Corsair H60 - what are your results? - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I switched my H50 and H70 both to as5 and dropped almost 5 degrees.. Might have had something to do with the mount though. The H50 I had to redo a couple times but persistance paid off.

Not saying the shin etsu is crap, as it has a great reputation.. I think just the factory application is not perfect, so if you can redo it yourself it should improve.

Yeah, it could be his mounting that is causing the issue.

You do need to put quite a bit of pressure on as well when you tighten it up.

I'm getting about ~8C above ambient at normal idle and about 19C above ambient at load. (These are very rough estimates, at stock voltages).

I had to reseat a few times though. My fans are set up to intake.

Sorry to hi-jack the thread guys, but would i be better off leaving the pre-applied sin estu on my h50 or scrape it of, clean up with alcohol and re-apply some mx-4?
post #16 of 29
I'd leave it on and see how it goes.

I never had any problems tbh.

If you put it on, and you find that it's not as good as you thought then replace it. Just take your time and don't push the HSF on and then take it off again too many times, this'll just ruin the paste that's on there.

The main reason why most users report getting better temps with AS5, MX4, or really any other TIM in replacement of the stock Shin Etsu paste is merely because Corsair preapplies a pretty ridiculous amount of paste on it. It's not because Shin Etsu is not as good as the others, it's because there is too much applied. I bet if you had your own tube of Shin Etsu and applied that yourself it would yield better temps.

When I installed my H50 I didn't have any TIM other than the preapplied one, so I just went with it.

Well I put on some AS5 and I don't really know how to get another fan on it because it needs special mounting screws and does not come with another set. I cannot get another fan on it with normal fan screws. Also how would I go about mounting it properly other than making sure it is square on?

I have it as exhaust too btw as there is no where for me to mount it to have as an intake.
