Wow. - Page 3

post #21 of 23
its not TIM ...i reseated the whole thing numerous times (pea size in the middle method)
its not bad airflow either ...2x120 intake and 120+200 outtake
gpu heat also shouldnt be a problem since its mostly idle during cpu tests

it just doesnt perform well .... maybe ill try to install it once in vertical position, but i doubt that would do any better
its also not a very good chip (1.26v needed for 3.6, 1.32 for 3.8) but still ...i expected a lot more from this cooler ...since most of the ppl were saying they got 60°c load temps at higher frequencys

Perhaps you should try half a pea blob of thermal in the middle; not a pea size like usually referred to as (wrong).
