I would like to be added to the ranks of H50 owners as my inaugural first post to these forums. ^_^

I figured, after reading thru some of this thread and reviews elsewhere, that an H50 was in order to go with the Phenom II 955 (upgrading from a 940) for my system. Now the question I have right now is if the following temps seem normal for a 955 running at stock:

Monitoring Tools: Everest 5.3, CoreTemp 99.5
Stress Tool: Prime95 v.295 (duration: 1 hour)

Idle: 35
Load: 47

Now, this is a bit warmer than my 940 which was using a Zalman 9700NT:

Idle: 30
Load: 45

The numbers look good to me, especially based upon reading some other posts that I searched for here. But just wished to see if this was wishful thinking or not.

Just to be on the safe side I did loosen up the mounting screws and re-seated the pump. Also verified that the pump is running at 1420 or so on the CPU header with all speed control disabled as well as the pair of Noctua NF-P12's running full out at around 1240 or so in a push/pull configuration exhausting out the rear.

Now I need to pop over to the Antec 300/900/1200 Owners Thread and post there as well. -_^

Thats a nice setup and your temps are good.

You can achieve nicer temps using a shroud too (see front page of this thread). Also, which TIM did you use.

Apart from that, it looks like you have the standard questions covered.

nice work man dudette . Killhouse will add you to the list, once his hangover leaves him (I kill myself sometimes. )

I saw someone mention that earlier but, to be quite honest, I was not sure exactly how it would work in a push/pull configuration exausting out the rear. I'll have to read thru it again to see if it makes any better sense this time reading a third time around.

I wound up using the factory installed TIM since I really wanted to make sure to take out any complications should something have gone south. That way, it also would make things easier to troubleshoot as well.

I did notice after running Prime95 for about 1 1/2 hours that I got a single failure on the #1 test, which I'm thinking was on core 1, and it stopped. However, the other three were still poking along so I'm thinking it's okay but a lot of this is new to me since I'm usually a slap on a heatsink/fan and away I go kind of girl.

Otherwise, I'm pretty impressed with how much more quiet my system is even running a slightly more beefier CPU than I had before. Still going to keep my 9700NT around just-in-case something goes wrong over the next few days but I'm pretty happy with what I see so far. Heck, swapping in some S-Flex SF21E's to replace the Noctua's I used for the H50 seems to be working good as well.

Just hope that's not a famous last words thing.

The TIM is Shin Etsu, its a good quality TIM but I think they laid it on a lil thick. I went from scrapping it off (didnt know what it was at that time) and applying MX-3, back to the ES X23... Im happy with it now

The rad seems to like high pressure fans. Im using the humble CM R4 in push and pull to great effect. Some are even using Zalman fans... see the front page for details.

I dont think anything will go wrong. Its a sturdy unit (got my Thor's Hammer - just in case LOL).

Have a think about a shroud... they really do make a difference.

Just checked out your rig on the Antec thread... very nice! We too would like that eye-candy here pls

Also, sorry about the "nice work man" thing... Ive amended my original post
