-RaptoR- Posted October 8, 2010 Share Posted October 8, 2010 Hello... Another H50 high temp issue it seems. I have recently upgraded from my old Intel Q6600 (OCed to 3.6GHz at 1.552v - this was a bloody hot chip) to an i7 950. This was an excellent cooler on my Q6600... However, since I've had the 950 (D0 - 1.18V-1.2V stock), my temps have been pretty damn horrible. I am using a push/pull config (using 2x coolermaster fans) mounted to the top of my 800D. Currently its set up as an 'exhaust' config - but I have also had the side panel off so that should make any difference. TIM is AS5. Temps are 38-42C idle and 75+ under load (P95 or IBT) @ stock. Ambient is 19-20C. The CPU also has a spread of around 6C between core 0 and core 3 under 100% load... I have remounted the H50 multiple times now. I have tried the normal install (push into bracket then twist and tighten down) as well as some of the other methods mentioned (such as fastening the H50 down directly.) Because my motherboard supports LGA775 and 1366 heatsinks, I have tried mounting the H50 using both of these configs also. No luck. This thing is fastened down firmly and wont budge. I have tried varying amounts of AS5 also... The pumps RPMs report normal ranges (about 1350-1400RPM) Not sure what else to try... help?
