it doesnt show the cooler, just "swiss art of engineering"
well, could be the contact surface is not completely flat. seems to be the deal with my pipe101. i just dont know how to lap it to make it completely smooth so i cant help you. maybe try some arctic silver???? heard it has good conductivity, and it will prolly help.
WHOA not even TOUCHING IT!!!! ide advise u to take it off right away or if u can tighten it. what i would do is find plastic washers or something nothing metal though and try and stiff if u can force some pressure on it. if it doesnt work or u cant find any order thermal paste and glue the thing on and see if that helps. if not it could be defective and the shaved it down to much so u might have to return it.
Bought some thermal paste today and added a decent amount. Then managed to tighten it alot more than I could before. All is good now Running at a lovely 41C And in games not going above 50, so Im happy now.
