TRUE vs Scythe Ninja - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Those temperatures do seem a little to high for the TRUE because I'm idling at 35C at 3.64GHz with 1.40V. You should lap the TRUE because you will notice a huge drop in temperature. After lapping my TRUE I noticed a drop in 6-7C for all cores. You may also consider using a good thermal interface material and make sure you don't put to much on also. I've had my TRUE facing both directions and it doesn't seem to have affected the cooling potency at all in either directions. For a good fan with high CFM and low dBA I recommend these if you can get them in the UK:

You will have to modify them because the clip won't fit on them until you remove the plastic in between the screw holes which can easily be done with a dremel.

Cheers sillykid, I'll have a look around for them. I'm using Arctic Silver 5, and I'm fairly sure i've not put too much of it on, but I'm going to check the bottom is flat and I'll try using less AS when I remount it.

With AS5 you will have to let it cure before it is fully functional. If you can't find those Yate Loon fans these will also be pretty good but they have a short life span from tests done on them.

Well I've re-mounted it yet again, followed the guide on AS's website as to exactly how to apply it for quads, and I also used the penny trick to increase the mount pressure, although I think I may have put a little too much AS5 on, but we'll see. Also done a shedload of cable tidying to try and increase airflow (and make it look nicer).

Got a new fan coming, couldn't get hold of any Yate Loons though, nowhere seems to have the 120mm ones in stock so I've gone with the Noctua.

Since doing the above my temps have dropped a couple of degrees at idle, and are sitting at 57/54/54/56 degrees celsius after an hour of running Prime95. Hopefully a new fan will drop this down a bit.

I recommend lapping it now if all you've done hasn't worked out for you.
