I always thought you want the smallest gap between the cooler and the CPU to make the TIM work at its best

Try adjusting it. You do want a small gap but at some point it is putting a lot of pressure on it.

The smallest gap is the best with regard to damaging the retaining hardware. Thermal paste is only there to fill in imperfections, not to be used as a "sheet" in between.

No gaps, gaps are bad. As much contact as possible is what you want.

Sorry I meant to say thermal paste should be the only thing in between and not too much of it. Sorry long day lol

That's not really a problem, I finally figured it out after cooking a cpu...

Anyway, I think the problem is with the H60, its several generations old. I originally bought it for a Phenom 965 that I bought 3ish years ago.

Unless the pump is broken I don't think your temps should be so high. I have the original as well and my cpu is supposedly much hotter then the intel. (Idk if that is or isn't true)

Do you have the CPU power management features enabled or disabled? If they're disabled and you're running 4.5 GHz at all times, that's a reasonable idle temp for an H60. Your load temps look fine. Disabling power management serves no purpose, except raising idle temps and costing more on your monthly electric bill.

Regarding gaps. NO. Just plain and simple, NO. Heatsink or water block should be in direct contact with the heat spreader, with a 0.003" layer of thermal grease to fill in the microscopic gaps in the metal surface. We're talking a semi-transparent layer of grease here, a human hair or two thick.

Mine reads 4100ish RPMs, I do know when its off though. I need to move it over to a direct 12v connection.

My motherboard likes to think it knows more than me and spins all the fans connected to it down to save power when the extra cooling isn't needed.

I stopped this

I disabled C1E and speedstep because they messed with my OC, but I left everything else alone.

You're going to be doomed to relatively high idle temps then. Those people getting 32-36C idles are running 1.2-1.6 GHz at idle, not 4.5 GHz.

At stock, optimised defaults as my bios calls it, I idle at 42c. Still not wonderful.
