I'd like to join.

448

Used AS5 instead of whatever they (Corsair) put on there. So far a 10c drop in Prime95 load temps vs stock cooler, might get better after burn-in period.

10c seems a little low. When I added an H70 to a core 2 quad, not only did I get close to a 20c temp reduction under load, but that was after overclocking the CPU 30% faster. I know the H60 is a good cooler because I just got finished installing one on the same board I sold to a friend of mine and it was only a few degrees warmer than the H70 (it impressed me how well it did with the smaller rad). Of course maybe your AMD stock cooler was better than the Intel stock cooler I was using.
Check your mounting and make sure the block is seated well. It's too bad you removed the stock TIM. It's made by Dow Corning and is supposed to be as good or better than AS5, but it has no curing time like AS5 has. (I use AS5 when I have to remount a cooler and clean off the stock TIM).

I may consider remounting it this evening. Might have helped if I put my actual temps.

Ambient around: 22-23c

Clocked at 3.7 the temps were:
Idle: 36-40c (can't remember doh.gif)
Load: 49-50c

Now I have it clocked at 4.008 (CPU-Z Val) and the temps are:
Idle: Fluctuates from 36-38c
Max load temp after an hour of P95: 54c

On the stock AMD cooler I was getting load temps (at stock 3.5) around 60-62c, which I didn't think was too awful.

So Merg, think a remount would help any? 54c at 4.0 isn't too bad but I guess it could be better?

Edit: Note: All temps are well before burn-in period

A very clean and well cable managed build you have there, how are those coolermaster excalibur fans doing on the H100 in regards to temperatures and the amount of noise they produce?

Also does anyone know what Thermal Paste is used on the H100 and whether it is possible to buy some more of it?
I've got a new motherboard coming this week so i will need to remount my H100.

I can't say for sure, but I would have thought the H60 would handle your CPU a little better than it is. You're only overclocking by 200MHz, which is really nothing. That shouldn't add much heat to it. During load I would expect at least a 20c drop from the stock cooler myself. I haven't owned an AMD for over five years so maybe I just don't know what to expect from one, but I sure got a great drop from that H70 and I think the H60 is pretty close in performance to the H70 from what I saw installing one on the same board.

Check and make sure the block is not hitting any capacitors mounted around your CPU (I doubt it is. I think the temp would be even higher if it was). Give a reseat a try and cross your fingers.

The H100 uses Dow Corning TIM. As far as I know it's not available to the public. AS5 is in the same class, but it has a curing time so you won't get the best temps for a week or so depending on how much you use your computer. With AS5 I've seen my CPU temp drop by around 1-3c after the curing time is up.

Here's a pretty good list of TIMs. It's a little old now, but it still stands up pretty well.

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=150&Itemid=62

Any of the "A" grade TIMs should be good. Even the "B" grade TIMS are pretty good as well. The difference is only a few degrees.

I left the computer running while I was out of the house for a few hours. Right now idle temps are 41c, which is only about 6-8c lower than stock cooler. I'm reseating after this post thumb.gif

PS: The stock clock is 3.5 and its overclocked to 4.0 now.

the COM Excalibur fans are the best fans I have used they move alot of air and I dont really mind the noise. They keep me idle at 35C max 60C at 4.5ghz. I could push further but 4.5ghz is good enough for me.

I've got some spare Shin-Etsu G751, it's on the "A" grade TIM list so that will do.

They're quite good temperatures you have there. Now i've got a choice between the Coolermaster Excaibur or save up a bit more for 2 Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm's.

I would recommend the CM Excalibur fans to be honest with you I have them in PUSH/PULL. They move alot of air. I will be putting 2 more in the front of my case with shrouds on them to move more air in my case to cool my VRMs
