    Hi,

    I recently purchased a H50 cooler for my system and temps do not seem to be great. I was wondering if I could get some advice on these and see if I have installed it incorrectly or if this is normal.

    The system is i7 920 OC to 3.33Ghz. The temps as they stand are Idle:35C Load: 60C.

    I reseated the cooler and this had negative effect and temperatures jumped up. I did this a number of times and still no improvement. I then applied some AS5 and reseated and still no improvement.

    I've moved the radiator to the front of the case and placed a push/pull fan configuration on it but this has not helped. Single fan or double has no effect.

    System temp seems high as reported by Speedfan which is 50C but this I believe is due to the graphics card which idles at 61C.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have an H50 sitting on an i7 930 @ 4Ghz. This idols around 45c and under load 70-80c.
    This is with a push / pull Apache set up sucking air into the case (a Corsair 800D).
    From what I read, i7 chips run hot, my own temps are on the high side, but not critical levels. I use MX3 cpu paste on mine.

    That's reassuring.

    I was worrying that I had not installed it correctly.

    My Thermalright Ultra 120 idle temps were 42C which the H50 seems to do better on - but I did not re-check the load temps.

    If this 60C is what to expect then I'm happy.

    Fairly hot the past two weeks aswell (Weather wise..) I've seen a +5/+8 degree increase since winter time of my h50.

    Just one of those things i guess, when it gets to winter open your window and watch the temps drooop :)

    Your temps are good :)

    I bought the same Notua fans yesterday.

    I've only installed one which is pushing air into the radiator. The other one is a Scythe fan which is pulling air out.

    I'm planning on installing the second Noctua soon but I can't see it making much of a difference.
