Nh-d14 and 2600k terrible temps. Thermal paste pictures - Page 3

post #21 of 47
Thread Starter 
I did put probably about double the amount I used the first time. The fans are blowing up, and it's definitely tightened down all the way. Are you guys sure those temps are still high?

I put everything back to stock 3.4Ghz auto everything because my overclock was failing and it's been running prime95 non stop with the max temps in the mid 50's. How does that sound?

I don't think noctua's TIM is better than AS5 but I've seen reviews where they are about the same. I could have used it but decided to stick with AS5.

Nobody can really judge if your temps are good or bad until they know what your ambient temps are.

You're right, sorry about that. Room temp is around 16-20 C which is pretty much the coolest it's going to get.

I'd say ditch the AS5 and get some IC diamond. Put a pea sized amount right in the center per instructions. Cure time 2 hours, works great. Lapping the IHS and heatsink both may help too.

The stock NT-H1 is pretty good and doesn't need curing for full effect. But it shouldn't make a huge difference, maybe a degree or two either way at best.

Spread thermal paste like this and see how it works.


Your temps should be something like this @ 1.4v.
