Thank you for the help. but tbh, if people on air are fine, why should the h50 handle it?Ummm, either you have too much voltage, or even though the pump is bolted down solidly , it may not be getting a good contact with the cpu.
Or, one of your fans could be the wrong way and you have set it up as a push push, thereby nullifying the effect.
Checked fans, they're both blowing out of the case.
What is your settings for the cpu in your bios, voltage, multiplier etc.
1.4v, default multi, 50x multi for turbo.
LLC, etc, on extreme.
CPU Fan on Turbo.
Ram at DDR3-1600
36oC idle doesnt seem to bad tbh, but 98oC seems fuked up, but it all depends on what your settings are.
I've seen people on air with higher clocks than mine, with higher voltages.
I have also heard that sometimes the h50 pumps sometimes stick, so give your pump a little knock and see if that makes a difference.
Knocked it, didn't do much/anything.
Umm, your cpu is at 5 gig, which is a hella overclock, So I wouldnt be surprised that it has those temps, especially using a h50, I would recommend a proper water cooling setup if you want to hit 5 gig and use that 24/7 as I dont think the h50 is adequate enough for that.
Turbo is not full speed, you need to disable the fan speed control entirely so it runs 100% 12v. I have turbo set on my 212+ and it definitely ramps up, but i don't think it gets to full 100% until around 75-80C and by that time it is too much for the h50 to keep up with i imagine.It's plugged into my CPU fan slot on the mobo (3pin). And it's set to Turbo in the BIOS.
that isnt the way you should be running it. the pump should be plugged into any fan header and the fan should be in the cpu fan header. the pump needs to run at full speed all the time and if it is in the cpu fan header it might not.The pump is plugged into the CPU fan spot, and the actual fans are plugged into any random motherboard fan spot.
Disabled Q-fan control, and everything is at 100% now. Which i think is 1400 RPM.Just have to make sure the BIOS fan speed is set to 100% for the pump.
I just picked up 2 new fans, both do 80 CFM each. Still same temps, same issues.This guy has a modded H50 and still has temp issues, but he only has 1 fan in pull.
Your fans also don't seem to pull much CFM and I am unsure of their static pressure. You should look into some better fans with good static pressure for the H50. Also take into account ambient temps, case airflow and exhaust or intake fan setup as well as TIM application.
Old ones we're 1,200RPM at around 45cfm i think.What speed are those fans?
I dont really hear anything. =\can you hear the pump working? with mine if i move the computer around before i turn it on i can hear some air bobbles moving through the pump.
From google your S-Flex's were 75 CFM... What about your TIM application? Try spreading it evenly across the processor as in a thin layer that covers it evenly. What's your ambient temp? What case do you have? And are the fans in intake or exhaust? There are many things you can experiment with right now and all the biggest factors are time and patience really.
Install HW Monitor and see what the pump is running at it should be 1400 RPM.
H50 was brand new. Which software would you recommend? I've tried reseating twice already.have you use the h50 on another proc before? use software to see if pump is running. if it running and you have it seated correctly, you lap job might be the cause.
Yep, bingo. Turned settings back to default, load topped off at like 65*c.For testing purposes you could also set the cpu back to default settings, run your stress test again and see what the temps are. If your still bouncing off the tjmax than you know something is definitely wrong with the cooler. You could also try a 3 pin to 4 pin adapter to make sure your getting the full 12v to the pump.
At stock you should be barely breaking 50C at load. Something is awry with the way you mounted your cooler, or your pump speed, or something.Yep, bingo. Turned settings back to default, load topped off at like 65*c.
Dropped back to 1.35v @ 4.7, topping off at 81*c.
Looks like I need to invest in a better cooler. Can't afford a whole watercooling setup (unless someone wants to trade for a q9650 lol).
Would the h70 be worth it? Or maybe D14, Tunic Tower, or even Megahalms.
Set it up as intake, still high temps. 80's on Cores 1 & 2, 70's on Core 0 & 4.Before you ditch it setup the fans as intake where they can pull in fresh air. And before you purchase another cooler take a look at what I posted up top.
I also don't think your fans are set to 100% in the BIOS. HW Monitor is pretty accurate with those readings in my past experience.
Pump is at 100%, I have all fan controls off, so it's all running at 100%. Plus my 120mm fans are connected to a molex plug.At stock you should be barely breaking 50C at load. Something is awry with the way you mounted your cooler, or your pump speed, or something.
I only have 1 issue with it... and thats I don't have enough space for the res in my case =(It comes with everything, but I noticed it's the delta kit but it has the Rasa block pictured for some reason.
Anyway here is the correct one @ $129. Also if you enter coupon code facebook you'll get 5% off from jab-tech.
If you want to order from sidewinder I would verify with them before ordering it to make sure it's the Rasa kit and not the Delta.
The kit comes with EVERYTHING you need for a CPU loop. Pump, tubing, block, rad, fans, barbs, res. It's a complete kit they only thing many people change that buy it is the tubing some complain that the tubing they give you is cloudy looking. Other than that it's a great alternative to the H50/70 for a bit more and to dip your feet into watercooling.
Thank you for the help. but tbh, if people on air are fine, why should the h50 handle it?
oh, and both are lapped to 2000 grit.
Its gotta be. I read this this thread and have seen everything else tried and tested or rearranged. Like I said thats the ONE thing that sticks out.It's probably the lapping job. I dropped 12c off of my old H50 when I lapped it didn't even do the CPU. That's with the same fans, TIM, mounting area, ambient etc etc.
