Freezer 7 Pro

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My new Core 2 Duo (e6600) computer is arriving probably on monday, and I have just that day to build it and see if my cpu works so that I can return it if it doesn't. I don't know much about hardware (I'm a programmer... I usually stay within my own software world.)

Which is the best way for the fans to be? Should I leave on the thermal paste that it comes with, or should I use my arctic silver (AC5, I guess). Someone said that the paste it comes with is better.
I noticed there is talk about "lapping" on these forums? My interpretation is that lapping is sanding the copper heatsink down for better contact between the cpu and the heatsink. Should I do this? And how exactly?

Sorry for all the questions.

Use AS5, not the stock pad. And don't bother lapping until you're ready to really push your temps, otherwise you could ruin a perfectly fine HSF. That's a great Heatsink unit, and you're going to have a nice computer on your hands in the next day or so. You should make a build log to show everyone how it goes!

I would leave the stock compound on, I did and I like it, to see what temps your getting, its all up to you if you like your temps theres no need to lap but if your not getting good temps then you should start experimenting with applying different compounds and maybe lapping

I agree with the previous statement. I did alot of researching about this and also found that the stock stuff is supposedly better. While folding I hit 39C tops.

Sapphire Radeon X1950PRO
ASUS P5B Deluxe
Patriot 1GB DDR2 DDR2 800 (No heatspreader or heatsink. I'm a little disappointed that I ordered this ram, even though it hasn't arrived yet!)
250gb WD SATA HDD

"Good temps" to me is anything less than 30c. Probably not going to happen.

Which way should the fan on the cooler be pointing (idealy) ?

don't mean to sound rude but the box will tell you the right way to point it, as I had it the wrong way before I picked up my box about ready to throw it away and saw this and was like O SNAP. I quickly just switched it around. Also the stock paste is MX-1, very good stuff.

That what I was guessing. Thanks.

I'll probably have more questions when I'm actually building it (hopefully I'll have someone helping me with it. For me, the hardest part is putting the cpu in the socket, and the heatsink on the cpu. Everything else should be pretty easy.)
