Xigmatek S1284 Archilles issues

I tried installing the heatsink yesterday but looks like the 4 heatpipes are not fully utilized.. it looks too wide. Definitety since lga775 sockets are not so wide, looks like some mis-calculations has been done. I placed the thermal paste evenly across the processor, and placed the heatsink back in.. looks like it used the middle two pipes and half of each from the wide lined pipelines.

Now it seems clear why 3 heatpipes works best on the lga775 socket as the 3 pipes fully come in contact with the processor.. If the 4 heatpipes can be compacted into a size of 3 heatpipes, then Archilles woudl be god like. I will post some pictures up of the archilles, i have great reason to say that its an awesome cooler. Just that the heatpipe placements affect the performance and this makes the S1283 to be better.


As December gets closer, my exams are going to near an end by the mid week of december. I am slowly building up a nice rig for overclocking. At the moment, building it one by one is fun, finally i got the right things after a patient and suffering wait for an whole year. 

Now this are the specifications of my little monster. 
Proc: Intel Dual Core E2140 G0 Stepping cooled by Xigmatek Archilles
Ram: Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2-800 ***.16fd3
Motherboard: Biostar T-Power I45
PSU: Corsair VX550W
Besides that all are the same as before… soon i will be getting some nice points and hobby to play with. 🙂
