Freezer 7 Pro on E6750 raising temps?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I purchased an Arctic Freezer Pro 7 from newegg last September but due to it not fitting b/c of the NM on my mobo (p5n-e sli) I just let it sit in the box.

Well, a couple days ago I decided I wasn't going to throw $30 away so I clipped the bottom corner of the heatsink (not very much at all, but not very clean either ). I removed the stock fan/heatsink and quickly cleaned the thermal paste off of the AFPro7. I then hastily cleaned the heatspreader on my processor where the heatsink comes in contact with a paper towel. I applied Arctic Silver 5 pretty liberally and attempted to neatly push the pushpins down without smearing the thermal paste everywhere... now I'm noticing (with every temp monitoring program that exists) an idle proc temp of 40 degrees Celsius with the highest (checked all the logs) temp being 54 degrees Celsius. It's about 75 degrees in my room (a little lower at times).

In summation, I could have done a few things really wrong, way too much thermal paste, not cleaning the heatsink or proc heatspreader well enough, something with the pushpins?, etc... but I was curious if my temps seem okay or if I possibly just needed to give the Arctic Silver more time to cure... they say 200 hours but is it going to change much if I give it a few more days (it's been almost 2 days). Thanks!

The temp difference after the 200 hours is <2-3°C.
You only need a thin line of AS5, and need a good, clean surface on both the CPU and HSF.
Try removing and cleaning everything and re-installing it correctly.

unlees your case has really poor air flow you should be getting mid 30s.

the line only needs to be abot two thirds the size of that ^^^ tbh, do it so it starts just above the writing an end just bellow.

tbh it is too soon to call it cued but also i would of left the paste on the base of the freezer pro as their mx range is about the same as as5 anyway.

did you clean the mx paste off the heatsink before fitting, or just the old stock intel stuff of the proc?
