TIM is Behind Ivy Bridge Temperatures After All

Discussion in 'News' started by btarunr, May 12, 2012.

?

Should Intel release a new IVB revision to address temperatures?

  1. Yes, more OC potential is needed

    That's true, it's a quick thing to design.

    Your AMD pic reminds me of when I tried buying a shim for my Athlon XP. I put it on, put the paste on and then the heatsink... and the CPU nearly burned up through lack of proper contact. That particular bit of metal found itself in the bin in no time flat.

    Oh some homemade job? Thought so, because these won't be mass produced, which is what I was talking about. Hence the R&D reference.

    cheap to make, and worth their weight in gold to people on watercooling after de-lidding their IHS

    If you tried to buy it, how did it get on your CPU? :p

    Weird that people did that. I had to google back to 2002-2007 to see any reference of it.

    its been a while since we've needed (or even been able to) remove an IHS. i did it on my socket 939 systems to replace the TIM, iirc.

    Why not just delid, apply better paste, then relid, rather than go right for direct contact at the risk of damaging the die? Just curious.

    for the same reason we dont stack heatsinks on top of each other, better temps.


    i did replace the TIM and re-lid, but i tested without and had better temps. i just didnt want to leave it that way, since i moved my system a lot to LAN parties.

    What kind of temps were you getting with it on versus off?

    since i was on air, about 3-5C. had i been on water, i bet the difference would have been larger.

    Eh? :confused: An Athlon XP dates from 2003, so I'm talking about a decade ago, lol. Dang, TPU didn't even exist then!

    xeon ivy bridge may have gpu part on die, but it will be disabled on most models, so you will save some temperatures and tdp
    making xeon ivy bridge best alternative for i7/i5 "without K" models
    especially for i5 models, because most xeons have HT, and i5 don't

    good for overclockers with heart, and bad for stock buyers, that dont want to cut their IHS:laugh:

    its good to see data which doesnt tally with what intel is saying but i want more data before i an convinced.

    You have just changed my upgrade plans completely. I had forgotten about the Xeons entirely.

    and xeon has 8mb cache compared to 6mb that i5 has

    xeon ivy bridge release date is tomorrow

    but they was fabricated for some time, asian market already have them

    so it is still a big question what thermal solution they have inside

    I felt this was a good move actually. Overclocking took effort. I see it like this go big or go home

    I hope some bean counter's head will roll! Unacceptable for Intel to cut quality on a new launch.

    I don't get the aversion to using shims. Re-lidding the CPU is very inefficient compared to direct touch. Anyways we all did that shimming thing back in the day, and I'm willing to bet most people here didn't have any problems.

    Those old Athlon XP/Duron days were awesome.
