post #301 of 1641
Hi overclock members,

This is my first post so bare with me...
Any way i got my self a Heatkiller 3.0 (full copper) with the backplate for 1366 socket.
Just in case this is my motherboard EVGA X58 SLI LE

http://www.evga.com/articles/00481/

Together with a core i7 920 the case i'm going to putt all my hardware in is this beauty of a case:

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/L...PC-X500/3.html

Together with a Aquastream XT pump, xspc480 rad, EK-fc275 gpu waterblock, swiftech micro res2, enzotech compression fittingen 3/8, masterkleer clear 3/8, and offcourse the Watercool Heatkiller 3.0.

Whats the correct way to connect the backplate to the motherboard? Should i face the name watercool on the backplate towards me when i look behind the motherboard? It seems the most logical way whats the point of hiding it but just to be sure...

How tight should i tighten the screws of the waterblock? Is there a way to measure it?
And what does 200N means?
Final question how much thermal paste should i use on the block and in what way, smile way, 2 stripes, a little bit on the centre, etc etc, i use the GELID GC Extreme Thermal Compound wich has good reviews.

Please bare with me its my first wc. I already did a huge research on watercooling what to do and what not. But i still have my questions for the Heatkiller.

Thanks in advance help is very much appreciated.

After two days of taking out my old Fuzion V2 and starting over from scratch here is my finished product. So you can add me to the Heatkiller club as well...



Forgot to mention before and after temps:

4.0 ghz OC 1.325 Volts 920 D0 Linx:
Fuzion V2: 72 - 73 - 74 - 68
Heatkiller: 62 - 63 - 64 - 60

(Note ambient temp much lower today by at least 4-5 degrees C with Heatkiller today. I'm still inpressed!)

-put it the way it supports the board the best. (make sure the metal doesnt touch any solder points, so make sure those poke trough any potention insulation material

-tighten it till the springs are half-compressed... should be around right.

-200 Newton. The superior (read: metric) unit of force.

-i always use the 1/2 grain of rice method, works best in my experience, just wiggle till it spreads to cover the IHS.

I used my old backplate from my Xigmatek Dark Night cooler. But I tightened it untill the springs were compressed. Is that bad? It seems to be cooler really well, but I don't want to mess something up because of that.

Wow that's a lot better than me. Do those i7s run cooler in general? My Q9650 is at 38C & 46C. Plus I think I have a pretty good radiator too. What's up with that?

Hello, I just got my Heatkiller in today, I been reading over and some questions come to mind I am hoping someone can help me out. I will be laying my motherboard Horizontally so does it matter what way I put the holes? Also do I want to put the inlet tube in the center barb? And one last question, should I remove the little metal silvery looking plate out of it for better flow? Thank you.

Is this for your Q6600? If it is, then ideally you should have the heatkiller positioned upright (take a look at my profile picture and you will see how to orient the HK). With that being said, some people on socket 1366 have had to mount their HK's sideways because of clearance with capacitors and what not. The inlet tube is the tube smack dab in the center of the HK...the tube on the bottom of the HK is the outlet port. As for the silver things in the plate...that is a flow distributor...if you are using the HK on a socket 775 quad-core then leave the silver distributor plate inside the HK. If you are using the HK on a socket 1366 or a socket 775 dual core then remove the distributor plate.
