955 BE Noctua BH-D14

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just put together my PC and im cooling my phenom 955 with a noctua NH-D14 and i have idle temps 35-37 degress @ stock clock is that normal or did i apply thermalpaste wrong? im not using resistors i have fans at full stock speed i think 1200 rpm something like that. room temp around 20 degrees.

Here is a pic of my thermal paste dot that i did when i put cooler on. is it too much paste or does it look good?

That thermal drop looks like a bean size, you need to use a un-cooked grain of rice size. I'd recommend applying a rice sized drop in the middle just like you did and try again.

Yeah, that does seem a bit hot. My 955 makes 48c max @ load with a slight OC.

Idle temps don't mean a thing champ. But yes, 25C is on the good end of the scale

It's hot; reseat the cooler, use less thermal paste. I sort of prefer an X layout for non HDT coolers over a dot, but it depends on the TIM.
