G3258 + MSI z97 (Microcenter special)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I delided my G3258 and planned on dropping the 212 evo on top of the die but failed... temps were higher then before due to some errors I made.

1. Not enough pressure was created due to the cooler having to sit about 2mm lower. I could have corrected this by placing something under the X retention device of the cooler.
2. I should have kept the cpu support bracket in the back.









I lapped the 212 evo some what also
Stock



400 grit



600



800



1000 dry



1500



2000



Msi z97 PC Mate




I removed the mounting mechinism which also dropped the back plate for the cpu, I should have used some washers and put the screws back with the plate.



Installed mounting for the cooler.




Due to the heatsink sitting lower i wasn't able to mount it blowing upwards..it was hitting something so i moved it to blow back.

FAIL!!!

.....but I lapped the IHS and stuck it back in and I'm able to do 4.8Ghz stable max temp was 82 with p95 and cpu voltage at 1.47 cigar.gif







Do you see any settings i can change other then vcore and ram freq that will get me to 4.9Ghz?

Was considering doing the same thing myself but was worried about the mounting height difference ... topping at 4.4Ghz here with the stock cooler before hitting 80c.

You can play with VCCIN voltage but 4.8 is pretty good if you can just get temps down.

direct die with an air cooler is asking for a cracked die.

Direct die isn't what I meant when recommending you delid the chip. doh.gif

When delidding you replace the cruddy factory intel thermal paste between the die and ihs with your own preferred paste, then reseat the ihs (without glue) back over the die and carefully secure it in place by clamping it down with the socket's latch.

Looks like you figured it out in the end though, 4.8GHz isn't bad for a Hyper 212 EVO. smile.gif

update: I used some CL liquid pro on the die and heatsink and got the temp down to 72c max on prime.
