    LOL lucky I do not live in Denmark :D . I only put a grain of rice size on there. Spread it out with a plastic bag evenly on the cpu. I cleaned the cpu and block with proper TIM remover and then used a surface purifier to ready the surface. It may be tension related but I will pull it apart and try again.

    With the IFX-14 I had idle temps around 35
    With the stock TIM and before I moved the RAD I had 35-37 idle
    Now I have 44 idle and it was the same last time before i tried AS5

    Sorry if I just jumped in a bit late, but what was it that you just did that your temps raised? Push and Pull and rotated the H50 base?

    Idle temps do not count. What are load temps?

    And double check your fans. You sure you didn't accidentally flip one around the wrong way?

    Yep. I only asked because I've actually made the mistake myself before. It's easy enough to do.

    Fans are both flowing in the same direction. Up and out of the case. Should have kept with the stock TIM lol. AS5 needs time to bed in I know. I will load it up and check temps.

    seems okay

    if you really want a lower temp then you have to get some real watercooling

    Yeah sounds ok. Do you have to rub it back first? What sort of paint enamel or acrilic?
