help cooling a hot 6300

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
case Tt m9
cpu cooler scythe mine

case fans 2x120mm
the temps as high as they will go after this they just fluctuate between 55-57

here is the fan setup
front to the harddrives

rear exhaust


i currently have no side fans and my mine has no as5 (i ran out )
any ideas would be great i know 56 load will not kill it but i would be more comfortable with low 5s high 40s if its possible

A few suggestions in order of significance:

1) Lap those surfaces baby! a lapped CPU IHS and HSF will probably drop you a good few Cs

2) Get some AS5 or better yet, some Shin Itsu!

3) Don't Scythe Mines use push pins? Consider ordering a bolt through kit like those made by Thermalright - extra pressure = extra thermal compound spread/extra surface contact = nice temp drop!
4) Get yourself a nice fan for that cooler... something in the 80CFM range
5) Dremel out that rear grilling for extra air flow!

Good luck and happy OCing!
Feel free to PM me if you have any more Qs

Right on.

Also see what coretemp and more so what Realtemp say your temps are.

Are you using software to oc? Might want to walk away from that.

well its a new case am not to sure about dremaling anything just yet, as for the fan i have ordered a 120 mm fan to replace the 100mm that is currently in use and for now i but a 45cfm 92 mm in the center and ghetto modded the 100 mm to the front of the mine,the pressure mod gear can i get a link?. as for the software i don't really use it it just gives me more accurate readings, lets me see my real temps and also i can control my fans from it very well. when i find out out how to host a video i will post the vid of how loud it currently is

i normally like a more powerful exhaust behind the cooler and a less powerful fan infront of the cooler-mounted fan. works for me and helps get rid of that hot air without pooling in other parts of your case. as for a cooler. you can try looking at tuniqs or the famous TRUE. personally my e6300 stays at 38C idle and loads at high 40s sometimes low 50s. im using a zerotherm btf90 and my ambients are pretty high. as many others state. reseat, better the thermal paste, and get rid of unwanted dust between the fins of your cooler.
