thats crazy stuff, I know when i installed my 50 I cranked down the screws fairly tight (I thought) then decide to tinker more and ended up checking them and was able to crank them down a few more turns, and dropped a few degrees. So crank those things down but down go over board, I can see something snapping biggrin.gif

You definitely want to screw them in as hard as you can to the point before you start bending the board.

I think my CPU block was mounted on just enough of an angle when I originally installed it that it felt like it was tight, and once I stood the tower up it probably loosened a little. The twist on design wasn't exactly my friend when installing this cooler, lol. I always attributed the mediocre temps to the closed loop design, but I have new found respect for the H70. Inexplicably my NB temps are down significantly as well headscratch.gif ; and it even gave me a "NEW CPU INSTALLED" message when I first booted up (which scared the hell out of me).

This is exactly what I have been telling people (aside from screwing in the corners a little a time instead of one corner at a time)! I also had one time where my pump kept buzzing every 3-5 seconds and it was fixed by tightening one corner that wasn't screwed in as tightly as the other corners.

Yea I was really surprised at how loose it was when I went to tighten it because I am very methodical and tedious when it comes to system builds... or so I thought LOL

At least it wasn't as bad as my first ever PC build about 10 years ago... let's just say I forgot the motherboard standoffs doh.gif We live and we learn biggrin.gif

Yup learned it first hand. In fact, I'm going to jump back in this evening and check to see if they are all still as tight as possible just because I'm ocd. My phenII x4 is running at 4.0 and it idles at 30c and after hours of BF3 it still won't get above 47c.

Its also good to cross tighten them (like you would lug nuts on a tire). Get them all started and snug, then tighten corner to corner, then corner to corner until super tight.

You have to be careful say things like "as hard as you can". I know what you mean, but "screw them in as hard as you can" and "computers" don't really belong in the same subject.

If I screwed those screws in "as hard as I can" that rear bracket, or the screws, or the plastic bits would end up broken.

All we need is some newb to come along and read you comment, crank the screws and break his new H50 or H70.

For any newbies reading this, make the screws tight, wiggle the block and make sure it does not move. Please don't crank them "as hard as you can". If you want to make sure it's seated really well, just try and shine a flashlight between the block and the CPU. If you can see light, and the screws seem tight, disassemble the unit and try reseating it. Perhaps try turning the block by 90°. Turning the block can work great on the coolers with square blocks as opposed to the round blocks of the H50 and H70. The square blocks are large enough that they can hit capacitors that may be mounted beside the CPU socket preventing the block from mounting flush with the CPU. Turning the block 90° can rectify this.

Experienced users like you guys would be familiar with how much pressure is too much. I know a guy who cranks all the screws on his computer all the time and he's constantly stripping screws, screw holes and breaking things. No matter how much I try and help him he won't listen to reason. Just be careful with the screws, especially if plastic is involved in any way.

Since you have a hole in one of your hoses it's possible the pressure may be enough to rupture your electrical tape fix.

Thanks for the info about the H80. I was thinking the H80 was indestructable so thank you for clearing that up for me but I think you misunderstood my question. I was more concerned about how safe my Phenom II 965 was with applying much needed voltage to get the best overclock. Currently, I am at 4.201 Ghz with the vcore at 1.6v. They recommend vcore max 1.55v for air cooling. with a load temp of 62C. I am at load 52C and I am not even at max settings on the cooler. I am in the 2nd "balanced" mode. I know if I asked the Phenom II 9x5 overclock club they would say that the Corsair H series coolers are not any better than air coolers but I think my temps say differently and I would hope I got the support of the H series club that would probably agree with me just how powerful these coolers are. So I am asking anyone here with experience with the H series coolers and Phenom II cpu's if higher voltages are safe with these coolers and what a recommended max vcore might be. For both max overclocking and 24/7 overclock. Thanks in advance.

BTW I am ordering a replacement H80 so leaks should not be an issue. I might toy around with some modding on the H80 I am replacing.

Ah very good points Mergatroid. I often forget details like that since you're right about me already used to applying the right amount of pressure, though I've learned from a lot of stripping and bending (no sexual innuendos intended wink.gif) of screws and boards from when I first started building my rig.

Careful with that voltage. Your motherboard's VRMs take a big toll when you pass the 1.5v-1.55v range and could be slowly degrading and could eventually fry or explode. Asus makes decent motherboard VRMs, but for my board (despite being one of the top of the line of the 700 series) I ended up frying my VRMs at 1.6v and I had to RMA my board. I'd suggest going down to the 1.45v-1.5v range if you want to extend the lifetime of your board. Losing 100-200mhz of performance isn't worth the hassle of replacing a dead motherboard.
