Remember that the compound is just there to fill in the microscopic gaps in the surface of the heatspreader and heatsink... the amount you actually need for the best performance is very small, and you don't need to cover the entire heatspreader, just the area above the cores themselves.

Temps in the low 30s idle, low 60s load at 1.45V/4.8GHz. Using Shin-Etsu paste but Arctic Silver 5 is good as well.

Good post. The cross method is going to be my new favorite smile.gif

Curious one last time here.. Could a couple of you do a test and contribute your times? My BIOS takes a very long time, upwards of 30 seconds to actually see windows start to load. (Boot the HDD). Is anyone else seeing this? Am I correct in thinking the BIOS section of a reboot should be 5-10 seconds, not 30?

I have RAID enabled, but it still only takes maybe 15 seconds to get to the Windows loading screen.

Are you implying I'm not allowed to ask the experience of other users here? I'm doing both.

Where do you read the temperature?

Mine is also 40-42 with Real Temp now that I have enabled the automatic 4.6GHz OC.

For CPU cooling, I'm using Noctura NH-U9B SE2 with Low-Noise Adaptor

Same cooler but without adaptor and I cannot hear it. BIOS was reporting 1900rpm while Noctua spec says it should be 1600rpm. confused.gif
Quote:
Thermal Compound is XIGMATEK PTI-G4512, which came free with the Noctura from the egg.

This cooler comes with NT-1 from Noctua. Do you mean you got an extra free item when buying this cooler?

I got 1 free item with the cooler, which is the XIGMATEK PTI-G4512. Which thermal compound should I use? The one that came with Noctua HSF or the Xigmatek?

Thanks for the replies guys. You guys are the best. I feel like a family here! I will reset HSF and report back.

I did some preliminary overclocking last night. Hit 4.6GHz at stock voltage with absolutely no effort. I just changed a few BIOS settings and rebooted.

I will certainly try for more soon!
