Changed paste, temp rises

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I recently changed from MX-1 to artic silver on my E6600, and temps seems to have gone up - with little change to water temps.

At the moment I'm running it 400x8 (3.2GHz) after letting the paste settle for almost 3 days. The temps seems to have stabilized at 60C after running Orthos for load testing it.

Should I reseat it? In order to get it to this speed I had to raise vcore to one notch under 1.5v.

What is most unsettling for me is that water temps don't seem to match the changes in cpu temp. My water is 24 degrees going into the unit and 22 going out...

Ideas? Won't be able to to anything to the hardware today, but maybe tomorrow...

Well apart from reseating you have to remember that AS5 takes 200 Hours to cure...You wont see superb temps until around that time.

Thanks, enterprise! That's what I was, in part, looking for. Both cores are equally hot, and it's not "extremely" hot at load - so I don't think it needs reseating...

Cheers!

This is strange, and a little unpleasant - after 5 days temp hasn't dropped a single degree compared to first day temps...

Maybe air pockets? If their is air pockets, you could have serious temperature issues.

Word, that 200hr curing time is a bunch of baloney, you may convince yourself that its true but It's not. Maybe a 1-2 degree drop after the aformentioned 200hr cure time..

Wrong 200 Hours is the Full cure time for AS5..During the time of curing you will see a temp drop unless you have applied to much. You want to apply a BB pellet sized amount.

Well, I reseated the hs today and got a 2 degree drop right after compared to 5 days curing the last time. The only difference was that I followed the updated application guidelines on their web pages for C2D. Guess the line I made is equal to a little less than a grain of rice I'm looking forward to seeing what difference it makes to load temps.

At 3.2GHz and 1.5vcore it's idling at 39/41 (core 1/2). Haven't tried it with load yet, but it's better than the 41/43 I had, with load temps of high 50s.

I have tried multiple ways. bb sized, rice sized, small line down the middle as the makers of as5 recomend I have spread with a credit card I have spready by hand with a plastic bag over it. none of them have made any change even with 200 hours to sit and "cure"
