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


What kind of temperature reading software are you using? What are your ambient temps? ~65F idle on your processor?

Besides that - mount looks good, grats on your first build, and welcome to OCN!

Antec 620 h20 looks like a h50 with different hoses. Probably another side deal by Asetek. The H60 is a Cool-it (Eco?) with a h50 rad?

The tricky part of unlocking the Phenom II x2's is that after the unlock, it will no longer read each core in any program (apparently it's a common issue). It will read just the whole chip in it's entirety however. I've used MSI Control Center and SpeedFan and some other programs and they all seem to come up with the same temps within a degree or 2 celsius. Ambient is about 65 F during the readings.

BTW-my case sucks for cable management if you couldnt tell.

Hey guys, I recently made some changes regarding my H50; where as originally it was mounting on the rear of my case, running as an exhaust...

Well I decided to experiment a little, and moved the Rad to the front of my Case, mounting it into the 5.25 bays (zip ties!). I removed the shroud from the exhaust side of the rad and mounted my R4 directly onto the Rad, then left the intake Shroud and intake R4 fan as they were.

Then I mounted an R4 that I took off my side panel, and put it directly on the rear of the case to run as exhaust.

I've a remarkable success in that my temps dropped down nearly 8c while idling on the Windows desktop, and under moderate load my temps went down 4c... and under extreme heavy (Prime95) load I've seen a 10 - 12c drop!

However, I am looking in my BIOS at the various fan speeds, and I am curious about something...

Now, the H50 Pump should be plugged into the POWER FAN on the Motherboard...

The intake Fan on the Rad should be plugged into the CPU FAN, on the Motherboard...

Now I have the Exhaust fan on the RAD plugged into CHASSIS FAN 1.

The rear case exhaust Fan plugged into CHASSIS 2.

Now here's my question...

In the BIOS my fan speeds read as follows.

CPU FAN - 1967 RPM
CHASSIS 1 - 1934 RPM
CHASSIS 2 - 1829 RPM
POWER FAN - 1379 RPM

Now remember, CPU Fan is the Intake Fan on the Rad, the Exhaust Fan on the Rad (push/pull) is CHASSIS 2.

There is a good difference of nearly 140 RPM...

Should they not be roughly equal, or is that ok? Or is this just because the Pull/Exhaust Fan on the Rad is just having to work harder and so is running a tad slower?

I think you're right. I have cut a hole in the bottom of my case and added a fan there. The only way for it to get a good air flow is to let the front of my case overhang the front of my desk, otherwise there's no path for it to pull air from.

I've found that if I lay it flat on a table, the RPM of the fan goes down about 100RPM because it can't pull any air, but if I move it forward so it overhands again the RPMs shoot up 100RPM and the air flow really starts moving well.

You could always try swapping chassis fan 1 and chassis fan 2 since the RPM on fan1 seems closer to CPU fan, then you'd know for sure if the replacement fan also slowed down.
