Corsair H60 - what are your results? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
I know this is fairly off topic, but in regards to the H60, does anyone know if it'll have any clearance problems on my P55A-UD3?
In another thread, some dude had clearance problems with the capacitor caps around his socket, but I'm unsure if it'll be the same with my current board, and at the moment it's far too hard to check as my CNPS10X is being a noob and is a painful experience to dismount.
Anyway, would you guys recommend the H60 over the current air cooler? I'm considering it because at this moment in time, the CNPS is blocking one of my RAM slots which I find somewhat annoying.

Thanks y'all.

I just moved from my CNSP10X Extreme to the H60 and the CNSP10x did a better job of cooling on low... stay with your air setup as this cooler is not as good as it. I wasted my money imo.

When I installed my H50 I didn't have any TIM other than the preapplied one, so I just went with it.
Noob here. Can you do anything to remove the pre-applied paste then so we can do it ourselves? Seems from this thread it is a common reason for issues? I haven't gotten my parts yet so I don't know but I have the H60 on the way.

I removed the default stuff on my own and applied AS5. Still crap temps though.

hm...that's disappointing. I'll give it a try but if I need to, changing the heat sink is pretty straight forward right?

How did you get a push fan on there? I see no way of mounting another without specific screws from corsair that they do not sell....

...be creative..and problem solve..there are 4 screws provided..you really only need 2 to affix a fan to the radiator..use your imagination....

2 for one fan in push. 2 for the one in pull when they are tightened to the radiator it shouldn't matter.

try rotating the CPU Block so the tubes are positioned at the top; i simply could not get acceptable temps in any other position. Seems my h60 is defiantly not flat and needs to be lapped.. However try to mount the radiator so that the high point on the radiator is above the tubes for the pump.

Before changing my CPU block orientation i was seeing 36-45degrees idle and 64degrees+ on load. Now that its seated properly *glares at empty tube of AS5* 29-32c idle and 49-51load. If you are having trouble getting "decent" temps from this cooler don't blame the cooler; It is user error.

I made the mistake of taking off teh preapplied TIM and replaced it with AS5, that was a bad mistake. my idle temp at 5Ghz with the preapplied was around 26C (with a push/pull config). The problem with AS5 is that crazy 200 hour break in period. Right now, I'm running at 4.9Ghz at 1.43V and idle temp is aroud 30C...

You'll also have to make sure your air intake/exhaust makes sense and not all over the place. I have played around with different areas of the case as intake/exhaust and it made some differences. I used to have the back of my case as intake as well as from the front of the case and the top as exhaust (where i mounted the H60 P/P exhaust). Thinking that would be the best set up until i saw my temp at 40C on idle. Then i changed the position of all my intake coming in from the front of the case and mounted teh H60 exhaust to the back and up of the case with more exhaust fans as well and now i'm at 26c.

As far as the TIM goes, just make sure you are doing the break in period correctly.
