amd phenom x6 1055T extremely high temperature - Page 4

Thread Starter 
The logo on the fan is not the same, but the rest look like link nr 2. It says on the back of the pack it came with that its 57 CFM. Hmm, yeah, I have the, uhm, the SCHOOl have the 74 CFM cooler too. Its a little smaller and has lower RPM, but it can go both ways.

I will just buy two 3 Pin Motherboard Fan Splitter Adapter Cable Lead 16cm then?

Edit: I just 2 anyway, never seen anything so cheap before. In Norway we can buy ONE for 3 times the price of those two in total (WITH shipment) I bought from ebay

As long as you have some decent fans and setup up for the correct airflow then it'll allow your new cooler to suck cool air in.

The Storm Scout is a good case so airflow wise you should be fine.

Front fan is designed for the HDD but that'll be brought it across your CPU and out to the top. The side fans will cool both your GPU and CPU and rise to the top also. You basically want cool air to flow over your CPU.

The EVO is a good mid ranged cooler, it may not be the best at cooling but paired up with good paste and decent fans it should hold out at decent overclocks.

I just ran a stress test on my CPU again, and it reached 63 degrees very fast. This was done with the new fan I installed which is intake. I have 2 for exhaust and 2 for intake now. What's wrong? Is the CPU cooler full of dust already?

Using the EVO? You sure you installed it properly?

Pea size amount of the thermal paste with the EVOs fan facing towards the back?

Also, make sure your case fans are installed properly, the side the sticker is on (with the ampage and company name) is the direction the air flows.

The ugly looking side should be visible for an exhaust fan.

The cooler won't be dusty already, you probably have your setup wrong somewhere.

No, it is still my old cooler, but Ive installed a side fan. Ive tested the air flow, and it is on intake

Buy a cooler, get some MX-2 thermal compound, buy some quality fans pushing high CFM get a nice flow going and you'll be good to go.

Oh right, yeah it won't matter much for the stock cooler, it isn't good for that so it can't draw the air in that well from your side fan. It's a low quality fan (think its a 92mm one) and the heatsink isn't big enough to dissipate heat.

Also depending on where you live and your climate will affect temperatures, and the stock will not cope well.

Aftermarket cooler do with fans because they're designed with higher CFM fans (such as the sickleflow we mentioned) so it'll bring that cool air in much quicker. Also that side fan would help with a tower cooler because it has more fins, meaning the air from the side fan will be pulled up by your top fans through the middle of it cooling it well.

But why the sudden increase in temperature? The extra fan I just installed has 74 cfm, and it the fan that seem to be doing the most, still the temperature is getting about as high as it did before I took out the dust and applied new termal paste. The lower temperatures only lasted 1 day frown.gif


The evo + extra fan is ordered and will arrive around 10. december.

I live in Norway, and it's like 0-5C outside, but its quite hot the room I'm sitting as there's a lot of computers on

The stock cooler is actually designed to bounce the warm air back up. So effectively you're stopping airflow. You have the stock cooler pushing air back on itself which would normally exit out of your side vent and top, and on the other hand you have your side fan pushing this air back in. So its stuck.

With a new cooler this problem would be gone.

For now you can install the side fan on the lower side vent so that the air is directing at the GPU area. This should give some room.


ALSO what thermal paste? Generic and most thermal paste have a set in time, because you reapplied it temperatures WILL be higher because the paste hasn't settled. That's why I like the MX-2, it sets in instantly giving instant results.

You may have to wait a couple of days for the heat to settle the thermal paste until you see the temperatures lower. Unfortunately this is how a lot of thermal paste works, including that CoolerMaster paste.

So when your Hyper EVO arrives, apply the paste as you would, pea sized, twist the heatsink slightly to push out any air and then secure it. Run your computer as you usually would and after a couple of days you'll see the temperature decrease.

In other words, the paste doesn't work to its best until it gets comfy in its new home.

Hmm, but the problem is, that the day I applied the paste(2 days ago), artic something, and removed the dust I got a lot lower temperatures. So it's not that it need more time to settle, its like it's moved out already. It only worked for one day or two. Today its almost back to old temperatures, but it might as you say be beacause the side fan push the warm air back in.
