Not bad for a stock heatpipe cooler. I really wanted to OC my cpu well above 3.5 ghz, but my Mobo seems to be the culprit. My H50 can handle the temps even if I'm using 1.5v for the CPU voltage and OC'ing at 3.5. My temps at idle is at 24 deg C. At load, about 35 while playing BF:BC2. Cool temps but the mobo's limiting my OC potential......Well I'm just going to wait for the next AMD platform (Bulldozer+whatever chipset)....:)

Hey Keruvino, does your GTX 480's get loud or extremely loud when your playin a game or anything like that, just wondering cause i just got my GTX 480 yesterday morning, been muckin around with it, performs really well of course but to me, its just so efen LOUD! and gets hot so quickly, I was using MSI Kombustor for around 5mins at stock clocks and the GPU got up to 99C max with the fan speed at 100%, plus my room is cold as hell because of winter, do u tink that is normal??
No, that temperature is not normal.
I have them without OC and automatic fans, are playing between 75 - 85C º. And without the fans lit side of the box.
The fans never have reached 100%.
And room temperature 24 - 26c º.
This may not be the problem, I use the application of Nvidia (Nvidia System monitor) goes well and fits the drivers (Display Control Panel).
I hope to help.
A greeting.

Nice case and rig:toast:

I started water cooling with a Thermaltake Big Water 735 about 4 years ago. Nice little set-up, but you should look into a better cpu waterblock, pump and resevior. It also looks like you could fit a 3x120 radiator at the bottom of your case. You will see better temps:)
What are the temps on those 480's?

If it is true I would have to look at me a better cooling.
But for now I see no need and that keeps me acceptable temperatures. But something better to look in the future.
These are the temperatures of the 480's and the 980x to 4GHz. For every day.
Temperature 25-26c º.

Yea with stock speeds its around 40c under load. It goes to around 50c when I OC to 3.5
I had a couple of those AMD stock HP HSF's they aren't to bad for what they are aslong as you use good TIM (not P_O_S) had mine on an old Athlon64 x2 4800+ skt939 @2.8GHz and it sat at around 45~50c at full load

What are your load temps?
I would have to say that if your load temps stay cool as well, then change nothing:)

Ok i did a trade and got an H50 for my custom water loop i posted about 2 weeks ago. I had to do some hack job cutting to the back of the case but finally got it to fit really good. Only thing that doesnt fit good atm is the top of the case but i am going to cut on it alittle this afternoon or one of my days im off work. This H50 does good but not as good as the custom loop, but it beats stock cooling LOL. At stock clocks it idled at 21 deg cel and loaded at 32 deg cel for 1 hour on OCCT and IBT. I then tested it as unlocked to an x4 and OCed to 3.2ghz and it idled around 36 and loaded around 53 deg cel with ITB and OCCT. Its about 3-4 deg hotter than the custom loop i had but this little thing will fit in the case really good. Ive got the H50s rad in a push/pull with two coolermaster UV fans at 53CFM. Later on i might up it to two 100+CFM fans to see if temps go down further. also i will OC further tonight to see what more i can get out of it. here is some before and after shots. I followed along as best as i could on how Erocker setup his H50 in his Bgears case.

Nice set up there brandon. How's your ASRock board working out for ya?
This board is in fact the best AMD board i have ever owned. I OCs better than any board i have had (ive had some good ones like a DFI 790FX and a Asus M4A79T Deluxe) It unlocks chips pretty good as well. the NB runs cool even in the small case. all in all this board was the best bang for my buck! i got it for about 50$ shipped on the egg.

POSPC - Yea that card look big compaired to the rest of the board! if only i can find a stock dual slot cooler for it, it might lower temps alot

Very nice!:) what eactly did you cut to make it fit?
I cut the MB tray above the I/O shield about 1/2 inch and also cut 1/4 inch off below the 120mm fan slot. it isnt that straight of a cut, but with the H50s rad there, you cannot tell the difference.
