Is there a better Asetek AIO style cooler retention method or kit for haswell?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have recently bought and i7-4770k which has been mated with a NZXT Kraken x60. It does cool it and I am aware of haswell's poor IHS/glue... It actually cooled my AMD FX-8150 @ 4.6GHz better than haswell though. And could tell it was work by the sheer heat pumping out of the cooler.
Now my 4770k is stock though runs multicore tubro and gets up to over 60°C, but the water temps don't move alot. It is like it needs better contact or more clamping pressure. I have remounted it and only use Arctic Silver 5, even after two weeks there was a bit of a drop with the curing but still seems like the CPU is hot and the water is not.


So does anyone know of a better backplate, retention ring or a kit to clamp it better?

I have found this http://dx.com/p/metal-cpu-cooling-fan-back-plate-silver-147179


A metal backplate for the asetek style coolers and it is only US$3.48
But it doesn't have any form of electrical shielding on it, the I am sure I could rig something up out of some rubber and glue.
Would rather an actual plate with shielding on it though I haven't been able to turn up much else for the 1150/1155/1156

Any ideas?

I assume you don't want to delid, so better TIM is your best option.

Coollaboratory liquid pro/ultra is the best, and unlike traditional TIM, it isn't sensitive to contact pressure at all.

Yeah not keen to delid a CPU less than a month old. But I have looked into it!
I have also found this http://dx.com/p/intel-1156-cpu-i3-i5-cpu-cooling-fan-back-plate-black-147177
It is US $1.75!


I think if I use Coollaboratory liquid ultra and another mounting plate/ring, still won't be any better than delidding but has to be better than whatever is going on atm with it.
