Dell XPS runs insanely hot - Page 3

post #21 of 47
Thread Starter 
What's the difference between IC Diamond 7 and IC Diamond 24? And I wouldn't mind spending a few dollars to keep my PC 5 degrees cooler.

No clue, never used either

I wouldn't expect a 5c difference between any of the top pastes, maybe 1-2c at the most.

Another alternitive is MX-4, which is up there with IC Diamond.

There is one other one, but i cant remember it right now. It is REALLY expensive, but it blows everything else out of the water....

The MX-4 has a higher W/mk rating than IC Diamond does. Does that have any relevance to anything or will they both perform about the same?

Indigo Xtreme?

Would that work with mobile chips though? Are they the same size as their desktop counterparts?

yep, that's the one.

moblie chips don't have IHS on them, so you only need to cover the die, which is smaller.

I have no idea how idigo works, so that is something someone else will have to answer

I also have the 502 XPS with the 525m currently overclocked and while my unit never got abnormally high temps while gaming I did download the service manual and reapplied with some leftover Shin Etsu I had laying around. I saw a 3-5 degree difference in temps but the stock paste wasn't applied as bad as some systems I've seen so it may just be your system didn't have a good application. While you have your system open you could also remove the screen for the fans to prevent the airflow restriction but may not be a good idea if you live in a dusty environment. Doing a reapply does not void your Dell warranty unless you cause damage in the process so it may be worth a shot to improve your situation just be careful doing so.

Dell uses "wax" pads so the application on the dell machines will be exactly the same each system
all the pads have the same thinkness and roughly the same consistency (assuming no defects in the chasis to cause it to not be on tight enough, which doesnt really happen)... the paste itself is part of the issue

I'm not sure how it works either. I just know enough about it to be terrified of it's reflow process, otherwise I'd pick it up. Lol.

Letting the CPU get to abnormal temps to flow the TIM isn't something I'd like to do. But I bet it works.

Also I doubt this will work for mobile since I don't think you can cut it. IDK.
