post #16001 of 28251
Depends on ambient temp, but for i7-920 (DO stepping) maybe 70 to 75? Anyone do better?

as5 has a cure time - takes a couple of days before its at its best. Nothing wrong with stock shin-etsu tim except maybe too much of it. More in the mounting. Make sure all indents and dents match on the mounting ring, and then do up evenly a bit at a time in criss cross pattern. (not one at a time) Also not all H50 are flat - google for "lapping" and maybe try that as well. There's a vid on youtube showing what to do. You can test for flatness by passing steel ruler over base and looking for light between ruler and surface. If there is light it's not flat.

post #16003 of 28251
So, I have seen many reviews, but I would like you guys' opinion.. Is the switch from my Megashadow push/pull to the H70 worth the money and the temp change?

Ummm no. that would be a really bad idea. the mega is suppose to perform on par with the h50 and h70.

How is that a really bad idea ? h70 would put it all over the megashadow .. you like have 1+kg hanging off your mobo ? im an h50 owner and let me just say i wouldnt swap my h50 for 2 megashadows . Max oc on my cpu and i still dont hit 75c in prime 95 small ftt's ..

h70 all the way mate .

corsair H series respond extremely well to lapping , as5 and higher static pressure fans . Once you have all that done you wont even look at the megashadow again .

looks at sig.

laughs about corsair calling the h70 high performance.

the h70 is about 5 -8c cooler then the mega only with high performance fans. meaning that it is only better when the fans are either expensive, or loud.

I get 43c max load with my setup.

so in turn spending 60 dollars plus cost of fan on a mega then spending 90 or so dollars on an h70, you could have bought a Rasa 750 RS360 kit to start with.

We know its not as good as a full blown watercooling system , obviously .. I would still personally pick the hydro cooler over the old school heatsink style megashadow for lots of reasons and i think with a few mods it wil out do it easily .. but its all personal preference i guess , my cpu never idles over 42c at 4.3Ghz and i could be literally dripping sweat from my armpits in 30c heat yet it wont budge over 42c idle .. Imo thats very good , cant see a megashadow doing this .

*Updated*The Official Megahalem vs H50 Battle Royale Results

Mega Shadow is "improved" megahalems and remember
Quote:
2x Ultra Kaze 3k @ 100% Push/Pull used on mega and H50
in that test.

If you want to spend money to get better temps I think it would be a sideways move going from a Mega Shadow to a H70. The Rasa kits are a better use of the money if better temps are the point of changing.

Well guys this will likely be my last post on this forum. As stated earlier finally made the switch to a full water cooling loop from my beloved H50 and holy crap!!! I got the XSPC 750 RX360 for $199 plus added some better tubing and compression fitting, fired it all up and did a temp comparison. Before temp at 20C ambient was 29 idle and 54 max load with 1.5 volts to the CPU at 4.020 Ghz. With everything exactly the same the temps are now 27 idle and 43 max load (1 hr prime 95) Wow I am impressed and totally happy. Here are some pics.
