Very Disappointed on TRUE Black

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just installed the TRUE Black. I run prime95 about half hour and temp ran up to 63c 61c 53c 54c, then I went to take a shower. After shower I went back to check and my comp freeze. Coretemp show core 1 @ 70c. SO I gotta manully restart my comp. Room temp about 75F. Idle temp is 46c 44c 39c 39c. Its running @ 1600x8 3.2GHz. Is this temp bad.

I might set the HS not correct, cuz I moved it a little when it was on top of the CPU with AS5. I also mount Fan filters on the intakes and side window. All fans are running medium.

I heard that the TRUE Black is made of Nickel not copper. Copper really cool better than Nickel? Why would Thermalright use Nickel?

The bottom of the heatsinks are usually nickel plated to the best of my knowledge. A lot of TRUE's need to be lapped so the bottom is flat + you sand away the layer of nickel.

Those temps are definitely too high for a TRUE. Yeah a reseat would be best. They don't use nickel it's just black nickel plated. Copper does conduct heat better than nickel.

All the TRUE's are made of nickel, except the new TRUE Copper edition. Thermalright uses Nickel because of the fact that copper is so damn expensive. If your getting those temps at 1.36v then you need to lap your TRUE/reseat/use less AS5.

my suggestion : remove the HS, and re-apply AS5 per their official instruction on their website. if the same prob persists, i'll blame it on that the TRUEs come with uneven base and needs to be lapped....

check the fans see if they are actually spinning, specially the one on the HS.

TRUE = copper and aluminum plated with nickel plate.
They are also usually warped and must be checked and lapped if necessary

You must have seated it wrong, and like Azazel has said many TRUE's have to be lapped to get optimal contact with the CPU IHS.

Edit: Wow I basically just re-posted what everyone else has posted five times already. Go me.

If that's actually a 1600MHz system clock I've found your temperatures right there.
