Very Abnormal Temps (X2 5000+ BE) - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Hello everyone!
First off I want to say I am new to this board and this is my first post I am building my own pc and thought it best to get into the community online. I have followed this conversation and would like to ask few questions if i may, be kind as I am a true amateur

First the rig i am aiming to build (half of it in post atm
CPU- Athlon 64 x2 5000+ BE
M2N SLI Deluxe
...well the rest doesnt matter for this post i guess

okay, first question is that someone mentioned removing the IHS...what is this? I am getting artic paste (5) and intend to put the line across and attach the heatsink. This leads onto my second question. Recommended heatsink. (some of the more elaborate metal ones dont seem to have a fan on them so are they without and just use heat dispersal?). Another simple but maybe stupid question, what goes first. CPU into Mobo or CPU onto heatsink then all goes into mobo?
just so you know i intend to OC the cpu to get 3.20 GHz 1.400 V DDR2-800 16x or even maybe later on 3.30 GHz 1.450 V DDR2-733 16.5x.

You're asking far too much from the cooler than it can possibly deliver, unfortunately.
you obviously have never used this heatsink. I have it on my 6400 and i have clocked my processor up to 3.4 ghz wit it. My load temps never went above 50.

I agree with others that you should try re-seating your heatsink.

1) Its the cover on the processor that you see on the actual chip. Its silver, has the chip info on it, basically the top of the processor. IHS stands for Integrated Heat Spreader (because the actually processor is much smaller than the IHS)
2) I would recommend the Artic Freezer 64 pro or the Xigmatek HDTS1283
Freezer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2bfreezer%2b64
Xigmatek: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003

3)CPU into mobo, then heatsink onto CPU.

sorry about the double post

Freezer A64 Pro user here, like 42c on load at 3.4Ghz(34c idle)at 330FSB it's 47c on load, nothing is wrong with this cooler, reseat it and reapply the thermal paste , i use Arctic MX-2

when at stock speed, it's 25c idle 34c load

The way i apply my thermal paste is I put a ton of it on there, spread it out, lock down the heatsink, and then take it off, and anywhere where there is a spot where there isnt any thermal paste, either on the IHS or the heatsink, i put a little dot of compound in the middle , then i reseat it, lock it down, pull it off again, and repeat.

you may get a little excess over the edges, but just wipe it off with a microfiber cloth with some alcohol on it each time you take the HS off.

My temps never even dare going above 35degrees load, even at 1.45vcore

You obviously have never seen me write about my experiences with the AMD version of this heatsink. When I used one in 2006, I found it inadequate. Whether Arctic Cooling rolled out a new version of this cooler, I cannot say; all I've said all along is that according to my experience using this HSF, it didn't work well for me.

Please don't say I never used it, because I am telling you categorically that I used to. If you must say something to refute my reports on my experience with this product, never say I never used something that I'm commenting on. You can tell me your experience is different, you can say whatever else; just don't be reckless and say I never used it.

I'm sorry it didn't work well for ya..but as I posted eariler I"m using and my idle temps right now is 21C & while underload I'm around 40C - with running ORTHOS for hours I top around 54C. All this is with vcore @ 1.50v. Great cooler.
