i just installed my Scythe Infinity with the Scythe 28dBA 63CFM, also got 1x 63CFM Scythe and 4x 80mm as case fans. idle is 50C and 100% load is 75C using TAT and CoreTemp. My low quality aftermarket cpu fan with only 4x 80mm case fans idles at 40C and 53 100% load. Currently running a E6300 at stock!<br />
<br />
i think i didnt mount the Infinity right but i dont know how to remove it cause the pins is right under the fins and its very difficult to place my finger on the pins to turn it and remove. Also, the northbridge heatpipe is blocking the way so its even harder to remove the Infinity! i got a Asus P5B Deluxe WIFI, someone tell me how to remove the Infinity please??!?!

You either put too much thermal paste or it's seated wrong but I can't help past that as I have never used the mounting clips for an LGA 775 mobo, maybe you have to remove the motherboard and pinch the ends of the plastic things?

Use needle nose pliers to grip the black ends and turn them. I'm pretty sure you can't pinch the clips from the bottom. There's a little black pin the goes between the 2 halves of the clip to keep them from pinching. That's the beauty of the system.<br />
<br />
It really isn't hard with pliers.

thanks for the replys, i will try it tomorrow using the pliers. could the temp be something wrong with the heatsink? or theres no such thing as faulty heatsink? once i opened it out the box, i noticed theres a few little tiny tiny holes on copper part where you place it on top of the cpu, i dont know whats it called so i think its been used and returned to the store and they re-stocked it?<br />
<br />
Also with fans, which way is pull and push? i got the Scythe fan, one side is with sticker and other is blank black. if i face the side with sticker to the heatsink, does that mean its pulling the air out from the heatsink or pushing air into the heatsink?

</div>How did you put the heatsink compound on the CPU heatspreader. With the new dual cores, the Arctic Silver 5 people are suggesting you start with the little triangle on your left, and you put a vertical, top to bottom line right down the middle. Perhaps someone has the link?<br />
<br />
A dumb question maybe, but, did you remove the plastic from the bottom of the Infinity? I almost forgot to do that myself. Still building mine, will start it up tonight....I'm hoping I don't get the same temps as you!!

Follow this video on how to properly apply AS5. And the plastic is on the bottom of the copper base.<br><br>

me "See how shiny it is on the bottom? that means it transfers heat better!"<br><br>
girlfriend "is that blue stuff supposed to be there?"<br><br>
me "what blue stu--, ohh...wow....woooops...."<br><br>
I nearly did it too.<br><br>
I hope the plastic didn't melt onto the CPU heat spreader!

I wouldnt be suprised if it did in fact melt as its easily 100F in there. If it did you are gonna have a heck of time removing it all from the CPU. I think it would have gotten hotter though and there would be a smell coming from it.<br><br>

gosh! problem solved, yes i forgot to remove the plastic sticker at the base of the heatsink haha. im actually suprised the temps wernt higher when the base of the heatsink has no contact with the cpu at all with the sticker still on! once the plastic sticker was removed, temps now are 30C idle and 42C 100% load on both cores using TAT, stock E6300! so i consider that as pretty good? this proves that stupid questions sometimes help people solve their problems <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick out tounge caps" class="inlineimg" /><img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick out tounge caps" class="inlineimg" /> Thanks alot guys!!!!

heh i almost did the exact same thing! with the same cooler too ^^<br><br>
but i bet that plastic has a high melting temp just incase this happens <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> so thats not to much of a problem <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

</div>Yeah, when I was pulling that thing off...it was extremely taught and very strong. Very thin but very strong. That's good thinking on Scythe's part, to protect the flat part that rests on the CPU with a thin but strong plastic

i had the same prob on my artic cooler 7 it would spin at a 2700 rpm with temp in 56 and when i took off some of the thermal compond and set it in anoter diretion when the fan spun at 2700 rpms it had readings of 18 c and 19 c idle so u might whant to look into the thermal coumpond
