Couldn't find the image of him from the Futurama episode "Three Hundred Big Boys" where Fry buys a cup of coffee and Nixon says, "smells good!"
Turns out this image is actually more fitting.
Poor doggy got scared.
Moving from my 1090T to a 3930K and my my D14 took the 1090T out of the socket... Had to use a hairdrier to get it off, ha.
Never happened to me.
If the system has cooled completely one might need to twist the cooler to break the seal. You might also take a close look for bent pins if the socket lock was in the closed position.
usually I hit the fins of the HSF with some heat (hair drier does a good job) before I use a gently twisting motion to break the seal and remove the HSF
but lucky for you MP it doesn't look like it bent any pins
lol its actually funny cpu doesn't want let go of that cooler
those chips stick to the heatsinks all the time. i tend to use a pin or razor blade to break the seal, then a drop of two of articlean to loose it up right away. greatly reduces the twisting effort required.
The best thing to do is run some kind of CPU stress program to heat it up for a few minutes, then power it down and pull the heatsink.
Nothing really special, but it is a new toy
Yes I know my system is dirty. Getting ready to clean and place in it's new home...
I love these cards.
That's what I do. Seems to work better and faster than the hairdryer method, though I must admit I've never had a stuck chip using either method. Before learning that trick though, my 754s used to stick all the time!
The Black Friday fairy was nice to me this year
Trying out some different sticks on the MVE...32GB now
4x8 1866 Dominator GT?
Nice color collaboration you have there. Red and black has been done before, but that looks damn nice.
All those years of DFI and Gigabyte boards, I missed out on all the rage then, so now its my turn
Looking good peet
I'll just drop these here
JL drivers, nice!
29 ohms though, that's an odd impedance...
Have you seen any other headsets use JL 40mm drivers?
Yeah, an old Sennheiser headset I had. They were 18 ohm impedance.
They sounded good, but I ended up swapping the drivers for some 32 ohm SFI orthodynamic drivers.
