TRUE and Temps... - Page 2

post #11 of 35
The E4300's IHS isn't soldered to the die, so heat transfer isn't as efficient when compared to higher end Core2 procs. Try asking other TRUE owners in your area since temps aren't comparable across different locations. I got ~55C+ at load with my previous X2 at 3Ghz.

The fan you're using doesn't have any static pressure. It isn't blowing enough air through the fins of the TRUE.

TRUE with 2xS-FLEX SFF21G, idle 20C, load 62C (prime small FFT), room temp 22

TRUE with 1xDFS122512L, idle 31C, load 73C (prime small FFT), room temp 22

Send it back adn tell them it's rubbish. I would've done with mine but I damaged it slightly in the process.

Failing that keep reseating it and don't bother buying new thermal paste. The one that comes with it is actually fairly good.

I totally agree with you about lapping it. You shouldn't have to lap a cooler to get the stated performace out of it. It should perform well, and then even better once lapped. Not only perform well once lapped.

Also try the penny method.

Put a penny under the retaining bracket to increase torque on the TRUE. you should have noticed that you can easily rotate the TRUE with the stock mounting.

by putting a penny under the bracket, it increases the resistance and decreases temps.

Wow, that's a great idea! I wish the TT120 didn't have a little notch in the middle of the copper heatsink.

You can always try and find a pure copper coin and put it inbetween the CPU and HSF. Just make sure it's completely flat on both sides and covers the entire IHS.

Pennies may be too brittle/malleable, though. They tend to dent from the pressure. If you can get ahold of a strong washer, use that instead.

As a previous poster said, the fan that you are using may not have enough static pressure. Static pressure is the ability for a fan to move air through tight places, and since the TRUE has a very dense fin structure, you need a fan with a lot of static pressure.

When you lapped, did you make a mirror finish of copper, or the aluminum? Basically, did you lap it until it was a flat, copper surface, or did you lap until it was just shiny. My first time lapping I just sanded until the IHS and HSF were simply just a smooth aluminum surface, I didn't go far enough.

The day I believe that... Funny how you expect us to believe one fan in a push-pull configuration takes 10C off your idle temps.

piff paff.... first of all that zalman grease isnt better grease you made it worse.
Second..... when i read your first post...
you have a crappy crappy 50 CFM fan on their.... Did you change that crap ??
You added another crappy fan???... added worse off TIM.... and your wanting your performance to get better ???

Take some of the advice from these posts....

If you lapped it .... show us some pics... on how you did it, so we can determine if you did it correctly or not.

Hope you understand all this so you can get your stuff fixed....
