-Dust out your computer

-Zip-tie a fan too it. Passive cooling on OCN is a no-no

The flash amplified a little the sensation of dust

I will clean it and try to zip-tie that cooler to it in the morning and get a test in this conditions with a better result i hope.

About the "Thermal interface material" (i googled it) i don't have and i really don't think its a good idea to start removing pieces, like the radiator and do something i have never done before. I have if for more then 3 years now and if it stays with me for a little longer i'd be glad

Thanks again. Have a nice weekend.

Replacing the thermal compound on a piece of hardware isn't hard at all, don't put yourself down and say you won't be able to do it. Over time, thermal compound pretty much dries out. It happened to my 4850 in my backup rig, after replacing the thermal compound and giving it a good clean, the temperatures dropped dramatically.

But yes, definitely clean your computer and your components. Make sure everything is dust free.

I'm still laughing at these replies while I type.

Yeah I bet 10-15C of your high temps are from the 1/4" of dust inside your case. You need to clean it once a month at least. Start here and turn off your computer and do it right now.

If it was April 1st I'd think this was an April fools joke. If you didn't know any better than please forgive us, we just never seen anything like this before.

P.S. What a healthy avatar.

I've simply put the cooler under it and played WoW this morning (same settings like last night) and the results were 61*C at 100% maximum load with most of the time under 60*C; thats 40*C lower than last night.

I'm glad it worked, thanks. I feel good. This is the new GPU Z Sensor Log with cooler txt.

And this is how it looks now


And yes it is staying on the Sata cable but there is no vibration and no extra noise, same levels as before (just for information, the MB's utility program says it runs at a litte >2000 rpm).

Get some compressed air and blast all of that dust out. Or, goto a local garage and see if you can use their air compressers they use to pump tyres and the like and blow it all out.

I'd also clean that fan whilst you are there. Dust is the problem here. Although, it seems you've fixed your issue so I suppose it depends on what you are willing to live with, dust wise. That'd annoy the hell out of me, I blast the dust out of my PC weekly.
