If used properly(which your right there is too much to be used properly to begin with) it is the best. It is easy to work with put on a rubber glove "ball up" all of the stock TIM and split it in half then re-apply you will get the same or better temps than any other TIM on the market today as long as you mount properly.

If the proper amount was applied to begin with then there wouldn't be as many problems with it but if you plan ahead since everyone knows there is too much then you not only get the best TIM you can buy but you have enough you can use it for another CPU/GPU.

I wasn't going to post again but I just had to report this. I got more air bubbles out of my system and ran prime 95 again for another hour. Just to reiterate the before temps with my H50 puch/pull with shrouds, front intake and 38mm 2,000 rpm fans was 29 idle and 54-55 C max temp at 20 C ambient. So what is the new temps now? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.........24 C idle and 41 C max temp!!!! Here is the proof: I just love this system. Best $199 I ever spent!! That's all for me guys good luck with your H50 and H70s

How frequently does one have to service a full water loop?
post #16024 of 28249
once or twice a year provided that you only use distilled water with pt nuke or something like that XD

Question? (please link if already answered :-) )

On initial start up in the morning, when everything is cold, I get the CPU fan error, "press F1" to continue. This is occurring (I believe) cause my CPU has not generated enough heat to cause the fan to spin faster then 600RPM, thus making the error message. After total boot up, my CPU fan speed indicator on my desktop showing fan speed will run "RED" (550RPM Range) until everything warms up causing the fan speed to increase to over 600RPM's.
I know I can disable some setting in the BIOS and that will clear the message, I don't want to do this because then the fan runs full blast, which I feel is unnecessary when my system is just idling.

Is there any way of setting the default speed below "600" to stop this error message? Or is this just typically what happens after you buy and aftermarket cooler? Nothing is wrong with any of my equipment, I just get annoyed by the warning message

Thanks :-)

put the socket somewhere other than cpu fan
put it in opt fan1 or casefan1 or psufan or something else other than cpu since it is the delicate one?
what exactly do you have hooked up to the cpufan header?

The pump should be hooked to a fan header that is always fully on. and the rad fan should be hooked to the CPU fan header.
post #16028 of 28249
pump should be hooked up to a 3pin connector or you could use a socket to connect it directly to the power supply
the fan could be connected anywhere really

The fan on the radiator is 4 pin, the instructions said to plug it into the CPU socket. I have the pump on Cha_Fan 2. I have no other 4 pin connectors on my mobo unless I rig something up.
So I take it there is no way to change it to a lower setting?

I take it that is because of algae build up, does black tubing cure that problem of flushing twice a year?
