Corsair H60 tips

I was on the fence about upgrading from my H60 push/pull to reach 4.5Ghz without going over 75c. Well I officially am Oced to 4.5Ghz with a H60 in push/pull!

I used a generic 120mm fan with 79.x cfm as my second fan. This however wasn't working alone. So I cleaned off the cpu and H60 plate and applied artic silver 5. I also had some thin rubber sheets laying around so I used a 120mm fan to make a template of it on the rubber sheet. I made two gaskets that made it so the air couldn't leak from between the rad and fans. These two steps worked for me.

After 30m of prime95-64bit version my temps on realtemp 3.70 are 70c/73c/72c/66c. I decided 30m was enough as I kept seeing the temp peak at 73c and then drop to 71c. It should also be noted my house is kept at 73f with 50% humidity.

My case has two 120mm 79.x cfm fans intake in front, two exhaust with rad, and 140mm intake on top (unknown cfm)

all of that was easily available in the watercooling sticky and its closed loop cooling section :)
