high temperature with zalman 9700 NT

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I just bought a new heatsink for my processor.
But after I install the heatsink , the temperature goes higher than the original heatsink that came with it. ( currently 60- 68 C)

I'm using:
nvidia 750i p5n-D motherboard
Q9300 processor
some normal power supply 510W

I have 4 small fans suck in the air, 1 is at the font of casing
another one at the top of casing, two more at the side of it.
The last one at the back of casing that suck out the air.

Can another tell me what's wrong? I install the zalman heatsink according to the manual. Do I put too much thermal grease cause this problem?

How much thermal grease did you put?
Did you put the entire bottle?

I would change those two blue fans on the vertical side to intake, and turn the top fan too exhaust, but that is not what is screwing up the temps.

I just put 1/4 of it.
And I also tried to put the whole CPU full of thermal grease. The temperature still the same.

could be the cause of too much thermal compound. or heatsink not posititioned right.

you only need a tiny drop in the middle. take heatsink off clean cpu and heatsink with rubbing alcohol and do the process over. carefully.

you need to put as little of that compound on as possible. you also should have 2 of those fans as intake fans. if i read it right, you have all your fans in exhaust, right? you need to have intake fans, so you get cold air into the case. hence, getting good air flow.

Well.. I do as the flash video.
My house don't have alcohol, can I use vodka to clean the CPU?

Try a different software than the one your using. I dont know of one any good ones, I usually just check the BIOS.
