Thanks for the replies. I will try the H80 route and hope for the best. It seems to me that it should be pretty reliable. I am not quite so worried about destroyed equipment as I am about the disruption of use.

So I reapplied the TIM with some of my MX-2 the way that was recommended to me and the results are acceptable. Before all this, with the stock TIM that came with the H80, I was at 4.2GHz folding at 48C. I upgrade my motherboard and reapplied MX-2 with horrendous results. I had to down clock my OC to 3.9GHz and was barely folding at 57C. After reviewing all that was written in the 80-way TIM web page, I cautiously clamp down my WC block some more and stayed folding with 3.9GhZ @ 54 to 55C. After the fold-a-thon I broke down and shut my system off to reapply the MX-2 as recommended in parallel lines 1/3 apart, tightened down and finally came up with these results:

I don't honestly know what temps I got at 3.9 GHz after reapplication but I am folding stable at 4.1GHz at 50 to 51C. I can't get 4.2GHz stable anymore yet but my folding ppd has improved quite a bit. I still think I will wait to get the G751 until I am ready to upgrade my cpu in the near future. WIth how the H80 is performing I can accept 4.1Ghz for now and not risk dmg to any of the components right now. I am a believer in attn to the reapplication of the TIM and doing it the proper way. Made a huge difference to me. Thanks again for that link. Keep on cooling everyone. thumb.gif

Your current temps are completely acceptable based on your clock. Don't sweat over tightening the hold down ring though. The screws aren't so strong that they'll damage your CPU. Just tighten them all up so they're nice and snug and you should be fine. thumb.gif

The biggest mistakes people often mistake are,
1)Too much TIM applied. TIM will never be as good as direct metal to metal contact. It's whole purpose is to fill in the micro gaps and dips so that there is complete contact across the whole surface.
and
2)Not putting enough TIM on so that there's no TIM towards the edges of the chip.

Does anybody have spare 775 clip things for the h50? I bought the h100 and sold my h50 to my brother, but since I have 1155 and he's 775, I misplaced them. I looked around and found I could buy the mounting kit, but that's $10 when I just need the cheapest part of it. I'd be willing to pay for shipping if someone had some.

They kind of look like this if you don't know what I'm talking about. I think it's now considered part of an "old" mounting bracket for the h50.

Can someone do some measuring for me. I am making some brackets in this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1247567/h60-h80-h100-installed-on-gpu-bracket-inside and need to know if the H80 and H100 have the same bottom plate on the pump.

Thanks!

I just saw those in a box the other day (I'm using the AMD bracket). Let me look around and see if I can find them.

Is that what you're looking for? I knew I saw it around last week.

I can't remember which set I need, but you have the right idea. I'll have to look at the instructions again to see exactly which clips I need.

For 775 you need the two clips that only have one hole
