Re: Anybody not impressed with Arctic Silver?
I fought that battle. What I discovered was that
Artic Silver is fine. I even applied it a little bit
heavy to make sure no air pockets developed.
The cpu heat will spread it evenly. The real problem
was the air flow in the case .. a generic steel case.
I switched to an Antec SLK1650B with the side
port that lets the cpu fan blow/suck air directly
to the outside, and my cpu temp immediatly
dropped to mid-30s ( from mid-50s ). I tried same
on 5 other boxes .. and got the same good
results. I swear by that Antec case, and now
all my CAD labs are using it no matter what cpu
mobo bundle I use. Side venting makes a big
difference. Also, note that AMD warns everybody
to replace the heat goop as soon as they get
the bundle. Apparently it doesn't have a good
shelf life in the plastic shipping box before the
cpu and fan are installed.

... My son and I replaced the stock Intel CPU cooler with an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7, and that dropped the CPU temp a lot--like from 60 to 40 Celcius--no, that is not a typo or an error, I was very surprised ... It has been a while since I looked at Intel's site about "thermally advantaged" cases, but as I recall, Intel prefers to have an air intake right over the CPU fan, to draw fresh cool air right down into the CPU cooler. ... With your powerful video card, powerful CPU, and a motherboard that spews a lot of heat from the northbridge heat sink, I think it is going to be a little toasty in there. ... The problem lies in the temperature of the motherboard, asus probe II gives an warning when it reaches 45 degrees celcius. ...
