I've used the best buy thermaltake tg7 or whatever they sell at $7 without fail, so I would just pick some of that up instead. Application of the paste is just as important as the paste used.now i don't know what to do lol get mx-4 or not because it is a bit expensive here like 20$ idk why
It's not going to do much since the heatsink is the wrong type. You can run 95w processors under 65w heatsinks, but you must have the fans running 100% for there to be enough headroom. Once the OP has the right heatsink installed, any paste will do like the tg7 I'm regularly using. I even use this stuff on my 95w processor/65w heatsink systems--just got to make sure that fan is running at 100%.If you can't mount any other cooler in that, the MX-4 would be your best choice to get a little bit more efficient cooling
Don't confuse politics with facts. What I posted were facts, not political opinions. If something is made in the usa, there's no problems with fakes and other such shady third world nonsense. This too is a fact.Way to bring politics into this. Could've left the entire first half out, you know.
And how is your dragging this on any longer relevant at all to the OP? At least I was explaining some background on why the OPs ccc paste wasn't doing the job. What value is your post bringing to the topic?Okay and how's that relevant to the problem this user is having? Could've just said to replace that "fake water paste" with something else and be done with it.
Paste won't make as much difference as the right heatsink. Post the HP part number for your system and I'll figure out the proper heatsink for you.Chill guys lol, Actually this paste is not watery now and it is like any other paste but i will buy the mx-4 too in about 1 to 2 days and see the difference
i found arctic mx 2 and 4 but 4 is 3$ more than the mx-2 both are the 2019 edition is there a difference between them because i was getting the mx 2Paste won't make as much difference as the right heatsink. Post the HP part number for your system and I'll figure out the proper heatsink for you.
I'm a bit confused. You say 70c here. But later you cite higher temps. Which is it?So i got an i7 860 today and when it reaches 70c on prime 95 , my pc crashes so is the problem from the cpu or what
It is not a k but it is overclockable i think and it was crashing on 70 bc of the ram not the cpuI'm a bit confused. You say 70c here. But later you cite higher temps. Which is it?
You should be able to run 85->90C all day and night without issue. But keeping it below 80C is advisable for long life.
This chip was obviously used off the market. As this is an overclockable chip, it's possible it has silicon degradation issues from being overclocked, and it was unloaded for that reason. Do you have the option to return it?
This is one reason I'm wary of K chip parts on the market.
You could try adding another fan to blow more air over the CPU cooler with the side panel off and replacing the thermal paste, but there is not much else you can do to make your CPU any cooler. You might reach the Intel stated max safe long term operating temperature of 72C with those changes, but that I doubt it. You also can't easily add an aftermarket cooler to the motherboard if you do have the HP 8100 SFF, because the motherboard doesn't have normal mounting hole distances for a stock Intel cooler or aftermarket cooler.Idk lol someone says 85 is normal someone says under 75
Thank you. Looks like there was only one heatsink--confirm it looks like the one here:
Yea that is what i have, but when i applied my new thermalpaste the mastergelpro temps are better now 84c in prime95, and 70c in gamingThank you. Looks like there was only one heatsink--confirm it looks like the one here:
