Pick up some rubber sound-dampening fan mounts - they have a little rubber bit that will pop through the hole. Look for it from your preferred seller under sound dampening and anti-vibration kits.

Temporarily, use a rubber band to hold the fan in place.

Unless you run your cpu as a dual or tri-core I wouldn't go past 1.55v for long periods of time. I did 1.6v for my old 955 C2 and it fried my board's VRMs after a few hours. The CPU still survived, but I had to RMA my board.

Your board has better VRMs than mine though, so you're less likely to see the same result as me, but I recommend going for a lower overclock as 100-200mhz doesn't add much in benchmarks/gaming.
Thanks, I've taken my overclock off for now due to such high voltages being needed (or at least being shown in CPU-Z), however it is my ultimate goal to get to 4Ghz as a 24/7/365 overclock.
I have been watching the temperatures on my VRM's whilst I have been overclocking and the highest my VRM's have gotten is 30C so im not too worried about those. I think my processor prefers high voltages as dropping it down to stock isnt stable when running an intel burn test but with high voltages it is.
Im going to try overclocking my other components to max first and then push up the processor last, but at least i know the H60 is able to handle the heat from high voltages (up to 1.60v) and a 4Ghz clock speed, it didnt even pass 58C on load. Its such an amazing cooler, i cant even hear it over my idling graphics card.

My recent H70 + spare parts mod for my crappy old HP Pavilion with a Phenom x4 9650 CPU and 9800GT video card.



Ditched the aluminum rad for a spare Swiftech MCR220 rad.


EK FC88 water block.


The heart of the system.


Fun build, especially cramming it in a mini ATX system.

Ok, so just an update, moved the h50 pump to system header instead of the cpu header, and this is the result.

Idle:

What do you guys think? Are my temps OK? Thanks!

Looks about right. My 955 BE would put out about 48c at full load with the H50. Your 965 running stock runs a tad hotter than the 955 BE @ stock so that's reasonable I think.

this made me understand it more.

thanks guys!

btw, what fans do you recommend for the push/pull config? i'm currently using (2) coolermaster fans from the 4-pack i got. are they good enough? or you have better suggestions?

thanks again!

I like and will always recommend Yate Loon 120mm fans. From High Speed to Low Speed. They are all very good and have great static pressure, which is what you need for Radiators.

I run High Speeds in the summer adjusted by my Rheosmart Controller and Medium Speeds the rest of the year because High Speeds can on my nerves a bit.

New guy, just wanted to say hello. Lots of good info here. Havn't had time to read all the posts yet, but like what I see.

Running the H70 on an i7 975, push/pull intake with a window kit pulling outside air in, 6 months now with no negative effects. Using High backpressure Mechatronics fans. Core temps variable, usually in the 30's idle up to 4.3 OC. Redoing OC after ram addition (18 gigs total) presently 4.1 OC.

Open forum is a wonderful idea, the number of posts here make that evident. Would enjoy sharing info with the group...
