naked 4000 and xp120, good or bad idea

Discussion in 'Overclocking & Cooling' started by psychomage343, May 30, 2007.

  1. i've had a naked 3500 under water for a while but i've not yet tried an air cooled rig with a naked cpu, was wondering if i removed the ihs from my cpu would it be bad to put the xp120 on it, the thing is not that heavy and it's pretty well attached, i just don't want to do anything to drastic or potentially damaging to my cpu, right now i'm at 32c idle and 42c load on a 4000 at 3.14 1.525v? let me know what you think?

    I wouldn't. It's heavy and cumbersome to get on and may screw up your proc. anyways. Plus, I hear many of the blocks are convex, which may further add to the possibility of cracking your cpu in two.

  3. you have a good point the block is not convex though i've lapped it flat and am sure i could get it mounted without actually tilting it onto the cpu i could actually go ahead and physically set it on there straight and hope for the best.. besides i was just reading my first post, are my temps really that bad given the oc?

    @ 1.525V I'd say pretty awesome!
