You could try some AS5. Probably won't make a huge difference in temps though. A good seat is far more important.

I think the stock is better. It's friggen Shin-Etsu!

I love it when a build comes together. Compared to the XP-120 this was a piece of cake.



Corsair needs to mention in the instructions that extra set of screws it comes with that just happen to thread perfectly into the stock AM3 backplate. Here I was not happy with needing to replace the good steel plate with a plastic one, and lo and behold, didn't have to remove the mainboard and all structural reinforcement is intact. Sweet!

Config as exhaust with corsair fan pushing and antec tricool that came with the case pulling. Also I'm betting it helped that I slid the retention bracket over the pump first and both made contact and screwed it down all at once. No lifting, no twisting, no goofing up that expensive TIM they put on it.

Once I figure out why prime95 hates my computer so much I'll know what the high temp is. Sometimes it works, sometimes it gets in a conflict and locks the computer at 800MHz. It won't let me do anything but move the mouse and very carefully click to stop the workers. I did manage to get it to run for 15 minutes a little bit ago and it peaked at 50C IHS and 52C core in a 26C ambient room. Not too shabby at 3.6GHz/1.4v. Linpack doesn't even get it hot, I don't have enough RAM... now that the ambient is down to 23C (opened a window...) IHS stops rising at 41C and core at 48C. Sweet. A heck of a lot better than the high 50s IHS and mid 60s core I had on the XP in that test, ick.

Used the Tt one last time... its wire adapter allows getting power and ground from molex but splits and sends just the rpm lead to the board so I can see it in speedfan. Fewer worries. This board does funky things on the fan connectors even when qfan is off.

Edit: 24C ambient, OCCT gives 47C IHS and 50C core. Linpack a little hotter in charts below. I love headroom!

Is the installation of the H50 different? Like screw down? not Behind the backplate?

If you look in that pic, you'll see 4 screws on the ring bracket that holds down the water block/pump. Those 4 screws go into either your original backplate (lucky for AMD owners!) or the replacement plastic backplate with metal inserts that comes with the cooler.

The H50's installation includes putting on the backplate to the back of the motherboard and putting screws through the bracket and into the backplate on the back of the motherboard.

I noticed on AMD systems, you could use the AMD backplate with the bigger-threaded screws the H50 comes with. On Intel systems, you will be using the smaller-threaded screws and the backplate.

So I loosened the retention bracket, and discovered that my h50 was making excellent contact with my CPU, it didn't want to move, even with bracket off. So I gave it a little twist to the right and left, as to push out any air bubbles in the tim, and redid the rention bracket. I kept my stock tim ... "It's friggen Shin-Etsu!"

Temps so far seem to be the same as before. I am more suspecting my "DrMos" NB/ mosfter passive cooler [Read: room heater] of tainting the ambient intake temperature for the H50

Maybe I need to fabricate a shroud so my top exhaust pulls that hot air away from the rad ...

Are you getting enough airflow?

I would think so ... P182, for the main chamber [power supply/ HDs isolated], I have two 120mm intake fans, the H50 with two 120mm fans exhausting by rear I/O, and one 120mm exhaust on top, right above the NB/ MOSFET heatsink

I am running it push-pull, exhaust, in my P182 case. I have the included corsair fan, and an Antec TriCool on low, on the rad. I have 3-120mm intake fans, and 3-120mm exhaust fans (including the aforementioned two on the H50 rad)

My idle temp is 35.C, and load is 55.C. This is with the CPU at 3.2Ghz, 1.35v. My buddy in Calgary has the same CPU, case, fans, and his idle is 28.C, load is 38.C.

Can anyone help me get my temps more reasonable? Should I reseat the block? I don't really want to run it intake, as my NB runs hot enough as it is (~57.C load, stock voltage with tim replaced) ... what should I do?
A number of possibilities could be the culprit here. Just because you guys have the same set up might not always net the same results Ambient temperatures and airflow could be the problem as well. However, I have seen a lot of people that have the same problem and re-seat the block to fix it.

Also, I'm not sure about your fans - if you want to maximize the cooling efficiency it's really important to get some good fans. Also, CFM doesn't mean everything especially when it comes to heatsinks/rads. A fan with good static pressure and design will do wonders for the H50. I would suggest something like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's because they work well with the radiators fin density and is also what I'm using
