Here are the newest pics of my H50 installation. The gaskets came in today and I was able to get them installed. After that and a clean up of my wiring my PC refused to POST. No beep & blank screen. So I started the basic pre-video POST diagnostic with the typical isolate/re-seat. Nadda! I then jumped the CMOS to clear it and it worked just fine afterward. Anyway pics!

Do you mean the ones from here:-

I purchased some from there and they are allen key socket. They screwed into rad just fine.

Also consider stepping down your *extreme* CPU overclock just a notch or two, and UP YOUR NB AND HTLINK SPEEDS!

They have a DRAMATIC IMPACT on your CPU AND OVERALL System speed

So, hopefully people don't mind me asking a "does this look right" question, but I am not sure myself, so i have to ask.

Right now, I am running a Phenom II 955 @
3.8Ghz
1.425v VCore
1.35v CPU-NB

Cooling this, I of course have an H50, cooled with a Scythe S-Flex F (pushing) and a Scythe "SLIP STREAM SLIM" Medium speed pulling (for space issues). Between the S-Flex and the rad is a TFC Xtender (31mm thick). The system is drawing air from the outside in as well. (The reason for the odd config is my Antec Nine hundred II case only has so much room.. with the 25mm fan and 31mm shroud, I only had room for a 12mm fan pulling).


So, the crux of my problem is this; my temps feel uncomfortably high. Before I have the above configuration, I had been using an Ultra Kaze (well, the equivalent made by JMC) pushing (no shroud) and the stock H50 fan pulling. With my system as above, a full load (prime 95) would push the temps up to 57-59C, which is way too high for the PII. After going to the new config, the load temps are only marginally better (55-57C), but much more silent.

Before i go through the pain of yanking off the H50 and reconnecting everything, I guess I am trying to gauge if these temps are normal for a properly setup system, or if it is seated wrongly, etc. The fan header shows the pump is going at the expected 1400RPM, and I don't hear any odd noises. Ambient at most in the house is 80F, and commonly lower.

Sorry for the long post.. any advice would rock!
So, I really do hate quoting myself, but I am at a loss here, and still looking for help.

Since making the previous post, I yanked out the H50, and lapped the block which showed there were some ridges (lapped with 800, 1500, and 2000 grit, wet and dry).

I also reworked the fans so that now i can fit two 25mm thick fans; so now its the S-Flex F pushing, and the stock H50 fan pulling (with a shroud on the S-Flex).

But no matter what, the temps are still high. The system still idles at 36-38 (the room is nowhere near that hot), and the loads can still get up to 56 on a prime run. I know I am seeing other PhII systems clocked the same with lower temps, so I am at a total loss.

did you lap the cpu itself as well? if you just lap the h50, it wont do any good if the other side isnt flat either. How did you lap it? did you take the bottom copper plate off or did you just hold the whole pump against sandpaper?
what are you using for TIM? How do you have the h50 mounted on the cpu? I noticed because if you mount it at a diagonal, then the surface of the h50 will not be on the cpu. Meaning: its not square with each other. There will be gaps where the screws are that will not be in contact with the cpu. So try and line it up so that the cpu is covered by the whole center. (hope that isnt confusing).

I think a problem is you having a 12mm fan. Its not going to be as strong as a CM R4 or even an Ultra kaze. you can mount a fan outside of the case. fan>case>shroud>rad>shroud>fan.

I've noticed that the H50 is quite sensitive to changes in ambient temps. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you saw a 5-7°C drop if the tests were performed at ~68-70°F.

I've just downclocked my 720BE (X4) to 3.5GHz/1.4v and I'm running P95 at an ambient room temp of 71°F. With high-speed Yate-Loons in push/pull (as well as 6 other fans), I'm seeing a max load temp of 45°C.

On very hot days, however, load temps seem to go up proportionately with increases in ambient temps (e.g., if room temps were to increase to 80°F, load temps would likely be in the low 50s).

Whats the point of getting two gentle typhoons for a push/pull when all you need is one to push(cause of the high static pressure) and then use some generic fan running at 1800 rpm for pull? Just wondering b4 I drop 30 dollars on 2. I'd rather spend 15 and still get the same results if possible.
