Jet 7


Recommended Posts

I have a cooler master i think it is a jet 7, on my amd 2000. It is just oced to a 2100 at the moment. But the temps are crazy Gigabytes easytune says that my temps are 50 degrees celcius at idle. i am using arctic silver 5 thermal compound also. Why is it getting so hot?

You might of put too much AS5 on the processor... I know that even the smallest amount extra can really mess with your temps... I dont know how well a blower fan cools but from what i read on a recent post, blowers dont cool as well (i would think different but thats the news on the street)... I think that there might be too much AS5 on it.

i just covered the center of the diode when i applied it because i knew that when that massive heatsink got put on top of it, it would spread it out. I have a 80mm fan blowing out of the back of the case and 1 blowing in from the front and a sunon 120 mm fan blowing out of the case. <----that is on my side panel.

 

I have no idea what is causing it

 

i looked from bios and it reads at around 50 or 51

that isn't that hot, my 2nd rig, an AMD XP 2100+, has temps @ 63C idle!! and around 80C load!! Don't worry unless your system keeps on crashsing.

Thats way to hot, my 2100+ idels at 35c and under load is 42c and that with a taisol heat pipe useing a silent 60mm fan.

 

I agree with other people probibly to much AS5 and what i have read, the jet 7 dosent cool all that well to begin with.

A friend of mine's comp is that hot too. I haven't seen the HS type or fan setup, but I still thing that the 60C on it is just a little hot :P

Another possibility is an air pocket. Did you twist a degree or two a few times and did you press down a bit?... that's supposed to spread it while also eliminating pockets.

 

I'm thinking that too much AS-5 would not lead to temps literally that bad (I'm a clutz with AS-5... I slop it on like gravy.. not literally, but more than a rice grain), but even a small air pocket near the center would be bad news.

Because you didn't read the directions. Go back to www.arcticsilver.com and read them this time. You are to use about "1/2 the size of a bb". Any more than that and you are insulating the chip with your thick goop.
