*The CoolerMaster Hyper TX3 Owners Club* - Page 15

post #141 of 305
My supplies arrived!!!



So here I'll be showing you what the Arcti Clean does. Basically it eats away the old paste, you wipe what's left away (Had to do this 3 times on the cpu/cooler and 2 times on the gpu) and the second bottle basically makes it shiny and smooth



Next are the fans, and they are 100mm fans, with the TX3 fan clips mounted on them. The fans are nice because they have 100mm mounts and 92mm mounts.



The CPU and TX3 back in place with AS5 applied.



first fan attached.



second one.



Now on to the GTX 460.



As you can see the cheap thermal paste that came with the TX3 doesn't look like it applied very well. I certainly fixed that up!





Having finished with the 460, I pondered keeping the shroud and fan off and attaching the TX3's stick fan to the card in some way. Sadly I'm all out of zip ties so it has to wait



So now everything is back in and ready to go. Note that my old temps were 28c idle and 60c under load. Now for the new temps...



I like that improvement! I'll also post new temps after the AS5 cures, so expect them late next week.

Hey Guys,

How do you do to mount this in a vertical pos (I) and not horizontal (-)? i have an am3 socket

ty in advance

I've bought a TX-3 last week to replace the old stock cooler which came with the Q9550.
I'm currently not using the Cooler Master Blade Master but 1 Be Quiet 1800RPM.
This one is giving about the same temperature idle (32) and load (48).

Hi everybody, first post on this forum (registered just for this thread). I've been hating the lame mounting system of this heatsink for quite some time so when I had to rma my psu (corsair 550vx) I decided that it was time for a bolt-thru mod. I took an hacksaw and cut an X shaped backplate using a metal flat panel taken off an old dishwasher and then drilled 4 holes with a 4mm diameter using the holes on the tx3 mounting clips as a template (pushpins were removed previously). On the side that's going against the mobo I've put some silicone (it's rated for 150°C so it should't go on fire) that will behave as an electric insulator and a sort of "cushion" to avoid any physical damage to the mobo. I'll use 3mm diameter screws (hopefully they'll be enough to withstand the strain) and metallic nuts and washers. Will post some pictures later, but I'm going to tell you now that the backplate is ugly as sin and I did the worst possible cutting job, but who cares? Well not me at least ;) Currently waiting for the silicone to dry, once the heatsink will be mounted in place I'll test a push/pull configuration with the stock fan and the one that came with an old arctic freezer 7 that I no longer use (hopefully speedfan should allow me to control the ac7 fan speed even if it's connected to a 3pin fan header on the mobo). If corsair leaves me waiting another week for my damned PSU I might go for a lapping since the base is not even (slightly convex on the central heatpipe). Sadly I don't have any screenshot with previous temps, but you can compare them if you have a core2duo q9550. PS sorry about my english :o

I had a 35ish idle and 55ish load at stock frequency, but I didn't take any screenshot, like with the ac freezer7 and the intel heatsink before I always had the feeling that the contact wasn't tight enough.
The new temps aren't going to be comparable expecially because the computer is in a non heated room while everything is frozen outside and my previous temps were from september when we had 25-30°C. biggrin.gif
I'll run a single fan VS pushpull comparison if you want.

Could you help me finding a picture or something that shows where each core in a core2 quad processor is? If there are really uneven temps I might have to tighten down a bit more the corresponding screw.
BTW I think I've made a really tight mount, the metal brakets are bending very slightly, the motherboard isn't showing any twisting.. hopefully I won't have a cheap heatsink screwed on an expensive mobo+cpu combo. biggrin.gif

I tried to mount the old fan from the freezer 7 and ditched the idea because of its strange mounting bracket, I'll buy a couple of arctic f9 pwm which have a an Y splitter so both fans will run at the same speed (I was pleased by the freezer fan when I slowed it down with speedfan I could only hear the hard disk and my previous psu fan humming).

Sadly looks like I'll have to wait up to 3 more weeks for corsair to send me back a new psu. frown.gif
