Stock core temps - mid 40's? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Hey are you posting again? or are you still down?

As for the paste you can spread it out, but if you get any air pockets trapped then you will be in a real bad place, so thats why they do the line method. I have tried both and seen no difference in temps.

And the worst part is im not dry starting this, im install/uninstalling which adds to the frustration.. but next reapply will happen outside the case.. reason being, my lian li case and zalman 9700 dont like each other, the near side screw for the bracket is unaccessible when installed into the case.
Oh man I feel for you! I have the PC-V2100 and had the same problem You have to take out the whole mobo just to get to that other screw on the 9700...extremely frustrating, believe me I've spent the last few days doing exactly what you've been doing so in the end I put the Reserator back in action

Oh man its brutal uninstalling this mobo everytime plus the 9700 touches the case divider when installed in the case.. im wondering if it is actually tilting it enough to not post (but i did screw it on tight as hell and it seemed pretty solid), and no it still will not post. I mean my first temps idling at 45c is rediculous at stock speeds (lets think to my future overclocking and at max load, id be looking at 70c+) so this process is much needed but i think my next step is to spread it myself to ensure 100% surface coverage.. im thinking about spreading it like a smaller square than the actual cpu size but VERY thin.. this a good idea? Cuz as im seeing now, the line didnt work.

Go with what Zalman recommend. They recommend a very thin application across the whole surface of the cpu.

I read a few reviews on the 9700 and the majority applied the paste that came with it in the the way the instructions said.

To be honest I just fon't think the 9700 cuts it as a high end cooler, well especially not for quads. When I hooked up the Reserator XT last night my temps dropped from 44 idle to 34 idle and a smiliar drop with the load temps too

Im really confused as hell. Some forums tell you to never spread thermal paste while others tell you to spread it throughout the surface but a VERY thin layer.. i did not spread it on this reapply of the thermal paste and it wont start up. What to do?

TIM application has nothing to do with your no post issue, sounds like a grounding issue.
Have you cleared cmos, as suggested earlier?
Try reseating your ram, double check all standoff placements, make sure none are in the wrong location.
Also make sure there are no contaminants on the contact side of the proc.

I have a 9700 on my folding rig, does quite well, 1.42v and loads in the low 60's using the line method
Great airflow is a must with the 9700.

So the core temps were reaching 55c at full load with the pc-v1200b because my zalman 9700 was just brushing the bottom case panel so ive picked up a new case, Lian-Li PC-A70b and my temps are beautiful now. 33c idle and 37c at full load paired with my new Ultra X2 550w PSU, my system works mint. Heres some picks of the problem and the new setup! Thanks!
