PhenomX4 955BE heat issues - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Snorlax1821, no offense but reading your posts really hurts my eyes

Have you tried lowering the ambient temperature in your room? I had the stock cooler on my cpu for awhile and it didn't ever get above 43c, with the Xigmatek Dark Knight I am sitting at 34 while gaming. 36-37 which running Prime95.

I use my Computer to heat my home office since the exhaustion is awesome on the Antec 900 case.

Now that i see my post i agree,Sorry about not spreading the post out to make it more eye friendly

The ambient temperature in my room isn't very hot,it's about 60 to 70 degrees F.I am worried during the summer months my temperatures will become more unstable.

I am not going to let this issue last much longer since i'm gonna spring for the Corsair H70 water cooling kit.Which fingers crossed will cure the issue

Im assuming the airflow in your case is good too Snorlax?

i.e, Intake at front/side, exhause at back/top?

Honestly,I have had temp issues it seems with every rig i have built.
I do not have a fan in front of the case,However i do have a side fan,
a top fan,And a rear exhaust fan.


I am planning on mounting the H70 radiator in the front of the case in the hard drive bay area which has fan mounts empty which should work with the 120mm fans supplied with the H70 radiator.


I always seem to skimp on case's.I really should have gone with my gut and went with an Antec 1200,These mid size cases it seems always have airflow issues.


I will take pics of my set up and my H70 install,I am in dire need of wire management as well.You die hard guys would surely at my rats nest i call wiring

try reseating with a grain of rice size or pea size of as5 and not spread it at all. let the heat sink spread it.

Thanks for the advice,But as Evil262 said.The Zalman 9500 is not gonna
cool the 955be enough because it is not up to the task of cooling a 125w
processor.


Even if i perfectly spread the AS5 on the processor its still not gonna compensate for the coolers ineffectiveness.
