did you use the stock thermal paste? when i tried to use it on another heatsink, it was very thick. I use MX 3 and AS5
Like i say, some of the E6xxx cpus ran hot. hell my Q6600 ran cooler then my e6600. Just progress I assume.
i used ic diamond 7 compound but not sure how much 50lbs of pressure feels like but it kinda felt like i got the thermal paste on good kinda sank it down then moved the whole heatsink to what feels like the whole cpu surface
65 C load temps are fine for any of the Core2 CPU's.
Did you use a very small amount of thermal paste (something like a grain of uncooked rice or so). The new version of the Hyper 212+ does not have 'extra paste channels', so you should apply the paste like you do for any other cooler.
For real? its perfectly flat now?
Sorry for thread jack, but i have 2 more on order. cant say no to $20 for them. and i promised one to a friend already.
I think so, though it could have changed again (or they forgot to machine the bottom of mine). I have 3 Hypers, and every one of them is different
