Pop this question out to the group:

Stock TIM (Shin Etsu?) or ICD7? Had a brief chat with a fellow H50 owner who said ICD7 was insanely better, so I thought I would come here to confirm before I pulled my fresh tube out of my desk.

When lapping, did you take it apart? Is it possible to take the base off or would that expose the liquid?

I hadn't considered it yesterday, but today, I am still somewhat stymied by the results on my machine: a shroud in either position seemed to raise temps. I was considering doubling up fans next, i.e.

Fan | Fan | H50 (intake)

probably with & without shrouds, but I think I should add double shrouds in there, too. Hey, why not test all these differences, it's pretty fun. Though I am a bit surprised at how different the results can be on a "case by case" basis, literally.

I wish I understood better why my results with a shroud were not better. I am considering starting over from scratch, tesing very methodically and being mindful of modifying just one factor at a time, i.e. "single fan, push, intake", "single fan, push, shroud, intake", etc.

Also perhaps using a different stress program for calculating max temp -- although OCCT makes it really hard to compare, since the default graphs/images are so handy.

thx,

What fans are you using? It sounds like the fans your using don't have very good static pressure. Also, what RPM's are they spinning at? Double fans will not help. That config may make things worse. I use CM R4's at 2k RPM. Despite what anyone thinks they know, these fan's have monster static pressure. With a shroud, I only need to use one fan to pull through the rad. My delta is only 6c over idle when under full load. Great fans.

ICD7 >> Shin Etsu
Shin Etsu >> MX3 or AC5
Thats basically how it goes. Stock paste is good, but ICD7 is certainly awesome.

Pretty I may try this, I know you have no firm results but do you feel that this made a difference?

It is commonly agreed that doubling fans up provides no benefit at all, you are quite likely to just confuse the airflow. I'm quite sure you will see worse temps with this setup, but if you're going to try anyway I'll be curious

I might try, but yeah, especially given that I am using 2 different fans, I'll probably forgo this one, considering how much angst I go thru sometimes when the screws aren't finding the holes in the rad and I start sweating & cursing.

Yeah, the fans are likely an issue. Right now I'm using an ACRyan Blackfire4 fan on the pull side, running @ 2000 rpm (supposed to be 79cfm) and on the push side the Xigmatek fan from the Dark Knight (dunno the model #) also @ 2000rpm (rated @ 81cfm); the Xigmatek I have read, has decent static pressure.

But I am shopping for better fans right now. I am thinking of perhaps two Gentle Typhoons, the high speed ones, on my fan controller, still in Push/Pull. Or maybe one of the 38mm San Ace's or Panaflos.

Well, I'm on my new quad amd 965 Not gunna OC for a while but right now im running the max heat option for prime95 and isn't going over 47C

Have the radiator sandwhiched between two noctua P12's

This is what made me decide on the Gentle Typhoons, great performance at low noise levels. And even then they are much quieter with a shroud between them and the rad.
