Default Cooler Master V8 cooler.

I have this installed on my 2500k and at idle with no OC I run about 32C. I swear that is what it ran on my stock cooler also or at least pretty close. My case is a HAF 912 with a 200mm side fan installed.

I pulled it yet again today and found I put way to much TIM on as it was slightly oozed out the edges(have pics need to convert them.). I used the line method this time instead of the smear type with my AS5. I put a very thin line right down the center just like in the pics being very careful not to use to much this time.

Well this made absolutely no difference and it may even be running a degree or so hotter now. Room ambient temps are around 70F.

Running Intel burn test on high my temps were 58C per hardware monitor. Are these Temps good?

Some pics.
What the CPU looked like when I pulled the sink


What the cooler base looked like.


All clean.

IMO that may be a little heavy, but nothing that is going to kill anything. Temps sound a little high for stock idle (although are you allowing it to downclock, etc?).

Load temp sounds good too.

Yeh a little too much top and bottom, but really its not bad and I could live with that.

58c is ok for intel burn test at default clocks, means you have a good 22-25c to play with in Intel burn test for overclocking, which is a lot really.

Running IBT on high right now and getting 49,49,48,42 and a package temp of 50. It seems to stay around there for the most part HWM shows highest temps per core are 56,59,58,52 with highest core of 60. Maybe its running a little cooler than I thought.

I let the cpu down clock at idle.

The V8 isn't actually that great of an Air Cooler. It's size and design would make you think otherwise. Use to use it. But a lot of people complain about it.

Those are great tempratures. Idle Intel tempratures are in the range of 65C.

That is a lot of thermal paste. Using a bit less should shave off a few degrees. I just use the pea sized dot.

The self-contained ones are a pretty nice compromise. I started w/ a Corsair H50, and now use an H100 in my main rig. No more worries about the weight associated w/ the tower coolers I'd always used up until now, and are competitive performance-wise w/ top air coolers.

I have to ask, how much of a difference did going from an H50 to an H100 make?

I cant speak for Lupine, but going from a H70 to H100 myself made a fair difference, was almost 8-10c under load with my old hex core chip iirc.

Did you ever do push pull with the H100? Was that just with the stock fans?

Yeh I've been using a push pull config with the H100 since installation, I havnet actually used it with just the 2 stock fans.

LoL though, when my first H100 kicked the bucket, I put the H70 fans in the H100 box lol (cheeky) so when I got my replacement I have 4 identical H100 fans (higher speed variable fans lol)

I actually sold the H70 online with a single 2000rpm coolermaster 120mm fan lol, and the dude didnt care, I told him before hand I wanted to keep the fans.

I feel like pulling my Zerotherm "Nirvana" cooler out of my old PC to see if it would cool better than this. I swear it would.

Cool video, thanks.

Looks to me like the pea method is best for evenly spread, not too much and no air bubbles..

If I can remember right the V6 does a better job.. I run the V6 on my AMD 955 oc'd to 3.7ghz and it idles at 31c and up to low 40's load.

Sorry, been offline for a bit and wasn't able to respond until now.

I can't give a proper comparison, because the thermal paste application on my H50 was messed up - knew something was up but didn't know about the severe gap until I pulled the H50 to install the H100. Initial thoughts.

Pros: Pump unit is more polished, and like the ability to adjust fan speeds via the pump dial.

Negs: Pump noise is audible, vs. the completely silent H50 unit. Could be a defect specific this one unit, but haven't contacted Corsair yet to diagnose further.

Pump is supposed to be silent. Either RMA, or try to work the air out of the pump and get it into one of the tanks of the radiator.

Yeah, my H60 wasn't any louder than my H50. I've been seeing a lot of people on the forums with these corsair coolers recently. If I'm not mistaken there were a couple of people on Rage who had to do an RMA with new corsair coolers recently too.

I had a faulty H100 and the pump was audible, on my replacement the pump is silent. Other possibility is you have air trapped in the pump.. you can move your PC around on its side etc to try and free the air.

Thanks a lot for that idea, have a friend with a similar problem and he might be using the H100 but I'll double check. Thanks anyway though

I use to evenly paste it across the top myself. So I know the thickness and that is evenly spread. Usually use a gift card or something. Interested to try the pea method and see if temps drop more.

I used to do that as well. But this video shows its really not necessary. As the heatsink presses down it seems to spread pretty nicely.

Yeah, thats what I used to do as well. I don't actually find the pea method to perform any better but it is the hell of a lot easier. I still break out a credit card to spread thermal paste on a massive gpu heatspreader.

The compound doesn't have to cover the whole heat spreader. Just the areas above a CPU/GPU die.
