core3: 35

BUT my motherboard (EVGA x58 SLI LE) is showing on the LED on the board a "actual cpu temperature" of 25. before i installed this, it was reading like 36-38.

Did i do everything correctly? seems to me as the temps are STILL HIGH with the watercooling... is something wrong or am i just crazy? please help, im new to this all... thanks!

i think the "turbo" is enabled in the bios, the dummy oc is disabled...
hyperthreading is on...
all the fan settings are set to MANUAL and at 100% (so the pump gets full power) but it doesnt list like CPU_FAN, JSYS1_FAN...etc... so i dont know which is which or how to set those individually...
I had the same thing happen to me I was getting mid 30's stock with the cooler and thought I had a bad seating. When you overclock the 920, at least in my case, the idle temps don't really go up that much between the stock settings and with the new cooler. However it was much apparent how good the h50 works at higher clocks.

I'm running 4.0ghz HT ON @ 1.28v and i'm idling around 38-41c depending on ambient temps and 71-73c under 100% load after 15 passes of IBT on maximum.

Also about your EVGA readout I'm pretty sure its about 10c cooler than actual temps I know that my e760 is way lower than coretemp or realtemp.

Hope this helps!

2. any ideas on how much higher i might be able to get with overclocking my system. i have gotten it up to 3.8 while still being able to play Crysis for over and hour. also here is CPUZ for current info.

CPUZ link for my current overclock config.
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1054862


While i was using paint the encoding completed the second pic is of the temps two minutes afterwards.

edit: reason for not reading everything is that it was about 1230AM when i started this post of mine which can been seen in the pics. not going to sit here for hours when i have work at 4 am. the third pic is of the temps as they normally are which occured shortly after posting.

Maybe this will help:
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ml#post8364079

its actually not bad. if you look at the pics and also the CPUZ link you'll see that i have it at a decent overclock at almost stock temps. i think stock is 3.2 @ 40 idle and as of right now its 3.78@41-43 idle. looking forward to possibly getting this cooler wonder how high ill be able to get this thing. i think that one thing that is helping is having four intakes (all 85 CFM) and two of which blow directly onto the CPU cooler. think that might help even further with the H50?

I tried to install it so that you can read Corsair correctly but it felt like if I was putting a lot of tension on the lines so that's why I left it like that. At the end of the day the tubing is still the same length so temps should be the same regardless.

I shall have my H50 on monday, can't wait to get some results in comparison to my TX3. It should blow it out of the water, and my temps are already pretty good @ 4GHz a max of 64c in 20 runs of IBT.

Maybe it can serve you as reference, maybe not but just so you have an idea. My Megashadow and the case opened had max temps of about 51-52ºc on my rig at 3.8 GHz 1.392v. My H50 with push and pull and case closed did about 42-44ºc. You do the math

Here is something I posted over at TPU, can serve as some reference for anybody.

The quoted post is in bold black, my response is in bold red

Monitoring Tools: CoreTemp 99.5
Ambient Temp: 28 c
CPU speed: 3.2GHz stock w/ no overclocking

Stress Tool: Prime95 v.295
Settings: Default
Duration: 1 hour

Temp - Idle: 37c
Temp - Load: 49c

Stress Tool: Linx v.0.64
Settings: 5 runs - All RAM
Duration: 1 hour

Temp - Idle: 37c
Temp - Load: 51c

Fan setup is as follows:

exhaust: one 140mm Yate Loon D14SL-12
exhaust: pair of 120mm Noctua NF-P12's in push/pull configuration on H50
Intake: pair of 120mm Scythe S-Flex SFF21E's

Thoughts on these results? Are these good or should I continue with my plan:

a. Replace factory H50 AM2/AM3 bracket and install newer Corsair Hydro Series H50 AMD socket AM2 and AM3 Retention Kit from FrozenCPU: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...0-AMDBRKT.html

b. Clean and use thin application of Shin-Etsu X23-7783D on H50 pump: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/89...?tl=g8c127s846



Let me pitch in some of my observations.

1-Replacing TIM is a huge difference. I went from the factory Corsair TIM to the one that is provided with the Megashadow (Prolimatech). That gave me a few degrees of headroom.

2-I did notice the stock mounting mechanism is kinda cheap if you ask me. I never replaced mine, but I think this should also be a good improvement over stock.

3-DON'T PLUG PUMP HEADER TO BOARD. Get a 3pin to 4pin molex if you have to and plug it to PSU. This made the biggest difference of all. Saw a good 5ºc drop over using the mobo.

The H50 is a great cooler, however I'm not so fond of it in stock form. However, if you play around with this cooler there is lots to squeeze out of it. I went from having same temps as my Megashadow with an open case to having same temps and case closed. That already was an achievement. Performs like the Mega while having the case open for the MEga, but the H50 was all closed up. Then I went from that to even with case closed, still performing a good 4-5ºc better than the mega in any given instance. Testing anyone

There are several schools of thought about having direct air on the H50 pump. Some say it helps, others say it doesnt. At the end of the day, if it works, thats great.

Intake ports vs exhaust ports benefit will depend on whether you are going to run your H50 rad in exhaust or intake. If in exhaust, more intake may be helpful. If running intake on the rad then more exhaust may be beneficial. Again, this is somewhat controversial because everyone has an opinion.

The best setup for you will depend on your system and its quirks. It may takes some trials and experimentation but you will get there.
