Well it will get them off either way It sort of dissolves that pad so it comes off clean. And no, heat doesn't work. Makes it stick better. I tried that too!

This depends upon the diameter of the fan hub, but generally speaking I would not use a shroud that is < 1/2" - 3/4".

Hey everyone!
Been lurking and reading this thread for the last 3 weeks while I was researching the parts for my new build. Well I got the CPU last the other day(core i7 980x ftw!) and started putting it together.

I got a few questions about the H50 installation though.

-I noticed that you put 2 strips of adhesive tape on the bracket behind the motherboard to keep it attached to the board while you insert the retainer ring on the top side of the board. I was worried about that because the tape went over a row of pins on the underside of the board. I'm not sure what they call them but it's those sharp silver spikes that go through the PBC board. Well the adhesive tape would lay right on top of a row of those and was worried if it would cause a short of some sort(the tape is rubber based right?)

-Do I have to use the adhesive tape? My case has a removable motherboard tray and can be layed on it's side with no problems. I had to return my motherboard because it wouldn't boot and I had to take it apart again. I get my replacement tomorrow(amazon free overnight shipping ftw again!).

-I also noticed that when I removed the water pump from the top of the CPU that the thermal paste was at least 95% intact so it looked like it was just smudged a little bit on the top right part of the cpu where it left a tiny bit of it on the cpu which I cleaned up with a paper towel. Would it be ok if I just left it like it is and just put the water pump back on like it is when I get my new board? I have some MX-2 arriving from amazon tomorrow too btw.

When I put it together the first time and turned on the power it lit up like normal but didn't get a beep from the speaker and the motherboard LED showed a "b8" or "68" code. I looked it up and it seemed like most people online think it has something to do with the memory sticks. I'll know tomorrow either way since I have 1 pair of 6GB DDR3 from kingston and 1 from OCZ both are on the compatable list.

-One last question. I attached a picture of some screws one of my friends got me at home depot. They seem to fit just fine but the only difference is these have a sharp end and was wondering if it's ok if I use these to attach one of my fans to the other side of the rad. I will be using 2 cooler master R4's in a push/pull exhaust configuration.

I'm sorry for the huge wall of text. Just wanted to get all my questions out of the way. I've had a lot on my mind lately.

Dropped my load temp down to 47C from 53C tonight.

Replaced all the stock case fans with Xigmatek 140mm fans and Xigmatek 120mm fans. I admit that I'm vain when it comes to how my PC looks, I like these fans as they add color but aren't overly bright (especially compared to the blue LED fans that were previously in the case). I then added a Lian Li Fan Module and mounted two fans together then the rad and then another fan - creating and push/pull within the drive bay.

Here's a picture taken with a really bad camera phone, but helps get the idea of what it looks like.



The main reason for taking everything apart tonight was that I never really liked the look of the push/pull mounted on the back 120mm fan, it felt like everything was just cramped. I had extra 5.25" bay space so I took advantage of it and I'm very pleased with the outcome. Overall the case looks cleaner/space-ier and it dropped my loads by a decent amount.

Here's how nice and open it looks now near the northbridge.
