Installing the board will be a challenge with the loop already in place, but definitely doable.

Here is a couple pics. I'll add more later.
Good luck

Here is my proof and here is a picture of my heatsink under modification. My heatsink was slightly touching both SB and NB so I just took a screwdriver and removed the yellow TIM and reapplied some new TIM in it's place. I left a border like someone recommended to keep the new stuff from getting on the chip.

After doing so I'm not getting the quite the temps I would like but this will do for now. I did file the standoffs down a bit on the NB side but I think it could have used a little more.

Idle:

NB: 48c
SB: 40c

Still need to test load temps.

What tim did you you use, still seems a little high, but still usable

Artic Silver 5 which I applied Friday. So its approaching the 100 hour cure time some people have mentioned. I'm wondering though if part of my higher temps are due to the ambient in that room as well as the general cooling in my case. My CPU also idles at 40c which is higher then some of the others have mentioned. My case is inside a computer desk and it doesn't get as much fresh air as I would like. So that could contribute to the higher temps as well.

I'm going to put the computer under stress and see if I go above the 60c. If I do I'll probably go through the painful process of re-seating the heatsink again to see if I can bring the temps down further. As it stands right now I'm a little paranoid to take the thing apart for fear I'll damage something. I've already have to RMA one board and I don't want to have to go through that process again.


What is NB responsible for again? If I recall I think it supports the memory correct? Could higher temps be related to 4 DIMS of ram as opposed to 2? Also did they say the safe cutoff for NB was 65c?

All the things you state could be the cause of your temps.
example: yesterday I repostioned my h50 because I like the hoses on top.
before I did this my cpu was 28-30, load temps never went past 42-44. Nb was idling at 36-37 sb at 32-33, as soon as I switched the postion of my h50 cpu temps went to 32-34 and 47-48 on load, nb went to 38-40, 48+ on load, all still safe but higher. I plan on seeing if it corrects it self or I guess I will put the hoses back on bottom.
So all those things can have a effect on those temps
Also I had to pull mine out of the desk, do that and see if your temps dont drop 5 degrees

I think tonight I'll try two things and see what happens.

1) I'll see what the difference is if I run with my case in the Open.

2) I'll run with only 2 DIMS instead of 4 and see if that makes any difference.

I'll report back my results.

Bull****. Don't let that guy waste your time. Your NB and SB temps seem just about right. It doesn't get better with this chip+this HS+AS-5. In fact if you waited longer in the BIOS your temps would have been a bit higher on the SB by a deg or two I suspect.

See my post a few pages back. It'll help you.

The people that report these low to mid 30's on the NB and SB don't know how to take the idle temp. The idle temp is a lot harder to take than the load temps. It isn't rocket science but it does require patience. Booting into BIOS and marking your temp after 30sec to 2min is not going to give you your TRUE idle temp. Your TRUE idle temps will be about 10 to 15degC higher than that and will be reached around the 15min mark in the BIOS! The NB and SB temps climb very slowly so a lot of people mark their temps way before the temps stabilize.

Your NB 48degC is spot on with myself and a few others that I've seen that actually know how to take temps.

That is normal. As long as that is TRUE idle, you're fine. The X4 and X6 AMD's in the 3.2 to 3.4Ghz range TRUE idle at around 37 to 42degC. That with a top of the line HSF. YOu should get about the same with the stock HSF. Interestingly tho, a top of the line HS will not let you go above 52degC under a full stress test (Prime95 blend). Therefore these CPU's with a high quality HSF work inthe range of 37 to 52degC.

The best thing you could do is find a place for your computer outside of the enclosed cabinet and get it as much air as possible. Fans are relatively cheap and easy to install.

The CrosshairIV is a high performance piece of equipment......if you don't give it enough air it will get hot just like a car would or anything else.

And FYI, your temps may drop 1-2 degrees when AS5 fully cures, but you may not notice any change at all.

Good for you , YOU must Be the MAN, born right out a pc or something, all that and a big slice of cheese to boot.
I wasnt wasting anybodys time, just asking a question, although I dont recall asking you Sxxt.
He seems to want lower temps than he is getting and said he replaced his TIM so asking what he used is a waste of his time????, If it was then HE didnt have to reply then did he?
But as it is, being the MAN and all, with just the right suff, You assume I dont know what an idle temp is? That kind of makes you one of those smug prxxks That I dont care for on this forum
Try minding your own bussiness instead of being rude
And If you dont like my reply then report me, I will gladly take the mark against me to finally say whats on my mind to someone like you
