    if your brave ... pull the heatsink and reapply tim .. with a 40mm fan i now keep mine at 41deg c they should have sorted this out better cooler of fan .. or even a watercool attachment

    Yes, not a good situation to be in. You'll see my current temporary solution below, but unless a properly interfaced fan is crafted to mate with the heatsink, the implementation will always look cheesy.

    In the picture, you'll also notice a new Corsair H00i setup in push-pull configuration.

    I'd like to begin by writing that I know the age of this thread.

    @Gr8sho: I'm certain that, by now, you have come up with a solution to this issue. However, since I've been looking into a similar issue myself lately, and since I will soon be watercooling my CPU on my C5F-Z, I have been considering EK's watercooling solution for our boards.

    No worries about a necro thread, if you have something to add, and you do. Or if you have a question you ask it mate. We are not precious on this forum. We just want to help folks.

    I tend not to worry to much about the temps of the NB to be honest. I was pushing my CHVz very very hard in December and the NB was boiling hot and did not blink or give me any problems. It was close to 100'C - true I was pushing over 7GHz and the NB frequency was insanely high.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    Just for a benchmark I run totally stock system (no OCing) and my NB temp right now is running at 80.6 F; summer temps puts that a bit higher at 95 F.

    This has been my experience as well. HiViz pointed out to me that when you use
    the h100i you no longer have the cpu fan blowing on the NB .. I added a fan and
    she idles now around 45c with the cpu @ 30c.

    Best of Luck. .c.

    So, I suppose it is safe to say that - given good internal air-flow, and high rate of cabin/ambient air exchange, that it isn't worth it to do more than add an 40-80 mm fan directly on the NB?

    I have a 120 mm case fan pushing ambient air directly into the CPU/NB/RAM space, but the primary flow is front to back, and I've refined it to have very little interior turbulence in that area.

    @HiVizMan - Is that the CPU frequency and NB temperature that you see all of the time (my PC is running ~16 hrs /day), or just periodically?

    @TheNerdBench - More-or-less same question as above to HiViz.

    @Dr. Z,

    Yes, that temp is pretty much is stable at 81 F as my system runs 24x7 for at least a few days at a time (I know; not very green of me). If I load up a game like Call of Duty or Doom then yes the NB temp will rise a bit. I mostly run Office and do a bit of programming of micro controllers so again not much of a "load" on my system.

    You are right on the right track...I personally do NOT think that one can have enough cooling fans installed in a system (as long as you and your friends that you game with can stand the noise generated from mini-tornado that exists within your case). I do have a GT Level 10 which is pretty large case with a bunch of case cooling fans (with good airflow) which is why my NB temps may be a bit on the low side...again I don't OC either. I also believe being an electronics guy that the cooler you can keep the parts the longer and less problems you will have over the long run. Just my two cents

    Yeah - One of Dad's mantras was, "A cool component is a trusty component." I'm going to conduct a few experiments over the next few weeks, and I'll update when I have more information.

    OP no I do not run my system at over 7GHz all day. I was benching for a Pro Cup contest and was just shy of 8GHz actually. My NB was running over 4000MHz at times and was being really pushed hard. I had not extra cooling on the NB and never had an issue.

    Yes it is good sense to have good air flow, but all I am trying to get across is that you do not need to worry. Those temps are pretty normal if you do not have air flow and the closed loop water systems provide no air flow or cooling to the MB or chipset.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.
