TRUE vs IFX-14 - Page 4

post #31 of 41
feck, 13 deg dif???

refit it asap m8, and im sure if you get the paste/fitting right it will help even that out.

how much voltage are you pushing thru that chip to get a core hitting 62c under load? when i was testing mine i gave it 1.4v at 3.6ghz (more than it needed yes but i wanted to rule out the cpu as the cause of my crashes) i only hit 46/48c under load.

I'm at 1.3875 right now, and I'm pretty sure that my temp readers are not correct, that doesn't seem right at all. I know my IHS is slightly concave, so I really do need to get around to lapping. I've reseated it twice since I first built, and i've always gotten this huge difference of core temperatures.

Maybe it's your HSF not making good contact.

Its quite possible, I didnt get to check how flat it was but it did have a pre lapped mirror finish to the bottom, so I dont know...

Try lapping your IHS and tightening the screws that hold it down.

Well, I just reseated again, and I'm getting 56c on core one and 60c on core two at load. This is at 3.9, same settings as before, but this time occt is crashing on me after 5 minutes. Maybe I need to let the AS5 cure?


I need to go out and buy lapping materials.

Okay, these temp sensors cant be right, its reported one of my cores at 29 degrees at one point. average there is a 6 degree difference, but i've seen as much as 15.


Idle it reports 32 and 41, load it reports 54 and 60. ***

I think your HSF is putting too much weight on the clamps. Put your computer on it's side and see how it works.

just what I was thinking. You want them to be equally tight if they are not near perfect when it is upright the differences in temps will be larger due to gravity.

im running one right now and you just have to bend the HR-10 to get it in the case then you can bend it back once the motherboard is screwed in
