post #561 of 640
Please...:

1. Will an Archon Rev. A fit in a new Corsair Obsidian Series 550D without top fans and door fans using P9X79 Deluxe?

2. Are Corsair Vengeance DIMMs compatible with above cooler and motherboard using only slots 1, 3, 4 and 7?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, so I did end up getting this cooler and I'm having a bit of touble with my temps. Basically, since installing this cooler about 2 weeks ago, I haven't been able to even equal the temps I had with my Hyper 212+, much less lower them. I have tried all sorts of TIM applications: using more, using less, applying a dab in the middle, spreading it all out, spreading it into a narrow vertical line. I'm pretty confident that I can rule out bad application of TIM, because I reapplied 6 or 7 times and most of them had good contact when I later removed the heatsink. Then to rule out the TIM itself (the first 3 applications of the included Chill Factor 3 were extremely viscous and hard to spread, while the rest were more liquidy, so I reasoned that it had simply separated and could all be bad) I bought a tube of MX-2, hoping that its thinner consistency would allow for even better contact.

Here is my 2500K at 4.4GHz with 1.3v with the fresh TIM:
384
These temps are only slightly better than what my Hyper 212+ would have gotten in Intel Burn Test, which comes with something like its own 8 degree C premium; and it's still between 10 and 20 degrees higher than comparable screenshots I see in this thread. I got this cooler with the intent of going past 4.4, but it looks like a step backward from what I had.

Is there any trick or something to mounting this? Is it a good idea to tighten to central thumbscrew all the way, or is it enough to just give it a few firm nudges after the two main screws are all the way in? I wonder if maybe the Archon's convex base is working against me. I'm just frustrated that all this time and money is yielding nothing so far. Alternatively, you can tell me it's nothing to worry about and I'm being a neurotic nut; it's nothing new for me. smile.gif

dont spread the tim manually
remount it, the mounting kit has to be "finger tight" then adjust the middle nob until you recognize that you would need an insane amount to pressure to tighten it more down.

also the concave doesnt really matter, it helps to get the best possible contact to the "die"

which fans are you using? The Ty140? one or two of them? fullspeed or pwm?

I'm using the single included TY-150 connected to a PWM header on the motherboard. For this latest mounting I only used a dab of TIM in the center (seeing as it was much thinner than the stuff that came with the cooler).

It should come included if you bought it new. If you bought it used, I'm pretty sure you can order a set from the Thermalright website. Or even open up a wanted thread in the marketplace here. I'm sure someone will have one.
