Just seen you have a 1055t, loved that proc when I had it.

Its a great lil cpu does stock at just over 1.1v but wants over 1.4 for 4ghz

Bake it to check.

I had a 4870X2 that slowly lost its overclock until it would artifact and freeze at stock speeds. A bake in the oven fixed it (although it started doing it again after ~3 months).

24/7 for mine was 3.9@1.43-ish but 4ghz was over 1.5v. Needless to say 3.9 was just fine.

I bought these Enzotech heatsinks. This is my 2nd set of Enzotech and I can safely say that they come with the ****tiest adhesive I've ever had to use. Any suggestions on what to use in their place? I have thermal tape but that doesn't stick well either. Perhaps paste?

Anyway, they fit perfectly under the fan and over each vrm. Here are some pics.





Fan clearance
Those fit nice! I hope you find a better solution for adhering them to the VRM's.

You're probably correct that having fans connected to the GPUs may increase the load on the voltage regulation modules (VRM), but I've never tested that theory to know what difference (if any) there may be. It should be noted, though, that I only have one fan connected directly to each GPU -- the Gelid 120mm Slim Blue LED fans. All of my other fans are on different mobo headers and controllers.

The Gelids themselves also draw much less amperage than the stock GPU fans, so the voltage required to power them MAY be less than the power required to power the stock GPU fans. Then again, since they're controlled by PWM, and not voltage, the voltage allocated to the fans may stay constant, regardless of what type of fan is used. (I don't know)

If I have time this weekend, I'll test your theory by connecting them to my fan controller instead. Since I'm still searching for any possible ways to lower the VRM temps, I'll be very interested in the results, as well. My GUESS is that there will be little or no difference given that fan amperage is miniscule compared to the amperage required to power the card itself -- it's that quickly rising GPU amperage that really drives up the VRM temps.

Thanks for the idea and the compliment!
I performed a few tests last night comparing VRM temps while having a fan plugged into the GPU header of the top card while using it to cool both cards VRM's. I used GPU-Z to monitor the current of both cards while testing. I have to say, I didn't find any noticeable differences between the two. paleh0rse14, did you come up with anything with this theory?
post #1258 of 3006
I haven't tested it yet, but your results are pretty much what I expected. The fans draw very little amperage compared to the GPUs themselves. I may still test it on Monday if/when I finally get some time this weekend.

You also made me realize that I REALLY need a much better camera... lol

Not trolling ya wink.gif but just saying biggrin.gif

LMAO! You guys tongue.gif

these photos were taken with an iPhone 5. I couldn't focus the sinks simply because the phone was too close haha!

Thanks! So far they are sticking, but it took a lot of fiddling with. I suspect they'll fall down any time, but for now, I won't fix what isn't broken.

Would anyone not recommend a little paste in place of tape?

Would a gas oven or an electric fan assisted oven be better.
Ive read up on it and its 190c for 10 mins turn oven off n let it cool in the oven or should I take it out n let it cool on the side.

Would you do it with yhe gpu down or facing up.
