    Do I have my heat sink installed incorrectly?


    I bought and installed the ARESGAME River 5 CPU Air Cooler and in the reviews for it people are getting 22c for there temps and I'm getting anywhere from 30 to 40c with the same cooler. Any ideas? The cpu I'm using is i5 4590 (should also be mentioned in the specs on my tenforums profile)

    :)

    NVMe M.2 heat sinks

    @Fantail and others -

    I actually suggest to use a NVMe SSD heat sink if you can get it for a good price. SSD's tend to run extremely hot.
    There are also external NVMe SSD USB enclosures that have large heat sinks built in or other serious venting.

    See this -

    Investigation: m.2 Heatsinks, are they worth it? | TweakTown

    These are for even heat dissipation and component prolongation.
    You don't have to buy them but it is a worthwhile investment.

    However, your internal cooling is the most important item.
    Invest in that, too, if the case airflow and temps aren't good enough.

    I agree with @ignatzatsonic. I have 2 NVMe drives in this computer and they usually run around 37-42. I have never had them throttle and have never used a heat sink. I live in Florida, so it is pretty warm here.

    VIA K8M800 Chipset heat sink ?

    Hello
    MSI K8MM-V has a chipset= VIA K8M800 under a heat sink.
    • What is it and should I apply new thermal paste under it ?
    • Overclocker videos always put paste under this. Does it run hot ?
    • What standard size is this heat sink and can I buy like a upgraded copper heatsink to it ? I have seen fanned versions also but what is the size: name type of this heat sink ?
    • So I can look for these in china or ebay.
