What CPU do you have?

Hyper 212 evo
This is a very good cooler for a good price

re: Memory Dump blue screen when playing Witcher 2


what kind of OC do you have on that CPU? if you don't have an OC, it must be a thermal paste issue because there is no reason to be hitting 85c in 30 seconds at stock even with the stock cooler, shitty case, shitty fans. if its not thermal paste I would be a bit worried about that cpu altogether.

how old is the build?

3-4 months. There was no thermal paste. It was just a snap-in fan.

None? No thermal paste between the CPU and the heatsink?

surely he means that pre applied film? i have never ever heard of a stock cooler not having ANY thermal paste. either way, that is a good place to start as the pre applied stuff sucks. order some thermal paste, wipe the old stuff off with high percentage ETOH, and see what happens after reapplying.

Done on a daily basis.

Sometimes he calls me daddy when I do it. It's kinda weird.

This is the fan. It doesn't come in direct contact with the CPU itself. It sits on those four prongs and hovers right above the CPU and pushes the heat up and away from the CPU. It's the fan that came with it.

inb4: Shitty cord management.

I also may go ahead and pull the trigger on a full tower. As you can somewhat see by that pic, my rig is stuffed in that mid tower like sardines. Not good for general airflow.

The only reason I can't run it on ultra is the heat issue. The framerate while on ultra is flawless. It just heats my whole rig up.

It still kinda pushes the envelope when you take the settings one step down, but it doesn't crash so there's that.
