My 2600k temps seem a bit high - Page 2

post #11 of 22
My bet is the mounting brackets are just not tight enough. How do you apply TIM? Try going big next time with a large blob in the center to ensure the entire CPU lid is covered when the heatsink is applied. It may not be the most efficient way to apply TIM but it can determine if TIM is the actual problem. My guess is still the mounting. Are those the screws that came with the cooler? They look odd. Are they screwing into the motherboard or the backplate screwholes?

I tightened the mounting bracket, as well as the retention bar as hard as was possible. The retention bar seems to have its threading stop at a certain point, I guess to prevent overtightening.

I also put a blob in the centre. It seems to be enough to get a pretty complete coverage of the IHS.

The mounting system is pretty much identical to the Noctua NH-D14. It's hard to explain, so just look up pictures of its mounting mechanism.

The K2 and NH-D14 are about same at cooling. Moparman did tested them and found 2-3c max difference.

Vortez and Guru3d show them almost identical

That's good to know. What temps would a D14 on a 2600k be getting at 1.45V?

I ordered some new TIM, since I am running out of MX-2 after 5 mounts. My MX-2 might just have been a bad batch. I also tried the paste that came with the cooler, but that performed just as well.

Sorry I can't tell you what the temps would be. Chips perform differently when overclocked.. some get real hot, some don't.

Well, do D14s tend to get hot to the touch when running at high voltages on Sandy Bridge? My cooler feels maybe 40 degrees at most.

The base of cooler gets hot, the top of the pipes is usually not.

Liquid vaporizes in pipes at base. The expansion of vaporizing pushes vapor out toward the ends and as it cools and condenses it contracts, collects on the wick on inside of surface of pipes and is drawn back to base.

That makes more sense. Hopefully the new TIM I've ordered will work better. It still feels like it should be performing better.

Well, I got back to my computer today and decided to run a stress test, and the maximum temperature on small FFTs was now 87 degrees instead of over 90 degrees. The ambient temperature doesn't seem to have changed significantly. The top of the cooler was also noticeably warmer. This seems like what happened when I installed my intel stock cooler on this board, briefly; the temperature dropped after a day for some reason. I think something strange is going on with this TIM.

Well, my new TIM arrived.

After putting on IC diamond, the core temperature decreased a few degrees. I also tried Phobya HeGrease, but the temperature increased; I must have put on too much or not enough or something. I guess the MX-2 was the problem then.
