Another update on my Lidless E5200 adventure.
Running it at 10X333 1.19V now
Scythe Mugen + slipstream 1200 RPM mounted on naked core
The same combo on my E8400 (lapped) performed +1-2Â°c
One thing i like is that it idles really low ! 24-25Â°c (core sensor, stuck at 23 and 31Â°c).
I think a better heatsink would lower my max load temps a bit. I've played TF2 for 3 hours and just some normal surfing and office-work and the max temps are 31/32Â°c. Only when i start prime or linpack the temperatures rise. I guess it's because the base of my infinity can't handle the heat/surface (really small core).
I'm thinking about a copper plate bolted to my Xigmatek 1283, like a coldplate used in tec-setups. Lets hope i can find someone who can machine it for me!
I heard a true performed good well with a lidless cpu but i already have 2 +- highend heatsinks so it'd be a bit stupid to buy another one
