Indigo Xtreme and Thermalright Heatsinks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone on here gotten Indigo Xtreme to work with a Thermalright Heatsink? I have a HR-02 and just ordered some IX the other day with the intention of improving temps slightly, but it seems like IX isn't compatible with the Thermalright mounting system? According to this thread, anyway: http://www.overclock.net/t/1118758/indigo-xtreme-with-the-silver-arrow-review/0_100


If you have gotten IX to work with a Thermalright heatsink such as the HR-02, Silver Arrow, or Archon (all have similar mounting mechanisms), please chime in.

If it's really not incompatible, I guess I'll give it to a friend or post it for sale on here.

Thanks

I'd advise against using Indigo Xtreme. The removal is hell. You have to sand the surface of your CPU IHS and the HS's base. It also eats away as aluminium is memory serves.

Sounds more like CLU, I thought IX was safe for aluminum.

Indigo Extreme is extremely hard to use. CPU and cooler base have to bet very hot! I've heard of peeps rapping their coolers in blankets to stop heat loss so IX would get hot enough to melt and flow.. Cleanup is impossible after a few months. I don't consider sanding TIM off of CPU and cooler "cleaning." rolleyes.gif

No thanks. For an extra couple of degrees it's not worth possibly damaging CPU by overheating it to get enough heat to flow the IX.rolleyes.gif

I used IX with a Thermalright HR-02 and an i7 960. It worked fine.

The only issue I had was that I had to cover the heatsink with a towel for it to get hot enough to melt the IX.
