Lapped my Q6600 and Vendetta 2 - Page 4

post #31 of 37
i beg to differ with HDT TIM application:

HDT coolers are designed so that any excess TIM oozes harmlessly into the gaps/crevices/cracks between the heatpipes. this ensures optimal TIM coverage, as only the required amount will be on the heatpipes. the pressure of mounting it will squeeze the rest into the aforementioned gaps.

If the CPU was flat to begin with, you won't see any improvement. Lapping should only be done if it's NOT flat. Razor blade/light test it.

That is a good point. Hadn't thought of that. Sort of a pressure relief valve.

That being the case then it would suggest best method is a thin line on each pipe. TIM would spread out over surface of the pipe and excess would creep up into the crevices.

That is the conclusion I am reaching. The only thing gained is loss of a very thin layer of Nickel in that case. Well that and a really cool copper shine and then end of it all

I have had 3 HDT Coolers and none passed the razor blade or or any other test I tried to check for flatness, that said the OCZ was the flattest of all the ones I have tested. But still not as flat as it could be.
With regards the CPU once again none of the CPU's I have tested for flatness were flat enough IMHO.
With regards application, I have tested a number different thermal compounds and applied the TIM in a number of ways to try and find the best and most consistent results.
I have even applied the TIM and tested on a sheet of glass to check for how well it spread, to see if there were air pockets etc.
The best most consistent method was in the link I gave earlier.
Without filling in the gaps between the copper pipes and aluminum fins first, there were small areas where the TIM did not fill leaving air pockets, leading to poorer results. These small air pockets only expanded when put under stress and the CPU got hot.
I off course I can only report on my results and this is what I have found, the best way for you to do it is try the various ways of applying the TIM and see what works best for your set up.
I think I must have done 40 - 50 applications to reach my conclusions, and as I said these are results on my system, and no two systems are the same or operate in the same conditions.

I think I will go for the suggestions of the guy with 40+ experiences

Just need to find some time to try the method you suggested.

Thanks again for all your help.

LOL.

That's priceless, friend ...

Sorry you didn't see any gains, though; my experience with the same sort of madness netted very good results.

Anyway ... thanks for the sig'able comment.
