Honestly I say there's no need, someone will probably do it when theyre bored one day and conclude that there was no noticable difference. All modern heatsinks and blocks at designed to give 70lbs of pressure which is some 7 times what they used to be, it is more than adequate to give a constant plane of contact. It's the huge heatsinks which threaten to break loose from the upper cores that experience problems - when 70lbs just isnt enough.

I see no reason to need to pressure mod the H50.

The only time I'd want to do that is if the cooler isn't getting enough pressure and enough contact, and with the mount of the H50, there is more than enough pressure.

Dkev- you never did post pictures of the pressure mod Pictures say a thousand words and helpful for those who are better with visuals.

So you have a washer on back of the motherboard, then you put in the longer screw through the washer through the motherboard then into the holes that are in the h50 pressure bracket. Then what you do is you get a nut to put at the end of that screw and tighten the nuts in like fashion?

I know thats very general without screw/nut/washer sizes.. (if thats correct even).

How would it bend if theres a screw all the way through it?
It looks like someone needs to make the bracket in metal

Add me, I got my H50 today. Everything is set up but I think I'm going to do a bit of modding since my case is small and the way Asus built this board everything looks cluttered. I'll post picks when I'm done.

Mind if I join the club.........







Getting great temps with my H50 ... I didn't think so till I realized that my Tjmax was off. Once I set it to Intel's specs ( 90*Celsius ) these were my results

Oc'ed to 3.2GHz

CPUID CPU NameIntel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CPU AliasKentsfield
CPU SteppingG0

Temperatures (Everest Ultimate)

Motherboard32 °C (90 °F)
CPU26 °C (79 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #122 °C (72 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #225 °C (77 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #318 °C (64 °F)
CPU #1 / Core #424 °C (75 °F)

And my room temp is 74 *F

heres the Intel specs



you can find the whole document here

http://www.sendspace.com/file/zk6nnw
You have to download the pdf

I spent about 3-4 weeks trying different placements and different applications of artic silver and the best I found was a front mount with the thermal being applied in small dots then smeared thin with a plastic card it also helped that I decided to lap my H50
