Thanks for any input on this matter, just trying to gauge application method and subsequent temperatures obtained with your CPU.

FYI, our own testing has shown the line method that's demonstrated in the instructions is the best method for achieving optimal spread of thermal paste. The reason the dot in the middle might not achieve the best spread is because unless you put the block on perfectly flat you will likely push the paste to one side or the other on the IHS. Our line method prevents this from occuring and thus results in a nearly perfect spread of thermal past each time you apply it.

This is mainly for Intel processors. AMD CPUs tend to do better with the small dot in the center.

Line is probably better for most Intel CPU's but for AMD I'd go bb.

For AMD I would have to agree with you. AMD processors aren't under the same pressure that Intel's are when they're sitting in the socket and so therefore the small dot in the middle will usually work better. AMD's also tend to have a mounting system that all but ensures that the block will be installed flat to the surface. At least ours certainly does.

also have to note that AMD cpus are convex, and Intel cpus are concave upwards.

Do you happen to know how it affects ocing headroom for Fx chips?

I'd like to add that for X79 chips you have to do an X pattern and some extra bb dots for good measure. The IHS is GINORMOUS!

Can anyone confirm if the H220 fits in a HAF 922 case? I am thinking of buying one while NCIX has it in stock for cheap.

From what I've read it takes a little bit of modding to get the H220 to fit inside the case. This is due to the lack of room at the top for the radiator, fans, and integrated reservoir. Unfortunately we never received one of these cases to actually test fit our kit into it.

Well you two for the most part just sold me on the line method for Haswell, I had been looking for a nice de-lid picture like that for Haswell, to see the core's shape, and this pretty much confirms the line method would provide excellent coverage for said CPU. I recently put together an i5 haswell system, using a Noctua NH-D14, and used a 5mm application (I measured it just for kicks too) and have been getting anywhere from 17C to 23C idle temps. Max I've gotten with 25 runs of IntelBurnTest is 65C, while typical gaming has been around 49C. So now I'm curious to try the line method with my build using the glacer using the haswell chip.

Out of curiosity, what line thickness, and how far up/down to do it? The instructions from Swiftech make the line look like too thick and too far out.
How does this look?


Would this line and thickness cut it?

If you noticed in the H220's instructions, that's a 2011 socket chip, so I'd imagine Brian's recommendation stands, use line method.

The line method is going to be thicker for a socket 2011 than for a socket 1150.
