post #591 of 640
totally want to get this for my new computer. not sure if it will clear my RAM or not and whether its totally overkill for keeping my cpu cooler when rendering/encoding video. but definitely want something from thermalright. maybe a smaller version of this with a 120mm fan instead so it fits in my case lol

post #592 of 640
This being my first post on the forums, I would like to say hi to everyone!

I am using the TR Archon with two TY-150 (at 1100RPM both) on a P8Z77-V with a 3770K at 4.6GHz (1.26V and 1.6V PLL). After I installed the heatsink I noticed that I could turn it without much force so I tried mounting it again but, unfortunately, I had the same results. I ran Prime95 (Small FFTs) for about 35 minutes (just to see how high temps go; I know you need to test more to see if you have maximum stability) and the temps were 86/91/89/85. Are these temps normal or is the mounting being loose affecting the temperatures?

I tried everything I could think of while mounting but still could not get it as tight as it should. Anyone else experienced this issue while mounting?

just because you can turn it doesn't mean it's loose. thermal paste acts like grease. i had to jerry rig mine so it's on tighter than it should be. you could try spacers or something to tighten it if you think that would improve things. there might be another problem like too much paste, not enough paste, maybe it's not sitting flat. im not sure. what temps would you like to see

I think the voltage was too high for my particular chip. It is prime stable even at 4.7GHz with that voltage (1.265V). I ended up mounting another TR TY-140 fan to blow air on the Archon and temps improved.

The turning heatsink was my main concern, I never experienced anything like this with other CPU coolers.
post #595 of 640
Can anyone confirm the the fitment of the archon on an ASUS m4a87td evo mobo? Also while in search for my new cpu cooler I was wondering if anyone knew the difference between the archon sb-e and the rev.A versions are?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that my only real worry is if in east/west configuration. Will the heatsink pipes hit the heatsink on my mobo?

Pulled the gun and bought the archon rev. A. SO lets hope it'll fit.

Just a mini update:

I've been planning to do a couple tests to see how humidity affects the cooling efficiency of this cooler. Theoretically, a higher relative humidity should offer lower temperatures (due to the higher specific heat capacity of water as compared to air) but its hard to say at this point.

I'm gathering initial temperature data for various heat outputs, and right now I'm doing the baseline tests. At room temperature and a pretty low relative humidity: 22.5C and 16% humidity. Ideally I'll be testing both the idle and load temperatures at various relative humidities (the T-delta to be exact) and plotting them to see if a relationship exists. Furthermore, I'll be restesting at various heat outputs - right now at 168W (3.8Ghz), then at 182W (4Ghz) and finally at 130W (stock 3.06Ghz). I'll either keep updating this thread or make a new one - haven't decided on which one ye

If anyone has any ideas on how to control the relative humidity, please do share. I've tried increasing it with just conventional room humidifiers, but they hit a hard wall around 24-35% humidity. This "experiment" will probably take a while - in the range of a month or so, just because I'm having a lot of trouble getting the humidity high enough in my room.

EDIT: All testing so far is being done on an i7 950 at the above frequencies.

if you have a window, plants transpire water vapor into the air. that might help some
be wary of mildew or mold growing if you're keeping it that high that long
i'm interested in seeing the results but it might be a better experiment for a test chamber rather than your room

Look forward t seeing how your testing goes. I experimented years ago on aircooled VWs to increase cooling by injecting water vapor into fan intake. Use a windshield washer pump and noozle turnning on pump when climbing desert mountain passes. It definitely cooled things down!.. Problem was carrying enough water; biggrin.gif

If humidifier won't bring humidity up enough, plants definitely won't... and with outside temps getting colder keep inside humidity up will become even more of a problem for you.
