Thanks everyone! I took everything apart and reseated the heatsink. I used the stock CoolerMaster thermal paste and applied it in one of the pic below. I'm running Prime95 for ~45 min small FFT and temp is around 72-74. First couple pics are those before reapplying. This is a decent temp for 3.8 overclock right?

Thanks for all your help again!

I think for a true heat test you need to work on the large ffts.

Also, notice the lines etched on your proc from the application- the lines where the heatpipes go through take in a fair share of paste- though they are remarkably narrow and shallow. I find a little more needs to be applied to "fill the gaps."

I used that cooler too and loved it... but had to be a bit more generous with my application of IC7.

about your tim application, for heat pipe direct touch coolers like yours, use this method:



that cooler is a xigmatek but use the same method.

looks like from your post above you did it right!!

I don't understand why so many people still use thermal paste with a curing time when there're so many other pastes that don't require curing time.

Yep, I noticed that too! I spread an even coat of TIM on the cooler and used a plastic wrap to spread an even coat. I then use a credit card and scrap it vertically to get an even surface throughout. I then use the method from the site mtbiker033 found. The temps now is at ~74 during load. i'll run the large FFTS tonight before going to sleep.

@mtbiker033
Yeah I used the exact method on that site!

@blackbalt89
I'm not used to all these thermal pastes. I just read some places online saying how good AS5 is, so that's why I bought it. I guess I should have done more research.

Regarding Prime95, what is the best option to test for stability? Small ffts, large ffts, or blend? I'm planning on doing that overnight. Thanks in advance everyone! Also, do you guys think with these temperature if I should up the overclock to 4.0?

To test processor stability Small/Large FFTs, to check RAM/QPI/CPU Blend test.
What I do is, leave blend test overnight and when I wake up, 50 runs of IBT on max memory usage. If it doesn't fails, I'm stable.

So 10 hours of Prime95 on blend mode, my max temp is 75C. Is this good for a 3.8Ghz overclock? I did 8 runs of Intel Burn Test right afterward and the temp reached 77C! Can I assume my system is stable or more test should be done? Given the temperatures, should I up my overclock to 4.0 or stay at 3.8? Anything else that I can do to lower my temp? Btw HT is on at 3.8.

Thanks.
post #18 of 26
If you've tested for 10 hours on Prime, then the next step would be to test for 11. And then 12. (Kidding, though it does sometimes feel like it never ends) AND after you've accomplished that you'll be bored with your current overclock and want to bump it up a little anyway- and the process begins anew

Kidding, but you will get bored with it... and when you do, we'll be here

I think you should leave it at 3.8 with that cooler I don't know if you can go higher with HT on. Make 50 IBT runs if you can, and we can call it stable.

Strap another fan on that cooler in a push pull and you are in the 4 gigz no sweat. Just because it's not 80 bucks doesn't mean it isn't AWESOME.

If you DO get bored and look at pushing the throttles forward a bit more, get bored with AS5 too and take a look at some new paste. Also, grab another 120x120x25 fan and use the supplied bracket to put it on. As for what kind of fan? Well, that's another conversation! That'll keep you in the same temp ranges (remember, your AS5 will cure in about 200 hours or so and your temps will drop beyond that) and yet give you room to improve performance even on the stock cooler.

Additionally, if your clock is stable, then you could consider re-enabling some of those power saving features- that will help prevent your CPU from running at that clock all the time.
