28c is bit warm for ambient. Still, load temp is too high. How much thermal paste did you put on?

have you rechecked your thermal paste? checked to make sure the cooler is seated properly? made sure your cpu fan is blowing in the correct direction?

those are the questions i always start with. and yes, this is the right spot

Don't expect great results for a 125W processor on a TX3 with its 92MM fan and small figure
But yeah, this is too hot. It should at least be better than stock. You should reseat your heatsink, it may be a problem with contact or the TIM has air bubbles.

I'll recheck thermal paste, i never applied thermal paste before but i guess i didnt put too much. Should i apply it between the heatpipes or just a little in the middle ?

I'll do this when i recheck the thermal paste.


Im not next to my computer right now, is there any other things i can do ?

Thank you guys.

For the thermal paste, just apply a sliver about the size of a rice on top of the processor. Don't smear it around - installing the heatsink will do this for you.

However, your heat sink is a bit strange, the bottom isn't smooth. I'm worried paste will get caught along the grooves of the pipes and not disperse evenly?

Anyone have thoughts on this or have the Hyper TX3?

He has the older gen HDT heatpipes.

My Hyper 212+ is the same. Here's a link for application.

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=5

Just fill in the grooves than apply the thermal paste normally. If you don't, the thermal paste won't cover the whole chip and get stuck in the grooves.

Also the fan in the drive bay is redundant. You want maximum air from the bottom since thats the coolest air (heat rises).

Better attach it to your heatsink with zipties in push/pull config.

If not take the drive bay fan and put it as outtake in the top right position to help pull cooler air up.
Or if your side has a spot for a fan blow one on your GPU.

Also I think your case has a vent for your PSU to pull air from the bottom. Make sure its not pulling in from the case.

Good luck though, seems like a bad thermal paste application.

These HDT heatsinks are tricky.

Hasn't this guy used too much thermal paste ?

Edit: I have put a ''new'' thermal paste, but it seems like the same thing...

28C = 82.4F
If it is that warm all the time where you are then you will probably want to invest in a better heatsink. Hyper 212+ and similar coolers can be had for around $25. Try to get some airflow in the room if you can too. AC is ideal, but regular house fans help too. Try positioning the case closer to a window or where there is a draft if that will help.
