3. Your memory will be fine as long as there is metal touching it - even then, something going wrong with it is pretty remote. Most (all?) cables are insulated with some non-conductive material, so even if the cable is touching, its shouldn't do any damage. If you're afraid, just take a picture and attach it here so I can confirm it.

Hope I help.

P.S: Welcome to OCN! We hope you stick around!

1.Is your Archon rock steady now. I also have the stock Intel cooler that came with the CPU and it seems rock steady as opposed to the Archon- I haven't installed it but may do as I am scared the Archon would short circuit something. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem.
2. I tried turning the pressure knob with the tool but it did not budge. I wonder if I a missing something in the documentation??
3. It's not the cable that I am worried about but the metal pins clipped to the side of the fan that worries me.

I will try to get some pictures. the ones I have at the moment at dark abnd blurry.

Quick question to anyone who has an Archon:

What is your max load temperature?
I'm starting to get worried about my temps....AGAIN...

Use core temp if possible just to keep the numbers consistent. It doesn't really matter what CPU you're using, I just want numbers.

Dang - I've definitely done something wrong. My load temperatures at in the high 70s, with core 4 sitting at 80.

I'm sure it's my thermal paste, and like I've said many times before, I really need to reseat it. I'll get around to doing it on either the 27th, right after my final high school diploma exam or on the 28th.

Thanks for the input.

reseat and also think about case airflow, on mine I have top intake, side intake, front intake, and only one exhaust it is great and since you have push pull you don't even need an exhaust fan if you cut out the back grill with wire cutters

btw what tim are you using and what application method

Alright, I'll try reversing my top fan so that its an intake.

I'm using the thermalright CFIII TIM that came with the Archon. as for application method, thats guaranteed where I went wrong. I put a pretty big blob that when I put the cooler onto, leaked out from all the edges. TBH, that was my first time putting on a cooler, so thats probably why I put so much.

I'm going to have to clean it out and put just a very little amount of the stuff next time.

Thanks for the help so far

Yeah - thats what I've read recently. Too bad I didn't know that. I ended up putting about 3/4 size of a pea. It was a pretty big pea at that too

Dang, can't wait to get these pesky exams over. I have my Calculus final tomorrow and my Physics diploma on the 27th. Once those are over, I'm all free
