Thanks
i have an r4 theere, i just ...put it there...so it rests on the bottom of of the 5.25 drive bays
you can secure it either with double sided tape
or if your CD drive is on the second slot from the top, the fan should squeeze in there nicely

Another idea, how much AS5 did you use and did you spread it out or just put "the bead" down on it? Have you ever used MX-3? How about your top "blow hole" fan, is it running 100% too? Before I set the fans on Mindys to 100% the top fan ran slow and she was running 33c on idle, now it's 26c. One of these folks knows how to apply 17V to the fan, it'll run really fast that way.

Oh, what case does she have? Ooooh, just got another flash, are you running anything in the backround? When I'm surfing I have folding going on and that makes the proc run at 40c. Also, you do know it's hotter when O/C'ed right? Still should'nt be that hot.

My V8 is hooked up to the MoBo, but I havent tried disabling the BIOS PWM controls yet, I will definitely try that. As far as the AS5, I put 2 small lines. One across the top and one across the bottom and let the heatsink spread it. The fan on the top is running, Im assuming, at 100% its hooked up to a molex connector.

Question: on the V8, are you supposed to be able to tighten the thing down as tight as you want? On mine, if I tighten it too much it kinda loosen back a notch (if that makes any sense). Im assuming that is a safety thing to ensure that people dont over tighten the bracket and risk breaking the MoBo.

I get about 35c on the core with speedstep on downclocked to 2.2 ghz so dont worry. The i7 is a whole different deal as far as temps. Most people have load temps of 80c oc to 3.6-4ghz. Anything other than an i7 and ya i would freak.
Yeah those temps are from core temp. My thing is that my speeds are stock. I have never over clocked this thing yet because I want to ensure I get my temps as low as possible before I do. I could understand these temps if I overclocked but that just isnt the case.

I know that these questions get tiresome, and I'm sorry if I annoy anyone by asking these questions again. Its just that I know there is something wrong and I just cant figure it out. BTW if anyone recalls any of my numerous other posts about this. My temps at one time were about 29C idle/ web surfing before I took the case apart to hide my cables better and add some fans. They only shot up after I reassembled everything. THATS why Im so obsessed about it, lol.

Thanks again guys!

you can just screw it into the drive cover plates I have since took the middle one out for better airflow.

Where is the logic in that?
The H50 gets the same temps as the mega and the mega is HUGE
The VenX is smaller and gets better temps than all of them.

I would like to try the VenX cooler but until they come up with a better way to mount them like the mega did on AMD I'll just wait. I some times feel its a curse having AMD over intel, but the price is right!

There was a magnitude 8.8 quake in Chile and the tsunami is said to hit Hawaii in 2 and a half hours....pretty crazy. I'll be fine but I never really thought I'd live to experience one. I'm sure it's just overhyped and will be nothing...but I guess I'll see later.

Yes its a safety feature, but you can use washers to space it out a bit so it tightens a bit more. The cpu breaks first lol so keep that in mind.

Have you tried reseating the heatsink? Also the AS5 instructions say to appy the TIM in a line down the center corresponding to the cores.
