i5-750 w/ Spinq VT @ 50C Degrees - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I would remount the cooler. Especially if 2 cores are almost 20*C hotter than the other two.

Well your only option if you still want to work on it is to re-seat it again, preferably with some high quality thermal paste like AS5.

Clean both the CPU and cooling plate on the spinQ with alcohol. I would recommend you keep the cpu installed in the board while cleaning it to prevent the old thermal compound from getting on the pins.

Squeeze a pea-sized dab of paste on the middle of the cpu.

Plop the cooler down on top, make sure to align it as you go, and tighten it down. Don't lift it up once it's made contact, if you do that it may be necessary to re apply the thermal compound.

And thats pretty much the textbook way to apply thermal paste. I would do that in order to be 100% sure the temps are normal.




Please don't take offense at this....but you removed the plastic film from the spinQ's plate before you installed it, right?

Nononononono. AS5 is mediocre at best among todays top pastes, not to mention it has a 200 hour curing time. I would suggest some Shin Etsu X23, Arctic Cooling MX3, or Noctua NT-H1.

Or if you want to go balls out you can also get Indigo Xtreme.



Here's a pretty graph to show you what pastes are the best. As you can see AS5 is right near the top, which ironically is the bottom in this graph.
