TC Grease 0098 Test Results - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Ok I got my TC grease 0098 today in the mail. So, as promised, here are my results.

Ambient temperature ~ 23c

Arctic Silver 5 - Cure time 30 days

Cores at Idle 35-35-32-32
Cores at Load 58-57-55-55

TC Grease 0098 - Cure time 1 hour

Cores at Idle 35-35-32-32
Cores at Load 56-57-54-54


Q6600 G0 Batch# L738A999 VID: 1.2500
Lapped TRUE 120 + 2x Ultra Kaze 3000rpm + washer mod
Overclocked at 3.4ghz, Closed Case for 24/7 use

Stress program used - OCCT 3.0
Temp program used - Everest Ultimate Edition

I booted the computer, let OCCT run for 30 minutes, then let the computer idle for 30 minutes. In conclusion, the results are roughly the same, temperature changes were negligible, 1c at best. I had to wait 2 days for the AS5 to cure, maybe I should wait for this to cure as well, then retake temperatures. At least the temps didn't get worse.

Ok here is my initial test. I tried it out on my sig rig. I'm running the E8600 @4.4GHz with high voltage. I have pictures of my previous compound as well. (AS5) The TC grease 0098 did just as well with the Zalman 9700 as the AS5. Keep in mind that the ambient temp was 76F.

Here is the AS5 at idle.




Here is the AS5 at full load. This was at 7 minutes.




Here is the TC grease 0098 at idle.




Here is the TC grease 0098 at load. This was at 10 minutes.

[/

As you can see, the results were almost identical.

Heya Spacey!

I got my syringe last Friday. I spent this past weekend fighting to get a RAID array setup on this rig, so I really haven't had a chance to establish a baseline with the AS5 that's currently in use. I also have an issue with the application of TIM as this is my first experience with a XIGMATEK 1283 & I do believe I kind of f'ed up because one of the cores is running about 10C hotter than the other three according to CoreTemp anyways.

I still have drivers to install & then get the rig set up to run BOINC to stress the cores (my preferred method ).

After all that is done, I will apply this TIM and post my results.

I have also emailed David in regards to the Xigmatek HS to maybe include a notation in future releases of the application instructions as I'll have to smear it over the pipes first, then apply to the middle of the HS as the instructions state.

Also to note mnishimura00, according to the manufacturer's instructions, that is far too much material that you've used & it is to be applied to the middle of the heat sink rather than the CPU. It states to use 0.25g, which I'd say is approximately 0.1ml of the syringe(would love clarification from David though). Granted, those of us that have been doing this for a while will apply the TIM in the same quantity and method you used & allow the excess to flow where it wishes. I think it would only be fair to follow the manufacturer's suggestion to get an actual depiction of how well their product works or doesn't work. I'm only mentioning it to be fair. Maybe trying their method after getting a baseline with your method would be a good measure as well

It's all good Indi. We are still within the "reasonable time" so no worries. Good point made about the application and testing. Also, if anyone else is using a Xiggy or other HDT cooler, just use common sense, and apply the paste accordingly.

If anyone has any questions or comments for David here is his e-mail:

ddalesandro@tim-consultants.com

He is a super nice guy, so don't be afraid to shoot him a line

Okay, as promised, I finally was able to get some time to get her rolling for some results. Since this was my first experience with the Xigmatek 1283, I think I really goofed on the AS5 application. lol



AS5 Results:
Ambient: 19C
Idle: 27-28-38-32
Load: 41-29-38-32

Or maybe not *sigh* I wonder if I have a weird IHS... It's been running for 5 hours at 100% now.
TC Grease 0098 Results:
Ambient: 20C
Idle: 26-28-38-32
Load: 41-30-38-32

I'll let her go for the rest of the day & check it again in the morning.
