i7 2600K - Possibly Overheating - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Thread Starter 
I'm using slots two and four on my mobo as well so it should fit in alright. It would be silly if all the large coolers on fit on mobos with low profile RAM.

EDIT: I've found a pic on this page of what the Havik 140 looks like installed:

It's barely blocking out the first slot so I reckon it will fit in nicely.

After much consideration, I ordered the Thermalright Silver Arrow. Installing will be interesting but I have an experienced friend to help me. Thanks for all feedback guys, I'll let you know how it goes.

I would get the hyper 212+ with a push/pull config. That is what I have and it works great. 75C for games is way too high. I wouldn't even turn my computer on with a stock cooler on it... Replace your cooler and get good thermal paste and watch a few youtube videos on how to set your cooler on correctly.

I just installed it today and got temps around 70 degrees which was a bit worrying. So I made sure both fans were connected to CPU fan connectors on the mobo and set the CPU fan profile in BIOS to turbo and after a ten minute sensor test in Prime 95, the max temp was only 57 Celsius.

Turns out my RAM is taller than I gave it credit for and the only way the Silver Arrow would fit in was turned 90 degrees so that the fans were pulling air from the top of my case (which is quite fortunate since I have two intake fans up there). The only issue is that the side panel doesn't fit on anymore but at least I'll have better ventilation, right?

Thanks to everyone for all your help!

Glad you got your temps down!

Not sure if having the side panel off would be better or worse but as long as all of your temps are ok it shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure to dust it out often because it will get dusty much faster .

Huh, just discovered that the fans at the top of my case are exhaust, not intake. Hopefully the Silver Arrow won't have to compete with them for air.

EDIT: Would it be better to position the fans so that they are pushing air out the top instead of pulling air from the top of the case?

You could always change the fans around on the cooler so that they are exhausting to the top. Might get a little warmer though pulling the heat off of your GPU. Another possibility, you might be able to just raise the fans a little so they clear your ram and point it front to back. Or change your top case fans to intake and keep the cooler the way it is now. So many options lol.

I don't think there's a way to raise the fans or reverse the exhaust fans on the case. Plus, I don't think too much heat would come off the backside of the GPU, would it? One of my enthusiast friends recommended that I just reverse the positions of the Silver Arrow's fans.

Mine gets pretty warm but then again it is a ref. model. If you have a front case fan blowing air between the two though it shouldn't be a problem.

I have three

I'll swap them out, test it now and let you know how it goes.
