post #12 of 25
Im currently running a 2700k at 4.6ghz with 1.3v it was stable at 4.9ghz @ 1.375 but backed it down as during prime it hit 90 degrees.

Now under prime it sometimes sees 80 degrees! i am using arctic silver tc with a h100 corsair water cooling kit.. any ideas?

i didnt use a small dab of paste then put the cooler on but spread it evenly using a card.

cheers

mike

You'll want to look at some of the above posts for how to apply TIM (thermal interface material, for those just lurking). The credit card spread method is outdated now. It is much more efficient to allow the heatsink to squish the compound on its own. A little twist before locking it down is recommended too.

Don't try to use the credit card spread. It was proven to be the worst due to the most bubbles produced. A grain of rice or line a single line approach is the most effective as per my experience.

Unless you're running a direct heatpipe design with spacing between the pipes (ala Cooler Master Hyper 212 [exluding Evo]). Then you'll want to pre-spread it on the heatsink base to get some in the nooks and crannies, and then TWO lines on the CPU for full coverage after the squish.

your temps seem ok, aslong as it doesn't reach 60-70'c its OK, maybe apply your thermal paste again

I would offer that at full load 60-65 is OK, 70C is even OK for short term benching and/or testing the boundaries of an OC/cooling combo. At 65 you're still 35C away from max temp spec'd by Intel. I think, for many, the goal is to reach max OC while keeping the temps under 60C. But that's just an objective, not a rule.

And since gaming (his primary use) won't push the CPU that hard he'll never see those max temps in normal use anyway.

i might have a butchers at reapplying the paste tomorrow then cheers peeps
