tear that thing apart and add a res to it.

Wondering what I could get out of some more powerful fans. I moved the original case exhaust fan to side intake, and using the stock fan pull and a Rocketfish fan from Best Buy push exhausting out. Prime95 small FFT tops out at 68C with this setup and a 4.6GHz OC.

Doesn't sound like too bad temps to me... I know the intels generally run a little hotter than the AMD chips under load. One thing you could do to try and improve temps is throw a shroud in there. That would probably be one of the cheapest and easiest things to do.

Did you try using Asus AI Suite? That's what I use to control my 3k Ultra Kaze's and it works well, plus you can set it up to increase fan speed as the temps increase.

I did try that, but if I set it up on silent they still spinning at over 3k, and thats once windows finishes loading, and thats a good 30-45secs of vacuum noise LOL. I'm guessing with a fan controller I will be able to control fan speed from power up and on.

I would assume so. I've never used a fan controller so I don't know for sure. There is a User setting in AI Suite that allows you to set the speed lower I believe. In user you can set up the little graph that shows fan speed corresponding to temperature, so you should be able to set it lower than the Silent setting.

That would be at 20% and its freaking loud LOL. Silent mode nor User mode is working for me. I already ordered a fan controller that will match my case, I'm going to pick it up during lunch time, and instal it once I get back from work, and let you know how it works.

I use the RheoSmart 3. Works like a charm on mine. Though I do have the P/P kit running through the PWM setup. So the MoBo still controls the P/P. I use one of the spare channels to control the bottom fan to the point of being able to shut it off by undervolting it. When I get a couple more fans in Darkside, I'll be hooking them up to the Controller.

What you need to do is make a shroud and replace the fans. Remember Prime95 is a stressor. It's not going to be running 24/7.

I would replace the fans, lapp the block and make a shroud and THEN see what you got going on. Make sure the pipes on your radiator are at their lowest point to guard against stoppage in flow.

I have the H50 but the H70 is supposed to be better than the H50.

One other thing you should do is play around with different locations and Exhaust compared to Intake.

There is nothing wrong with your cooler, near as I can tell anyway.

~Ceadder
Thanks, Ceadderman. I've replaced the fans with GT AP-15s which seem to do pretty good and are quieter. I'm going to see if I can lower my cpu voltage a little more and that might help. I might see if i can change the position of the radiator too.
