Help w/ Ninja Scythe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there

I have a rev A scythe fan - first time doing a build

I installed it onto an e4300 board, used arctic silver 5 and its on a 965-ds3 rev 1.3.

My question is this:

On TAT my numbers are:

Core 0: 38
Core 1: 40

Stressed 100%:

Core 0: 55
Core 1: 58

I'm pretty disappointed with the numbers since this is before any overclocking whatsoever.

Vcore1: 1.18v
Vcore2: 1.81V
from Speedfan

Honestly not sure what the above voltages mean yet - still reading up on that.

But my question is - did I mount the scythe wrong? I popped open the case after I pressed start on TAT and felt the scythe and it's cool to touch.

Is there a break in period I need to wait for?

Thanks for the help.

btw: This is in an Antec P150 case and the scythe has a 120mm yat loon fan on it and exhausting out of the case is another 120mm fan. Interesting to note - both fans hooked to the MB but do not increase in speed (to my ear) when stress test begins.

AS5 has a break in check the contact patch maybe a remount would help? vcore 2 is your ram i believe.

the fan spin up is set in bios check and there it shows the rpm and the method of control but when you oc diable all of that should run at 100 percent.

Ah - okay.

I'm running on the DS3 though... (gigabyte)

So are my temperatures normal for a newly built rig with new components? Just seems high with a scythe sitting on the cpu.

I guess I was expecting this type of performance

Any help in this matter would be appreciated. I guess the last ditch thing is to relap the heatsink - but man, I wish I didn't have to take the entire DS3 board out to get to the scythe.
