No, heat will rise upwards out of the open side of the case when it's on its side. This means it can grab cooler air from in front of it. Compared to when your case is upright, the hot air will rise to the top (in front and below the cooler) and thus be pulled through it, which obviously isn't going to make the radiators as cold.

My core 0 is also about 5 degress hotter, but it was the same on my old cooler too. I believe it is to do with the amount of applications running of which default their affinity to this core.

This is why some of us use top intake: since air goes where you push it, if you take unheated air from the outside and give it to your heatsink you will have lower temps than if you let warmed air rise from your other components.

Here is a diagram from my previous setup:

I get cooler temps with the case upright and the side panel closed.

Problem is, that setup would be very loud. Not so much the fans themselves, but the sound of air movement inside the case. I'd rather have a near-silent PC with a few extra degrees rather than a rather loud one but with slightly lower temperatures.

In my experience, adding more 120mm fans has not proved much of a noticeable difference in my CPU and GPU temps, and this is with high airflow yate loons.

one of my friends which got an nh-d14 told me that this thermal compound got a high viscosity and it is better to spread it with a credit card, even though I think there will be less air bubbles if I use the rice grain method.

after I will install my nh-d14, will take a picture and join the club smile.gif


noone can answer me?

The rice grain method works completely fine with it.

Those are peas.

Be sure to test tour temps tomorrow and report back. Please include ambient temp, clockspeed and Vcore.

OMG, it means that my nt-h1 seringe will last forever by applying such small amounts of them compund.

I wish it is the right viscosity and will spread well.

I will smile.gif, but the ambient temp will be estimated since right now I have no thermometer, just an AC blowing air to make 19 deg C in the room.

With my D14, I've tried too little and too much thermal paste.. manual and pressure spread and tried different TIM's there doesnt seem to be any adverse effects.. maybe just 1-2c
