thanks for your reply and the recommendations
I’ve got a noctua nh c12p which I have with the ulna adaptor which leaves it spinning at about 700 odd rpm.
Experimenting with the orientation of the fan to see which is best. It’s supposed to be blowing on to the heatsink but it seems to be a bit better blowing away from it. Odd huh?
I reseated it using much less of the noctua paste which seems to have a made a small improvement.
I’ve got some artic alumina here. Might try that …
There’s two case fans in my FRactal R3 case but I’ve ordered an extra one so that I can have all 3 running a little slower.
I’ve also opened the vent at the side of the case which increases the noise but seems to keep it cooler.
Does seem odd that it runs so hot when it’s not clocked but hey…if P95 passes I’m happy
Thanks again for replies
