Extremely high temps. - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Since it's cpu only loop with this kit it doesn't make much difference which way water flows. If you have topped off pump after it drained down then it's back to being a contact problem between cpu and waterblock. Need to recheck your seating, apply a little more tim and make sure nothing is keeping the waterblock from seating tightly against cpu.

I say you need to tilt the case front and back and side to side. I bet you have air trapped in the rad and lines now. Also tap on the rad to make the air pockets release and move in to the res. Remove the block on the cpu and take a picture of what the thermal paste looks like.

than apply it like i showed you , that is the correct way ..

pea and spread method might of worked on the C2D chips but definatly not the best option for a 2500k!

Alright, guess I'll try to tip back and forth to get rid of air pockets, if any, and reapply TIM the way you specified.
Thanks for the help. I'll get back to this when I see if anything has changed in temps.
What would be the best way to clean off the TIM, though?

I always use some 91% isopropyl alcohol and wipe it down. And then replace the thermal compound. But once you remove the block you can see how you need to reapply it to make it cover correctly.

I personally go with pea, but from my understanding there isn't a "right" way to do it, just don't trap air and there are some more effective ways of doing that.

Gently move the case around as it is capped off and pumping at the same time, then check fluid level. Try it several times. Air could be trapped somewhere.

Properly seating the cooler and applying the TIM dropped my temps 15 degrees. I also had too much TIM before, and temps got really high, about 10 degrees higher than when I wiped it clean and re-applied. It took several tries to get right my first time. I will post the best method I have found to get the lowest temps.

Clean it with isopropyl alcohol above 90% on a coffee filter to avoid any lint. Make sure it is very clean.

-Put new TIM on the cooler and chip
-Wipe it as clean as you can get it with a credit card or similar to fill in any microscopic voids on the chip AND the cooler. There should be no visible TIM left at this point.
-Apply a small amount of TIM to the exact center of the chip. I would use the pea or grain of rice method, it seems to spread the best due to the vertical stacking of the TIM allowing it to spread evenly.
-DO NOT spread it. Allow the pressure of your cooler seating to spread it on it's own.

Don't worry about covering every single millimeter of the chip with TIM, this will probably result in you using too much as I did the first few times. My lowest temps were achieved with TIM covering probably only about 85% of the chip, with the corners being dry.

Good luck.

A bad TIM application won't cause 93ºC temps when just loaded into the BIOS...

Even just a slice of cheese as the TIM between the CPU and water block would yield better temps than he is getting, if everything else is otherwise working correctly.

I agree, something else going on here, sounds like waterblock not making good contact with cpu, either something holding it up, or I hate to harp on it but, plastic protection cover over waterblock cpu contact area not removed. Also make sure to tighten screws down till springs compress firmly, I run mine tight.

Where the hell did you come up with that's the wrong way??

I've done the pea and spread method every single time.. my whole life...

I'm running RES > MCP655 w/ topper > GPU > 120 > CPU > 360... right now my temps are, 30/31/32/33.. and my gpu is at 33... max heat is around 38 on both with overclocks... so don't just say it's the wrong way if it works for others. Not to mention it's effing 80F in this damned room right now...
