post #4361 of 28303
OK, my Asetek LCLC came in yesterday and I've been have a bit of fun with it.

4.2GHz (21x200) @ 1.277v (max) set to dynamic voltage
22 multiplier enabled for max single core speed of 4.4GHz
Turbo on, HT on
Ambient: 21.5 °C
Fans: Arctic Cooling 12025PWM push/pull with spacer @1500rpm
TIM: IC7
Intel Burn Test, 8 threads, Standard setting, x64, 5 runs

Cogage True Spirit with bolt through kit:
Idle: 35,30,35,31 (lowest recorded temps with fans on high, 1500rpm)
Load: 69,63,64,62 (max temp IBT)

Asetek LCLC 120mm with stock copper radiator, front intake configuration
Idle: 34,27,33,29
Load: 72,61,62,54

Things to note: I had to up the volts on the Asetek because it crashed under IBT's 'very high" setting even though the Cogage True Spirit was able to pass. The temps shown for the LCLC are with 1.32v, making the temp that much more impressive. I need to figure out why Core 0 is running so hot with the LCLC.

And again good to be here and really happy to have a Corsair H50 that fixed all my problems after Zalman 9900A
Looks good! Did you have a read through this long thread? There are some pretty good ideas and lots of info. Welcome to OCN!

When most people say shroud they actually mean spacer. The spacer goes between the push fan and the radiator (or heatsink) to give space. This allows air to flow onto the center portion of the radiator (or heatsink) which is normally a "dead spot" for airflow because it is blocked by the fan's central hub, when a fan is directly attached to it.

Now a shroud as it sounds goes around a heatsink or on a radiator seals around the edges of it and prevents air from flowing anywhere but through it's cooling fins.

You can find one or the other or a combination of both. I find that when most people say shroud they are referring to the spacer shrouds.

I've screwd down the mounting circle pretty tight, maybe I should try to go tighter? I don't want to break anything. I'm using stock AMD backplate.
As I'm sure you know...something is seriously wrong. For comparison (if no one has given you comparative figures yet) my 965 C3 at 3.8 ghz (19 X multi) with NB at 2.6 ghz using 1.375 volts idles at 27-28 C. Max temp under prime 95 after 3 hours (blended test) is 44 C.
I've only heard of temps like yours when the case had little to no airflow. Have you tried running it without the side cover just for comparison? Is the pump at approx 1400 rpm? Are all the hold down tabs seated correctly? If you're still having problems then I'd say your unit is defective and you should return it.

Got my H50 yesterday! Unfortunately we had a huge storm and the power was out till 6am this morning. Waiting on my spacer too. I'm going to do a push/pull set up, mounting the radiator in the front of case as an intake. I'm going to run 2 140s up top and a 120 in the back exhausting. Trying to avoid fans in the side of the case, but we'll see how that ends up.

Really looking forward see this thing in action! Wishing now I had a clear case side too, it looks pretty sweet in there.... maybe there is trip to the hardware store in order for square of lexan ha ha!!

When most people say shroud they actually mean spacer. The spacer goes between the push fan and the radiator (or heatsink) to give space. This allows air to flow onto the center portion of the radiator (or heatsink) which is normally a "dead spot" for airflow because it is blocked by the fan's central hub, when a fan is directly attached to it.

Now a shroud as it sounds goes around a heatsink or on a radiator seals around the edges of it and prevents air from flowing anywhere but through it's cooling fins.

You can find one or the other or a combination of both. I find that when most people say shroud they are referring to the spacer shrouds.

Quit posting those images when you quote someone!

Quick question, as I'm currently debating on getting either a Ven-X, or the H50 for my new i7 build. Am I right in assuming the H50, being a liquid-based solution, would perform better in a high-ambient temp situation, than traditional tower coolers would?

Tropical climate and all...and my lapped TRUE Black isn't really performing as good as it should if I lived in a colder area.

Well to start with i have a bad cpu... I tried like 5-6 different types of TIM applications with ocz freeze and zalman 9900A's in the box TIM with Zalman 9900A HSF, and even at 3.8Ghz my temps would go to 99C(then throttle ofc)... After a search i found that some of the 1156 i7's actually work seriously hot(when oc'd ofc)... But remember prime95 situation is highly unlikely to happen... Even with 9900A, after a long time(like 3-4 hours) of heavy gaming, my max temp was 60-62C... But with prime95 it goes to throttle under 15min...

So after this input and after H50 with 2 noctua fans things got SERIOUSLY better... With higher voltage(1.352V) and at 4.01Ghz(22x182 if i remember correctly), with prime95 after 20minutes it was 70C at 4 cores... I kow its still hot BUT its safe and till 90-95C there is no need to worry and don't forget that i have a Cosmos 1000 which has a seriously poor air flow... No matter who says what don't forget that these CPU's work with 4 cored with HT...

So i think i can go up to 4.4ghz safely i guess, i'll give it a try soon...

But defo a recommendation from me for H50 + 2x Noctua fans as for push-pull setup...

PS: Ow btw my idle temp at 3.8Ghz with 9900A was like 40-42, now it is 29-30...
