I'm hoping I can get everything to like 74-78 instead.
I used the line method with the AS5 but I think maybe I put too much? I have a habit of doing that. If I can shave some C by applying the CLP anyways, and I put the CLP properly, it should yield a good difference.
How should I apply the CLP to the top of the IHS. Dot? Line? Rice? Spread?
EDIT: Yep, 18~ mins prime 80-87-87-83, its the first time that core hit 80. Ambient is extremely high at the moment so it does make sense.
On the die i basically used a single dot of tim, like what would just seep it from being turned right side up, it was barely anything. And then on the under side of the IHS i dabbed whatever was on the end of the tube in a vertical line down the middle of it. just so it makes contact with the die TIM.
On the IHS i used a small grain of rice size vertical line, What i have noticed is if you seat your cooler on the IHS and then have to lift it off for whatever reason, maybe to properly screw it into the mounting bracket cause its off on 1 side, its gonna cause problems, lifting off the tim is gonna create air bubbles.
I have used AS5 once testing my delid temps, and yeah it was pretty crappy results. Mostly cause of the break in period, with my MX-4 i instantly saw a 10 to 12c temp drop.BEFORE Delid Temps H100 + AS5, Tim Mate 2, Cooler Master RTH02 or whatever its called.Prime95 Large FTT

Comfortable room temp in all tests
Now with all that being said, most of my rooms temp rising comes from my SLI GTX 670 setup that has a bios mod, forced voltage increase/throttle removed OC raising the temps. If i added those to my H220 loop my temps would probably drop a bit more.
When my CLU shows up im planning on lapping the top of the IHS. Cause why not? if its concave and the highest points are along the outside of the IHS then the cooler isn't properly resting on the area that has the most heat.
Also I have a feeling i'm gonna have a very hard time getting to 4.8 on this chip without a suicidal voltage. I messed around with it a bit last night to see what i could get it to run at and not have IBT crash or BSOD. I was going into the 1.470+ range.
To me that seems crazy that i need
1.500v Cpu PLL
Ultra High LLC (75%)
And for a 200MHz increase i need
1.500v+? Cpu PLL
Ultra High LLC (75%)
I honestly have no idea what i should keep it under or close to for a 24/7 OC. I'm assuming if i have to go into the 1.5v range for 4.8Ghz i should probably just give up.Edited by EnthusiastG4m3r - 7/6/13 at 11:48am
