    Not CPUs?

    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.

    one more, though kind of a crappy iphone pic

    Asus ref HD 7970
    [​IMG]

    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...

    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.
    Who knows.

    Amazing how fast new tech becomes old. Still serves me well.

    eee-yep.

    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.
