Cant be much below 32C.

I would suggest reseating the block, make sure:
- you use the right screws, the 4 smaller ones out of the 8 provided.
- your pump is running at max RPM, using a fan header on your motherboard that is labelled as a system fan, you can check on speedfan that it is running at 1400RPM (approx.)
- your fan is correctly plugged into the CPU_FAN header
- your Thermal Interface Material has a good coverage, you should not have a problem with the stock thermal tape. But if you are applying your own brand we find that 4 or 5 small dots spread better than one pea-sized drop in the middle
- your waterblock is fully engaged in the little teeth on the ring when you tighten the screws down

If you think you got all those right the first time it's worth reseating anything - sometimes magic just happens.

Good luck.

About 40C.
Does the corsair on the block have to be upright? Mine is upside down; it made the tubing less obstructed.
For push pull, does one fan have to be a higher rpm than the other?

Thanks!

I got mine for $55, but I don't need the AMD bracket. Once I get back to my apartment, I'm probably going to give it away.

Actually, since it IS an H50 backplate, how about I put it up on here right now? I just ask whoever needs it pay shipping, and PM me

From what I've heard, the pull fan should definitely be higher CFM than the push fan if your fans are not matched (but matched fans are the preferred). Also, the radiator can be upside down; in my own case I have the tubes on the top.

I'd check your seating to make sure it's 100% tight, and your thermal paste application. Also, make sure your fans are working, and that the radiator is unobstructed.

Orientation doesent matter, and has been proven here and at the Corsair forums.

Your fans wont matter too much if they are different. As a general guideline try to use the more powerful fan as the push fan. There are some technical ways of working out if your pull fan is slowing down the airflow but you're not likely to encounter this unless you have some 100CFM push fan and a 30CFM pull fan

I dont think so someone clarified this about 60 pages ago. Ill have a look for it.

EDIT: drowsiness is stopping me from finding it, I think it will make very little difference overall anyway.

Would it be safe to put some Indigo Xtreme on the CPU with the H50? I know you can't with the TRUE and the manual says the heatsink/cooler has to fully cover the CPU. Anyone done this or know someone who has?

Thanks.
Ahh!

What should I aim for? At stock speeds it maxes out at 45C.

This will work on a 939 socket right? AM2 and AM3 all use the same brackets I thought

[edit] poop apparently it doesn't. Was going to order it tonight.
