i7 with Noctua NH-D14 to hot? - Page 2

post #11 of 70
I'm sure many would dislike the way I did mine, but this is how mine is.

I apply enough TIM to allow a rather thin layer to be spread around the entire CPU IHS. So basically I put some TIM in the middle and then use a thin plastic card to spread it around the IHS in a fairly even and thin layer. Then and only then I place the heatsink on it and avoid moving or rotating it as much as possible while seating it.

With this, and using currently Arctic MX-3 (as I ran out of Noctua's TIM as I used it on my laptop as well, and another system twice) I achieve temperatures of up to 72C on the current configuration in my sig, bearing in mind that the CPU speed and voltage is now 4.6GHz with Hyperthreading on at 1.352v~. My previous speed and voltage a while ago was 4.9GHz at 1.45v~ without hyperthreading and that was about 75C under load of Prime95 1792K FFT.

That's my input, hope it helps.

Well the fact is that previously I used 6-7mm dot in the middle and a lot of small "touching lightly" dots everywhere ; now I have put a 5mm dot in the middle. And the load themps are the same!
Actualy, idle temps got higher now I think...

Yeah did you spread the TIM around?
You really only need a thin layer, so put some on heatsink or CPU and then spread it with a card like the guy above said.

EDIT:
Here it shows how much you should put on

im havin the same problem. i applied a thin layer with a credit card to the bottom of the heatsink. and put a small amount on cpu. i think i still have too much, but temps are down.

Nope, I just placed a dot in the middle.
Ok I will do it with spreading.. Be back in 15 mins

Yeah you should only put a layer on 1 surface so its either the heatsink or the cpu not both.

Ok. One dot, really thin spreaded with a glove one the processor.
40 idle 70 load. Getting worse...

As for as it goes the best result was the first one with one large dot in the middle and a lot o small ones all around..

It seems the more you are fiddling around with the d14, the worse your temps get.

Are you confident you put the backplate on correctly and firmly, with the supplied pads?

Did you secure the brackets around the CPU area (where the heatsink attaches to) firmly and correctly?

Yeah, I think I did it right, I checked everything twice..
And it is squeezed to tight rather then to little.

The most plausible reason why you have worse temps using the spread method is because your processor and heatsink need to be entirely flat, preferably lapped otherwise you won't make full contact.

Especially since Intel's IHS's tend to be very uneven.

Since the die in the Sandy Bridge is rectangular, put a thin line of TIM down the center vertically.

Like:


Don't go so close to the edges though, or it will spread over a bit.
*Also remember, for Sandy do it vertical.

Here's a more in depth view as to why it's done this way:
