I would assume that will void the warranty. Is there other stuff I should put in the heatsink or only thermal paste?

I do have an internal 80mm 30-35CFM fan mounted to the back side of the optical drive bays blowing across the ram and NB HS which helps a bit for cooling. But this is because of the lack of a CPU air cooler.

Some of the early boards did come through with loose screws or wrong size stand offs for the NB HS which yes you can repair without voiding the warranty. Click on the link in my sig and on the OP, the 3rd actual post explains how to do this. As far as I've heard the last 5-6 months of new mobo's haven't had the issue and the issue only comes up with mobo's that are older, or that have been sitting on a shelf for a while.

For monitoring temps and voltage Asus PC Probe II (available on the asus site) is the monitor of choice with a CHIV. Use it to gauge all other monitoring utilities.

You should consider joining us in the Asus Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme Club and adding your name and rig to the "Members Lists" where you'll see what others have for settings (just for a reference) and under those there are several helpful links. Down on the same page is where you'll find the post mentioned above.

Alrighty after 3 hours of scraping, adding and etc. I managed to figure it out! Removed the heat sink and removed its paraffin wax and applied thermal compound, 10 degrees difference!

Before

After

So I knew there was something fishy about my NB.

Mad that The Thermaltake frio would seat over my Dominator Gts. And Made me run to Microcenter to buy a H60 to try it out since it was 50 bucks with my friend employee Discount. Mad because temps suck.



My DDR2 4gb 1066 Dominator came in the Mail today. Addition to my other 4gb 1066 Dominator with the old Airflow fan... This is my Guest computer. Needs another 600T SE... Cable is Ugly...

Should I run 2 Coolermaster Sickleflow 2000RPM Black and Red top exhaust and Red Cathodes along the Bottom? I need Opinions.






Thats temps when I just started the computer up within 15minutes (AT IDLE browsing Overclock.net) and Snapped some pictures. Kinda disappointed from the Temps with my other boards and 965BE and 555BE.... Especially with the H60 Push and Pull Setup...


This is Overclocked to 3.7ghz with Turbo on Auto. Dont know if its going to turbo any higher or what. I kinda dont get it... All I did was raise the FSB and Multiplier. Didnt mess with Voltage... Ran a OCCT LIN Test for 2 hours last night CPU temp was at 69C and Cpu Core Temps never rose above 57c... This is overclocked...

H60?
Motherboard NB and SB Heat????

People with Asus Crosshair Formula IV. Are you able to touch your NB and SB Heatsinks without saying "OUCH thats HOT" Because Mine, I cant even leave my finger on there for more than 5 seconds without it starting to Burn...


Please any Input would be greatly appreciated... I dont want to RMA my Board. If you have any Idea's please let me know. I just bought this board on March 13th. I think its the New batch with the Fixed NB and SB standoffs on the Heatsink being Uneven. All you CHF4's 1090T owners please Chime in thanks.

tsxboy, maybe your board had been sitting on the shelf wherever you bought it from for awhile now and it has the heat sink issue. Try re-seating as discussed in this thread and you should get your NB temps down.

As far as your CPU temps at 69C, its not good for your processor at that temp. I ran 15 min of Prime95 to check my NB temps to help the OP and saw that my CPU temps were getting up to 67C. The ambient in my house is much higher in the day during the summer, in the winter when I did my OC I was at around 57C on full load. I'm not too worried about it because I usually keep ASUS Probe or HWMonitor open to keep an eye on temps. Anything I do other than stress testing keeps it under 55C for me which is safe for the 1090T. This would include gaming, internet browsing, torrenting, video playback to my TV, audio and video encoding, etc. No folding.

@ OP I'm glad to see you got your problem worked out. The Crosshair IV is a fantastic board and I'm sure you're going to love it!
