hsf noise and heat
« on: November 11, 2002, 01:34:00 PM »

i have a Swiftech heatsink( dont remember the model # but has a copper bottom and is about a year old) with a loud as hell( think its a delta) fan. well the noise is starting to drive me crazy and my heat has gone up since i got it( was 35c with load to 48c with load and 28c idle to 43c idle). ihave cleaned it and added new as3 compound, but still no difference. im not overclocking and im running a tbird 1gig. any thoughts on something quieter and better temps? thanks for any sugestions you might have

Have you cleaned off your 'sink?  Has the case temperature gone up?  Also, AS needs a few days to reach maximum efficiency.  If you're fed up with Swiftech, you could get the ThermalRight SLK-800.  It's heavy though, so don't plan on going to too many LANs.  I am looking for a new heatsink, so I might buy the Swiftech from you if you are selling.

maybe you applied too much AS3? too much of a good thing is bad.

gotta be the paste.
the thinner the film of it the better.
it's only supposed to be like a coupling.
it's doesn't conduct heat well on it's own, so it's only there to fill the microscopic gaps between the HS and the die.
Other than that, you might have developed an internal heat fault. Also you can check to be sure your core voltage is set properly.
