Help! Bad Temps on i7 with new TIM - Page 2

post #11 of 15

An ok change but its still not enough of the change from the stock stuff I'm still running 7-10C higher than I did before.

Oh yeah and first post was underestimated it was around 15-20C higher.

EDIT: I just ran a stress test for 5 sec of OC Scanner and it instantly shot up to 83C

It shows you how right here. I always do it my way and then after i seat the heat sink. Then i remove it and see if it covered well or went too far. and then use more or less the next time. As each heat sink will require a different method most of the time. since each product uses a different mounting system.

For what it's worth, here is what the manufacturer recommends for arctic silver 5. For an i7, they recommend the vertical line method just on the cpu case (not the heatsink as well), shown on page 5 of this guide. Also keep in mind it has a 200 hour break in period. Honestly, I'm not trying to disagree with other posts here, just throwing that out there as a pretty much tried and true method.

Well even then at first I never knew about the break in time it needed but now my CPU is at 48C and my GPU is at 69C in OC scanner These are at full load too!
