    Glad to hear that your mobo survived its traumatic concussion.

    How much paste did you apply?
    Did you apply a very thin line of paste or did you use a single dab the size of a grain of rice in the center of your cpu?
    What brand of paste are you using? Some types require up to 200 hours to fully cure where you provide frequent on/off heating/cooling cycles.
    Have you thoroughly cleaned off the former paste from both surfaces using denatured or isopropyl alcohol? My preference is denatured alcohol.

    Depending on the type of paste, slightly more may be required.

    Like my Thermalright T-rad2, the TrUE's base isn't smooth, it's slightly textured.

    To avoid any slight mistakes in orientation of lines of paste, you can do a test aplication using the traditional blob method. Use a blob just slightly larger than a grain of short grain rice, in the dead centre of the CPU. When you seat the cooler, twist from side to side slightly to help spread the paste.

    Bear in mind that if using AS5 it will take some time for the interface material to cure, and at the end of this period temps can fall by as much as 5c.

    To check your aplication of paste, apply what you thing is the right ammount, screw the sink down tight, then remove it again and examine the two surfaces. you should just be able to see the metal through the TIM on both surfaces in all but the thickest of pastes. AS5 is very dark compared to something like MX-2 so use your own judgement on thickness of the layer.

    A slow(ish) return to low idle temps can be normal, and could be due to ambient temps. During the slight heatwave over here in the UK, this was much more pronounced for me. It took some time for my temps to return to normal. Case temperature is also a big factor in this. Enabling SpeedStep can greatly reduce the time taken for idle temps to return to normal, as well as sometimes reducing over all idle temperatures.

    I found the following article a fascinating read, and it helped me sort out my TIM aplication: Best Thermal Paste Application Methods | best thermal past application,thermal paste application methods,thermal compound,thermal interface material,best practices,Best Practices for Thermal Interface Material Paste Application Methods and Thermal Gr

    As you have found out, the combination of good TIM aplication and using the correct mounts, well tightened can turn a great cooler into a not so good one. Let us know how you get on.

    The temps sound the same as mine devoh.

    I am 10hrs stable with Prime Large currently and still running...

    Now I fully understand why you want the 120 copper!! It has the second best thermal conductive metal.. only surpased by silver.. mmmmmm a solid silver heatsink.....<drool> Thanks for the article. Now to lap or not to lap...

    It passed 13hrs Prime Large (480x8.5) so for a laugh I decided to try 500x8

    Without changing anything else than the FSB it wouldn't boot so I upped the MCH Core to 1.24V and so far it has passed 20x trials of IBT (v2) and a 1hr OCCT Linpack session.

    Ok since you guys must enjoy my stories...

    I kept retesting/changing my TIM and heatsink so many times that I emptied my tube of MX-2... lol The plunger is deceptive on where it will end.

    I didn't think my AS5 had enough left in the tube to do it... The plunger was almost all the way in.. but it did, just barely. Guess what.. I think it lowered my temps 2 degrees (with the switch to AS5) and all before it has had a chance to cure.

    I am using D-and-W's 4.08Ghz template.. and now I'm at...

    7 loops of IBT............................................... ... 69
    Prime95 custom torture with in place FFT's......... 59
    Idle.............................................. ............... 40

    room ambient is 26.667 degrees

    Maybe the 60 CFM fan on my 120 cooler is not enough... "I need more power Scotty" Wait.. no I need less power, but more speed!!

    Lapping my HSF resulted in a 0C decrease in my temps.

    And I used the Broadway method of application... that is to say, thick and heavy just kidding. However, I applied my paste in a blob about 1/4" in the center of my CPU, attached it to the mobo, then removed it and checked the spread. I was satisfied with it, so I cleaned it thoroughly and reapplied the same amount. At 4.608GHz my idle temp was 38C and my load temp was 56C --- on air.

    Yep, lapping can give varied results. For example lapping an already flat surface will give minimal gains, maybe a couple of degrees at best. If you have an obviously concave/convex/uneven surface however it can work wonders.

    Take a razor blade and lie it blades edge down onto the surface you're thinging of lapping. If you can either rock the blade back and forth, or see a gap in the middle between surface and blade, lapping could offer good improvements.

    If you're going to do it though, be careful. A motherboard may survive a knock or two if you're lucky, but a processor is much more fragile. Use the plastic cover the CPU came with if it was an OEM or half of the plastic case thing if it was a retail version. Apply pressure evenly and only in the area of the circular pin contacts, not the fragile components in the centre.

    Start with a low grit rough paper first, and don't use any water or oil. I had the easiest time using 600 grit followed by 800, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1600. Tape the paper onto a thick piece of glass. An uneven sanding surface will obviously give an uneven lapping. Light circular motions stripped the nickel off the easiest, and at the smothist grit, sanding in a line gave the best finish. If you're lapping you may as well go for a mirror finish, it only takes another 20 minutes or so.

    Lapping a heatsink is much more awkward due to its shape. Be careful not to bend the fins. Obviously remove the fan and the mounting mechanism first. Don't be tempted to try and remove the copper base, some have screws there but removing it can screw up the joint between base and heatpipes. A small amount of water or sanding oil is permissable when lapping a HSF as you may find due to its weight it sometimes leads to a jerky sanding motion. Try not to sand too much of the base away, as this can result in reduced contact pressure to the CPU. Sanding too much copper away could require modification of the mounting mechanism or the addition / thinning of washers etc.

    Is that a mistype?? 4.6Ghz and load is only 56?? What did you load it with? What is the cooler? What kind of TIM? volts/specs please
