My new temps using Coolaboratory Liquid Pro on 3770k delidded!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
This is just so cool! I didn't believe the stories you people told on here about this lowering the temps so much, this CPU was running at 88C full load using 1.180 core voltage @4.6GHz with my ZALMAN CNPS11X it was delidded and I used a few thermal compounds on it.

Now I'm running 69C full load! I'm totally shocked. I may push for something like 4.8GHz then but yea wow I'm lost here, the difference is really there it's just crazy. I'm excited because this heat issue had kept me up at nights wondering why my chip was so much hotter than others.

What do you suggest if these are my timings so far

Prime95 in custom should have 10 minute FFT's and 90% of ram used. This completely tests everything in 12 hours.

1.1700 @ 4.4 (Stable)
1.1700 @ 4.5 (10 hour failure)
1.1800 @ 4.5 (Stable)
1.1800 @ 4.6 (Stable)

Yeah mate... I did mine today too... and the difference is night and day....thumb.gif

with those volts you should be seeing way less temps.... what are your ambient temps?


I am at 4.5Ghz on 1.200V and will NOT go above 72* C with an H100i....and It's not de-lidded.

I don't know my ambient, I am in Bolingbrook, IL if that helps

Anyways considering it was 88C before this is a miracle LOL Let me push it to 1.2 volts and see what temps I get.

I live in DEEP south Texas so you can't be hotter then me lol

that is QUITE the temp difference!! Did u use the new paste on the cooler as well?

As I put on my other thread...

I'm only on a 4.4Ghz Overclock with 1.256V (Stable) with temps of ( Before De-Lidding 78-80c ) Now at an amazing 60-62c Just with AS5 and a Coolermaster V8 with a Noctua NF-F12 in it....biggrin.gif

Ambient temps around 20-24c

This De-Lidding dose work great!!!

I'm testing out 4.7GHz at 1.250 Core Voltage. I will post my screenshot if it passes 12 hours of Prime95 w/ 10 min FFT's and 90% of ram usage. So far max temp is a mere 77C

Final results using ZALMAN CNPS11X

4.7GHz @ 1.250 with 77C full load during Prime95 12 hour burn-in.

Without coolaboratory liquid pro I had 4.5GHz @ 1.180 with 88C full load.

Unachievable previously but now is stable. Clearly the thermal pastes I used on the die of the 3770k were not enough to conduct the heat properly but this liquid pro does it fine.

Here are the screenshots.

Note 1.225 was not enough to keep Prime95 from crashing so I raised it to 1.250 which seems fine now.

My new and final overclock 4.8GHz @ 1.290 Core Voltage @78C

Tested using Prime95 10 min fft's, 90%ram.

As you will see I was able to get it seemingly-stable at 4.8GHz with 1.290 Core Voltage and max temps of 78C. This is really astounding IMO for both the overclock/voltage but also the temperature changes for regular TIM to Coollaboratory Liquid Pro

To review I started off using the Hyper Evo 212, found those temps were to high even de-lidded. Then bought a ZALMAN CNPS11X which decreased my temperatures slightly more. But at best it gave me 1.180 @ 88C which made absolutely no sense considering other peoples reports. After giving in and buying Liquid Pro that is finally when I saw the temperature drops I expected/wanted.

4.6GHz @ 1.180 Core Voltage @ 88C without liquid pro. Other TIMs averaged between 88C-90C full load nothing remarkable.
4.6GHz @ 1.180 Core Voltage @ 69C with liquid pro on the die only
4.7GHz @ 1.250 Core Voltage @ 77C with liquid pro on die only
4.8GHz @ 1.290 Core Voltage @ 78C with liquid pro on the die and between the heatspreader/heatsink.

My final conclusions are:

1. Normal Thermal Pastes/Greases are not enough to properly conduct the heat away from the Ivy Bridge die. It is clear after these results it should definitely have been soldered. I also don't believe Intel doesn't know their chips drop nearly 20C in some cases using such a process, probably more if it's solder and not liquid pro.

2. The research I did showed negligible gains using liquid pro on the heatsink vs other thermal pastes/greases. This appears to be true because if you look at my results for 4.7 and 4.8 you see they are nearly identical with maybe 5c difference expected using liquid pro vs regular tims. I think I would still use liquid pro though after seeing these results.

To summarize, the heat from the die of Ivy Bridge CPU's IMO cannot be conducted correctly by regular thermal pastes/grease. Only a solder or liquid metal can properly deliver it to the heatspreader. Afterward the tim used becomes less important because the heat has already been dispersed greatly over the spreaders surface.

Thanks!
