I need a little guidance - Page 2

post #11 of 16
YEA 99% sure now the TIM was poorly set and temps are crazy cause of it. follow Killakis post. clean it properly and make sure you do the chip too.place a small bead on it most likely a tad bigger then a rice grain and about 1/3rd or less then the chip sizes. the place it and press down on the center and screw it down till its tight but not crazy to the point your torquing it. then check temps again.

I just checked a few youtube links and it is very possible that it's not seated correctly. I will reset this thing tomorrow and post the results.
Thanks for all the help.

I took it apart. What I found was that 2 of the posts that attached to the bracket were tight to the bracket, but the bracket had a little play in it. So it seems that half of the cooler was secure to the cpu but a little loose on the other half. It seems as if I was cooling half of the cpu. I broke a post trying to overtighten it and had to go to home depot to make a new post. It worked, I'm happy. Idle temp is 29-30c at 4.7 and ~70c at 100%. I'm aiming for 5 but I cant find that sweet spot yet. I keep getting blue screen. I'll keep trying. Thanks for all the help!!

Glad we can help figure out the problem. And only tighten it lightly. At most an extra pound of torque can break stuff on the board or coolers. Glad you where able to fix it and find the problem quickly before you burnt the chip.



TJ Max for Ivy Bridge is 105C, however you shouldn’t go above 85-90C load when overclocking

Check this link out it might help ya when OCing it and figuring out temps to ensure your cpu doesn't go POOF!

yeah, once it stops wanting to turn, you dont really want to force it too much

Update.

I got the balls to delid my 3770k. It's far easier to do than the videos show. Keeping the razor flush with the pcb is key. I cleaned out the crap in there and I applied a thin layer of CLU. I had barely just enough to apply between the H100 and cpu afterwards.

Now I am at 4.8 stable, 0 voltage offset, Max cores 65C, 68C, 72C, 72C (24hr)
I previously was at 4.5 with those same temps(24hr). (My previous post stated 4.7 but later I found that I kept peaking in the 90's after 1/2 hr)

I'll keep pushing it to see what I can get.
