Took off the IHS but worse temps!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Well I took the plunge and took my IHS off tonight! But when I fold I'm actually seeing a 1C jump in temps! I've reseated twice now, and it looks like its making contact with the CPU. Any ideas why this is happening?

Many people have trouble pressing it down hard enough becuase the hs bracket doesnt let it go down that far. If this is the case, a simple mod can be done.

Thats what I was thinking... I might do it now but I'm really tired for some reason. Thanks guys!

EDIT: What do you consider "shaving"? I ask because I did a little with a file but not a ton. Should it be completely noticable?

You probably need to lap your CPU die. Just kidding!!!!!!!!Sounds like your HSF definitely isn't making proper contact with the CPU. Remember to put even less thermal compound than normal on the CPU.

Well I dremeled it and now its doing the whole BSODing on startup and just being evil in general. I took quite a bit of plastic off with my dremel so I think I just have to apply a REALLY small amount of AS5 just to get everything right. I'm gonna fix it tomorrow though since I'm way too tired to do anything correctly at the moment. Thanks!

Yea it boots at 2.02Ghz so its just when I OC I get the whole windows BSOD thing and freezing up. Just means I have to work on my mounting. I probably should've done this today but the girlfriend wanted to hang out and you cant really say no....
