Blasted Tuniq Tower...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Argh! After installation, I'm getting erratic temperatures. On my 9700LED I used to get about 45C, now I'm at about ~51. And it jumps around alot. I'm sure those stupid thumbscrews that it came with are the issue; I can't clamp them all down cause I can't reach them all. Is it possible to use an actual screw for those or something? On the 680i, it's just too hard to reach them enough to really screw them in in my experience.

Plus! whoever told me that a 120x120x38mm fan would work with the Tuniq, was wrong. It's far too thick.

Are you sure that the base of the Tuniq is sitting flush with the CPU? With the way you actually adjust the thumb bolts yourself the Tuniq may be tilted on the CPU.

And yeah, the thickest fan you can fit is 28mm.

I'm sure it's not. But the problem is, the reason it wouldn't sit flush would probably BE the thumbscrews. And I can't get to all of them to adjust them correctly I don't think.

If you don't have a pair, get some nose-needle pliers to twist the screws. Unfortunately the top of the screw may come off (not due to the pliers but due to the fact that many of the Tuniq screws are defective).

Or you can take out the motherboard and twist the screws again >_>

Thumbscrews were used (I'm assuming) cause its pretty difficult to line up a screwdriver with a screwhead with that big aluminum block in the way.

I've had issues them as well (one of my thumbscrew's head popped off on a remount - at which point i learned HOW to use a screwdriver with a big aluminum block in the way ) But it's no worse or better than any other heatsink mounting I've worked with. They're all pretty much a pain.

Are you using the right thumbscrews? I know mine came w/ 2 different lengths for different mobos.

If you really need to go to home depot and pick up an L-screw and some screws of appropriate length and just use that. Doesn't matter what screws you use as long as it's mounted steady.

I just took out my mobo to install mine. Wonderful temps too.

For me to get to the thumbscrews, I have to uninstall my PSU and rear chasis fan...

I see you have a Quad, the line across is the method recommended when applying AS5 or any Thermal Paste.

Guys just take your mobo out, install the HSF then reseat the Mobo and HSF as one piece. Trust me, it's far easier than bending your fingers into places they can't reach, and not being able to even get the thumb screws slightly tight..

The first time I installed mine I unscrewed my PSU and my rear fan just like Nitteo and slide/batterd the HSF up on in there, well not batterd as such but it was just a sloppy installation. It played on my mind, *what if they're not tight, thats a big heavish HSF*.. So yea, I whiped my board out and reinstalled them into my case as one piece..

agreed. You have to take the mobo off to install any big hsf.
