Is my NH-D14 Faulty? [nearly resolved] - Page 11

Here is what Noctua said about the base of the heatsink.
Quote:
As far as I can tell from looking at the pictures your heatsink it looks normal. You can always see a small gap because of the heatpipe bends, but this is not a problem as the pipes are soldered to the base. Please check your CPU temperatures at full load when using a tool like "prime95" we will then confirm if your results are alright.
It wont hurt to send my results from another Prime test, so i may as well.

What do you recommend i do to for the test? I was thinking 1h Prime95 small FFTs, and record temps every second with RealTemp 3.67. And of course measure the ambient before and after.

What should the OC be? Im thinking 4.8-4.9GHz, manual voltage, and Extreme LLC to make the voltage more consistent. Everything else will be left on the ASUS optimized defaults(mostly auto).

That looks like a good test.

It took them a bit longer to respond, but anyways this is what Noctua said:

I've dispatched you the 3rd fan kit and some screws. Please expect a shipping time of about of about 5-10 working days.

Unfortunately I can't open your overclock.net link as I don't have an account there. However a core temperature of 74degrees doesn't look that bad to me for an i7-2600k running at 4,8ghz with 1,42Vcore, as this is quite a high voltage for that CPU.

Should i bother sending them a screenshot of my OCN system? That is the link they were referring too. At least i got what i asked for

And this is what i sent to them, in case you need it for reference:

Thank you for your response. Here is what I have done for the testing. I ran a one hour Prime95 Small FFTs stress test to show you the results. The overclock I used for the test was 4.8GHz at 1.42V. Everything was left on auto except for LLC which was set to Extreme(100%). The ambient temperature was 22*C. During the stress test, the Vcore averaged 1.42V. The average core temperature during the test was 74*C. I attached the data in case you would like to take a look at it. The setup I used is linked here. Note that my case fans were set to low(700rpm), and you can see how it performs here.
