So have I. It really depends on who is reviewing it and what kind of performance they are looking for. In my experience it somewhat better than artic silver 5, but it isn't the absolute best. Ive seen a few charts floating around this site, which people have made using shin-etsu and 10 or so other TIM's. Shin-Etsu was the one which scored the 2nd or 3rd best (lowest) temps, the top being Indigo Extreme. For some its a significant drop in temperature for others it isn't. Getting a better thermal paste will drop temps anywhere from 1-5 C depending what its used for and what your previous thermal paste was.

My con-fig is currently fans exhaust, Im gonna test it fans intake later on next week, lets see if my results change

Just been into bios something not right.


Currently my CPU is at STOCK!

CPU temp is 40oc
MB temp is 39oc

CPU speed is 1240 ( i think thats the delta fan on the back of the rad..)

CPU Q-Fan Control Enabled.

CPU Fan profile Turbo.

CH 1 speed 1339RPM ( thats a case fan top right )

CH 2 speed 1061RPM ( This is the PUMP )

Chassis Q-Fan Control Enabled
Chassis Fan Profile Turbo


Can anyone see the problem here ... Is the pump not kicking out enough rpm i dont feel these temps are right at all there far to high at stock voltage and speed.

My Zalman had way lower temps at stock ( tested it before i fitted the H50 )

its suppose to be Manual, you by hand change the fan speed to 100%

Q-Fan will still throttle your fan's even if set to turbo, If you turn it off all your fans will run at 100% no matter what.

Can you read the very first thread where it explains of the pre-installed thermal paste, it says it its higher quality = being Better than 3rd party TIM
"The stock piece of thermal tape on the back of the H50 is Shin Etsu, this is a very good TIM (Thermal Interface Material) and normally ranks above your normal cheaper candidates (MX3 or AS5)"

This is the real difference(As people comparing with H50 as in the pre-stock TIM against an AC5 or MX3 etc...), the one's on the H50 have been applied for many months before they are sold in stores, so if you were to FRESHLY apply the Shin-Etsu it would be a whole allot of difference compared to a pre-installed production. Ofcourse I have the MicroSi G571 version, not the x23 (which is better)
