Well I'm not sure what I need to do in settings to bring up my rig signature like in your profile. Anyways, sorry for being so dense, here are my specs.

i5 3570k
asrock z77 extreme4
cooler master hyper 212 evo
16gb g. skill ripsaw series x 10-10-10-30

After 21 minutes in prime95 my cpu temp is 89-95-92-91 in 4.0 using same settings as my first post.

About the Prime95 Custom settings...

Am I supposed to follow the ones in the image posted aside from the mentioned "Memory to use in MB?" I'm asking about the values for "Max FFT size(in K)" and "Time to run each FFT size (in minutes)" because currently the values for them are 4096 and 15 respectively.

The 212 should perform better than that. What did you use for TIM?

Poor contact b/n HSF and cpu, try reseating it (change out TIM, too)
post #1125 of 9531
TERRIBLE NEWS!

I did some more research on my HSF. Many people were experiencing a little swivel effect on their HSF. I peaked inside of my case and did notice my HSF tilted just a little to the side. I moved it back in place to center it. It's positioned with the fan pushing right to left. I then removed the fan and tightened the screws just a little more. 2 out of the 4 did need just a little more tightening. On the fourth and last one I over torqued and the screw snapped! mad.gif

I'm now back to stock settings using the stock HSF. *sigh*

I won't be OC'ng until I can buy another bracket set for my hyper 212.

As far as the TIM, I used the one that came with the Cooler Master. Is that good enough?
I applied it evenly on the CPU only. This is what's left over on the HSF.

Yes, I will update the guide to make that more clear.

Change FFT size to 1792 and FFT time to 5min.

Way, way too much TIM. It looks like cream cheese. Too much TIM will interfere with heat sink transfer. While you are waiting for another bracket, I would read up on how to properly apply TIM.

Hey man, could you KINDA roughly explain why you use these settings? Not that I'm smartassing, I am just curious about the background of this. smile.gif

Yep. Too much. The thing is: Most off the heat goes from CPU core straight into the CPU's silver looking heat spreader and through to the cooler. It does not really benefit from the spreader, which is there to SPREAD the heat. And that does not work out THAAAT awesomely. Some hardcore people even remove the spreader and put the cooler right on the CPU cores and get better temps.

Whatevs. What I wanna end up with: TIM does not need to be all over the CPU. Also don't spread it yourself.

http://www.arcticsilver.com/intel_application_method.html#

I find this website to be very helpful. They are actually smart guys... Read through their PDFs. Basically - put a thin line (vertical, horizontal, depents on your CPU) on your CPU and let the cooler do the spreading. That way no air bubbles get created and you save some TIM. I was surprised, VERY surprised when I found out how thin the line can be. I used to put too much TIM on my Q6600 back in the day...

Wish you the best. I hope I didnt talk to much bull**** here. Correct me on anything if I am wrong. Thanks.

Are you using water cooling? My idle temps are around 40 degrees...
