Update test result with Arctic MX-4:

Picture 1
Artic MX-4
Ambient Temp:20,1
Idle Temp:28
Load Temp:32

Will now conduct all tests again with OC (from 3.6 GHz to 4.2 GHz)


ASUS Chrosshair Formula IV
Antec KÜHLER H2O 920 with 2 x 120 mm push/pull
AMD FX 8150 BE (Everything at stock for this test)

Tomorrow I will conduct a overclocked test.

Cure times are 2 hours with OCCT LinX pack.

Will test these three compounds: (Picture one)
1. Antec Formula 7 Nano Diamond
2. IC Diamond
3. Arctic MX-4 (will test this tomorrow)

Test method:
1. Heat sink unmounted and cleaned with acetone and at last isopropyl-alcohol.
2. Take pressure test with pressure paper (Picture one)
3. Appy TIM (center dot)

Picture 2
Antec Formula 7 Nano Diamond
Ambient Temp:21,8
Idle Temp:30
Load Temp:35

Picture 3
IC Diamond
Ambient Temp:21,7
Idle Temp:31
Load Temp:34

prolimatech pk-1

Ambient Temps: 21C



IC Diamond 24

LinX testing in diagnostic mode.

Ambient Temps 21C.






Contact Pressure testing with DT Sniper Water Block with IB 3570k.

DT SNIPER Block










Waiting on some new Tygon Tubing and a different back plate for my DT Sniper block and will test again for contact pressure with the paper and do another temp comparison.

Right now PK-1 and IC Diamond look close to the same in terms of thermal performance but the contact paper shows that I got a good mount.

No, pink is all that should show. It's just how much pink is showing. Take a look at some of the other posts in the thread.

I saw that and it shows other colors. There has to be a color code for this paper. Pink is showing a certain amount of pressure. I'm sure there are other pieces of paper like this that pick up other pressures that would show a different color.
Opt33 at overclock.net stated that my contact pressure mount results are nearly perfect.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1268070/dt-sniper-waterblock/80#post_18024755


I'm going top turn the block 90 degrees so that the contact pressure marks are parallel with the cpu die.
think the other colors are a result of " full lab analysis"

Wonder what the full lab analysis process is.
Please use the "multi-quote" button or edit your posts instead of posting multiple times in a row. :toast:

Excelent product, showed just where to lap the Twin Frozr IV. Just goes to show that mass production of the coolers will always yield some that just arn't flat:shadedshu. Going to order a sheet from SP to have around for client custom builds.
In the middle of a rebuild now, But going to try & do the CPU on the Game [specs] Rig later today.

Got the set with contact pressure paper today, the CP paper did not give any pink color tho, only different amounts of opaqueness, rather similar to sample 19A and 20A on the pressure test, but with a small speck about 0,5 cm2 in size at the center. will do some temp test tomorrow.

Edit: Here are the results:

AS5 idle: 38C 39C 40C 39C average: 39C
ICD idle: 35C 34C 36C 34C average: 35C
improvement: 4 degrees C

AS5 load: 71C 72C 70C 70C average: 70,75C (at 35 GFlops)
ICD load: 65C 66C 63C 64C average: 64,5C (at 35.5 GFlops)
improvement: 6,25C

pics for the different run.
thank you for the clearly superior TIM.

Sounds like maybe the sheets were not lined up right. Should be shiney side out for each.

Just ran some tests. Will update with results after the paste has cured. Will do a higher overclock aswell.
Might try applying some ICD on a 580 reference just for the heck of it.

About a 2-3 degree difference which was to be expected. The contact paper has shown that I have a great contact between the CPU and Cooler. This is one thing I was worrying about using this older cooler.

Building library of WB Contact images from our facebook page -Larkcooler CPU WB 500 Water block contact/pressure test. Note this block has a round , rather than a square base - looks like just a couple cm contact

Waiting on some new Tygon Tubing and a different back plate for my DT Sniper block and will test again for contact pressure with the paper and do another temp comparison.

Right now PK-1 and IC Diamond look close to the same in terms of thermal performance but the contact paper shows that I got a good mount.
Missing contact images? I would like to add to our WB library
