I am not too worried about those temps on load, mainly because I usually game and encode video, with occasional leisure photo editing. I don't stress my CPU that much in real-world usage. I am quite excited though, because I have 2x GT ap-15 fans on the way(possible fan controller too), and I will get a chance to re-seat the block with my own new ShinEtsu TIM. I am pretty sure the mixture of the new TIM/reseat and fan upgrades, I will net at least 4-5C drops on idle and up to 8-9C drops on load.

Does anyone think that 1.35V on my CPU is a bit high? I was thinking about testing a bit on a little bit lower to see if I see better temps/same stability.
a bit highly. i recommend you get the best clock @ 1.27 voltage. for me is 3.6ghz

I didn't keep 4.0GHz figures, but 4.2GHz was stable at 1.3125v for my setup.

Anyone in here interested in custom metal shrouds? I could construct to your desired size, i.e. 120.1, 120.2.... 140.1. Standoff would be about 28mm to dial in the sweet spot and allow for anti-vibration gaskets. They would be made of fully welded aluminum or steel.

If there is enough interest, I'll make some models and prototypes. If I could get a volunteer to run some testing for me (I'm without an H50), then you could keep it as a gift.

I have two 140mm exhust fans at the top my case (Tempest evo). If I happen to get either the h50/h70, Should I be good if the fans on the h50/70 are install as an intake?

EDIT: I added CFM and dBA headers into the Fan List Google spreadsheet. It's obvious what the column is, but it's more clarifying when labeled.

If you want lower CPU temps then install it as an intake, just as long as the rear of your case is getting fresh air. If it's stuck next to a wall or an enclosed space, all the heat from your PSU and GPU will be sucked in, causing higher temps. If it isn't getting much fresh air, then stick to exhaust.

Good thing with intake is that you're leaning more towards positive air pressure, meaning less dust.

All modern case designs are positive pressure even with the back being exhaust. A lot of setups don't benefit from going with rear intake because of other things like video cards and power supplies venting hot air right below where the H50/70 should be getting cooler air. Unless you switch other fans around or have big changes on CFM on your exhaust fans compared to your intake fans with front/side being intake and rear/top being exhaust you should still maintain a positive pressure case while sticking with the ideal cooling setup for all components in your case not just one component.

There was zero change in the temps of intake or exhaust when my H50 was at the rear of my case but it raised the temps of all my other components by almost 10C so not really worth it.

The best suggestion is to try both see what works best for your particular setup. Don't just look at the one temp of your CPU look at all temps of your video cards and HDD's and any motherboard temp sensors you have too. Keeping one item a few C cooler at best isn't worth raising the temps of everything else in your setup and causing undue stressing.

how do you think these fans would do for the h50.i am trying to find a fan that matches my color scheme of blue and black with better flow than the stocker h50 fans/

Got the H70 Friday, hardest thing ever to install lol.. Stupid metal things that go into the mobo back plate keep coming out even after the click.. I had to push in with screwdriver on them while tightening with another.. sigh what a pain..


Have it setup as exhaust, tried both ways this one works better lowers cpu temps a little and also mobo temps, have dual 140mm fans intaking air on top for it, 140mm side fan pulling excess air out.. also seems alot less noisy as exhausting as compared to intaking set up.. About 5c improvement over CM 212+ on idle but a good 8-10c on loads for me..

gonna try my CM R4-L2R-20AC 120MM Blue LED in next day or so to see if there any better or worse then stock push/pull.. Had 2 of them on my Cm 212+...

You know you can hide and route those cables from the hole to the header? Even tuck in the black wire. Sorry but it looks scary when it comes to your cable management. Also why are you making the fan as intake? You're fighting air in that case now with pressure like that. Make the fans set to exhaust.

Also you can mount that on top rear instead of above your video card, now all that heat is gonna travel to your H70 rad eventhough you set it as intake on that fan anyways. I bet your temps are a little awkward
