it looks like something other than distilled water was run through those barbs.

distilled a very small amount of antifreeze and some PT nuke. Thats it.

Lo,

First of all, I know there have been several posts on the issue I am about to mention and I do apologise for bringing it up again but I really don't know wot to do.

Under load [playing Mafia II DEMO is an excellent example] my NB temp easily reaches 79-80C according to Everest. This is more than acceptable I'm afraid. I cannot use a fan that would blow towards the NB cos I've got a NOCTUA NH-D14 with two Ultra Kazes and there's no way tucking another fan there. I've got a Thermaltake Element V PC chassis so air-flow should not be a problem. I have been reading through threads and have come to the conclusion that Everest might not be the best monitoring app to use. Several ppl suggested AoD instead. Is that any more reliable? I am asking it since AoD, in my case, shows false CPUNB vcore, false memory vcore etc. To be honest, AoD seems to be a bit of a mess. True, TIMP2 (which allegedly shows the chipset temp) is approx 20C lower than in Everest. While Everest shows 78C under load, AoD shows 55-57C.
Well, if Everest is right and the NB does hit 80C then wot can I do in order to improve the NB temp? I know reapplying thermal paste is an option but I know people who did so and that did not make much of a difference. At this point I am stuck. I do not rly know wot to think or do. I have MX2 and NOCTUA NT-H1 thermal pastes on hand so that's not a problem. Wot worries me a lot is disassembling the chipset-mosfet heatsink as I have never tried that and I am afraid I might harm the NB chip or sg else. Other problems are that I don't really know how much thermal paste I should apply and how to spread it on the nb and mosfets.

Sorry for the stupid questions but the last thing I want to do is harm the NB or mess sg up.

All answers are greatly appreciated!

Hey on the res, just get some "Locktite" brand dual compound apoxy. That stuff is Tough as nails. I used it to reapir a small leak in an Alluminum Oxide Rad. Worked great! You just have to make sure that the surfaces being bonded to are roughened up a bit with some sand paper and then wiped off. Then you'll be good to go after 24hours (fully cured) 5 minute bonding time though! Stuffs the Dogs howl!

This is kinda funny as I just had to redo it myself. I originally used AS5 and just last night noticed that everest(best IMHO) was reading 88 under load. I can tell you it is very easy to do and hard to mess up. What I would recommend tho would be to use a thermal pad. For one you dont have to worry about using too much and you dont have to worry about reapplying. I also tell you that before I did it this time I was seeing idle of 83 and now have an idle of 66

how to

Decided to use my mega till I can afford to get a real res, all new barbs and a 655.

Thanks as always tho

Yeah Loctite epoxy is pretty hardcore. Some of the threadlocker I use at work bonds so hardcore that the parts have to be heated with a torch in order to come apart.

On a side note, whatever you're applying the Epoxy to, or pretty much any other bonding agent, the surfaces that you're applying it to must be free of any sort of residues from oil, antifreeze, grease, etc. If the surface is contaminated, it will not bond.

Have you guys tried pressure modding the heatsink for the NB?

And I guess I must've lucked out because my board, when I used it, would load at ~69C in crossfire, according to Everest.

Been outta the GD70 loop for a little bit now, does it support the new hexacores? Any issues?

repasting NB works a treat on this board, i used to idle about 65c and on full load i would easily get to 80c, i repasted board using zalman paste and its now alot better, i ilde around 48c and full load doesnt go over 65c and thats running NB at either 2800 or 3000mhz so i recommend you do it, i only removed the pink goo and not the square pads, tho removing the pink goo will take some time as its like glue.

Cheers for the info m8! Just read this post. According to AoD and HWM NB is only 48C. Wot do you think? Everest wrong...?

Oh anyway, if it is inevitable to reapply the thermal paste, how much would you recommend to use? I intend to do it tomorro as soon as possible and I'm afraid I won't have the time to buy thermal pads.

yea there was a pressure mod tried and I believe it did work but is a ways back in this thread.
Hex cores do have support. Other then the all boards issue of blowing the PWM's but that is now thought to be due to people using the VDD voltage instead of the correct CPU-V for changes.

Not sure I wish I had a way to know for sure! I just know that I am going to go with what ever reads highest and keep that in the safe zone but that is my personal preference.
