I checked the directions with a piece of paper (it would pull one end of the paper in the right direction).

how about contact pressure when you mounted the D14? how much temp difference are you experiencing?
I don't know if they're spinning at the same RPMS. What do you mean by contact pressure?
Before the orientation, it would idle at 25-30C and on load would be at 35-40C. Now, on partial load it's around 32-37C (idling around 30-32C) and on full load, it heads in the 40+C temps.
EDIT: I'm hearing a faint clicking noise resonating from the cooler. I found a fin that's slightly bent. I bent it back into position and readjusted the fans accordingly. The clicking is intermittent now. I'm thinking of RMA'ng the cooler. What are your thoughts before I do it?Edited by brotaos - 8/29/12 at 8:23pm
