1. The "tinting" you guys mentioned, could I do that with a double folded tissue?(don't have any clean cloth or coffee filter atm).
2.Mounting this onto a LGA1155 socket(IB CPU), should I do the mounting after bolting the mobo into the case or do it outside of the case with the mobo laying on top of its box?

Paper towel would be better as tissue is not lint free.

You can mount before or after whichever is easier.... both for mounting cooler and installing motherboard.

I have always used paper towels. My fancy coffee maker doesn't use filters tongue.gif

Just tinted and the results are as follows:

Before:


After:


The ambients dropped considerably while I had the computer taken apart, but I kept track. Everything is in c.

Hottest core temps before (32c ambient):

Core 0 = 69
Core 1 = 72
Core 2 = 75
Core 3 = 73
Package = 80

Hottest core temps after (30c ambient):

Core 0 = 65
Core 1 = 68
Core 2 = 70
Core 3 = 68
Package = 75

Subtract ambient temp before:

Core 0 = 37
Core 1 = 40
Core 2 = 43
Core 3 = 41
Package = 48

Subtract ambient temp after:

Core 0 = 35
Core 1 = 38
Core 2 = 40
Core 3 = 38
Package = 45

Drop:

Core 0 = -2
Core 1 = -2
Core 2 = -3
Core 3 = -3
Package = -3

So I guess it did help, even though my ambients messed with the test a bit. The processor is at 4.4ghz and according to hwmonitor the most amount of voltage that went to it was 1.21, though most of the times I looked at it it was hovering around 1.18

I think its probably worth a try if you have some extra tim laying around. Knowing this, I will continue to tint the processor and heatsink when ever I put one on thumb.gif

Same here but almost out. When next I pull cooler I will use what is on it to tint. Seems to make sense as it's already there so wipe off instead of super-clean, spread on and wipe off. wink.gif

yea I actually didn't do a super clean, I just wiped the excess off and pressed some new stuff in. It actually does waste a bit of paste doing this but it does make sense to do. An old credit card also helped me spread it and press it into the surfaces.

When I'm seating a new cooler... especially if on a new CPU I usually pull it off to make sure I got a good seat. Perfect time to rub in TIM for a good tint.. Never did a real rub in before but have just wiped off and put new dob on. wink.gif

I have a question, now for the white Phantek is the cooler silver or is it white? I know the fans are white but I want to know the cooler color.
