Any movement of the probe when changing compounds or any contamination by the compounds invalidates the results. Not to mention the severe secondary heat path. It’s sad that so many hardware Sites have such terrible test methodology."Hardware monitoring by using a flat thermal probe placed next to the CPU die underneath the shim and HSF
Freeloader said:As I have said, I ran prime95 for 72 hours (3 days). I also tested it with 2 other computers and heatsinks, alpha pal 6035, and a stock pentium 3 heatsink. I also tested it without warming it up first, but the results were all the same. In one test, I ran the hsf at 7 volts to increase the temp and improve curing, but the results were the same. As I have mentioned, I bought 3 tubes so I tried everything under the sun to make my investment pay off.
