I just had the most EPIC FAIL ever!!!!!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So i dunno if this is in the right section or not because its about my CPU Heatsink Fan
anyways here is my story....
i bought my sig rig back in October and i originally had an ASUS Crosshair V (CHV) 990fx MOBO but after finding it was DOA and newegg being out of stock i bought the UD3 instead. so with that said after i had sent back the CHV i had put some clear scotch tape on my HSF heat pipes so they would get scratched or anything. when i went to buildmy rig with the UD3 i forgot about the tape and put it on. even though i did find i weird that my idle temps were around 45-50c i didnt do anything about it. so today i decide to do some cable management and while i had it taken apart i thought i would replace the thermal paste (maybe thats why the temps are high) and to my surprise the HSF came right off with out a hassle which i thought was weird. so i cleaned off the cpu and then the HSF and i found the tape and thought OMG!!!! thats been on there for almost 5 months no wonder my temps were high.. now that i put it all back together the idle temps are now about 23-25c major difference. anyways i just thought i would share my most embarrassing epic fail of all my computer building days haha
