Changed from stock Cpu Cooler to Hyper 212X... temp is still the same!?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Before I begin, I'd like to mention that I'm new to these cooling stuff and I only very recently decided to join the enthusiasts club.

I'm using a Rampage Gene 3 and Intel i7 950.

With my CPU running at 50C (Degrees) at normal startup load, I figured I would want to actually put in a new CPU Cooler apart from the stock Intel one.

Thing is, when I installed the CPU Cooler and booted up the BIOS, the temperature was still an average of 50C! The new Hyper 212X was cold to the touch even though I let it run for a bit at 50C as well.

Figured I'd poke around a bit and I actually found out something weird --



This black heatsink (which I have no idea what it is) is the one that's actually feels warm/hot to the touch instead of the Hyper 212X's heatsinks.

Am I doing something wrong which actually makes the heat get transferred to the black heatsink, or is that normal? How do I actually get the heat to transfer from the CPU to the Hyper 212X instead?

I guess that heatsink is cooling other parts of the motherboard not the cpu itself.

Have you tried re-applying thermal paste?

Can you show us a screenshot of the temp?

That heatsink must be for the Voltage Regulators considering that is an overclocking board?

That is the Northbridge chip which runs hot. 40-70c is normal.

It is normal for heatpipes to be cool at the ends. The hot area is over the CPU. They work by CPU boiling liquid in pipe. This liquid to vapor expansion pushes the vapor out the pipes where it cools, condenses, contracts and is wicked back to the cpu and the cycle starts over. If the tops of pipes get very warm, even warm to the touch the cycle does not perform as it should.

As for your CPU temp being the same with 212 and stock coolers I suspect either a poor mount/seat or fan is not spinning up to speed like it should. What case and GPU do you have?

Under that black passive heatsink lies the X58 chipset:

It's not thermally related to the CPU heatsink.

A couple of things to check...

1. What thermal paste have you applied and what was your method/quantity?
2. What case are you using to house this PC?
3. Have you got any other fans in the case and where are they located/direction of air flow?

(Also can you fill out the specs of your PC for your signiture then we can better help you.

Thanks for the help guys. Going with the question flow:

1. I was using Arctic Silver 4 with 2 pea sized drops at the 33% and 66% mark on the surface of the heatsink. (I'm not sure if you get what I mean with this)
2. I'm using a Micro ATX CPU Casing, Elite 341 if you want to be more specific.
3. I've got 2 blowing straight on the mobo, 1 at the back going out, 1 at the front blowing in. The average RPM of all fans is roughly 1800rpm.

I'm thinking that maybe my heatsink isn't exactly pressed down on the processor itself... does this happen? I did make sure to press down, though...

So the csse set up seems to suggest you should get some reduction with new hyper 212. I suggest you should resit the heatsink and use one pea size application of the TIM applied to the cpu. Clean both cpu and heatsink before resitting. It is possible to have too much TIM

Depending on what tool you're using to read the sensor, and which sensor it is, there is one of them that ALWAYS reads 50C on my boards, no matter what the load and conditions are. Are you measuring CPU temps with something like CORETEMP ?

For X58, 50C is very common if your northbridge is @ 50 because the northbridge is heating up the socket as well.
Anyway FYI a hyper 212X won't do much in terms of cooling LGA1366. Don't be fooled by the frosty benchmarks neither by the hwsecrets of the H212 Evo
