Gregger Posted January 21, 2006 Posted January 21, 2006 Your Swiftech is a good all around sink. If you want to continue running at 2200 mhz, don't change it. If you want higher speeds, I'd consider water because the Typhoon is extremely heavy. (It is a good sink and extremely quiet) Are you using a shim under the sink? If so, check the installation and thickness. Also, verify the sink is installed properly by removing the sink carefully and inspecting the imprint the core left on the sink. Should be uniform. On the install, use Artic Silver 5 (or substitute) for thermal conductivity. Do not install dry. Which way are your case fans blowing? In order to get the best cooling, you need the lowest ambient temp. One thing to try is to remove your case side door and install a table fan blowing against the mobo. If temps drop a lot, your airflow through the case is not the best. Can you get your hands on a thermal probe? If so, verify the temp you have recorded on your software before making changes. You might have a temp recording issue. CPU Idle works well. I'm using it and typically drop my idle temps by 6 - 8 degrees C. Does not affect benchmarks running in the background.
