With the Xigmatek you will probably be able to get 3.6 24/7...Just make sure you use a good thermal interface material (TIM) such as MX-2 (Non-Conductive) or AS5 (Conductive, Silver based).

I can say from experience, the xigmatek is an amazing HSF. I have had the ACF7Pro and it was decent, but this S1283 is absolutely amazing. my OC'd quad idles at 34 34 27 27

and loads don't go above low 40's

It's amazing price to performance ratio is why I bought it. Performs as well as/barely lower than a TRUE/tuniq

Wow, nice temps. Are you using the stock fan (is there a stock fan? )
post #15 of 24
Yeah it comes with a fan that's really quiet and rubber connectors so there is zero vibration.

Thanks

I should have a lot of MX-2 left over from this build. You think it goes bad or will it be fine to use from 6 months ago?

Na it shouldn't go bad if it's sealed. If you left it out in the open, I don't know for sure.

@ SerenityKill3r - Glad I could help

it should be ok as long as the cap was securely on...I've used 4 year old TIM before, and it worked great

Nbrider, I've heard of individuals putting their AS5 in the refrigerator. I've always kept mine in room temperature. I have a tube that is over 3 years old and I still use to this day. Not sure if the same applies for MX-2.

Hope that helps
