H70 Temps?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I'm running an h70 with I7 930 running completely stock speeds atm due to temp concerns. The room temp is about 75F and have a cooler master 6900 adv. with every fan slot filled and some that i even zipped tied in there, (yes i know it might be trashy or "not clean" by some standards but i like it cool : ) Oh and I applied Arctic Silver 5 paste like a day or so ago. Regardless, the cpu temp is running like 35C on stock settings and running the h70 as intake. The temp after I applied the paste was ~29.95C. I attempted a 3.8ghz overclock today but my memory is garbo so that failed terribly. However, why would my cpu be running higher at idle now and why so high? Please help me I'm confused.

Also, the fan configuration: 2 top 140mm exhaust fans, 2 side 120mm intake fans, three front 120mm intake fans, two ultra kaze 120mm intake fans on the bottom, cpu tray fan 80mm intake, system blower, and the 2 120mm fans for h70. and load temps are about ~57.25 after like 5 min at 100%.

First off, Welcome to OCN!

Second, those temps are exactly what you should expect with that cooler, those are a tad better than what I was getting with my h50, unfortunately the h70 doesn't really get to close to the temps of a real water cooling setup. Also are the fans on the h70 pushing air into the case or out of it?

Edit nvm I see it is pulling air in, I would push the hot air out of your case instead of into it.

: ) thank you for a very quick response! So you would use them as exhaust and not intake? Also, any idea about why the temp would go up? I mean obviously i'm new but it seems that the paste setting up would lower the temps not increase them?

Well the thermal paste that comes with the H70 is actually better than AS5, and yeah I would set it up in an exhaust config. Also those temps are still pretty good.

I don't mean to be nosey, but any tips on reaching a stable overclock with this rig? I can run prime95 for 5-7 min before it crashes. the kicker is that I don't think its the cpu as you can see. I read people saying their i7 is stable at like 70C!

I think I understood that

So I'll tell you this. With Arctic silver 5 it takes approximately 200 hours for the paste to Cure. Once the paste cures you should see a nice temperature drop.

Run prime on stock for a few days straight. As5 takes about 200hrs to cure.

Then for oc'ing just up ur multiplier one step at a time til it fails prime or won't boot. Then add a little voltage and continue.

Edit: someone beat me to it. Lol

First, why did you remove that stock paste? It's supposedly one of the best pastes out there (Shin-Etsu). AS5 is still good albeit a little outdated compare to other ones.

As for your temps, might wanna try and reseat that H70 again and also tighten those 4 screws that hold the CPU bracket in place (be careful not to over tighten them though). Check out H50/H70 club for more info and advices. Mine's running with 2 Scythe GT AP-15 as intake and never have any problem with temps but since you have a different case, might want to experiment with either intake or exhaust.


Oh and welcome to OCN.

How did you apply the as5? and how much did you use?

Get better fans for the rad the stock ones are just ok. Get a couple more kaze ultras on there.

Also you should have used the paste that came pre applied to the h70 it is shin etsu and better than as5.

With speedstep I get down as low as 22 at idle at 20 ambient with speed step off it's more like 32. Rarely see anything above 55 in anything but a stress test. This is on a 980x at 4.1ghz and 1.3v so you should be able to get better temps.

I have mine exhausting air from inside the case not ideal but I don't have many other options in my case. Just be sure you have plenty of intake to keep the interior temps low.

The other thing I find is ifnyou have it on the back as an exhaust too powerful ofna top fan can make things warmer. I found a 200mm low rpm fan is just enough.
