|Here half of the exhaust fan is completely blocked by the heat sink, the other half sucking the same air the cooler is trying to pool in. reducing the effectiveness of both fans to move air. There is no where for the air to go after it passes threw the heat sink, except to go up the back side of the graphics card, and right back threw the cooler again... a so called circle of death.||Here the exhaust fans can only get air squeezed from below the heat sink, after it has to completely change direction. top that with the coolers intake being flush up against the side cover of the case.|
Brisbane ALL Stock Speeds&V about 21C (70F) room temp, idling at
over 71C (160F)... Idling on the BIOS screen! System refused to boot to
any desktop, till the over temp protection was disabled. then would
only function at the desktop for a few minutes before locking up solid
to the point the reset and power switch on the front of the
computer failed to function. Turn the heat sink around 90degrees by
placing the case on it's front bezel, and system runs under full
prime95 (two instances AKA dual core mode) load indefinitely at under
60C (140F). Place the case on it's side as if it was a cake-box, and the temps drop another three to five degrees Celsius.
Right; the same cooler is keeping a 2GHz single-core soc754 CPU at 35C (95F) or less under ANY load.
