I got temps from 50-5 idle, to 62 at gaming with stock heatsink. I bought an vantec one, it was 2 big so i returned it, and got an aerocool heurcules that fits. All copper heatsink, bigger fan then stock, redid with 2 diff pastes and whiped it off good with rubbing alchohol and did it thin, and STILL only 50 degrees celsius!? What am i doing wrong?

Could be that your case tempurature is too high. If you have a nice heatsink, but really bad case airflow your temps will suffer. Putting some fans on the case itself will help dramatically.

I have 5 case fans, and the AUX (i guess thats the whole temp case) is 39, and mobo is 24. The compusa brand compund is more silvery looking like metallic paint, and the 1 that came with heatsink is white and more liquidy, but not much.

well there's one thing you have in common other than relatively high heat sinks...

relatively poor coolers...

research...should have done more...

i know the swiftechmcx and the thermalright are a bit much for most, but there are good coolers out there and the hercules and jet/aero's aren't among them...

basically when you're buying a cpu cooler, look at the rating...if it's rated to 3200+ then it'll do...if it's rated to 3400+ it's a bit better...

if it's rated to 2800+ then you're going to get higher temps cos 60celcius is acceptable for a cpu...may not be great but it's acceptable...

if you want temps in the 40's or 30's then you're looking at volcano 12's or swiftech's or thermalrights or something with a lot more cooling ability...

sorry...

stevo , take the side off your PC, and see if this helps ? If it does then turn one fan blowing in the case and the rest all blowing out of the case. Make sure the fan on the heatsink is blowing down through the heatsink,and not pulling air up through it. But as I said first take the side off the case and see if this helps first ,if so then you know what to do. I leave the side off mine,it runs 8 to 10 deg. hotter when it is on.

But if it gets static wont it ruin it or soemthing? i WAS gonna get the 7 lite, but i changed my mind. If none of these procedures work that is my LAST HSF i will buy.

What is the best way to use your fans? It feels like its blowing out the back and sucking in the front. 2 dans in front and 2 in back.

what are you using steve? the swiftech mcx370 might be an option...good cooling and works with 60mm fans...

http://www.swiftnets.com/

look there although it's under discontinued items it's still around...

if you can say which motherboard/processor you're on i might be able to help..
