MyBlaster Posted November 18, 2010 Share Posted November 18, 2010 I just got my new H50 and I'm replacing the stock i7 930 heatsink on my first build. Here's the deal: I got the H50 two days ago, installed it for the first time and immediately the ASUS Mobo software said 93 degrees CPU and 89 degrees for system (Unsure if this was correct, seems absurd especially for computer to be that hot). I rebooted the computer and the temps were fine for an intel stock cooler, at around 32 degrees. Progressively my temps were climbing on the cpu until above 40 degrees and inching close to 50 when navigating Win 7. I ran Prime 95 and my temps reached a scorching 85 degrees on the cpu so I immediately stopped it, other tests of Prime 95 were at 78 degrees and climbing 1 degree every 3 seconds. To make a long story short. I got my H50 and it's not cooling properly. I'm sure all smartfans are off and I've been checking the motor and the fans, both run at around 1360 and 1750 (give or take 30 rpms) respectively. When I've removed the Water block and re installed I noticed that the CPU is not covered in thermal, but no matter how many times I reinstall it won't sit properly. Is it my mobo (CPU Retention bracket maybe?), or something else. I really just need some input, please help. My AIM is Yungxclusive2K9 and my Skype is (ISTimberland) please leave a message here or message me using one of those services if you think you could help. I would really appreciate any help. #Update: I removed the stock themal on the h50 and put some (An)tec Formula 5, I know the cpu should be much cooler regardless of the thermal not curing.
