i know this sounds crazy but i just got a new case more fans and a new TIM... i have better fans on my rad than i did before, a better case, and according to everyone, a better TIM

i went from 3 tricools + 2 no name LED fans to 3 ultra kazes 3000rpms + 3 coolermaster r4's (for the LEDs)

from an antec 1200 to an 800D

and went from artic silver 5 to MX-3 and my temps went from 35/36 full load to 39/40 full load.... used the same method on each (a drop in the middle and press it down) same block same rad same pump... what happened?

maybe different ambients, + keep in mind the 800D most likely doesn't have the same airflow a 1200 provides, proof me if im wrong but the 800d looks like a pretty closed case of the bet.

i thought of that but im pulling air in from the top and out the rest... even if im running open case the temps are the same... maybe ill try a different mounting method... i was rather excited because i figured i could shave a degree or two off of my previous loud temps

heres a little update... just reseated the mx-3 and got the same results, used some of my old AS5 and got 1-2F lower (i literally just did this) so far with every reaseating here are my temps
S=seat

MX-3 S1: 103f-104f
MX-3 S2: 100f-101f
MX-3 S3: 100f-101f

AS5 S1: 99f-100f

all temps are in F for accuracy, its not a big difference but i expect it to lower a little after the break in... AS5 FTW????? come on!

edit: also its PEAKing at 100f, usually its 98f-99f where the MX-3 was going up to 102 occasionally

Arctic Silver 5 works about as good as any product! I just do not like the 200 hr. curing time.

OCZ Freeze and Arctic Silver 5 are the only ones I use!
