Xigmatek wth?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok well I got my Xigmatek HDTS1283 and when I applied the paste, I used a ruler to force the paste in the gab between the heat pipes and I noticed that one pipe was indented and had a lot of paste stuck in it. (i put the flat part of the ruler across the base and forcefully pressed the paste between the pipes so it was flat)

Theres like a pond look on the heat pipe with all the paste in there. Is this effecting my temps? I have a Scythe Ultra Kaze 133CFM fan on it right now with my quad at 3.6 @1.44v and im getting a temp of 56C idle and a core temp of 38-38-36-35 or something like that. And ideas to what I should do?

Im kinda disappointed as i got the same temps with my Kingwin 92mm DHP.... Kinda LAME!

56 idle is really high, but how are you measuring it? the 36 etc numbers seem to be much closer to what you might actually be getting. Also, generally too much paste is a bad thing, so if you have a puddle of it that probably won't help temps.

Also, if you have an indented pipe that doesn't sound good at all. I'd just return it if you can.

BTW, I'm typing while listening to Dragonforce's "Through the Fires and the Flames" and it's hgurting my typing because I'm trying to go way too insanely fast (like the guitar solos in the song)

haha sick, thanks for responding.
I'm using uGuru (came with the board and gives same reading as BIOS) to get the 56 and using coretemp to get the temp of the cores.

I already emailed Xigmatek also

Are you sure you didn't accidentally dent it when you were crudely pushing TIM in?
Anyways, I'd RMA it if I were you.

Yeah im sure, maybe when I crushed the HSF onto my CPU to spread it LOL.

Also, why does it seem like when I add more TIM, my CPU get cooler?

The best way to apply paste to the HDT cooler in my experience is to put very thin lines of TIM along the heatpipes. Try this and see what your temps are like.

I know that. But I'm just just giving him advice for applying TIM to HDT coolers in general.

uGuru and bios are notorious for reporting incorrect cpu temps on our board.....coretemp or hwmonitor will give you accurate temps What BIOS version do you have?
