Q6600 and xigmatek HDT-S1283

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a lapped Q6600 and a sweet xigmatek S1283. I installed the HSF and it rests, kind of pushes on my NB. Is this going to affect my temperatures because there is some pressure pushing the HSF off the processor? It's not much, maybe bending one of the fins, but it's still pressing on the NB.

I am overclocked to 3.2GHz (400 x 8) and my idles are 38 38 32 32
Load temps are high 40's at most.

Should I rotate my HSF or is it fine?

Thanks

Awesome dude! Glad to hear you saw such nice improvements! What are your ambient temps though? It might be just because of summer but those idles seem a tad high... Also, a bent fin won't lower temps, but if the NB is pushing the HSF up off the CPU's IHS ever so slightly, temps will rocket up a good bit... I would also suggest purchasing a bolt through kit or making one yourself... pushpins aren't all that trust worthy for CPU HSFs and bolt through will give extra pressure = extra cooling

Also, did you make sure to install it like so? The regular line or dot TIM application with HDT HSFs kills the temps (not enough spread on the thermal paste)

Ambients are pretty low. I am in my basement where it's cooler. I put TIM on the heat pipes on the HSF then I installed it. I did a line down each one, a thin one. But yeah, my temps really went down, especially load temps. Before they were 60's during testing, now they're mid 40's

I have the bolt through kit and it made installing it way easier. I have similar idle temps as you, but my load temps are outrageous. However, I have the same temps through all cores within 1-2 C so it's got even pressure.

Heres the bolt through kit.

How should I install the paste on these things? I just did the normal line.
