Hey guys,

I just swapped out my 975 for my 920 to see the difference in temps. My 975 @ 1.28v and 4.0GHz used to run with a max of 65c and a idle of about 36. I have just put my 920 in at stock and it reaches the high 80s on load and mid 40s at idle? I have changed my H50 to exhaust however? also what is the proper way to connect fans so they run 100% all the time? just straight into molex? does daisy chaining them on Molex ruin it? advice would be good guys

Yes run them straight to a moxel for moar powa.

It reaching high 80's on the other hand is uber fail. Something must have mounted wrong or the thermal could be too thick or too thing.

Artic Silver 5 !!!!! My temps are GREAT !!! right now Im as im typing this I have 16*c - 20*c Im usually running at 15*c - 18*c but my rad is a little dirty. And the best way to apply it I have found is to start with a small dot in the middle of the cpu and smear it out with a plastic card ( used giftcard will work ) then do this again and again till you have the whole cpu covered. You can order from Newegg or you local Radioshack carries it.

Corsair's thermal paste is Shin Etsu which is already an excellent thermal paste. If you were to replace it I would suggest ICD7, but I wouldn't bother.

Contrary to the person who posted above me - Shin Etsu is better than AC5, and also better than MX3.

Contrary to ....???? The Guy was asking for personal opinions .... I use Artic Silver5 and have great results If you use ICD7 thats good too I may try that one day but no reason to make such a statement.

Yeah I'm sure you do get results with AC5, it's a good thermal paste. But I wouldnt replace the stock thermal tape (which is Shin Etsu) with AC5, since Shin Etsu ranks higher than AC5.

I personally use AS5
post #1920 of 28306
To be honest the difference between all of these is minimal, I'm using MX3 because after a couple of uses I didnt feel that it was safe to use the Shin Etsu any more. But if I hadnt of had that tube of MX3 lying around I would have bought some IC Diamond 7. Of course, Indigo Extreme is the absolute king of thermal paste - but I cant justify spending $10 per application
