Yeah I know the stock NZXT has 9 blades, but I have no idea what its static pressure is.
As for the H50 fan, its kinda meh. That could have something to do with your temps.

Maybe it was the way he mounted it/thermal paste.

If he hasn't put enough pressure on the H50 w/ stock paste, then he should try putting some more pressure, since they apply it a little bit too generously. If he used his own thermal paste, he should apply a pea/rice sized dot in the middle and smoosh it down with the H50's pressure to ensure no bubbles.

i was wondering about that, so maybe later i will put a little bit more pressure on it without removing it... if that doesnt help, i might just clean it all and apply AS5... still unsure...

Update

Have taken the H50 off of the CPU to check for physical damage to CPU or the PCB around the socket area and to the extent that I can the socket itself(those contacts/pins are TINY and impossible to check) I cant see anything that looks broken at this stage. However as suspected i totally "did a number" on the plastic brushings, they are not in the best of shape.. at all.

If I cant see any damage to the CPU/CPU Socket Area what are the chances of it being damaged ?

If I was to obtain replacement bushings,cleaned off the TIM and redid that to and then refitted the H50 and attempted to test, would i run the risk of damaging memory/video card if fitted to a CPU/Mobo combo that was damaged ?

I am not in the habit of breaking stuff or being careless. I am usually a very careful person .. almost obsessively so at times. I think what went wrong was mostly down to the false assumption on my part that the H50 like all the CPU coolers I have fitted in the past had a design in place to make overtighting/overpressureing next to impossible (Scythe for instance as i recall has/had such a design) I just assumed that I could not screw up. I was wrong.

I would back down your overclock just a tad bit as 82ºc to me is a bit high. However, you can try re applying new TIM, and loosening/tightening the block.

Okay, so it looks like you're running at 4.0GHz w/ HT on and getting ~80c under max load. That's not bad, but it's not that great either. The problem size and memory you're using is putting the cpu under heavy stress, I typically do a problem size of 25854, similar to yours and my temps @ 4GHz w/ HT on 20 runs puts me around 67c-73c, but, I've also dialed in my core voltage, down to 1.21v. I noticed you said you're running yours at 1.275v. I'm willing to bet that if you can dial in your voltages a little better (something closer to the 1.21-1.23 range, that will help drop your temps a good 5c or more. In comparison, I'm running better fans and willing to bet if you replaced your fans with better ones, you'll be able to drop another 5c or more, bringing down to about ~70c (which is about where you should try to be) rather than the ~80c that you're at now.

Long story short, the temps seem about right for the type of fans you're using and the amount of voltage you're pumping through it. I don't think you need to re-seat your pump at all. By the way, what is your ambient temperature at? You also have to remember you have HT enabled, so that will add about 8-10c. As far as being safe, I think you're fine to be quite honest. I personally don't like going above 85c with this chip when it is 100% fully stressed. Also remember, even though it shows 80c, for your day-to-day operation, it's running more like ~45-55c 24/7. (Unless you do alot of encoding or folding) heheh
