    Who thinks I should add another corsair fan to the back of the H50? Think it would drop temps about 2 deg?

    It might but remember that H50 radiator is kinda small so you may be at the max for cooling capacity for the pump and CPU block. Do you have another radiator you can splice into the unit?

    I really don't want to splice into it cause it barely fits as it is. I will add some higher CFM fans I had with another cooler to see what it does for temps

    2 fans helps.

    I had good luck with a pair of Cooler Master Sickleflow R4's. Although I'm using two Xiggy fans now with about the same results.

    This CPU is a power sucker! 140W STOCK LOL I don't think the H50 can cool over that well.

    This CPU is a Phenom II 940 Black Edition AM2+ 140W. May sell it and try to locate another low level 6 core to replace it. It is a hoss of a CPU but run quite hot even on water.

    I found that the Phenom II 945 in Lauren's machine is kinda like that too. Got the same temps with that CPU with the Hyper 212+ with plus/pull fans as I did with the H50 when it was my CPU. :ohwell:

    Looking at low level xeon chips for 1155, May sell the whole combo to pickup another H61 setup.

    My Intel G440 Sandy will be here today!

    *Edit*

    Who said H61 can't OC LOL

    Based on my experience with the H50, push and pull definitely helped my temps greatly.

    Yes, a push pull fan setup helps a bunch with the H50's. Especially if you purchase a couple of decent fans. The Corsair fans are really crap to be honest.

    I will take my screws that came with the H50 over to ace hardware and get 4 more and add another fan.

    SOmething odd just happened! My Bgears case has a touch front panel and it requires a small extended cable between the 20/4pin to the motherboard well I kept hearing beeps throughout the house and at first I thought it was the dish washer or our stove but finally I noticed the lights in the PSU flashing like once a second and it was power surging! I quickly turned it off and wiggled that cable I mentioned (had previous issues were it wouldn't power at all) and now all is well but I am glad it didn't fry the board... I need to check all the connections in the adapter or install a normal power button.

    Sounds like that thing is just itching to burn your system down. I have a nice little solution for it if your interested.

    I keep getting a computation error on the Clean Energy Project Phase 2 on one of my machines but the others seem fine :confused:

    Anyone have a problem with this project on their machines or know what is causing the error???

    The rig that it's happening to is listed in my spec's (Julia)

    I have never seen the "error". However, i have several pages of "inconclusive" in various projects.

    I get errors of various projects from time to time. I don't think there's much you can do about it. :toast:

    I believe "inconclusive" results can occur for a variety of reasons.... as long as you are getting credit for most of them I wouldn't worry too much about it. I had a bunch of them when I first started but currently only have one of them.

    It happens Yes, but it's unusual that it is only happening on one machine. I tried several different hardware configurations but still get the errors. I'm guessing that it's an issue with Vista... hopefully it will go away when I switch the machine over to Win7-64 Pro :shadedshu

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I had it happen on just one of mu machines also. It cleared up after a couple days. Remember when I made the post about projects stalling? That's when it was happening. And it was just happening to the Drug Search for Leishmaniasis project on mine. Mine would get to a certain percentage then stall. Time for completion would just get higher and higher. Had one that got to 56 hrs before I aborted it. This went on for about 2 days , my ppd suffered because of it. Then it seem to straighten itself out. I didn't make any changes in the system at all.


    Oh it was the x6 machine I was having it happen to. Also if you just let them sit there at the stalled state they will error out.

    Look up. Look way up.
    I have had problems with CEP as well. Only when overclocked however. So needless to say I've opted out of that project. I mean really....if it offers up errors on stock speeds...then maybe their equations are unsolvable? :laugh:
