Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L Thread - Page 219

post #2181 of 4644
Hi,

Ive just got my new Scyther Mine Rev B CPU cooler, what is the best way to apply the thermal paste ? Some people say that you spread it all over the cpu using a credit card and others say you just put a line of thermal paste dow the middle and dont spread it.

Which way is the best ????????????

Thanks

Here are the links for Arctic Silver, this should apply to most thermal paste applications.

For Quad Core Apps:

For Dual Core Apps:

The stuff goes a long way and you don't need much. Just remember that too much can be just as bad as not enough.

Does anyone know what the real temps for an E8400 on this board are supposed to be? Just built it so it's stock clocks at the moment.
Artic Freezer 7 pro (pwm)
Everest Ultimate
cpu 27c
#1/#1 45c
#1/#2 45c

Core Temp 0.98.1
45C
45C

Real Temp 2.41
35c
min 34c
max 38

HW Monitor 1.07.1
45c
45c

SpeedFan 4.34
Core 0 40c
Core 1 40c

Thanks

those temps seem really high for an e8400. You might want to try a reseat of your heat sink. Did you apply too much thermal paste? You only need a very thin line. Also, I would trust coretemp the most out of those.

I agree. The stock idle temps are a bit high. You might want to make sure that Arctic Cooler is seated properly with the pins all the way through the mobo on all 4 pins. The best monitor for that E8400 is Real Temp. It was designed specifically for the E8400.

Ive just installed my new Scyther Mine Rev B and its worse than the stock intel cooler, i think it is bottoming out on the black resistors or what ever they are around the cpu socket rather than sitting flush on the cpu. I going to send it back.

What cpu cooler shall i buy that is 100% compatable with this board and is a good cooler so i can overclock to 3GHz and beyond ?

Thanks

This is what I got.
Real Temp shows like 10c cooler.
Bios also said 36c

Thought you weren't going to OC anymore when I put in my 2 cents.

I am getting a TRUE which should be coming in today with my Centurion 5.

My Arctic Square could do 3.4Ghz at 62C while being somewhat lapped and the price seemed good. I got it for 45$ off Newegg.

Here are some recommendations:
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
Zalman 9700
Tuniq Tower
Big Typoon

I'm not sure about your case, but to be safe, do a little searching on google and type in your case model and the cooler you want.

Note: The recommended coolers get the job done, but are pretty big. The TRUE should fit. The Thermalright website has a compatibility list for the TRUE, and the DS3L is listed as compatible. The rest depends on your case.

I am going to be using a Zalman CNPS9500A, which I think will be a tight fit in my case, but looking at the attached comparison, the TRUE is 7°C better.

Do I need to update the bios (F7) to F8a or b and what would be the safest way if I need to?
someone on Newegg stated this is how to do it?
-download F8b to a usb drive
-F6 at boot
-flash
