With the GTX 275 blowing hot air in there, its gets to about 40c.

So, Im going to see what happens.
Well. Thats that theory down the plug hole...

Swung the fans and shrouds around on the weekend to intake. There was no great difference from exhaust.

I did have to swing one of my case intake fans to exhaust to compensate.

The only real difference with intake was, it took a lil longer to reach max temps over exhaust and that was about it.

Also. Im also officially a dill! I had thought my Coolermaster fans where R4s, there not, they are F1s... thats a difference of about 20 cfm

So, Im going to order these:

Anyway... here are the Linpack tests...

Here's a quick guide I hope some may find helpful!

*IMPORTANT* - This guide is intended for users who discover they need to reseat their H50 shortly after mounting. Applies to new or almost new paste. IT IS NOT advised to reuse the tim after more extensive use.

Step 1:
Find an empty or almost empty thermal grease syringe. Empty it out, and clean the tube thoroughly, using Q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Clean the rubber grommet and tip of the plunger as well.


Step 2:
Find a credit card with a good edge. Clean it off briefly with rubbing alcohol.

Step 3:
Scrap the Shin Etsu Paste off the block and tap/ scrape it into the open syringe. Go slow and steady, it is somewhat crumbly and you will lose some if you aren’t careful.



Step 4:
Do the same with the CPU. Be mindful to avoid static discharge; you don’t want to ruin your prized Phenom or I7 simply be being negligent.


Step 5:
Insert the plunger back into the syringe. Squeeze until the paste comes out. You will have a small tip of residual silicone paste, wipe this away. Clean your syringe up.


Step 6:
Enjoy! You now have hopefully a few applications of high quality Shin Etsu paste to use

While I applaud your ingenuity and patience, I have a difficulty with reusing TIM.

If this procedure was done with a new, unseated H50. I would have no issue.

However scrapping it off what looks like a post-seated water block and CPU, leaves me a little worried.

Indicates to me that it has already been exposed to several or more heat cycles. A TIM in that state may cause more problems than its worth.

I would exercise extreme caution doing this.

Killhouse,

Just double-checked to make sure but you may wish to edit the "What is the best thermal paste for the H50?" question with this link:

http://www.overclock.net/other-cooli...mal-paste.html

If I somehow happen to also find an official Corsair note on this to clarify I'll edit this post. Just figured this would be good to revise since, much to my surprise, there are several different grades of Shin-Etsu paste:

Home URL: http://www.microsi.com/packaging/thermal_grease.htm

Shin-Etsu X23-7783D - used by Corsair H50
Shin-Etsu X23-7762
Shin-Etsu G-751
Shin-Etsu G-765

Hope this helps!

While I too, would not reuse TIM that has seen extensive use, my H50 has been mounted all of three days and seen maybe 24hours of uptime. My guide is best suited for those who disover they need a remount shortly after mounting.

I just figured, if this Shin Etsu is as good as everyone says it is, why waste it? And with proper procedure (clean syringe, card, etc.), the paste should be no worse for the wear.

I will test sometime this evening, if my temps are worse off, or thermal anomalies occur, I will delete my original post and speak no more of it

No, no... its a great idea for the time frame you have mentioned. I think that statement is the key to the guide.

If you add that caveat, I would be more comfortable.

Given the large number of relative newcomers to this thread, if we are not clear about what we are talking about, we may lead them down a path we would not want to go down. And they will be sad
