The temp dropped @5 degrees but the fan application directly on the NB part of the heatsink made the most difference (from @75C down to 55-56C idle and @61 C max after an hour of gameplay. Previous to this it was @75C idle 86C max). I think these NBs run hot.

So the NB HS is mounted with screws? I am wanting to try this out this weekend but I wasn't sure if the gum is what they were using to hold it in place.

That's what I hate about prime. I have to leave it running when I'm not able to monitor my pc. I'm not about to do that given the fact I run phase mostly. Anything could go wrong during that period and I would have no way to correct/stop it. The amount of condensation that would be created if the PC shut down and didn't restart, whilst the phase running would be overwhelming. Talking about puddle formation.

This is a reason I run Linx as it gives a very high heat load, a 5 to 10 run pass takes relatively little time, and nothing I've ever done has ever crashed when it completes those tests. I could run prime but I'm not about to watch my pc load for hours on end while I would rather prefer to be gaming or benching.

Dont forget AS5 has a recomended burn in time of 200 hours,so you should see even lower temps after it has cured.

Are those idles with no additional fans over the Northbridge?

I switched that pink crap (god it was hard to get off) out for some thermal grease, but my temps are still stuck around 55. Because of how much of a pain it is to remove the mobo and attempt reseating/tightening, I haven't been able to make adjustments to see if it's my fault though. If you're getting those temps on stock though, then I suspect I need to re-evaluate my TIM replacement job. Perhaps I didn't tighten the screws enough? (went until the screwdriver would slip out of the screws without me applying more pressure for friction.) Ah, there was also evidence of some smears of pink crap that I couldn't get off with rubbing alcohol. I suspect another attempt might do it though.

skline,

Are you saying that one could install a more effient thermal pad for the MVR's?

What is on there and what would you suggest?

Would thermal paste be a bad idea? I have a S939 Asus A8N32 Sli Deluxe. I lapped the Silver MVR Heatsink after taking the thermal pad off and then reinstalled it with AS5 and it seemed like the HS was warmer than before, when it had the thermal pad on... My thinking was that it was transferring more heat than before? Doesn't make sense or do you think that it may just been getting hotter altogether?

Hey Mastiffman, sorry to bump in but that OCZ SSD you got hooked up how is the performance? I got a Corsair 32GB in yesterday and just patiently waiting for my order with my board and stuff. Just really wanting to know how good the performance is over a WD Caviar.
