Your welcome..

Im afraid not. The only thing I can suggest is remove the Scythe and re-install the stock. If your temps are better, then its the Scythe.

Ill be interested in your load results - cant see where you posted them

Ahhh... its your HS, its gotta be.

Swap out the Scythe and replace with stock and run the stress test again please.

Ill be suprised if they are higher.

Addit. Its getting late where you are. If you getting tired, call it a day.

Make sure those two little plastic tabs around the bottom of each pin are down and not bent causing the plastic to not go through the motherboard holes, creating upward pressure which causes the heat sink to not be firmly seated.

You can inspect this from the back without taking the cooler off, at least on my board.

Edit: I hate explaining with words, even when I'm totally comprehensible. So here's a photo.

These are some reviews from Newegg.


Cons: Fan speed too slow when used on Intel DP55WB.
But not really the fan the Intel mb only has two setting auto
and bypass. Set to bypass using Zalman speed control.
Clips a little tricky.



Cons: A little tricky to install the last push pin. I had to use a screw driver to push down and twist the last pin into place. It's not very difficult to do but is something to be aware of. It would probably be a lot easier to install of you do it before installing the motherboard into the case.


Cons: *Push-pin installation has some complications particular to this HS; to make the most of space, the push-pins are excessively crowded



Cons: "Pushpin" mounting very awkward with 1156/1366 mounting (two pins overhung by HS blades, difficult to get good pressure on)
Connection of various 'mounting arms' to main body feels cheesy


Cons: Same cooling as my stock cooler for my i7 950.

Looks like you're not the only one. I'm thinking this cooler was designed more for the low profile HTPC type deals where lower heat CPU's are used, not an i7-950.

Push pin heatsinks should be installed with the motherboard out of the case,or at least you need to check the underside to be sure all 4 black pins are pushed through the board all the way.

If you do happen to find a bent plastic prong. Bend it back VERY slowly or it will snap, and then you're screwed. Unless you feel like cutting copper tubing so you can wedge it between the heat sink and the corner of the case so the tubing pushes the heat sink down onto the CPU, I'd be careful.

Not like I would know from experience or anything.

Well... Here is what we have all been waiting for. That one pin was not secure. I think this looks a lot better how about you guys? Thanks to all who has helped out.
