    Ya, I could tell immediately that it was MUCH cooler just by the temps in the room!

    Very surprising for having more cores, I expected similar temps or higher than my 965

    To say the least!

    Can't wait to have time to play, and I really can't wait to have time to get in a dry ice run!

    reseated my 920 and now runs hotter, so i guess i've screwed the TIM installation.. also reseated the NB cooler with the GB supplied silicon paste but still sits at 47 degrees.. so dunno.

    the strange thing i noticed when i removed the cooler was that all the paste had been pushed away from the centre and down the middle was hardly any TIM at all, can't understand why this would be....

    is this expected?

    Are you maybe using too much paste, or not securing it tight enough?

    NB is hot to begin with, that temp sounds normal. Did you mean you did the paste on the actual chip itself, just wondering?

    You mean on your CPU? If so your CPU or heatsink base may be beveled (not flat) which would mean you may need to lap one or the other, or both. But in a way, yes it is kinda normal, depends on how bad it is I guess. Pics?

    will redo again tonight, perhaps too much paste... will take pics and upload tomorrow. i'll clean everything off with Arcticleaner1+2 then and go around again.

    All you need is a small ball in the middle of the CPU, like the size of a small pea (But not as round, so no big glob or anything), just small dot

    Use Dot method I say , but everyone has their own preferences on that. Dot, Line, X, either way will work fine, just don't use too much.

    And if you want better temps get something better than AS5, such as TX-2 or MX-2

    I thought AS5 was the best... :(...
