So, you are running default clocks and voltages?

If you do not intend to overclock, and you are not going to stress the CPU anymore than you have with the various benchmark/stress apps you have used, then I would not worry about it.

However... if you intend to overclock, you will probably need to de-lid and replace the OEM TIM with something better.

Also, watercooling could help get the temps down a bit, especially load temps.

Was probably going to overclock in the future yes. I will get some arctic silver 5 or a better paste next week. Adding one more fan to the cooler is a good ideea also. Should I try to overclock it a bit and see how it performs? Currently at base clocks with manual voltage to 1.2( auto from asus was going up till 1.4 and had higher temps+10). I can still return the cpu to get it rplaced though, maybe will have better luck with temps? Also set thr fans to full speed after reseating.( before they werent on silent either, normal)

Yes, try overclocking, and manual settings are always better, in my opinion.

For overclocking what do you recommend to try (different steps and values for each voltage needed).

I switched to adaptive mode in BIOS and I think the temps look a bit better:

XTU Benchmark max temp was 60C.

AIDA


RealBench


Cinebench was also <65. Are these temps good like this ?

LE: Agreed about manual values, just that the auto option was by default selected. Switched as soon as I found out about the voltage increase.

LE2: Also FireStrike temps are max 60 (59 actually)

Gonna give a slight bump. Just purchased the Arctic Cooling MX-4 today, and I think I'm going to replace the TIM from the cpu cooler when I get off of work later. I really don't look forward to reinstalling the cooler a 3rd time since it's a pain to mount properly but if there is no other option right now..I'm gonna go for it.

I hope I'm not overstepping some rules by replying again but just wanted to say that I applied the MX-4(vertical line), reseated the cooler and the temps are pretty much the same. Maybe 2C difference here and there. I'm considering trying to return the cpu cooler and buy something better, and maybe try to swap the cpu also. What do you guys think ?

*how* are you applying the TIM? dot, line or using a paint brush? too much is as bad as not enough.

but yeah, new/better cooler, delid or lower voltage w/o swapping chips.

This time when applying the MX-4 I placed it in a vertical line. I'll attach a photo, remembered to take one now.

Picture of old thermal paste spread:



The line- I ended up picking up a bit with the coffee filter since I feel it was too thick.

In my opinion, that is way too much.

I always use the 'grain of rice' method. A small dot in the center of the IHS, and carefully seat the cooler so the TIM spreads evenly.

Remember, the purpose of TIM is to fill any microscopic imperfections in the IHS and base to the cooler.

Theoretically, if both surfaces were perfectly smooth and flat (obviously impossible) and were in contact with each other across 100% of both surfaces, then TIM would not be necessary.

If you really want to improve your temperatures;

1) De-lid and replace the OEM TIM (liquid metal type TIM is preferred).

2) Get better cooling solution (water cooler would be my suggestion, All-In-One are cheapest, custom loops are considerably more expensive, and require a lot more work to setup).

3) You could buy a binned CPU which might run cooler.

its a little too much in the red and what it ought to be in the green:




and wow, i forgot how rough the bottom of an EVO is. tongue.gif

but i have done the same and seen much worse.

if i were in your shoes, i'd start OCing to see where the temps starting getting too uncomfortable and think if re-applying w/slightly less TIM or getting another cooler after that.

but that is me.
