Meh I just might need to reseat it with some Thermal Paste. But I dont have a job yet XD

You guys have a tiny bit of AS5 laying around?

I get low 30's with my tuniq tower 120 and my e6400 at 3200 mhz (at idle) in the 40's at load

I call total and complete BS on that quote. First, there is NO cooler that can maintain only a 4C difference between idle and load. 20C difference already would be really good. Second, I see no indication that this is the CNPS9500... for all I know, this could be a watercooling kit...

The CNPS9500 is a mediocre cooler (hence that the CNPS 9700 was put on the market). It's ok with stock speeds and mild overclocks, but falls short when you seriously overclock. The Arctic you have simply is better.

I want to overclock more with my arctic, but at 1.35 it just gets to hot for comfort. talking around 60-65C load.

Do you know any good HSF that doesn't require me lapping it? Cause that just makes me to nervous to lap stuff.

don't worry about anything. 50C with that CPU is a REALLY good load temp. that thing can handle a lot more. I would not worry about a thing unless you hit 60C.. and even then you still have headroom according to Intel (72C is the limit)

Bump in case you didn't see this

I think a reseat might help you. Also, you should look at the airflow in your case. E6750's aren't generally that hot of a chip... what is the fan set up of your case?

are those 120mm or 80mm? or a combination thereof? To me, that sounds like too many fans, which disrupt a nice airflow in the case...

I'd play around with the fan set up and see what happens. I never believed in side intake (I have a classic 120mm intake in the front and 120mm exhaust in the back...and that's it, and my temps are good for both CPU and GPU in that rig... 57C for an E6750 that runs at 3.76GHz @1.5V while folding 24/7 in Linux. The cooler is a Tuniq Tower, and the fan is turned down to about 40%).

I'd go back to the basics (assuming the front intake and back exhaust are good 120mm fans), and see what happens. Also, when you installed the heatsink, what TIM did you use, and how much?

They are all 120mm. The front intake on a cm 690 doesn't do crap cause of the HD shell in the way. The rear fan has a pretty good amount of airflow. The side fans might be cheap http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103022.

The heatsink had preapplied TIM. Im thinking I accidentally moved it while mounting it. Would moving it a bit or doing anything to it right after it is put down, will that cause a bad thermal paste transfer?
