I used a pea size amount in the middle. But yeah I'm considering pulling off the heatsink and redoing it.

Another thing, see how in the photo above I have the heatsink positioned vertically. Well the heatsink plate is not square, its rectangular. So I kind of have it across the CPU, whereas positioned the other way looked more natural.

Wondering if I should position it like this instead:



Here's what the heatsink base plate looks like. In this direction the length of the rectangular plate better matches the CPU rectangular form:

Nice thread. I'm in the boat with happy X58 owners too, W3570 here.

This thread almost got me to jump on an X5670 on eBay, but the W3570 at 4.1Ghz is fast enough still. Even for an extremely cpu hungry game like Supcom FA where single thread performance is vital. You can't beat an overclocked Haswell / Ivy / Sandy but you can easily match their stock performance. This means you are set for even the largest teamgames because the simpeed only runs as fast as the slowest link in the chain. At this rate the W3570 will last me another 3-4 years lol.

and yeah, i'm in love with this board, there are options i never heard of in the bios compare to asus, however i heard x58 was the last socket gigabyte went the extra mile on. their x79 and x99 boards seems quite lacking in verities and the color scheme looks like its tailored towards a 12 year old.

Lol I know what you mean, X58 seems my platform

Thats with core voltage @ 1.35 too.


You should intake from the rear and put your fan right up to the rear intake and let it exhaust out the top. Trust me, I works so much better. Also, I would lap that true and penny mod it. It shaves off a ton of degrees.

My x5650 did 4ghz on 1.2v but it only lasted a few months before I had problems with it. It passed everything I threw at it originally (in May I think) but then just failed on everyday computing in August. Since May/June I have had to slowly raise it a few tenth's every other Month, or so, until it made it to 1.3v. But yeah some of these seem to be really good at first and then slowly change with time. At least mine is and a few other's here have seen the same thing. I think 1.30v to 1.35v is best for these though.

I see you have the same heatsink, let me ask you... Is the rectangular base plate of your true aligned in the same direction as the rectangular shape of the cpu?

I don't have that setup anymore and are you talking about the back plate? Not sure if it would matter. redface.gif

1. I don't fancy trying the penny mod, bus is it worth lapping the CPU and heatsink with some sort of kit like this? http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_3719.html

And then my plan is to make the rear an intake and make the heatsink lay horizontally exhausting out the top two 140mm fans.

2. I considered just swapping my true for some sort of AIO cooler... raijintek triton looks nice but is two 120mm fans whereas my case is built for 140mm fans up top.

Reason I'm considering the swap is #1 my temp issues above #2 it is an absolute ***** to remove and replace my heatsink, takes about 30 minutes and lots of swearing. The screw holes are right under the fan on one side and it needs a lot of pressure to screw in.
