I guess i will need to do an official measurement, but from the local thermostat, It cant be much more than 75-80F (at most) (the therm is set to 70F). I know the idle temp is commonly a bit higher than ambient, but 20F more seems like way too much.

The other thing that i don't like, is how fast the temp jumps. If i start up prime, in under two seconds, it will go from 36-38C to 48-49C. Is that normal for this system?

Damn, you've got nice temperatures there.. I'm running 3,8Ghz right now @ 1.344v and it's at 35ºC just surfing and msn (Skype and steam on background).

Do you think they're too high :/ ?

I simply used zip-ties and took 2 corners from each fan and tied them to both sides of the case, and it's fine.

However I must say that in my case, I didnot get any temperature decrease, it's same I would say, very weird, before I had it exhaust and now in front intake, should be better, I don't know why it's not, i might consider buying some proper thermal paste (I have the stock one), coz I think something must be wrong.

What do you guys think?

That is strange, Should defo be seeing some type of drop in temps. Not taking the piss or anything but are the fans both set as intake ? Is there anything which could be supplying the new setup with heat ? Tv or something in front of intake of the pc etc, did you reseat the H50 but not reapply fresh thermal compound ? Is there any kinks in the hose from pump to rad ?
Would have thought you would be seeing some lower temps for sure!
I bleeding well hope I do!

Oh on another note, the stock TIM is Shin-etsu and it is really good TIM, but alas they have just put too much on it. A fresh reapplication and the appropiate amount of the same stuff will actually drop your temps.

Maybe it could take hit from my monitor. The fans are both intaking.

I have it like that right now, I put my hand between case and monitor but don't notice any heat... What do you think can be wrong?

The jump is normal but after the initial jump it should slowly ramp up to its max temp.

OK, feel a little better; that is what it does.

I hate being so experienced, but my last system was a full watercooling get up, so the change here is a little disconcerting. I had a JPI Performance OTIS rad, VIA 1300 pump, etc... until the acrylic block literally shattered and hosed my system down. After that, i figured I would keep it simpler.

Well, I know my screen does produce a fair bit of heat and where your pc is placed it would by the looks of things intake that heat from the screens. But for it to be almost around the same temps as exhaust is quite surprising. Tbh I really wouldnt know what else to advise.
Perhaps anyone else here have any clues ?

I used MX2 on mine. Have it set-up in the front drive bays as well with 2 X 25mm shrouds and 2 X Ultra Kaze 2000 rpm fans in push/pull. When I'm on Skype or surfing temps climb quickly to about 31-33 C. Idle means exactly that, computer has no programs running on it except temp monitor and background virus protection etc. Just moving the mouse will cause the temps to jump up a few degrees.
