Problem with my Chipset fan - high chipset temps.

Recommended Posts

Are there known fan problems with the stock chipset cooler, on the DFI NF4 SLI-DR mobo?

 

My chipset fan was exceptionally noisy over the past few months

It has, however, been inoperative for the past few weeks. With the rising summer ambient temperatures, this is becoming more of a concern for me.

 

When I installed SmartGuardian today, it registered the temperature as 74°C .

Even jus' turning the fan with my finger - to get is started - resulted in a marked downward leap in the chipset temperature to a Smartguardian registered 61°C.

 

Unfortunately, the fan stops working again after 2-5 minutes.

 

Any ideas on a workable resolution to the problem?

Any ideas where to buy the Evercool VC-RE fan in the UK?

 

A google/yahoo search did not turn up any leads...

I can't find a supplier of Isopropyl Alcohol in the UK.

 

What is a suitable alternative product, available in the UK, for cleaning the thermal transfer agent residue from the chip (as specified in the Evercool video, posted on DFI-Street)?

Thanks Kandoo.

 

Jab-tech sent me the cooler today.

 

I'd try the 'Akasa Tim Clean' Dark Horse, but I wonder if there's anything sold in the UK which is closer to the 91% isopropyl alcohol used in preparing the surfaces of both the chip and the cooler (mentioned in the VC-RE installation video) before application of the Artic Silver 5, and positioning of the cooler?

 

What about the 2-step Articlean?! A worthwhile purchase?
