I'm not sure if its high or not lol
Thanks i've got everything crossed.
Pea sized drop in the middle and let the cooler spread it.
The line method can get too much on the sides and ooze out over the edge of the IHS on the cpu.
yay got one thing right!!!
That's pretty crazy. When I installed my H60 and ran prime95, I only hit 54C after about 2.5 hours, and that was overclocked. Is your fan even plugged into the mobo?
Yeah it definitely is!!! and the pump as other people asked.
Question for you, is the corsair logo facing out on your radiator or facing in?
hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, you neeeeeeeeeeeeeed to catchhh uppppppp
rad, you mean fan? have the fan blowing into the rad
hmmm, it's blowing air out the back of case at min, will turn that round as well tomorrow. Didn't do a very good job here did I? lol
@manofthem, can you look in your BIOS and see what your H60 pump speed is please.
@freebie, is better to have the fan blowing cold air from outside, into the rad, but whichever way you mount the fan and rad, have the fan blowing INTO the rad for best results.
Looking from the back of my case, the logo is not visible on the fan. The dan is blowing into the case. This is the direction of the fins on the fan: (--->. Make sense?
Thanks guys. my fan is on wrong way round, will be changing that first thing tomorrow as well.
and i've just found a video now to help me fit it, because i apparently need help lol
That is really not the issue here , Minor at best . You can always put a second fan on it and that would fix it for sure . But I have found that no matter what way the fan was put on my rads it mad little to no difference at all , You do not want the fan to blow into the case as that will blow heated air inside and onto your hardware . Just keep the fan blowing out maybe put the fan on so it blows out over the fins . At any rate you need to get the wb refitted and let us know what is going on after you have done this .
Just used SpeedFan to get fan speed readings, and this is showing two speeds, 4383 and 1386 which is much closer to you're 1440.
But don't you want the cool air blowing over the radiator so the heat can escape? I have my fan blowing in, bringing cooler air in, and then 2 exhaust fans on the top of my case which "should" kick out the hot air... I figured that would be better than having hot air blowing through the radiator, which would happen if the fan was blowing from inside out.
or does what I'm thinking not really matter?
BEST RESULTS would be outside to inside, but I have my setup blowing case air over rad going outside. the temps are still good.
@freebie, strange result there showing 2 speeds for your pump, lets hope manofthem comes back with his pump speed to clear your mind.
Will check pump speeds hang on...

See my fans on my RAD's ? they all blow Away from the case this is the best way to have your fans set up IMHO . Blowing that air into the case is just adding heat were heat is not needed JMHO is all .
that set up may work, but it sure is ugly
Speeds from bios
from back of case, no logo
a little help here!!!! which one is your pump connected to?
Crank Up that CPU fan speed I think that is were you have the Pump connected to right ? if so crank it up to the MAX !
Looks like pump is under Power Fan Speed. Rad fan is CPU fan
cheers dude, so freebie can be cool his pump is ok @ ~4300rpm
