i got a different X40 from newegg today and its pump is quiet biggrin.gif i was lazy and thought **** it ill use the stock thermal paste that comes pre-applied on the X40. i noticed my temps are 6C or so higher than they were with the past X40 using arctic silver ceramique 2.

what thermal paste are you using? should i take this thing apart and use my arctic silver ceramique? and are these temps during heavy gameplay or vally / heaven benchmark? my max temp was hitting around 54C in heaven with stock voltages, 1117mhz core 100% power target.

before, my temps in vally never gone past 48C

****UPDATE TO MY ABOVE POST***

decided to take it apart and use arctic silver ceramique 2. temps were the same. was hitting 51C in vally after about 3 minutes of running it. im like this is not right. i went back and put my noisy pump X40 on and boom. sitting at 46C and its been running for a good 10 minutes. also temps idling were at 25C when before it was sitting around 31C. with the other X40 i have right here. i know i didnt put to much thermal paste on it. im very precise with how much i apply.

guess ill be living with the noisy pump for the lower temps. lol. still have no idea why the other X40 AIO is giving me higher temps. using the same fan. have pump plugged into a 12v molex adapter and everything is good. whatever. back to awesome temps. was using the ACX cooler for the past week. it was better than the stock reference cooler but still not that great. was hitting 65C in titanfall and i have that game capped at 60fps (would only use 60% of power limit)

Yeah that is weird. Not sure why the temps are so much different. I used article silver 5. All my testing was done with an hour of heaven benchmark. Getting a slim fan today to have a push pull going to see if I can't lower that a little more. Best I could get from my card was 1230 on core. Forget what memory was. I know +300 on evga x.

hi..im not an owner of g10..but ill gladly help were i can..

@valkyri....check the base of that new x40..with a spirit level/flat metal ruler to see if its 80-100%flat base or not..

try shaking it while holding it to get rid of any air bubbles...hook it up outside the case and give power to the pump..let it run for a hour or so..place the rad higher above the pump..

do not use the paste ever..that comes pre
applied..its either crap or crap and to much..


@other..as5...every1 always try to down this tim..it may be old school..but its still pretty darn good..keeps my gpu far away from 50° highest ive seen is 47° still about 5-10° cooler than what i ever got with the twinfrozr cooler..i salute yo for using as5..

Well I posted this in the 290x owner club but maybe this a better place. I applied a G10 with an H90 to my Tri-X and my temps are horrible. They start at 47c and then slowly rise after about 20 mins of idling to near 70c. I tried re-seating and switching out the stock H90 thermal paste to MX-4 as well, but it made no difference. I noticed the bracket pulls away from the GPU when you plug in the PCI-E cables as well and am wondering if this is causing seating issues.

Overall the design on these seems pretty poor and I am just thinking about returning them and the H90s I bought and going back to stock.

Well as far as the temps go and the fact that the bracket moves isn't good. Seems like it isn't seating for sure.

Well the bracket is seated as instructed. The proper mounting holes are there, and the H90 is secured tightly. I also forgot to mention that my board is being warped by the bracket.

I agree. When I had skyrocketting temps, it wasn't seated properly.
