Hey TH! I recently built a desktop and I have been adding goodies to it as money permits (SLI, dual monitors, and SSD's all with time) and while I have a decent cooler master I have recently purchased a Corsair H60. I have been idling at 36-40 C at 4.0Ghz with my I7 3770k. This is too warm for comfort and I want to overclock to 4.5 or 4.7, which I know is not uncommon.
I am in the process of testing and optimizing all my case fan directions, so I know with some adjustments I can bring down temps a bit more.
Anyways, I wanted to know A) What maintenance is recommended for my H60? I haven't heard of these failing in the hands of experienced techs, only newbies, and I don't want to leak all over my new system. B) is there any other parts like reinforcements for cable mountings, etc. which can further reduce leak chance and/or prevent leaks from damaging the rest of my system.
I have been a long time lurker on this forum and I know it has great advice and is an excellent knowledge base. Your experience and wisdom is much appreciated.
I thought so, thank you. One more thing-- I already have a LGA1155 slot mounting bracket on my mobo which was a pain for me (especially in my huge thermaltake level 10, trying to reach around to hold it on and screw it in) so can I just keep on my old mounting bracket? The pictures of the mounting bracket make it look virtually identical.
