Cooler Master Hyper TX 3 installation

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So i got today my Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo, the installation wasnt so hard, for the thermal paste i used the small dot on the cpu method and put the cooler just over it so the cooler spreads the thermal paste. After the installation i runed prime95 for 20minutes and the max temperature was 62 Celsius, the idle cpu temperature is 45 C, my core btw is the Intel Q9550 quad core not overclocked at 2,83Ghz. So my question is are these temperatures normal or did i put the thermale paste wrong because i saw in the forums ppl are putting the thermal paste differently and got much better results like max 50 C on heavy load.

With my 212+ I applied the thermal paste between each of the heat pipes (on the aluminum heat sink), then pushed and moved it around on top of the CPU before screwing it down.

I think the general consensus is that's the best way to do it with direct contact heat pipes.

i thinking of trying to just put a bit on the cpu then spread it with a credit card maybe this will improve the cooling since it will spread more evenly

So i tried the thin layer on the cpu, i spread it with a credit card and my finger. I run prime95 for 30min and the max temp was 59 C. After that i saw more articles about how to spread thermal paste and saw that for my cooler with direct heat pipes the best method is 2 lines between the pipes so i reapplied everything again with that method and run prime95 again for 30min with the same results max temp was 59 C.
So i wasnt really able to improve my temps alot do anyone have suggestions how to make my cpu colder, maybe with more Fans on the case or keep the side open so more air comes in? btw im using a cheap normal case without any special features or fans.

More fans never hurt. Have a fan or fans at the front of the case in-taking air, and fans at the rear (and top if you can) of the case exhausting air. Also, I recommend keeping the side panel on so the air circulates better in the case. I've found that having the side panel off in any of my cases slightly raised temperatures; unless I had a giant fan aiming right at the side of the computer.

According to the Intel Site, 71.4C is
max for that chip. Perhaps Intel fanboys could verify that.

I would suggest running the temp test with and without the side panel on. If you see your temps drop with the panel off then I would improve air comming into/out/of the case.

I have found that the TX3 responds well to shrouds and push/pull fan setups. .Here is my setup.http://cdn.overclock.net/5/59/59b0bad5_DSCN0831.jpeg Both your temps and fan speed will come down.


Hope this helps and good luck!
