All things being equal. When I put after-market fans on them, the results were proportionally the same (within 1c)
Thanks!
:thumb:I would love to see more data from your testing. thumb.gif
What after-market fans did you use?


I tried the listed HS's with the stock fans as well as Cougar Vortex, Noctua NF-P14, Scythe, and Deltas (just for fun) they are impractical, and the results were all proportionally the same.
They were all run @ 23c ambient and using IC Diamond TIM.

Hope thats helpsm in some way smile.gifthumb.gif

It does, thanks!. thumb.gif

How is your test system set up?
Do you monitor the temperature of the air actually going into the cooler intakes?

Could you start a thread for your testing? Hate hi-jacking this one. redface.gif

Hello again,

any quick tips how to remove/ clean old mess(paste) left from stock cooler and how much to apply installing D14?
(Tips in general as this is my first build and aftermarket cooler installation.)

Thank you.

Thank you.

...You remove the old paste with 99% Isopropyl/rubbing alcohol with a lint free cloth. Not with tissue paper or anything that could have trace. ...Ever tried YouTube? A video could probs help you better. As for applying TIM on a cooler... same rule, unless it has strange uneven surface... Google/YouTube is your friend. Or, just use a rice grain sized amount of TIM in the middle of the CPU, and don't spread it. Let the cooler weight evenly spread it.
