GLUING a CPU Cooler DOWN with SILICONE? Temps Vs. Twin Tower Vs. Budget Cooler

Sometimes going for the best price performance is the only choice, and today is a little experiment that I have danced around in the past… but never taken a proper look at it – and that is bolting down a cooler with Silicone Bond. We are using the x3430 for this experiment coupled with a H55 motherboard as I feel it’s one of the best fit cases for extracting this kind of value out of this kind of fix. And as always the results are interesting :).

Get an X3430 here:
Get an LGA1156 Board here (I found mine at a used store in Thailand, online prices will be more expensive, but this is a better board in the link):
