Re: "Solutions"

It there a fix to the problem? Can I just add Thermal Compound to the existing parts?

Re: "Solutions"

New Thermal Compound seems to have done the trick:

The stock CPU has a spongy pad (never seen a compound like that in my computing days) My best guess is the clearance between the heat-sink and the CPU was greater than they wanted and this thicker sponge type compound was used as a fix.

I took the original sponge compound and removed it, then I took normal thermal grease and put on a thick layer for the CPU and the contact point on the heat-sink... that seems to be more than enough for solid contact.

I also put a little bit of oil in the fan centre, I just dripped 2 drops of oil from my electric shaver oil lol

Once you have the heat-sink screwed on nice and tight take a peak from the side and make sure you have good solid contact.

From there I put Humpty Dumpty back together and the fan has not kicked in ONCE :-) or maybe it has and i cant hear it?

CPU temp is around 45-50 deg, and even running a stress test on the CPU i cant get it over 55 deg. I'm a little worried i forgot to plug the CPU fan back in as i cant hear a thing lol so double check that step (im not taking it apart to find out lol ill just keep an eye on the temp)

FYI... speedfan is a great CPU temp program
