Sweet Jebus man, you were fine at 80/90C don't start this with 70C, lol....
Glad it worked for you. I would have saved the $100 though knowing the temps you had previously are just fine.
Actually I want to start this at 40C. Anyone have any liquid nitrogen I have? LOL!
No, lol, what I meant was that I could reduce my fan speeds more if I allowed the cpu up into the 70s. Thus making my office quieter. That is IF I allow them to get that hot.
Well, for the 100 bucks, peace of mind, and quieter office. Next time I will just buy the more expensive heatsink to start with. haha.
The rig could've doubled as a space heater on those cold winter nights [emoji39]
As I will probably need to replace the thermal paste once a year anyway, I can put the old one back on for winter. hahhahahahaha, but... it doesn't really get that cold here. normally 10-15C in winter. But with the recent news of the sun going into hybernation, it may snow in Taipei!! Scary thought. lol
