Should the pipes come out of the bottom of the block? I have mine oriented semi upside-down and the temps are very unimpressive... 46-52C stock Prime after only 5 mins and 67-70C with the overclock in the same amount of time. Fans are full blast and obnoxious... used in a HAF 922 with 4 intake fans and two fans above exhausting, in a push-pull intake config with two 1450RPM GentleTyphoons...

Ambient temp is 18C. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, cause it's getting spanked by my CNPSX Flex Push-Pull... Not really spanked, but it's no improvement at load and is worse idle

The position of the pump shouldnt make a difference (I assume thats what your referring too).

It may be a seating problem. As nice as this cooler is, seating it flat and even can be tricky. Its a common problem.

All things being equal,, even at your OC, your temps should be lower.

^-- The orientation of the tubes doesn't make a difference from what I've seen. Yeah, it could be a seating issue or maybe even a pump issue. Also, make sure you have the pump running at 100% (~1450rpm's). If you do end up re-seating it, try to screw the pump down in a cross-(X) pattern using 1-2 turns per screw until all 4 are tight.

Am I supposed to hear it running? I hear a persistent noise like a sccchwwwwiirrrrrr and it's fairly annoying. I'll try to re-seat it and orient it as an exhaust, but so far I'm kinda disappointed Pump appeared to be running around 1380RPM at full speed.

eheheh remember not all processors or mobo's act the same as others or even if they are the same... in other words other people could probably go way higher than you stable or way lower than you stable... its simply just *Pure Luck* ... but wte That was back in 2008 *2 years ago... no clue if that guy is still around to ask (pretty sure that guy had good water cooling) =P but anyways that is really good overclocking where you are at.


Anyways jumping out of subject....


Guys buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu I hit a Huge BUMP!!! I'm pretty sure its my crappy PSU(I hope), because I've been a few days running 4.21Ghz since the very second day of having the H50 stable(did prime95 blend overnight & had also ran Intelsburntest maximum ram 7158mb 5 tests stable & my temp max load was between 50c - 54c, but that was only 1 time i tested them @ that overclock)... well today randomly it started freezing / then I rebooted decided to run Prime95 to see if its all okay... in just only around 35 minutes all the sudden Temps reached around 60c and my PC crashed (turned off, no reboot - power button didn't do anything - i had to unplug wait 1 minute and plug in again to turn it on)

So right after it started, I head inside Bios, set everything to default stock @ 3.41Ghz (200 x 17) made my voltage, rams & everything to Auto. Booted up and ran prime95 again on blend ... no clue but Temps were going way high to around 57c (noticed through Everest the Auto cpu voltage was going up to 1.52) ... so decided to stop reboot / Bios this time setting manually voltage starting from 1.400 booted back into windows this time decided to use Intelsburntest (since its faster for 100% cpu usage & ram is used allot too) same maximum ram 7158mb, 5 tests... this time its max was 52c (its way too high compared to when before, when i used to be on Air cooling - comparing to now having the H50).. so I said wte...

Its time to start all over again overclocking, just leaving the cpu voltage manually @ 1.4 and just only alone changing the cpu multiplier & limiting my self that the highest max load temp should be between 55c - 57c... so kept going up 0.5x (testing each time Intelsburntest max 5 tests) until it gets close to those temps & cause a reboot to my system (if it reboots - set higher the voltage, but paying attention to my max load temps)... after a couple of hours doing stable tests.... well for some reason my current max... 3.90Ghz (200 x 19.5) 1.412v idle @ 32c / max load @ 57c <-- that made me really sad

If I even go higher at 4.01Ghz (200 x 20) I have to up my voltage to 4.275 to be stable(it crashed my system a few minutes on testings @ 1.4125v) and my Temps would reach over 58c probably 60c but I stopped it.. that is way too high so lowered back since for me the one before were reasonable temps for me (even if its still hot, pretty certain i won't run anything nearing close to 75% cpu usage <-- thats around 48c - 50c)

so yeah I'm stuck bumped at 200 x 19.5 - 3.9Ghz - 1.4125v

Now hopefully, when my new case arrives CM590, adding all the fans in all available mounting spaces & upgrading my PSU, then I should be able to go higher again over 4ghz stable(and obviously have lower temps).. if not.. pretty certain that could be my Phenom heading to death *over heating* & I should only run it at stock or lower. *Also I would re apply thermal paste again.

You think so? I'm seeing a lot of guys with I7's running that hot. I think hes pretty normal for an Intel. Am I wrong?

No, you are not wrong and the i7 does run hot but temps of 46-52C stock surprise me.

67-70C with the overclock (3.67Ghz) is a smidge high ( I ran mine at 4.05Ghz @ 70c). Others, including Sexybastard is running 4Ghz <70c.

I would suggest that with a good seat and pressure on the pump head he can get lower temps.

Also, with a room ambient of 18c, I would not expect those temps.

The intake configuration should be pulling in that 18c air and logically, be cooling better.

I tightened this thing tighter than some analogy to no effect. Will try setting it as an exhaust tomorrow. As of right now it's just too loud for the perf. I'm probably going to return it and go back to the CNPSX flex. Also the people who say GentleTyphoons are quiet are bonkers.

What TIM did you use? Have you tried a re-seat?

The noise may be air bubbles and that will effect your temps. They should dissipate after a while.

Try the exhaust option, it cant hurt. While your at it, try the Corsair stock fan and one of the GT fans... see if that helps.

The GT 1450s dont have that much air push (50ish CFM).

Have look here for fans that are commonly used on the H50;

I don't have this wc yet but been reading it for some quite time and i believe the exhaust fan works better than that stupid intake because i know the rad needs air escape out not inside your case, It needs proper airflow. Then again i guess it depends on an person's case and what they are doing. I do notice you're overclocking hard, You need to remember this is not a powerful WC that push further, you'll need a better WC than this to overclock harder. Just my 2 cent. I still wanna buy this and try it but skeptic still.
