If you had to say, how much would perfectly applied tim differ in temps over "not perfectly" applied tim.

Where "not perfectly" applied tim would either be using to much or to little.

I'm not sure exactly but I've done quite a few reseats on my H50 in my day and have seen up to a 3* (load temps) difference in some cases using the same brand tim. Mounting pressure and ambient temps will make a difference too but from the looks of your pic you it looked like you had some decent pressure to squeeze the tim out and over the side of the cpu.

I went from a lapped TRUE to an H70 and my temperatures definitely improved across the board (both idle and load).

My temps only dropped 2*c with my H50 over my lapped dark knight cooler in push/pull. I was hoping for a bit more but all well 2* is 2* lol.

Intake or exhaust ?

My load temps are way better with the H70 than the TRUE(10 odd *C). But the idle temps increase by about 3*C, and ofc since you never really get to full load temps the average is worse overall.

I had my fans in exhaust with my case open comparing them so the ambient temps would have been the same in both cases(i'm talking about the air going into the intake fan of the coolers).

My ambient temps are around 29-32*C atm.Summer time in South Africa, joy =(

Do you think a proper tim appliance would see the H70 beat the TRUE @ idle ? In my case.

Dam your ambient temps are killing you no matter what cooler you use. Idle temps don't mean squat I wouldn't sweat a few degree's difference there. Load temps are the most important. I saw a few degree decrease in load temps after installing my H50 over my dark knight air cooler but I really only saw that drop in temps during heavy long stress testing. During everyday use load temps were almost identical between my H50 and DK cooler. The H50 def allowed me to push my overclock a bit father than my DK would allow but not by as much as I was expecting.

Ye, i guess your right , just doesn't seem worth upgrading to a better cooler when most of the time my temp meter is telling me i made a downgrade.

Tomorrow i'll try the H70 again with little less tim, see what difference that makes.

Otherwise i might have to consider lapping the H70, if you look at the picture you will see its only the middle part that got nice contact, the outer rims of the circle seems to have to much tim still there.

OK another day and another go around at the H70. Re-Seated with less thermal paste and switched so the air flow is going into the case.

numbers at idle 4.0 GHz
Still too high ya think?
