    I love the immense size of skt2011 CPUs. :pimp:
    People complain about X79, but you look at these boards and you look at the size of everything and it really makes you wonder. :p

    I do love my machine though, there are so many haters. :(

    Did I make a statement, or ask a question?


    :shadedshu

    I DIDN'T zoom in, and I see PV332G160C-QKRD.

    Could be a "0". C11 stuff lists as "C1QK"

    Looks like you're right.

    Nope, worst offender of the 4, had to rip it apart to find out what IC, because of the weirdness I was experiencing. Should have taken a bit more time leaving it in the freezer. Or maybe heated it up...whatever.

    Good news is, got the other 5 sticks stable now, figured it out real quick. Which is good, now I can finish the review, I'll just use one of the sticks form the other kit.

    my friend will be upgrading from Intel Core 2 Duo E8200, Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4 and 4gb Mushkin DDR2 memory, and he will keep his Gainward GeForce GTX 460 1GB for now.

    That particular type of thermal adhesive is easiest to remove using a heat gun set to its lowest setting(usually ~350F) for just long enough to make the metal a little too hot to hold. That should turn the adhesive into the consistency of warm chewing gum(rubbery and stringy) and allow you to pull the heatspreader without risking pulling a chip while still allowing you to replace the spreader using the same adhesive.
    I've used this method on a DDR2 G.Skill kit(think they were Pi series), two seperate kits of Patriot Viper series DDR3(one kit was DDR3-2000 1.9-2.0v for P55 and had those old green heatspreaders, the other kit is DDR3-2000 1.65v and uses the newer style black heatspreaders), and a set of DDR2 Crucial(don't remember what series).
    The thermal tape(the gray, soft pad-like stuff) is easier using the freezer method.
    Hope this helps you out in the future!
