post #22311 of 28253
Thanks guys. I think this will be my last kit to do phase 1 testing on for kit only performance. Then the fun will begin with the mods and hydraulics and tweaking stuff tinkering. I have a used kit and a new one coming so plenty to play around with.

I have plenty of fans and an extra rad or two as well I could do some experiments with..smile.gifthumb.gif

actually ended up getting higher temps with the h60 vs the tx3 frown.gif

Idle went from 32 to 38
load temps went from 65 all the way to 86

maybe I did something wrong, but I took it off for now, will mess around more tomorrow, not very pleased right now :/

return the h60. its pretty much useless as you found out for a 3770k that hasnt been de-lidded. h60 is more for a 'quieter' stock or probably older amd phenom 2. ivy imo gets too hot for anything less than a really good cooler. the h60 is not a really good cooler no matter what you read.

The H50 and H70 used Shin Etsu TIM, while the H60, H80 and H100 used Dow Corning TIM. Corsair claims that the Dow Corning stuff is as good as the Shin Etsu. I don't know if the newer Hydro coolers are still using the Dow Corning TIM.

Jury is still out on the "Liquid Ultra" which "some" guys were raving about several months ago, that it may give you a 1c-2c performance boost.

Nice to see you so active again thumb.gif
IMHO push/pull is overated with the H100(i) series properly set up in a case with good circulation. For an average OC/load/ambients you may only see a 3c-4c loss of performance if you go with the H80i over the H100i. The stock (i) series fans are pretty good performers and you won't see much improvement in performance by replacing them BUT with AP-15's/Noctua's etc you may improve on the "Noise" factor with only a very slight hit in performance over the stock fans. wink.gif
Not enough info on your system components/ case circulation / overclocks / 24/7 use etc to give a more detailed comment ... Corsair recommends Push/Intake (blowing air into the radiator-drawing fresh air in from the back) Personally and depending on your setup? (see above) I prefer the Push/Exhaust ... you may loose 1c-3c degrees in CPU cooling but the rest of your system benefits including your GPU/SSD-HDD/Motherboard and the radiator "Can" stay cleaner longer depending on the above wink.gif

HERE is a 1st timer with a nice video showing my thoughts above @ 4min mark biggrin.gif

Liquid Ultra is nothing like AS5. AS5 is a paste while LU is metallic.

Many people have found the H60 to be a very good cooler, and the reviews place it correctly amongst the other Hydro coolers. In fact, many people used the highly popular H50 cooler for overclocking, and the H60 is better than the H50.

It's a simple matter to google the reviews.

i forgot they updated the h60 when they revamped their lineup. and the h50 wasnt that good. when it was introduced you could get the same or better temps on air cooling for the same amount.

yes its frosty's but it still shows where the h50 placed approximately.

dont forget how loud the h60 is either once those fans ramp up. but to each his own.

Perfect, sounds like it is pretty good stuff. Never heard of Dow Corning, but if it's comparable or better than Shin Etsu, then it must be good.
Thanks!

What are the differences between the H100 and H100i? I built my rig over the summer and got a H100 :/

Also, what are some good fans to replace the H100 stock fans? They are so loud and I think it's time to replace them. Louder than my graphic card fans
