Safe temperature and cooling - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
finally i managed to put everything together after applying the paste via pea size method and as soon as i ran prime95 thru real temp sensor test, i got 63c highest, ran it once. is there a breaking period for the TIM? what if it drys up wouldnt that make it hotter?

MX-2 Really does not have a break in period. Arctic Silver 5 used to have like a 200 hour burn in time.

You should be fine.

It takes quite a long time for TIM to dry up if ever. Yes if the TIM did dry out the chip would start to run hotter.

Congratz on the temp drop.

It was worth it wasn't it?

definitely worth it mate, thanks for the help.

one more thing, i currently dont have an intake fan on the front would you say adding one would give a temp drop on the CPU? or would that only reduce the motherboard temp? i saw this

but its a bit expensive for a fan or would i be ok with this instead?

I have two intakes one bottom front for PSU & GPU and one top front just for CPU, not a massive change but when I am gaming pushing the CPU & GPU it does tend to keep overall temps slightly lower over a prolonged period.

so good for the NB/HDD's etc... (did you fit a fan to your NB?)

You should always have a front intake fan. (Unless you're not doing external exhaust).

I would still fit the NB with a fan to keep that cool.

Another fan will definitely help out.

You should go into user cp and edit your Sig rig settings so we always know what to reference.
