1.28 is really high for 4ghz. that much extra voltage would explain high temps. I have 4.6 ghz on 1.24 i believe.
Isn't he running an i7 920?

Yes i'm running the 920, I tried cutting back to 1.2v and got BSOD, then went back up to 1.24 and it was ok for a bit and then I got another BSOD while gaming so I amped it up to 1.26v which seems stable now.

There are two problems with these coolers. #1 you already mentioned. It takes two ppl or Motherboard removal to maintain it. The second is the rails that the cooler have can be bent slightly and it won't put enough pressure on the CPU. I got rid of mine, it is a PITA. I got new rails sent by CM, but just didn't have it in me to deal with the PITA installation.

Here is what I found after removing mine.:

Yeah, that is why I like the Noctua D14 style mounting system. It is actually reasonable for a person to install one of those without three hands.

Yesssss. Finally someone with the same issues as me lol. I too am returning it and trying out the hyper 212 evo because I've heard some good reviews and easier times installing. You think that will work better for me?

Not to be mean, but that looks like a totally botched TIM install.. not sure what you did but looks like you used a line not a dob in middle, didn't get it centered on CPU when you first set it down and moved it over.. I'm not sure what all you did wrong but you did do it wrong.

Well you are wrong. I used the spread method. so the whole surface of the CPU had a layer of TIM on it.
The problem was the clamp rails were warped and di not apply enough pressure like I stated.

Even if your hardware is faulty:
Quote:
Dot method, don't spread, don't parallel lines. Use a dot, half a grain of rice sized. Yes that's very little. Yes you want a paper thin layer.
Let the cooler do the spreading, it'll be infinitely better than you doing it by yourself. I bet you have quite a number of microscopic air bubbles causing poor contact.

I think that's contributing the most to your higher than average temps.
