ASUS P6T SE, Vengeance RAM, Coolers, and OC'ing

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have been all up and down the internet this week looking for a compatible air cooler to replace the cheap aftermarket one I have now, which idles at 50C (80C under load). So I know I'll need a better cooler, even for a mild overclock (which I've never done on a CPU).

I've screwed myself over already by buying the tall Vengeance RAM; three 4gig sticks. mad.gif
450

Picture shows the cooler (3 Heat Pipe Xtreme Gear HP-9310 for i7) and the RAM in the slots furthest to the right. So I've got plenty of room to the left of the CPU, none to the right. And not enough north and probably enough south if I moved the GPU to the lower slot.
So my problem mainly is heatsink clearance above the RAM.

Has anyone run into this issue before and found something that worked for them?

Thanks in advance!

the first thing i suggest is to check the thermal past and see if the heat-sink has any nick or scratches that preventing it from absorbing heat this might save you the money you can also look at the cooler master 212 + link below

The guys at cyberpower put it all together for me so I'm not sure what paste or how well they did it, but they usually do a bang up job.

if you have not installed a heat-sink before their are plenty of videos online that tell you how and what to look for if they put to much or did not cover the cpu enough then it wont cool properly i suggest looking up that info if you have thermal past because its that simple because simple mistakes can happen that can cause that problem i always re due thermal past if i get a pre-built system .if you don't want to mess with it the cooler in my link is good and if you put the fan on the other side i don't see a problem with it fitting with that ram

Yeah I was wondering if adding a pull fan would be a cheap way of improving my heat, how do I know what clips to use it the question. They're rubber.

im don't know how this particular heat-sink attaches fans but as long as their is something for a zip tie to hold onto preferably through a hole works ive done that and as long as it is tight it wont make noise also some heat-sinks have the ability to attach another fan but might require special attachments look up possible mods for this heat-sink

Alright sounds good! I'll look into it.

One more question real quick, are those idle temps normal at all for an i7 920?
I've read about people with stock coolers who have a bit less than those idle temps and they RMA'ed them.
I know people say i7's run hot, but is mine running too hot?

that is why i was suspecting the heat-sink of not being attached correctly because my friend as a overclocked I7 and his temps are in the low 70s not even close to 80 and with his new cooler they can run in the mid 60s you might get better temps with a new fan but not muck if the heat sink is not properly absorbing heat i strongly suggest just resetting the heat-sink its not that hard if you follow instructions and make shur you get a nice even distribution tin layer of thermal paste or if their are alot of big scratches on your heat-sink then this will be less surface area to absorb heat and then you might want to try and rma the heat-sink or look up lapping a heat-sink ether way those temps are to high and i would work on fixing them soon so you don't hurt the cpu
