At the moment, i'm getting an idle temp of 40-41C :S. I tried reseating twice, and applied different amounts of TIM but to no avail...

I have a feeling its the setup of my fans at the moment? I have it on top as an exhaust... ** if you know what a FT02 looks like. any suggestions?

thanks ^_^

will post pic when i get this sorted... I r wanting 2 be in clubz 2!

Somthing is most definetly not right. What is your ambient temperature? With that CPU (at stock) and that cooler at 20 C ambient you should idle at about 27 C. Max temp using Prime 95 blended should be no higher than about 48 C. Note you should always try to have a matched pair of fans for push pull, also make sure they are in fact push/pull and not push/push (it has happened before). Is the pump at max rpm? If not use molex to attach directly to power supply.

Those are the same kind of temps I'm getting on stock pc settings, except my fan is running at 2000RPM! What kind of TIM are you using? And how are you applying it? I used Ceramique and just applied pressure to the heatsink instead of spreading it out manually. I also have my push/pull fans as as exhaust.

Plan on reapplying different TIM, using Shin Etsu this time. I'll let you know how that goes.

Physicall look at your mobo to see where the pump is receiving its power (probably a system fan header labeled something like sys_fan1 on the mobo). After you physically determine which header its getting power from, reboot the computer and hop into your BIOS. Browse the bios for a page with fan settings and temperature readings (in my BIOS I think it's called System Health or something).

Look at the list of fans (CPU Fan, Sys Fan 1, Sys Fan2, etc.). It should list the RPM for each fan (or in this case, the pump).

Make sure that you have all of your fan settings on manual for whichever header your pump is getting power from, that way it will run full RPM instead of throttling it based on CPU temp.

The RPM should be in the neighborhood of 1400. Mine runs at 1380.

So the shroud goes between the push and radiator right?

That's where mine hangs out!

That is definitely where you want the shroud since you are trying to remove the dead spot from the middle of the radiator caused by the fan hub. In a perfect world 2 shrouds can be used to achieve maximum flow through the rad but sometimes people don't have room for that.

Thanks. Would I need extra screws? If so what sizes?

You will need longer screws to go through the fan, shroud and rad. The length depends on the thickness of your shroud. I made my own shroud out of an old crappy fan that was 120mm x 120mm x 20mm (thickness).

So a 20mm thick shroud made me use 6/32 x 2.5" screws. Just go to the hardware store and ask for exactly that. They were a little long so I purchased some good plastic washers and rubber grommets for anti-vibration.

-.-

Guess I shouldn't have ordered those 6/32 x 1.25 screws so soon. Meh it only cost me $3 for a box of 25 of them.

I think I'm going to just make my own shroud from a 120mm fan from the current PC I'm using.

An excellent idea! Cheap and effective, my favorite!
