Ok, my so called reliable Corsair H70 Cooler packed it in, pump failure. Needless to say I'm now in the market for a decent aftermarket cooling solution and please, refrain from Hyper 212 Plus or Evo ideas, had one on the chip before....it barely kept the thing cool. Anyways the stock heatsink is on it for the time being to make the system usable but here's the details ya'll like.

Gigabyte X58A-UD3R board
Intel i7 950 in the socket quad core hyperthreaded triple channel RAM supporting classic.
Housed in a HAF 932 with ahem.....lots of fans.

Stock Speed, 3.06Ghz which is kinda fine.
Preferred Speed (was running while under the H70) 4Ghz, up to 4.2Ghz

The H70 kept the temps at about 75 degrees Celcius under full stressed load at 4Ghz so this is the benchmark area.

Any suggestions considered, debated etc. And as noted above, this thing has a lot of fans in it already, so noise pollution, bah I can deal with noise.

We have user error here. Did you forget the TIM or maybe you simply don't deserve the best affordable air cooler at the present time. Either way, just exercise the 5 year warranty and get yourself the new H80i.

I did have TIM with the 212 Plus and a second fan....but at 4Ghz on a already hot Bloomfield i7....gets a LOT hotter and as far as warranty on the H70 goes, it's expired,

Direct from Corsair's website,

Cooling Products

Hydro Series™ (Models H60, H80, and H100) have a 5 year warranty
Hydro Series (Models H40, H50 and H70) have a 2 year warranty
Air Series™ products (Models A50 and A70) have a 2 year warranty


Been eyeing the Noctua NH-D14 though.......

That's a very good cooler, so are the Thermalright's. Their build quality and performance is outstanding.
