I got this from overclock net supposedly from Intel.

Core i7 specifications:

Vcore Max = 1.375
Tcase Max (CPU temperature) = 68c
Tjunction (Core temperature) = 73c

Checked today and my fans won't be in for a couple of more days. At that time I'm going to remove the cooler and check things and install the two new fans and go from their. I might of installed to little or to much #5; I should be able to tell by the pattern it leaves. I will get back. Something is wrong some where. It might be a faulty cooler.The in and out tubes to the radiator are never over 2 deg c different. I use a infrared dot gun to read them. Where did you get the tmax info?

From Overclockers net. They were talking about your CPU and heat problems. One of the guys gave those numbers and said they were from intel. From what I have read that is a good CPU but very prone to heat problems. You may have to get a bigger cooler. The reviews I was reading seemed to be that anyone who could get over 3.8-4.0 was using real watercooling.

Keep in touch. I am intersted.

I just might have to go to all out water cooling, which will mean another 2 weeks of research. I will check out o/c.net.

There are many O/C net groups. I don't remember which one I was on, but certainly any of them can give info on watercooling. They are the experts. If you want to try air cooling, and you have a large case read these comments on the Noctua NH-D14 . But it is a monster.

Just a little info on thermal paste.
80-way Thermal Interface Material Performance Test


Thorough review with links to 'best way to apply' as well.


Here is the CPU specs from Intel:

Intel® Core™ i7-960 Processor


Tcase is 67.9°C add 5°C for core temps (Tjunction) is 72.9°C.

VID Voltage Range is 0.800v-1.375V (max CPU voltage)

So you're right essenbe.

Thank you all and it feels great to get all this help. After doing lots of things and reading even more I have come to the conclusion that I'm asking the H50 to do more than it was designed to do. One of the four fans I ordered came in. So I'm waiting. I don't want to give up on the H50 until I change the fans. Before I go any more crazy, I just might sit on this until Corsair H100 is available. Should be soon because it is being advertised in the U.K.

I am not really sure I helped very much. It's kind of hard if you can't see whats going on. I'm sure you know what I mean. You may be right about the H50, it probably wasn't made to handle the amount of heat you are getting. Thanks for keeping me updated and keep me advised of the progress. I'l do what little I can to help.

With dual Noctua 120mm fans in case air push pull exhaust I'm able to oc my AMD Phenom 3.4 quad to an absolute stable 4.0 with my H50. I will at some point go with a H70 and move the H50 to my second quad rig currently air cooled via a large Zalman. I've been doing quarterly blow out of the fans, case and radiator and afterwards I do see temps fall a little bit so there is still maintenance with these systems as we all know. Good luck, the Cheese
