I went and flattened out the base of the D15S, and temps are about 1-2C better than before. It is very clearly making full contact now. Temp under Prim95 is 76C. With video compression (Handbrake) it's averaging 67C. Room temp is 25C, and case fans are linked to the CPU fan speed, so it's moving a fair amount of air. I'm surprised by how toasty these chips are, or else temps are being misreported. I wouldn't find either difficult to believe.

Prime95 heats it up due to AVX2 , so turn off AVX2 when using Prime95. Remember that Zen2 has twice the AVX2 of Zen+ as it no longer combines two 128-bit AVX units and also has less area for the CPU cores (i.e. thermal density 1.5x).

Handbrake with 67 Celsius seems reasonable.

What do you have Handbrake's priority level set at? If at 'normal' or lower it is not using all the CPU it can. Set it to 'high' for maximum CPU load. In Handbrake / Preferences / Advanced / Priority Level (4th down list), set it to 'High' for maximum load.

Be sure you change it back after testing to 'Normal' or 'Below Normal' if you encode while doing other things on computer. Encodes will take longer, but at least comptur can be used.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that bit. Thanks for reminding me. 70C is now the average.

When you milled off the bottom of the NH-D15S , did you remove the nickel plating in the process? If you did make sure you use a thermal compound that doesn't react with the copper.

Indeed, I did, in all but the very corners, to level out the base. True, bare copper does now preclude the use of any gallium based liquid metal, but I'll live, and recently acquired some Kryonaut to try compared to the MX4 or NT-H1.

DAMN, the BIGGEST Thermalright Cooler sitting on what looks like, an Asrock X470 iTX Motherboard model (or similar)?


NICE one there. You really showed them what this cooler can do for the tiniest motherboard's .

If your really keen there are nickel plate kits around though they are probably a bit pricey if this is the only job you would ever use it for.

Also note that Noctua has released NT-H2 which has replaced NT-H1.

Well, I tried a third TS140P, and flattened out the base. It averaged 76C for Prime95, using the same settings in that as before. The main difference is that it's using only one fan (A TY143) and it's on a slower fan curve than the one I used to test the D15, so that's a bit of a handicap for it to achieve the same temps (at a lower noise value) than the D15.

It also takes up less room, and the fan clips are far easier to work with. I'll probably clip on a second fan and see how it does. Good heatsink when it makes good contact.
