post #18091 of 28467
I'm running the H70 with the two stock fans with cooling limitations in the BIOS disabled.

I have to say I am really not too impressed with the performance it offers for what I paid. I paid close to $110 and it keeps the 2600k around 75-78 C for 4.5 with 1.375v.

Really it depends on your setup/rig. If you have a well ventilated case, you can run it in either direction (intake or exhaust) and get the same results. Try it both ways and see what works best for you. In my rig, either exhaust or intake makes no noticeable difference, so I chose to run as exhaust.

I understand that part, but my question is does the stock fan do better PULLING out the exhaust or PUSHING out the exhaust

Ah, yes now I understand. Push configuration with the stock fan. I would suggest you ditch the stock fan at some point. If you decide to swap fans, look for a fan that provides high static pressure, not just high CFM. These generally go hand in hand, but not always.

Check the seating of your block. You may want to remove the block, apply some fresh TIM and reseat the block. Ensure that you have equal pressure applied to all four mounting screws. Obviously, as equal as hand tightening screws will allow you. Try to count the approximate number of screw turns you make on each. Many times, poor performance with these has a lot to do with how they are seated on the processor.

When I rebuilt my system I had a dramatic increase in temps. I had to reseat the block, with new TIM and I was back to normal again.

I directly installed it from its packing, I didn't replace the stock paste because the stock paste from what I read is shin-etsu and supposedly that's amazing paste.

I did that too. Corsair stock is my push, and Antec stock case fan is my pull. I plan on swapping everything out for GT's though, so things could end up changing quite a bit.

It's good paste, don't get me wrong. The problem with the H50's and H70's was the amount they used on it. On the H60, it's only a tiny square iirc, and so it's not that much of a problem. You may want to consider reseating and just using some AS5 for the moment. One of the regular posters here has a fully modded H50 that gets great temps in comparison to even the D14's

Yeah, I suppose I'll get around to a re-seat.
