ok i think I finally got my heatsink on the best that I could.
VCore 1.28 under load
CPU speed 4052

after 10 min on prime 95 blend test my temps seem to be bouncing around from 48-52.. Max temp so far has been 54. I think thats pretty good temp for 4ghz. My room has drooped down about 3-4F also so that's prob. helping me. Tomorrow is suppose to be really hot, most likely I won't see temps much higher than that for the rest of the summer so I'll do some testing then.

For the e8400 my goal is to keep it under 57C max. I think that should be a safe temp for it.

I don't know if i'm doing something wrong yet on the true or not, but my goal was 4ghz with it so as long as i can keep my temps under 57C max(maybe 55C max...) then i'll be very pleased with it

Hint, Edit post unless someone else posts. On most forums its rude to double/triple post etc and to be completely honest its friggin annoying

Ok i'll just edit this post until someone asks me something. I'm really looking for suggestions on how to apply the thermal grease(as5).

I reapplied the grease again, this time i spread it across the hs using an old credit card (problem being i couldn't find the post where someone demenstrated how to do this, i tried to get it as thin as possible w/o scrapping it off but it still felt thick to me... then i applied a small dot in the middle of the cpu.

I decided to go ahead and do a pressure mod also, using a penny. It's still very easy to turn, maybe easier than w/o the penny.

Doing this resulted in better temps.. one core dropped down to 32-33C at idle, the other stayed at 37(this core has never dropped below 37)

five minutes into prime blend tests my temps are 47-48.. however every now and then it will jump to 51-53

This is with vcore 1.264 under load.

So I think my problem is applying as5, or my e8400 just runs hot

EDIT*****
30 min of prime

One member said I should be happy with these temps but others say no. If others think I can do better I'll reapply again, next time i'm going to try to apply about a BB size to the cpu and spread it using finger in a plastic bag. I think I recall some people using 2 pennies instead of 1. Maybe I shoudl use 2?

EDIT #2*****
Ok I looked at the post for using the mechanicla pencil tip.. applied a line and have got slightly better temps. Load temps are still at 53 but hasn't hit 54 in 20 minutes. My ambient is now 77F, i expect 78-79 max ambient. I also moved my pc a little farther away from the vent than it will normally sit to get a worse case situation. I used up all my as5 now, i've reseated prob 30+ times now counting my vendetta 2 heat problems. I'll pick up some more at work tonight and then remove it again to see where paste is / isn't. and if it looks to heavy or not.

Will update after I get off work and reseat. Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Here is what I've tried
-Small dot
-Large dot
-medium dot
-medium dot with very small dot on the corners
-using credit card to spread grease on the TRUE
-using a small line with a pencil tip


What has worked the best
Medium dot with very small dots on the corners
Using credit card to spread on the TRUE
small line with a pencil tip.

I think the next thing i will try is a slightly smaller line and very small dots on the corners

3 dots works best for me, small top and bottom slighlty bigger in mddle.

tbh for that vcore your temps look high but air cooling is all about ambient so....i only get temps like that from more than 1.35v with mine but then again thats @4ghz for me too.

Yeah I wasn't expecting to run into temp problems with the cpu, was expecting to hit the vcore limit first, but thanks for the suggestion I will also try that
