Nope, you are in the correct thread, as it is just a collection of people oc'ing the 3820. There are a bunch of Thermal Paste tutorials on YouTube, so you can actually SEE what is going on instead of pictures. It helped me out big time. (Got it down to a science now
). The thing I'm not
sure of is mixing the TIM. I would just stick with one kind at a time. I use about a pea size dab right in the middle of the die and let the cooler base smash it out. Some people with lift it up to look, but i just let it be. Your temps should
be around 65 or so at full tilt. (I am guessing here, as I have no experience with the H70).
This is my cooler in a basement with ambients ~20c .....The hottest core hit 63.
Intel Burn Test (referred to as IBT) is another free program that hits hard. My temps were a bit warmer with it, but not bad at all. I post a pic of this ^^^^^ up there aways.
I think your H70 should be comparable, if not a bit better, depending on your ambient temp. Hope this helps shed some light for ya. Edited by Ramsey77 - 4/17/12 at 7:43pm
