I cant get my cpu heatsink on well....

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I messed up man... : (

I have the i5 2500k and the H70

Was running Prime 95 Blend at 4.5mhz 1.35v max it would go in 77c

Then bought some Arctic 5 and arcticlean.

I took off the Thermal paste that the h70 came with.

Removed the stock heatsink paste and cpu paste with the arcticlean and a microfiber cloth.

Then applied the arctic 5 like it said on the site to put it in a line about 1mm going down to the triangle.

Put everything back together ran the same test with same volts

Was going up to 83c...................Stopped the test took that thermal paste off and now applied it pea size in the middle.

Put it back together ran the same test came to 85c.........***!!!

The part when you put on the h70 cold plate and twist it in. I hate doing that I loosened retention ring and I still have to press very hard to twist it on to make it under the grooves I also have the hold it down at the top so it wont move when screwing it in......

Also when looking at the heatsink copper plate thing there are some little scratches around the outer part cause I had to keep re-adjusting the heat sink cause its freaking lame to put on.

I dont know what to do now to get it low temps. I still have some arctic 5 and clean

Heres how i mounted mine(h50) I used a razor blade and spread the AS5 over the copper part until it was very thin. The cooler mount part that goes on the back of the mobo i taped to the mobo so it would not fall off or out of the 4 holes. Then i left the mounting ring on the pump and carefully lined it up and tightened one screw a little at a time until all 4 were screwed in so the pressure would be even over all four corners. After it was tight i took the tape off. I have had mine up to 4.8ghz and temps never got over 62C.

I always use my finger to spread the TIM over the whole IHS. This way you cannot fail. I've done this for years. Never had a problem.

Also the AS5 is thicker VS many other brands, so I recommend using something to spread it with. As I've said, I just use my finger.

I don't know how I can put the screws in while holding down the coldplate with the mounting ring around it. Cause you have a bigger coldplate cover which gives you have a lot to hold onto I don't cause h70's is smaller

You removed the shin-etsu and put as5 on? Moving on, you put the screws in just where they will catch. Then you use one hand to lift the lock plate, then one you put the pump in and turn it. And make sure the lock is locked on the pump. Then crisscross tighten the screws.

Just use painter's tap to hold the backplate down, tighten the screws to the point where the carriage has enough movement to twist the cooler in place and then take one hand and place it on one nut on the backplate panel at a time. Make sure the screws are tight. After you have it all tightened up take the painters tape off the back of the board.

AS5 takes time to settle in.after many times of hot and cold circle. u wont get good results with AS5. just get shin-etsu again if u want better results.other main thing is your
cpu and HS are properly even if not then u will always get bad results even witlh good TIM.

The reason I removed the shin-etsu is I kept messing up putting on the heatsink when I first got it and so it was all smudge.

Now that I know how to put it on I have some AS5 on it and its running at
