Tried Everything!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I tried Audi's mechanical pencil mod to apply AS5, as well as spreading t very thing all over and everything from a half rice grain to a baby pee size dot in the center and let the Heat sink do the job bit I can't get the cores remotly close to the same temps.! Useing the TT120... I have it as of so

1:38
2:32
3:22
4:38

And this was the mechanical pencil mod. I am now at my LAST chance before i need to order some more thermal paste.. Which isn't so bad but i'll probably just waste it again! Is it that hard to install the TT evenly? Or should I try and Lap both processor and the TT? Give me some advice please. I am sick of these differences is core temps... all it tells me is that My CPu SHOULD be at 22c idle because core 3 sits beautiful at it... Help...

Another note. If anyone in the Milwaukee area is amazingly good at applying and installing heatsinks, please don't hesitate to PM me...

Have you checked if your QX9650 or heat sink is convex or concave? Have you tried putting your CPU onto your heat sink without any thermal paste and shine a light under it? If you're able to see the light from the other end, then something is not even.

PS: Radio Shack sells AS5 for $10.

Thank you Tai, I'll try that when i pick up some AS5 From Radio shack.

AS5 will work fine but you have to cycle the CPU a few times for it to set proper. Run let it heat up then cool off, about 4 times but it is also said it takes longer for AS5 to set but it is the best.

Even if the temperature drops with the thermal paste curing, it wont make up THAT big of a difference between them. To check for evenness, take a razor blade and put it on the heatsink or cpu. Hold the item in question up to a light source. If you can see light between the razor blade and the heatsink, it is uneven. I would suggest lapping at least the Turniq, because god knows those 9650s are expensive. If lapping the turniq didn't result in some better temperatures, then you might consider doing the chip as well.

There really isn't any reason why core temperatures should vary by 16C. Also, you should give the load temperatures of the cores not just the idles, that way we can see at load how much they differ. Are you using prime95 on 4 cores to stress it?

There is no way your CPU is at 22C. 22C is room temperature, you're CPU is at 4.4ghz. I think core 2 and 3 have bad thermal sensors. 38C sounds more reasonable IMO.


EDIT:
I know it "only" 2.93ghz stock and 65nm but look here (also dual core so less heat I would assume):
They have 40C idle on TT @ 3.9GHZ

Seems like 38C is more accurate
