IC Diamond 7 vs Shin Etsu X23-7762

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I got some free IC Diamond 7 TIM from the nice people at Innovation Cooling LLC and posted my test results in their thread. But i got some conflicting results. SO in order for me to be able to draw a conclusion, i'll have to do some more tests.

--------Test Conditions---------
+++++++++++++++++++++++++


HSF: ZEROTherm Zen FZ120
Fan: Low Speed Yate Loon 100% on HSF, exhaust fans constant and same speed each test.
Curing Time: X23- Couple weeks, ICD7- 4 hours w/ 1 hour cool down.
Testing: Prime95 1 Hour, HW Monitor for max temps (the correspond exactly with CoreTemp)
Cleaning Application: ArctiClean.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++
---------Conclusion-------------
+++++++++++++++++++++++++


Shin Etsu is the better TIM from my results. It produces lower idle temps with lower load temps. even though the DeltaTemp for ICD7 is lower.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++
--------------------------------
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Testing Procedure
  • I will takes pictures of the amount of TIM applied, then after each test, i will take pic of the surface spread of each TIM.
  • I will test both with 100% HSF running and with no HSF running, but the exhaust fans will stay the same speed.
  • I will let the TIM cure either over night or for 9 hours with prime95 (depends on the day as i have school)
  • I will use HWMonitor to record max temps (the readings with it correlate exactly with CoreTemp)
  • I will load for 1 hour prior to reading temps for stabilization.
  • I will clean with ArctiClean.
  • I will conduct this test 5 times.
