Hi new here and without having to scroll through 350+ pages on this thread, I was hoping someone could throw some advice out regarding the installation of the H50.

I put together a new I7 920 system over the weekend and am using the H50. I have a D0 stepping chip and managed to get to 4.1Ghz with a 196blck at 1.28v. Measuring against what I've seen here and over on the EVGA boards with regards to temps, it seems that maybe I did something wrong on the install of this thing.

My idle temps are 37c which seem fine, yet running Prime95 for over 15 minutes on all 8 threads, I'll hit 79c. I thought that was a bit high so after 24 hours, I cleaned the stock TIM off and put on AS5, but 48 hours later, I'm having the same results. So my question comes around how tight are people screwing the bolts in against the motherboard and also if you've repaced the TIM on the H50, did you use more of your replacement stuff than you normally would with a high end air cooler given that bottom of the H50 isn't really that smooth?
Congrats and welcome to the H50 Club!

I'm actually stress testing right now @ 4.2Ghz, using IBT - "Very High" Stress Level - 20 passes (on pass 18 as I write this) and the temps are 75,72,73,69 and 39,36,38,36 on idle. Your temps seem okay @ 4.1Ghz, but could probably be shaved down a few degrees.

As far as tightening goes, I just screwed it down as tight as it would go without man-handling it. lol The TIM you rubbed off the cooler was actually much better than what you replaced it with. Who knew that this would come stock with Shin Etsu?! Are you using 2 fans for push/pull? If so, is it setup as intake or exhaust?

What were your load temps with the nq3590? Was it significantly different from the H50's?

Yeah, sorry to include that. I'm using the push/pull with stock Corsair fan and Antec Tricool. Does the MX 3 have any curing time like AS does? I know the Shin Etsu doesn't from what I've read here already. I'll try loosening them a 1/2 turn at a time and see what that does if anything. I might try reseating at the end of the week with one of the pastes you mentioned if the loosening doesn't help.

Yeah I've had the AS5 for years and it's worked great on past systems including the one I just upgraded from E8600 o/c to 4.3Ghz with idle temps at 35c and load 62c. That's what's led me to think something is off.

Yeah I can probably snap a pic tonight.

Hey. Ty man. About the pump: On the H50 isnt it only the cpu fan cable attached to it? Is so u got to remeber on the nq3590 its also a molex cable. If this matters i dont know, but it seems like u interest int his very much so U might figure it out. Let ud know when U do

Load temps before modding or load temps not oc? Load temps before modding at 3.81 was 52c, but i dont remember the figures before oc. The sheets are sadly thrown away

Edit: Ive never had a h50 so im not sure what temps U will get of it...

Yep - no dramas - we learn by doing

The corsair stock fan is adequate but people here (including me) are finding that even the humble Coolermaster R4 case fan supplies an increased static pressure for the rad. Consider changing out the corsair fan. There are a ton of posts on this subject.

Mx-3 is good to go soon as its applied. You can probably get a 1-2c difference with those TIMS.

Even though there are no 'cure' times for MX-3 or SE, I have noted that after several stress tests, the temps drop slightly.

I suspect with the heat being generated from the stress tests etc that the TIM is 'settling in'. That is, spreading out a tad more and getting in to where is supposed to go.

Ahh, good info around the fan. I did pick up a set of the Coolermaster S12 silient fans when I bought my case last Friday. I think that's what theyare, at work now, but I'll check when I get home. Maybe I'll replace that one as well.

Nah,,, you probably dont want to be using that fan for your push/pull. The RPM & air flow is too low. See specs;

Try something with specs like this; (as an example). Im sure someone esle will chime in with a more appropriate suggestion

What is the best TIM to apply to the h50, aside from Indigo Xtreme? I remember reading earlier MX-3. Any other suggestions? (sorry for the off topic question). So I can get the best temps when I decide what loop setup to choose
