Very high temps after installing CM Hyper TX3. Any ideas? Tags: Heatsinks Cooling CPUs Overclocking Last response: March 24, 2011 9:12 PM in Overclocking Share tastelikecrab March 20, 2011 7:22:30 PM I just installed a CM Hyper TX3 on my i3. I used a glob of MX-4 lobbed on to the CPU pushed it a bit with the nozzle and then Pressed the CPU cooler down on the CPU. I used this to attach the fan on. notice the direction. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9VAXldDk94&feature=rela... That is the direction i used. it is now pointed towards the exhaust fan at hte back of my case (about 2 inches away from it) Also now even my GPU seems to be idling hotter. 33C instead of around 28C to install it I had to mess around a bit with the cooler once I had got it on the board because it's huge on my microatx board (GA H55-UD2H) and my smallish CM335 elite. I'm thinking I didn't apply the TIM right. I didn't leave it to cure either because I've been told this TIM doesnt need it... any ideas?

Temps dropped by about 10C. it's still way too high though. idling at about 37 C and peaking at 80C Any tips?

That okay or would nail polish remover be better? sucks that my stock cooler is actually performing better at this point. tastelikecrab March 20, 2011 9:08:10 PM Becoolbro, you're the man I tried using a line on just the heatpipes and now I've got 56 C peak under Prime95 Much better than stock.

It takes a lot less paste than many of us think. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
