I just don't understand how a good cooler like yours give out high temps.

I just don't understand how a good cooler like yours give out high temps.

My cooler block is not round, but square. I had to reseat the heat sink twice. I don't think I did it correctly the first time. The second time I spread it evenly on both the heat sink and the cpu with a paper (1" wide). Can a thicker (than what it should be) spread of thermal paste make that much of a difference? The manual says put a rice bean size, but that would not be enough to spread around the surface evenly. I may have it thicker.

Just one fan. Since the fan in the backside of the cpu is pulling air, if I add another fan behind the radiator it will be a pushing the air, correct? Sorry I have never done Push/Pull.

Just make sure your fans are both pointing in one direction lol.

Adjust your QFan settings so your fans run faster, coolermaster stock fans (well the ones that came with the CM690II) are crap at moving air so your internal temperature is probably a fair bit higher than ambient.

You do not need to spread the thermal paste on both the CPU and the heat sink, it will raise your temperatures slightly doing so. The best method is to put a rice size grain in the center of the CPU and put the heat sink on. Try to keep the heat sink as level as you can while tightening it down as to make sure no air bubbles creep in. The pressure from screwing the block onto the mounting bracket will be more than enough to spread the thermal paste over the IHS evenly. As for the coverage of the CPU, you don't need to cover the entire IHS, just most of it.

The purpose of only putting a small bit of thermal paste is because you only need to fill in the microscopic holes in the CPU/heat sink. In a perfect would we would just attach the heat sink directly to the CPU without any thermal paste as each surface would be perfectly flat making 100% contact between the two. Sadly we do not live in a perfect world so we need to use thermal paste to fill in the small holes.

^yes. very nice explanation. deserves some rewards.
as with thermal paste, less is better. the thinner the layer is while covering the whole heat spreader the better your temp

4. Tightened it properly
5. Reversed the fan direction behind the radiator to in-take. It was in exhaust mode before
6. Reverded the fan direction of the bottom chasis fan.

Now I am testing OC at 4.3 GHz at 1.264v VCore.
At 4.5GHz, vcore 1.33v, I am getting the CPU to 71C-72C and the DRAM temparature goes up to 62C-64C. It gives a warning if it goes higher than 60C. Is this normal? This happens when I run Prime95 or even do HD video rendering for a long time (100% CPU usuage).

Is the pump working properly? I don't think it should get that high. And yes a small grain of rice size is good. I used to spread with a plastic spreader but the rice grain worked out better for me.

How do I verify if the pump is working properly? I see that the rpm is pretty high in the monitoring tools. Also can you please explain what you meant by "the rice grain worked out better"? Do you mean you put a very small size (only one) rice grain size thermal paste? Did you not spread it?

Thanks so much.

Look in AI Suite were you have the pump plugged in, it should read around 1400 rpm. As for the grain of rice method, use a small amount of TIM on the cpu only. Some recommend a little more than that, like a pea size amount.
