3770k replacing of heatspreader TIM, new temps

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Before I replaced the TIM my temps were 72C full load with Prime 95 and the Hyper Evo 212 with 1 push Enermax Magma 120mm fan. Now the new temps using Thermal Fusion 400 (due to it's low viscosity I found it spreads very thinly) the new temps max are 65C! And incredible drop in temps and almost insulting honestly. Anyways thanks everyone these new temps are absolutely normal IMO for a stock 3770k.

Alright ttyl

Oh and I used this as a guide on how to take off the heatspreader. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXs0I5kuoX4

I was extremely careful and used a regular razorblade, but I was fearful the side might scratch the PCB which it didn't. And you must be careful also that you don't get the glue on the underside of the chip when you're cleaning it, I did but knew that using a toothbrush dipped in alcohol can clean safely and so I got it off easily.

So far I've replaced the TIM on my laptop and between this heatspreader and chip, just amazing results.

Oh and Core1 is always higher for me, ALWAYS so that's normal. I have seen a guide where the fellow had similar results with Core1

Some more advice, use a toothpick to clean the heatspreader crevices and you can basically remove ALL glue, very cool!

Yea I was really nervous about it, but the video made me more comfortable to the point I wanted to try it. The beauty of this is you can always change the TIM if you want now too, very cool. What were your temp differences if I may inquire?

You know what I didn't see the button LOL sorry frown.gif

Oh and here's a review someone did http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/277876-29-3770k-removal-results

Basically this guy gets very similar results to mine, I just wonder how anyone gets lower temps than we did I have the Evo 212 =/
