Noctua NH-D14 Air Cooler AMD 965

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi i am new just wondering if anyone can go pass 4.2ghz on air, i just bought Noctua D14 and can go 4.2 ghz on 1.51 Vcore, but when i set my ram to 1600 and nb to 2600(1.2) i have to add a bit more voltage to 1.524 vcore. I have 3 fans on the noctua...Also did anyone use the paste that came with it? Its the NT-H1 paste? I used it and i think its worst than artic 5 silver...

I thought that the tim that came with my d14 was awesome, much better than as5. Maybe we got different tim. For an i7 to get to 4.2 is right around the max i can go with mine, but i'm not to familiar with the amd 965 temps.

I am past that on air...but my voltages are much lower, hence less heat being produced

hm...did you do the dot method where you put 4-5mm in the center? I tried that method the temps was ok but not great...i put the arctic 5 back on and the temp was the same...but the arctic 5 still needs burn in and will reduce 2 or 3 C.

The tim that came with the d14 says it doesn't require curing? So i thought arctic 5 would be better after the burn in...

The way i put arctic 5 silver is i put a dot in the middle, then i cut a small piece of plastic and spread without force so its even all over and it gives me great temps, with the d14 paste i did it like the manual and the temp was 1 or 2C below arctic 5. Weird maybe the mounting was off with the D14 tims...

I did the dot in the middle method. Seems to work out best for me. My HSF has been in place for a good 6 months though, so any setting that may or may not have been needed would have had plenty of time to "cure", or whatever you want to call it.

I can do 4.3 ghz if i don't OC my ram to 1600 and nb to 2600. Once i increase the ram and nb frequency the cpu produces more heat. Is it me or is it for everyone?

Omg the paste is actually really good!

I reinstalled D14, i used the thermal paste it came with. Don't do the dot in the middle method! I cut a piece of plastic...sqeeze like 3-4mm of paste very little. Then spread it with that piece of plastic. It took me 15-20 minutes to spread it...cause there was so little. I added like 1 mm and kept on doing it. Until it was all even without any marks or scraps from the plastic. I then lower the fans so it would blow onto my ram and motherboard. When you lower the fan it blows into the heatpipes more.

My temps with Prime 95 is 51C after 30 min @ 4.2ghz nb 2600 ram 1600. before that, with arctic 5 silver was 55C. On the website it says lowering the fan will cool your motherboard and it does.
