v7 with v9 parts - overheat?
v7 with v9 parts - overheat? –
I replaced the v7 metal cover/heatsink with a v9 one because the v9 has a bigger heatsink. I also put arctic silver 5 thermal compound on the thermal pads for better contact. Then I replaced the loud v7 fan with a silent v9 fan.
I also have a hard drive in the system, will it overheat? So far it's been smooth sailing, but does a v7 mobo/cpu produce more heat than a v9?
I assume no because the v9's rating is 93watts compared to 79watts for the v7.
