Exhaust -- Ultra Kaze 3k => Shroud => Rad => Slipstream 2k

Both Scythe Fans are connected to my Fan Controller. My temps stay the same regardless of Fan Speeds with this setup.

So I just have my Controller at the slowest possible speeds, and the noise is barely audible, but the temps remain great!

I have an ATCS 840 and originally installed a push/pull exhaust set-up and ran prime95 overnight on my 920 leaving it stock. Hottest core settled on 66C.

Just for the hell of it I switched it to intake the next night, using only the 38mm Panaflo 1BX spinning @60% or about 1700 RPM. Ran the same prime95 blend test overnight and that same hottest core settled at 56C.

Just moving from exhaust to intake dropped my load temps 10C!



The reason I think this happened is the 2 230mm fans on the top of the ATCS 840. Cool air from outside the case is moving across the radiator and is immediately being exhausted out the top. The only other fan I have in the case at the moment is the 230mm intake in front the hard drive cage.
Yup I would say that would be a good cause of it. You might try a fan with high static pressure on the intake side (inside the case if you run that direction). This should help that situation.

I've just built my new rig with a 960 and an H50, it's barely 48 hours old. It's running on stock at the moment although I've run a few short overclocking tests. I'm here because I'm concerned about my temperatures, which seem higher than other rigs I've seen, although to be fair 99.9% of them are 920s.

I had thought the 960s lower base clock would help but my idle temperatures range from 39C to 43C and the RealTemp sensor test (Prime95 for about 10 minutes) shoots that up as high as 76C (ambient 27C). Overclocking takes that into the stratosphere. I'm not sure whether there is a problem with my installation or whether the BIOS is forced to run slightly higher voltages to keep my system stable because I've got 12GB (6 x 2GB). Either way I'm not thrilled at the moment, and I'm wondering whether I've made an expensive mistake.

Just noticed you have the same case I do, how are your case fans arranged?


Take a look at my post a couple up from yours, you should try switching your radiator fans to intake.

i7 920 D0 vcore 1.275 @ 4.0GHz idle temp is 40c and Load temp is 70-75c
Config is <=FAN=SHROUD=RAD<=FAN
Are those temps acceptable?

Looks pretty good for the Vcore you're sending through it. Do you have hyperthreading disabled?


For reference, I'm at 4GHz with 1.25 Vcore and load temps are 60C on the coolest core and 65C on the hottest.

Man your post confused me, as I knew I replied to it, but in the other thread

My point still stands. Summer is bad, mmkay.

(also look if mounted correctly)

Just ordered my H50 from Newegg! I can't wait!

HELP, I have H50 1st series. I installed 1366 bracket as instructed but now I cant get it out, its just stuck to motherboard... I think that sticky bit which hold bracket in place is causing it... Any idea what I should do?

You mean the supplied double sided tape?

Just pull it off gently.
