Maybe I can't count, but that looks like 8 to me.
I guess maybe I should stop drinking, evrything is becoming blurry...
this will mainly be used for crunching, and sometime soon i should be collecting some 4-5xx cards to fold on, so idc what chip is on the board
Not me. Doesn't make too much sense for us 6 core x58 guys. I'll hold out for SB-E 8 cores.
hmmmmmmm. stay on topic guys.
hmmmmmmm. I'll listen to demands from you when you become a mod. Until then, you can ask us nicely to stay on topic.
Your being oversensitive.... he did ask nicely
sigh. anyone has pics to post? i would appreciate it very much.
not the best, but i like blue lights lol
got new toy
plz through your stock coOler away. its destroying the ambience
Ok I swear this is the last of those lapping pics... I really thought I uploaded ALL the better images of the job but here's a few more
I've just realised something and all I have to say is... I could of cleaned the rig before the photo's!
lol i might just go ahead and lap the i7 930 that isnt doing anything atm
I think you should... the pic's you'll post will be worth it alone
lol, youre funny dude! from what i have heard from you, youre not better than him!
Since we're posting lap pics...
I bought a used i7 920 that had a dent in the middle of the IHS. Couldn't bare to use it that way...
You can see in the second pic the small spot near the center of the IHS. Even after lapping it perfectly smooth to 2000 grit, I still did not get it all out.
It begs the question do CPU manufacturers actually pay any attention to people who lap their CPU's do they realise that we do it for a reason and if that reason is good enough why don't they just make their IHS's better by you know making them smooth and flat
Because we're such a small portion of the consumer base. Even I have only done this to one CPU, though I've done a ton of heatsinks. Besides, the way they make the IHS works perfectly fine for stock, so they can't justify it.
Maybe adding it to a top-of-the-line chip, but not anything else. It's pointless for them. Too bad...
Dammit, you old monkey, you are ruining the troll.
No he didn't ask nicely. There was no please. Even my 8 year old niece knows to say please when she wants something.
My old definition......
Nicely = Even tone, no offence
Politely = please, thank you
unpleasant = red mist descending
offensively = red mist engulfed, ban in the making
yes but atleast mines a 4 heat pipe stock cooler not a piece of aluminium!
