I will try again soon, I've gotta get the mount right next time to get better results for sure.
I want to thank [MENTION=37631]ProKoN[/MENTION] , [MENTION=45442]rtsurfer[/MENTION] and [MENTION=36437]Jumper118[/MENTION] for helping me out with the prep and little tips here and there, appreciate it a lot guys.
I think I did something wrong, because CPU temps were still going positive temps (are they supposed to do this...?)
Big XTU run at 5.3 ghz on CPU, 5.2 on cache, and 2800 mhz CL9 on RAM
You can see cpu hit 39c load temp, yet pot was at -60c, so I believe bad mount for sure.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02mJV3GTmFQ
Just like rasparthe said you definitely should go tighter with the springs, especially with dice because it's not getting everything as cold as ln2 would, where maybe just using pot with it's own weight you could get away with.
I would go halfway down the space on the rods above the hold down bracket.
Also xtu is not the best bench to test a good mount, it's so stressful that the temps will be a lot different than most other benches. With xtu and dice temps it wouldn't be weird to see positive temps under load.
