    Installed Scythe Shuriken on 5050e - Temps.

    I finally got round to installing my new Scythe Shuriken cooler on my 5050e processor and I remembered to get some temps before replacing the stock cooler. One quick question before I start - what's the best way to apply thermal grease (MX2) to a dual core AMD? I know for a C2D you draw a vertical line and on my 5050e I just drew a rice grain sized line horizontally which seems to be doing the job OK but I wanted to check.
    Anyway, here are the temps, load is running Intel Burn Test (Core0/Core1):

    Stock cooler:
    Idle: 20/23
    Load: 55/57

    Shuriken:
    Idle: 20/23
    Load: 46/50

    Also since I had to move RAM sticks to make the cooler fit I did some benchmarks (7zip and Burn Test) to make sure performance remained the same and it was basically the same when result variation is considered ie .1 of a GFLOP in Burn Test.

    Edit: Oops I almost forgot to mention how quiet the Shuriken is! It's audible at boot because my motherboard runs the CPU fan at max to start with (normally after a reboot - a boot after a shutdown normally starts it slow ) but when it's running at normal speed it's extremely quiet - I could barely hear it at all when right next to it!

    Those temps are fine. The main problem with fans being this big is the manufacturers of the main board. Gigabyte for instance out their memory modals close to the processor whereas ASUS always put their memory modals away from the CPU so you can fit a big fan. The only problem here is if you use Corsair memory (for example XMS3 then you are slightly stuffed because the cooler gets in the way.

    Yep I'm using XMS2 so I had to move it to the outer two slots. I know the temps are fine I just posted them as a sort of mini-review.

    I think they're are three versions of the Shuriken, 1, 2 and Big (latest), which one did you get?
