The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 67

post #661 of 3854
Can you guys let me know if these are normal temps on my 2600k with thermalright SA:

Haf X case with all the fans running max
Room temp around 70-75
4.5 ghz and fixed vcore at 1.305 but spikes up to 1.33 during load
Prime95 12+ hours ~ 3x cores are 55-62 and one reached as high as 68

I don't know if my GPU has something to do with it (Frozr III GTX 570) or should I just try reapplying MX-4 paste and reseating the SA again?

Welcome to OCN! Fill out your sig rig specs! Your airflow could have a hand in your temps as well as TIM application. How much TIM did you use and what is your current airflow setup? Do you have negative or positive pressure? Also check out this thread for more tips/advise. Air cooling is all about airflow.

By much better you mean 1-2 Degrees or I am reading the results wrong?

1-2c can mean a big difference depending on what you're trying to achieve. I went with the SA originally due to how well it performed and how quiet it was. I especially liked the SPCR review. If you haven't already follow the link in the OP and check it out. They cover everything from temps to noise in great detail.

It's still very nearly the best. There's another cooler that edges it out. It's kind of an optimized D14. But the edge is only decisive passively (no fans). Which is a good thing since they didn't learn the most important lesson of the Silver Arrow: PWM fans.

MUCH better. Did you check out the reviews posted in the OP?
TIM - I used a pea size application and just moved the Silver Arrow around to kind of spread it out before I bolted it in. 68 was the max temp that showed up in real temp but when I came home, that same core had like 63-64 at the end of the 24hour Prime95. All the others were around 55-60.

My Haf X is just using the default fans in its' default orientation - I just added a Megaflow 200 on top and an AP-14 in the VGA duct for the video card. I checked your link I wouldn't mind taking out 3x 5.25 bays for a 120mm fan, changing the top fans to intake, but modding the back just sounds like a headache...

I just double checked my temps again (was running small FFT just to test something):


The hottest core has about a 10 ish degrees difference in comparison to 2 of the other cores - is this normal? Just feels like a portion of the CPU isn't getting any love from the thermal paste

When you say pea size you don't mean that literally right? That's alot of TIM. I used a really small grain of rice amount and others have done similar with excellent results. You don't have to cut out holes in your case but the right airflow will definitely help.

Intel users care to comment on his temps?

Ugh lol... I probably shouldn't have taken the pea-sized application literally then.

Btw I got a bit confused with the diagram of the ideal fan config on Haf X. Apparently I thought he modded it so that there was another fan between the top exhaust and PSU... just turned out to be the side intake.

Looks like I'll have some experimenting to do. Sucks I spent so much time zip tying and cable managing
