post #3941 of 28251
My load temps had creeped up steadily over the past few weeks from 44C to 54-55C. I had no idea why--hadn't changed voltage, clock speed, or ambient temps.

Last night I got out the compressed air and opened up my computer. Looked at the rad and it was COVERED in dust. Sprayed it out and now my temps are back down to 45C. I'd been worried that one of my fans had failed, but no, just a lot of dust.

I dunno if cutting off the corners would help much because of the fact the the fan would really be sitting right on the heatsink.
If I were you I would turn the fans around and use them exhausting out of the case. I find that a shroud is more important on the pull fan than the push fan. This would mean you could add the shroud on the back of your case. If you can fit a fan you can fit a shroud. Just use an old 120mm fan, remove the inner guts, and use it as a shroud.

The noise was ridiculous......then I cut out the exhaust opening on the HAF 922 (i.e. wire snips around the holes on the back of the 120mm exhaust) and suddenly almost zero noise. I need to put my ear right against the fan to hear it now. The problem was the high pitched noise the blades were making as the attempted to suck air out through all those holes!!! Try it. It not only lowered my noise but lowered my temps as well.
A shroud would of probably achieved the same thing.

I'm hoping this will drop my idle to 24-29 and my max to 54-55ish. I think that should be a generous number going from my 15$ air cooler!
your idle wont drop and your max might not either.

Go into bios and make sure your CHA_2 fan speed is set to 100 all the time, but I"m sure it is.

i7's at 4GHz run hot!!! Even with an H50, its gonna be kinda high.

What temps are you looking at?

I cant see anything to change this in bios dude... what is the term for it? I have a delta fan at the back which way should it be the front of the blades pointing towards the rad or out of the case?

okay guys earlier I posted that my temps got really high (16hrs ago) & I had to down clock entirely to 3.9Ghz

well decided to *remove my current thermal paste "MX-3" and add Shin-Etsu (MicroSi G571) bought that on ebay a few days ago for: $3.48 GUYS its way better check out:

New Temps 30c idle / 52c max load printscreen <-- this is only 10 minutes after installing it.

compared to earlier 32c idle / 57c max load (MX-3) printscreen

But as well remember I had similar temps of the new temps when I was up at 4.21Ghz, i still have no clue what has happened that I'm suddenly hotter(and only stable lower than 4ghz)... oh well at least this proves Shin-Etsu is better than MX-3 (I had it on since I first got the H50)... so in my case its a big drop (-5c) and especially considering since how cheap I found it on Ebay.

Now its just to wait for the new case & psu upgrade, I hope it gets better.

Yeah, I think MX-3 has a curing time, unlike shin-etsu which seems cure almost immediately getting you good temps relatively quickly. Im surprised that the performance was that much better temperature-wise, I had heard great things about Mx-3.
