WC Finally up and running, thanks to a little mod

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As I posted earlier, Swiftech didn't ship an AM2 hold down plate with my Apex Ultra

So I managed to make my own AM2 hold-down plate, by using the original AM2 plastic bracket. I just drilled an extra hole on each side of the bracket to fasten it to the current Apogee plate, and then just simply fastening the entire thing to the motherboard with the existing screw holes on the bracket itself, works like a charm.
This is purely a temporary setup, I've ordered a D-tek Fuzion in any case, should be here this Friday/Saturday. However, here my temps on idle/load.

CPU OC from 2.5 to 2.9, voltage upped as well.
System: Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultra, all standard
Arctic Compound thermal grease that came with the system.
Loop: Pump > Rad > CPU > Res > Pump

Temp drop is about 15C on idle, and 10C on load from the stock AMD fan.

I'm hoping to see better results with the Fuzion + AS5

Idle:


Load:


Bracket Mod:


Yes I need a new case....:

16 - 42 is a big jump!

And the difference between the two cores is pretty mega! Are you sure it is reporting the correct temperatures?

I did notice that, I actually use Everest to read my temps, which are far different from Core Temp. Everest gives me a single overall temp, an idle of 34C and load of about 53C aswell, still a big jump, not to sure why it does that, but still gives me a core 1/core 2 temperature which is the same as Core Temp's.
There was also a big jump on idle - load with the fan cooler to, my assumption is that it was normal. But I am still curious on the temp difference between the 2 cores.

Looks good, and you got it going...You will probably see better temp's with the Fuzion and a metal mounting plate...It will usually drop a little more after a few days as it settles in....Thanks for the pic's...
