well actually arctic silver 5 is awesome, so either way i had to replace it since they put too much of shin-etsu
i have read somewhere the listings of TIM and as5 along with one of the shin-etsu were about the same level in terms of effectiveness. can't remember though

I agree with ya, but I looked at a lot of setups in this thread before I installed it. Majority seem to have it the way I do. I didn't think it was a bad thing. Obviously I didn't check 900 pages, but I checked quite a bit of them.

If it'll cause issues later on, I'll definitely change it around, if I needed.

I was speaking to Nightz2k. He's got his Rad with the fittings up. The fittings need to be down so they stay liquid filled. The other way promotes air blocking.

Long dry winter, very short spring, early summer temps.

This entire wkd has been an absolute swelter! And in turn my temps have been goin nuts.

Overclocked 3.66
Idle 46 42 42 43
Max load 63 60 59 59



CPUID differs a little but real temp/speedfan correspond so i guess there the ones to go with.
Our friggin room just has no air to breathe at the moment damn the UK for being so friggin humid!
I feel with our new house move in just around the corner, going to have to get an air conditioning unit. Getting my new fans and such this week, and even though these temps are still lower than most it bleedin messes with me head when my temps rise like this!
From what I have been reading in the last few pages, front intake mounted in the drive bays (preferably with shrouds) is the way to go aye ? no one has come up with an absolute stinker of a new mounting possition ?

Not sure I trust CPUID too much since it's stating that my CPU temps are 85c on the average. And I have ALOT of airflow on my MoBo. Everything else seems to be frigid...

MoBo is supposedly 33c average
All my cores are 32c average
Hitachi is 31c average.

So I don't see how it could come up with an 85c is that my onboard GPU that is that temp? It lists it as nVidia nForce3(glad this thing is a loaner board. Ready to move into mine) but states CPU as well. If that's onboard GPU too bad Corsair doesn't make a cooler for that too.

Yeah, mine too. Ambient is at 25c already..
The heat given out by your GTX275 can't be helping, my HD5870 is idling @ 33c!

Could you remove the AS5, lap the H50(doesn't void warranty) and re-apply?
Then post some results before and after lapping for us?

Aye it could be your on board gpu, I remember one of my old MB had a ****ty little ATi thing and it ran friggin hot! I shouldnt worry about that to much at all tbh.

Aye! Well my 5870 is being purchased tmoz! And then I'll be moving my rad/fans away from the main heat generating culprits, well it will be above my HDD, but they run pretty cool tbh.
System temp is like 42c now, and weather is stating outside temps at 22c but I know its hotter than that, and ofc our room is going to be at least 25c ambient.
Its becasue we have so much friggin ****e in here no room to move about!

I don't really wanna adjust anything cuz i know i am fine at 3ghz and i do KNOW we won't get any more fps if we do clock it more. A theory i have but it's been known you won't get much more performance if you do clock it further but it's been known to increase performance eventhough some claim it don't. O well. I have thought of moving the rad inside my 5.25 bay where it normally is designed for a pump to sit there since it's a 1200 and i read the manual it was designed for water cooling and thought about maybe lying the rad in there and have a fan just blow air on it as a intake. I don't know if should lol. Temps are fine. I just wanna see if something can change if i can move the rad away from my sli set up.
Well, I just got to 3.92 Ghz... 20 passes on Intelburn, OCCT and Prime. Gonna call it stable until proven otherwise

I want to get the CPU up coz Im folding and SMP seems the way to go ATM. This little H50 never ceases to amaze me in keeping the ol' CPU cool... happy trails!
