Operation: TRUE Killa aka XIGMATEK HDT S1283 - Page 9

post #81 of 117
Well I decided to go the lazy/dangerous route and just push the pins back in... I then ended up bumping one pin loose again.... but there was no obvious sign of damage, no paste leaking out, or anything like that.

After 20 minutes of P95 I'm at 41c on stock (3 ghz) settings on the E8400. Is that a good temp, or did I botch it?

That's with the stock fan running at 900 rpm... it doesn't get hot enough to go faster.

Idle is 32.

Forgot to mention that's RealTemp. SmartGuardian reports like 10c lower.

I just looked through all 9 pages and thanks for the pics! I currently have a ZeroTherm Nirvana and it's a pretty nice cooler, but I'm not a huge fan of the fan (no pun intended...) It's just too loud so I've been looking at different coolers. The problem being two fold. First, I don't really want to replace the NB heatsink and second, I use all 4 RAM DIMMS so I don't want to block them, but this cooler looks like it'll do everything I want.

The stock fan will fit mounted horizontally (facing the top) with your board, that's my setup. It also won't block the ram slots.

Advice to anyone considering this sink: get a bolt kit. I should've waited. These push pins are absolutely pathetic. I was opening my case, and the wire for the side fan gently pulled against a wire that went across the heatsink, and the whole thing fell off. So I dismounted the fan and bolted it back in, and when I was remounting the fan, it fell off again.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I don't see how. The pins lock into positions and it'll hold still, but any pressure, even a light bump, will knock the damn thing out.

Now my temps are up 12 degrees. Awesome.

It sounds like you're mounting it incorrectly. Make sure you turn the pins clockwise as much as possible. Then you just push them until you hear a click.

This heatsink wont block any DIMMS on your DFI.

Here's a pic.

The manual says to turn them clockwise to remove them... and there's an arrow which points counterclockwise... so I've been mounting them in the counterclockwise position.

So maybe I have been doing it incorrectly. But the manual seems to be wrong if that's the case.

I did have 41c load realtemps with p95 blend when I first installed it, so I seemed to have done it right the first time.

Oh, the 12c climb in temps I mentioned - it was because I forgot to plug the fan back in. Oops.

I actually tried doing it the way that was suggested in the manual but it never worked for me. Try turning them clockwise, then pushing them in. I think you'll find that it works much better. You also get a satisfying click sound when they lock in.

Just got my HDT-S1283 yesterday and I love it! It beats my old Scythe Mugen by over 5 C and it's less than half the size of the Mugen! No more slicing of my fingers while working in my case!

I've now been able to get up to 3.6GHz with my E6600 as well with a peak temp of 58 C. Previously, with my Mugen my temps would go over the Intel maximum temp of 60.1 C. I'm going to see if I can reach 3.8GHz now.

Also, if you plan on getting the HDT-S1283, I strongly recommend getting the Thermalright bolt-thru kit. It works wonders!

Ok, so I'm remounting the heatsink with the bolt through kit.

How do you get the pushpins out of the bracket they're mounted to? Just brute force it or what?
