Any thoughts ?

Second the recommendation for new fans. The ones you are using are too weak for that rad. I personally recommend the Akasa Vipers, as they have one of the highest static pressure and CFM ratings for their speed and noise level; and they are PWM controlled. You'll need to use a splitter with a Molex power connector, as they do have a higher power draw as well.

Two other things:
First, the TIM should have been fine, as it's one of the highest quality on the market; but it is applied rather more thickly than it needs to be.
Second, the cold plate is not very flat for the H70. Lapping it should show a huge reduction in temp. It did for me when I lapped mine.

It was so close, that I had to loosen up some of the screws on the plate just to be able to put it in, and then I tighten the screws again.

On one of my cases I wanted to add an H50 but had no room. I cut out the hard drive bays so I could mount it at the bottom/front of the case:

Couldn't you do something similar? Is this your case?

If you put a shroud and a fan on the intake side of the H70, would the hoses reach from the front bottom to the CPU? If you're into modding, you might be able to work out a bottom front mount.

I could remove the bottom tray for the four hard drives, but I'm using them. And I would prefer not to do anything like that if I could help it. Thanks though

What cooler did you have before and what are your before and after temps? Please give us as much info as possible (I.E. CPU, CPU speed, voltage, fan configuration (push/pull with shrouds?), what fans your using and at what speed... And so on). Thanks in advanced man. We are all eager to see some results (or at least I am but I'm sure I'm not the only one). I pre ordered the H100 but it won't ship until around the 10th so I'm waiting on that still. Any and all info that you can provide would be much appreciated.

Running an i7 920 currently at 3.2Ghz at 1.31v. Gonna overclock to 3.8 this weekend sometime. Running push/pull on H80 with stock fans only and intake. balanced setting. Too noisy on high. Currently I am between 38-42C at idle, ~12% load 40-42C, Highest I got under 100% load for more than a few minutes was 55C. IMO the balanced setting is the best. Low has very minimum airflow. Balanced has RPMs at around 2100, and High is way too noisy with the stock fans. Balanced might be noisy to some, but if you use headphones or have some low background noise then it can be drowned out easily.
I'll try to update with my results at 3.8Ghz when I can.

I was using a CM Hyper 212 and upgraded because temps at this setting were way too high for me. ~49-53C Idle and 81C @ 100% load. Upgrade was worth it for me. But this is my first hydro series cooler so nothing to compare to really.

3.2 GHz at 1.31v its high for voltage. Have you tried to lower your voltage? I can run under 1.0v (or maybe just slightly over) on all 3 of my i7's ( I have a i7-920, i7-930, and i7-960) for even 3.6 GHz. You might try lowering your voltage and then you should see much lower temps. PM me if you need some help with it.

I know it's high. I've done it manually to 1.29, but when I use CPU level up and OC from there it defaults to 1.31v. I haven't gotten around to changing my OC profile yet.
