disappointed with cpu temps !!! - Page 2

Yupp, too much thermal grease would definitely yield higher temperatures... for the Quads, you want to apply it like this:



So just a small strip in the middle running parallel to the long side of the motherboard. Some folks also go for just a small dab right smack in the middle, but i personally have gotten better results with the above procedure

lol nice one
I will post findings tomorrow ...........many thanks everyone

rad is about and inched deep and has 3 yateloon fans running at 2200rpm 85-90cfm

no kinks no rightangle bends smooth curves every where maybe a foot of pipe could go from the system but i can't see that much having much effect .

also the feser one is just like water quite light .

but I have to admit I didn't clean out the rad ,

slapped hands alround

lets hope it is too much thermal past LOL

I have a Q6600 at 3.3Ghz that is idling 35C and loading 47/48C with an ambient of 25C (it's hot in the Netherlands at the moment). And next time read up on how to fit a CPU+Cooler

EDIT: 46 load if I turn up a fan

ok applied a lot less goop this time ,

as start and that dropped temps from 61 max to 57-58 ambient is about 20c

(MasterFire I have a drop in temps due to altitude compared to you LOL )

so a 3 to 4c drop ( slightly higher ambient)
( got take the dragon out for a pizza now but left occt running to see what she maxes out at )

I may try a little less ac5 as I always err on the side of caution

but idle was about 31c which is good for 1.42vcore

is that still high do we think though ?

also does anybody know if you need to lap a d-tek V2 ?
as it looks pretty flat and mirror finish to start with ?

cpu is not lapped by the way

Neither my Fuzion v2 or my CPU are lapped and I have good temps but I plan on lapping my CPU next weekend just cuz I wanna go extreme OC .

Most blocks come with a real good finish, and even better they are nice and flat..

When I put my TIM on I spread it on the IHS with a razor blade, really work it from side to side and front to back, make a see through layer, you just want it on really thin...Do the same to your block...Then I just put a little dot in the center...

With a quad you might be better off with a line...Less is more with TIM...

HI all

I have another confession to make now ,
ambient temps were actually about 23-25c

the crappy temp gauge I have in my study (in the loft ) was way off

so I took my altimeter/barometer I use for mountaineering up let it settle for 2 hours while the m/c was running prime blend

and it was recording 24.5 while the old one was at 16-18c

so now I am running a q6700 at 58-60c with 1.425vcore 100% load at 24c ambient !!!
idles around 32c


so is that more like the temps I should be seeing for water cooling

or should they be like another 5-10c lower ?


is that sort
