.

What do you use your PC for? and when you doing what ever you do are the 6850's running hot? what are their temps? I would say top exhaust and get an extra rear exhaust like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811995027 (out of stock but find something similar) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...0Case%20Cooler

and have it exhaust out the top.

I think you're messing the air up creating a vaccum. I have the same tower as you and all my fans in front are intakes and all my rear fans even on the H70 is exhaust.

I wonder what are your idle and load temps even gaming?
