A good 20 minutes of the install was me just sitting there lightly rubbing down the cpu to make absolutely sure the as5 was off of the processor completely. I could have probably taken out the mobo and made life easy but that is not my way XD.
As for tightening with just your hands it is very possible that it could have caused that. With every AIO I've installed I've always tightened as far as I can with my hands and then turned 1/4 turn to make sure and have always gotten decent temps with them.


I will use a screw driver at the end - to make sure hope it works this time - should be getting my board next week towards the end -

While this is true with the kinda usage I normally see about a hlaf hour to and hour of prime tells me the highest temps I will ever see. only other thing I run that causes 100% cpu usage is folding (need to re-install again but might start boinc), but even when I was running that 24/7 it never went above 44c on the stock cooler.

Fair enough dude! For me, I would experience huge spikes in temps after 3hrs
post #2854 of 6063
How much of a spike are you taalking about? I normally only do 20-30mins also. I like to use my pc you know?

However I did run Intel Burn Test overnight two nights ago (40 runs All/Maximium memory). Core temps were ~50C after say 10 minutes or so but then I went to sleep. When I got up it was on pass 37 and finished all 40 after around 30more minutes with a max core temp of 55.3C.

I agree with totally dubbed that several hours is best for finding total stability and max temps but I'm also on the "like to use my computer" bandwagon, where I find constantly stress testing for several hours to be annoying.

Well for me there's a point of:
"I want to use my PC"

To:
"I want to make sure I don't fry or damage my PC"

As I play safe than sorry, I make sure everything is running fine, before going ahead and damaging anything.

As for spike...
Well let's just put it this way:
30c at idle
45c after a 1-2hr session of MP BF3
60c on P95 with my antec 920 after around 30mins
92c on P95 after 12hrs

Realistically you can see I'll never go that high in temps, but, just in case I do (which again will never happen) - I know that my cooler is properly done, and can cope with the TJ max.

I know 92c is VERY hot - but...I haven't managed to make it cooler.

Cut the lid off that bad boy and put some Cool Labs Liquid Pro on it!

And I see your point but I just don't do it that way. When I stress test I run IBT for an hour and it gets even hotter than Prime95 large FTT after several hours. I still do prime95 runs and sometimes I'll let it run all night but its really only after I've tweaked a bunch and want to be 100% sure my voltage is stable. Temps have not been an issue for me since I delidded.

I will probably end up unlocking the 5th core and seeing what kinda temps I get with an overnight run of the P95. The only thing that worries me is that it would appear that the system will downclock to 800Mhz instead of keeping it at 2.9Ghz

Oh yeah IBT on extreme really pushes it.
But I ran P95 for 12hrs -> for OC'ing stability rather than temps smile.gif

BTW I am LOVING these Corsair SP-120s, I credit you for turning me on to them. Good buy for sure, get them $20 for the pair and used the Newegg $20 gift card from my i5-3570K.
