I just put an H50 in my media pc.

Not overly impressed with the temps. I'm using the stock fan and an Arctic Cooling F12 in a push pull config.

3.8ghz on an i5 760 at 1.22vcore and temps seem pretty high under prime?

Is that normal? Seems like a little hot to me. I've search the net but I cannot get a correct answer since everyone's temps is on overclocked speed.

That's far higher than I got on my stock H70 on idle prior to modding it. Sounds like there could be a few issues. I'd definitely upgrade the fan(s), and if you're only using one fan, I'd recommend adding a second for push-pull. Also, did the waterblock/pump seat cleanly? If you had any problems seating it, or the screws weren't tightened down properly, it may have left air pockets in the TIM, which would reduce cooling ability. Also, you want to make sure that the header the pump is plugged into is running it at max speed, not variable speed.

I noticed that my temps are a lot better after modding my H70. I can't say how much difference is from the new fans, and how much is from lapping the waterblock/pump; but I've gotten a roughly 8C degree temp drop at idle; and at least that much under load.

Yeah, That's what I figure. I will recheck everything and keep what you said in mind. I'm sure it's not normal coz I know people that have lower temps on air. Right now, I'm still looking for some screws that I can use for another fan. It's not installed right now so yeah, I can fresh install the unit again. Thanks for the tip.

Temperatures on an i7-970 are not particularly comparable to an AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black. I would not worry so much about idle temps.

Load temps are the ones that matter, and even then are not accurate, but at least tell you how far from cpu throttling you are.

Reported Temperature = TJMax minus the Digital Thermal Sensor reading

TJMax is said to be 100. Is this correct? The truth is that there is no documented correct value. All software is guessing.
Quote:
The only documentation ever published by Intel calls this value TJ target and they've said that this is not a fixed value. It can and does vary from one CPU to the next with the same model number and in my testing it also varies from core to core on the same CPU. Your core 1 reading much lower than the other 3 is a good indication of that.

These sensors are designed for thermal throttling and thermal shut down control and are accurate enough for those purposes. For any other purpose like accurate temperature reporting, the 45nm Core 2 Duo/Quad sensors are crap with a long list of known issues. 100% accurate temperatures from these undocumented sensors from idle to TJMax is simply not possible.
That's from UncleWeb on Xtremesystems who wrote RealTemp
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=179044

Not much change in Intel chips after that.

Will this be upgraded to the H50/60/70 club soon?

Also, I noticed the stock fans for the H60 are considerably better than the H50 fans. 75cfm, 30dba and something like 3.6mmH2O. How would you get a 2nd stock fan? They seem pretty ideal. Otherwise I'm just gonna go with some S-Flex fans

yeah exactly it makes a gurgling noise every so often, then just stops almost completely silent after noise subsides.

just as i suspected, i changed the thermal paste from the white kind to the grey kind, and changed fans around, from the stock h50 fan in the back, to moving it to the front, and a coolermaster green led i think it's like 90 something cfm, in the back and the stock fan in the front, and before my max @ load was like frightening 51, and now the max is 45!!!!!!!! and im folding -smp on all 4 cores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i also forgot to mention that i have a pci card slot vantech double fan that i moved from under my 5770, to moving the 5770 to the bottom pci slot and moving the card fan to the top.

Hi guys. I'm building a new i5 SB system, and was pretty much ready to grab a D14 until I saw the H50 on sale @ Best Buy the other day and just had to bust out my coupons and get it for $35. It was 100% impulse buying... I didn't think anything until I got home, now i'm all kind of confused confused.gif. Does this cooler do a moderate job with a 2500k @4.2-4.5Ghz? I'm not too crazy about low low low temp, just a safe max during gaming and some headroom for the summer. Does setting it up for exhausting through the rear decrease performance by a lot? I have a San Ace G9 i'm gonna pull out of the current system that i'd love to find use for. I suppose it should be the Push fan? a Kaze 3k for Pull is ok? Will I have a lot of trouble mouting 38mm fans?
I apologize if these questions have all been answered, but I set up the forums for 100 posts/page and there are still 168 pages... my eyes are getting blurry and I can't concentrate when reading anymore frown.gif
H50 veterans please help

Ok, so first build ever. Originally with my phenom's stock heatsink, i was running 27C on idle and around 56C on 100% load. This was not OC'ed at all. I did however unlock the 2 latent cores on my Phenom. I dropped this bad boy in there and turned into push pull, and all of a sudden im at 18C idle and 34C fully loaded for an hour. WOW!

Thats a 23C drop in temps...that's ridiculous
