Your next sexy pic gotta be screenshots of CPUz showing these running!
WHen I get time, I will pop the top on the new chip after testing. It will NOT be covered in a review though. I am probably the only person who doesn't care about temps and the TIM used under IHS like everyone else, so it's definitely NOT a priority.
Current 3770k is running 4.6ghz with 1.18 V, loads @ max 75c in Prime95, ran it for 24 hours, using Noctua NH-C14 with just the top fan in place. ALso running 2x 4GB @ 2400 MHz, with VCCSA boost from 0.95 V to 1.05 V. I've psoted screens somewehre on here already.
i popped the ihs off mine last night but no pics
but it did drop the temps 1.4v 4.8 wprime 1024m before would hit 90+ now its under 80c...... and going to ln2 it again hope for more mhz
Another, to give size perspective:
You can send that to me when you're done with it, Dave
Got a new camera, ain't i.
Is that a Murder Mods' Serpentine front panel or custom?
TIM of my first Sapphire ref HD 7970, looks a bit excessive...
and TIM of my second Sapphire ref HD 7970 after RMA, excessive much?
"Jim, the chip is still hot!"

one more, though kind of a crappy iphone pic
Asus ref HD 7970
Seems a little better on the TIM, though it looks like it's been reapplied. You can see an outline of paste that's not there, suggesting it's been cleaned before. I can't say for sure since I bought this used off [H], but the seller claimed that cooler was never removed...
is it just me or does the TIM used just look shite from it dried out look to it's overuse on all 3 of those GPU's
I agree they don't look so great, but I don't think it has to do with overuse.
The first pic was taken about 2 weeks after receiving when I put the waterblock on, and I bought it a week or so after launch. The 2nd was my new card back from RMA which was lightly used and rarely gamed with.

I wish I had a macro lens but this is the best I could do:
Amazing how fast new tech becomes old. Still serves me well.
New tech isn't "old" until it's EOL, and new 5 series cards are still being released
I have "a lot" of pleasure and productivity with the system in my specs and I definitely would not call it old. Even though "a lot" of new tech has been released since 2008.
If that's not old then what do you say about this:
Old? Maybe. Nostalgic, but of course
Check out my Sys Specs! Your still a 'Youngin!" LOL
