On an AMD CPU, that's expected, since those cpu's shouldn't be hitting +50c anyways. nice setup btw.

He is 100% right and I would have installed it in this manner anyway you get far better results especially pea method of spreading if the heatsink remains as still as possible and no twisting or misalignment of the paste happens you can end up with more paste on one side than the other.

And I cant believe anyone would recommend anything but drawing in cooler air from outside the case in a push pull configuration.

Nice post and I'd advise everyone to at least try it before you knock it.

Anyone looking to maximize it's potential should look at getting the new akasa viper 120mm fans for it, unless a better fan between now and then arrives on the market.

You need to understand that when clocking with high volts on 65nm chips even 1.45v you are going to be hitting 70c +or even 80's if using a proper full cpu load app and not prime 95 or orthos.And if this way has brought that temp down by a good margin it's sage advise to someone about to dump the cooler for another because it's load temps are too high.

No good saying oh my cpu never goes over "whatever" when it's a mild overclock or at stock voltages.

You should put the backplate in place and use tape to hold it in place then screw it in no need to do what you suggested.

there's no point comparing temperatures unless you are running the same cpu at same volts and clocks and same ambient temps.

Dang it C64... I don't need to know about another good fan... I have started a fan collection here... I have nine fans of various sizes stuffed in my box. One more on the way, Corsair memory cooler.

It's a XFX, stock. I did the paper test, it draws air from the back and blows the hot air in the case.

It doesn't matter, that card blew a long time ago. Currently using a 5870 w/AC Accelero EXTREME 5870 cooler now.

Just my toughs on this discussion on airflow.

If your H50/H70 is intake it might be preferable with negative pressure in your case, but you must remember if your GPU is exhausting, the airflow over your gpu will greatly reduced because the gpu fan will bee starved of air, and revers airflow might occur in your gpu.

Another consideration if intake is used, is hot air from gpu can/will enter the radiator of the H50/H70,(if it`s able to push it out) and the air is not filtered so dust build up in the radiator could become grater.

Using exhaust for the H50/H70, a positive air pressure in the case might be preferable, this will aid in pushing air true the radiator and assist an exhausting gpu with airflow, if your case also has filters on the fans the dust buildup in the radiator will be far less.

So evaluate your components airflow characteristic and chose whats best fore your components.

Yeah that fan set set up is absolutly terrible. You should go and buy all of the same fan unless special ones for special components and have the sam number of fans in taking and exhausting so the CFM balance out. i have 6 fans in total, all green l.e.d. and cooler master ones that pump out like 70 cfm at like 19 db. And when i took out just one exhaust fan my northbridge temps rose on average 4 degrees c. Redo your set up man....
