Actually if you buy shin-etsu & re-apply with it.. it actually lowers more... that is what happened to me, I already had tested AC5, OCZ & MX3.. still shin-etsu re-applied did a better job instantly.

ah right, so your basically saying that the amount and method to which the shin-etsu was applied to the H50 coolers heatsink isnt providing optimal heat dissipation ?
How did you reapply the Shin-etsu ?

Think I might pick some of this up aswel then along with fans/new gpu etc
Google it first, MX2 or MX3 is clearly better. Problem with TIM H50 comes with is there is simply way too much of it on there (but the TIM itself is good). Wipe it off and clean with rubbing alcohol then re-apply whatever you wish. Temps will be better (not 8 degrees unless you messed somthing up, usually 1-2 degrees better).

Cleaned with alcohol then I did an "X" in the center since I have a quad... it doesn't really need to be an X it coudl be a pea size drop.. any method works good.. just don't exagerate on TIM

So what did you do on the quad? I think it'd be awesome to see each thermal paste test and how low temps go with it even at load. I would like to see apply methods too to see which improves better. I'm tempted to try a different thermal but my temps are great with the thermal it came with. It took 3 days to notice more drops.

Aye! I have read that the "X" shape on the cpu is the way to go, I have some Isopropanol to clean with perhaps I shall get some more Shin-etsu then, I'm hoping with the new fans/intake setup and new TIM my temps "should" be even lower!

Hey guys,

I found this to be a helpful source of information on topic: (And it is pretty much what pcnuttie is asking for isn't it?)

Beside actual test of 80 TIMs, they also talk a lot about preparation of surfaces, pressure and the way to apply the TIM.

My packages with IC Diamond and 3 tubes of Shin-Etsu should be arriving tomorrow in mail ... as well as ArctiClean solution ... seems like it will be a busy evening

Is there any performance increase in lapping the H50? If so how much?

Can I join? I have the Asetek 240mm LCLC. It's not exactly the Corsair H50 per-see, but it's pretty much exactly the same thing, just with a 240mm radiator, and it's made by Asetek, the same company that helped to design the H50.

Recently(after I took the picture) I've added 25mm shroud behind the two push fans, which has helped drop load temps by about 2 degree C.

You can buy it for around $90, not that much more than an H50.
