Upgraded to Hyper 6+

Recommended Posts

The Blue Ice NB heatsink/fan combo had fallen off again. I decided I had enough and installed the original Blue Ice heatsink only.

here's the nb cooler after it fell http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d20/m ... mg1314.jpg

I figured since I had the system out for upgrading I should try to upgrade the cpu cooler too. I instaled the Hyper 6+ - that was no easy task. I had to remove the motherboard from the motherboard tray. I also had to slide the tray back into the case without the motherboard and then install the motherboard.

Finally, the moment of truth. Will the cpu cooler clear with the side panel. It just barely does.

I just got the system up & running this morning, the cpu temp is holding steady at 45C - I expect this temp to drop after the break-in-period.

I would like to get into some overclocking. I'm going to do some reading first and then begin to experiment.

here are some pics ...

There you have it. Hyper 6+ does fit in a Wavemaster.

i'm pretty sure it's sitting on the board properly. I used Artic Silver 5 and according to their website.

Important Reminder:

Due to the unique shape and sizes of the particles in Arctic Silver's conductive matrix, it will take a up to 200 hours and several thermal cycles to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. (This period will be longer in a system without a fan on the heatsink or with a low speed fan on the heatsink.) On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop 2C to 5C over this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is complete, the computer can be left on if desired.

I will keep an eye on the temperature for the next couple of days. If it doesn't drop, I'll double check it.

45 C IS A LIL WARM ... srry stupid caps button ... are you sure that thing is sitting on the board properly ?

He's got a P4 so don't read too much into that. My AMD (not OC'd right now) idles at about 40 so it's not that bad really...

What were the temperatures like with the stock Intel heatsink?

Well, I wasn't using the stock intel heatsink. I was using the X Dream III and the temperature was around 48C idle.

Like I said earlier, I will monitor it & if it doesn't go down, I'll double check.

Good that it fits man! :)

What is the coolest cpu temp around here by people here?

Mine is idle at 33c, room temp 20. If room temp is 15 (it's winter here) then my cpu is 25-28 idle.

for today, the cpu is still hovering around 45.5C - the fan is spinning around 1900rpm. the temp for the SYS and PWM is 30C & 32C respectively.

perhaps this weekend I'll open up the system and double-check. I'm retracing the steps I took to install the cpu cooler and think I know where I may have messed up. I applied the artic silver on the heatsink and not on the cpu itself. do you think that's what causing the odd temps.

for air with a hyper 6+ sits round 30-36 c ideling amd and pentium alike ..

It's never cut and dry like that. CPU cooling depends on the airflow in your case, ambient temperature of the room, fan capability etc. Seeing as how misterLOBY has a WaveMaster I am not surprised that his temperatures would be higher.

Apply the AS5 on the processor's heatspreader, not the heatsink itself. That could be a problem with it. Here are the instructions on applying AS5.
