Bad temps with h50 and i7 950?r

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
So I wanted to check with you guys if this is normal temps for a i7 950 with stock settings and a h50 using a push pull setup. I just reapplied new thermal paste so I don't know if it's actually that accurate yet but its been a few hours.

My h50 radiator is pluged in to the CPU_FAN slot so it should be using 12V if I recall correctly. If not can anyone tell me what the 12v slot is on my motherboard?

Also I checked in BIOS and it said that my CPU FAN (radiator) was running on 1400 RPM, don't know if that's normal or not.

If its worth mentioning my room temp is little above normal.

My temps without load:
40C~

Temps with 20% load:
50-55C~

Haven't checked any higher though.

you have an i7, they can take temps way higher then 55c, load up the cpu to 100% using intel burn test, prime95. one of those programs. then check your temps. what thermal paste did you put on the unit after you replaced it? because the stock paste on the h50 is some of the best stuff you can buy.
idle temps are completely useless.

Thats a bit hot for just 20% load and no OC.

Doesn't seem too bad... You have a lot of heat in that case with GTX480 in sli as well as an i7...

Right now I have a h50 and a 920 and I'm at about 35C with my case open...

The h50 isn't REALLY meant to handle big clocking of an i7 (with extra volts)

That being said, the i7s will take a whole lot of heat. 75C isn't a big deal at all.

Arctic Silver 5 I used.

May have I failed or should I wait more days for improvement before using a stress test?

Just stress test it. If you hit 80C then you may have a problem

I7s take a beating.

What test do you recommend and should I just turn it off it hits > 80C?

Thermal paste needs the opportunity to "break in" before it will yield it's optimum results. I was getting the low-mid 30's on my H50 at stock speeds. There are a lot of variables at play when measuring CPU temps, but never assume that any two chips will respond exactly same even when all else is equal. The H50 is a nice cooler, but miraculous it's not.

even with curing the difference will be nominal, between 1-2C on average.

simply put, some chips run hotter than others. my 920 runs significantly cooler than a friend's 950, and another buddy has a 930 that runs around the same as my 920. if you can, change out the fan on the radiator or do a push/pull configuration if you want to reduce the temps a bit more. most h50 users that i've seen throw 2 scythe GT 1850s on their rads and call it a day

I think you paraphrased what I said?
