then be careful, a removed sticker, can ruin your RMA right for it, if there is still one
i can always say that it wasnt there when i got the card, faults are made all the time on assembly line
nice man. nvidia use sooo much TIM but at least they use MX3
no they use a shin etsu paste it just looks like mx3, which kind of looks like everything else.
How can anyone tell which brand they use? It is obvious that they use tooooooo much.
the only way to tell is to taste them... shin etsu has a more chalky, peppery quality than mx-3
Yeah, you just put it on the tip of your tongue and rub it against the roof of your mouth... the grainier pastes are usually shin etsu. They are also a little spicier and more bitter. I cant put my finger on the name of the chemical exactly, but it burns your mouth a little if you leave it there too long.
Did you notice a temp difference when changing the paste? im thinking about changing mine but dunno if its worth the effort.
EDIT: Not to spam thread with my OT questions - but which paste did you use?
Glad i asked btw... saved me trip to compusa.
NOTHING , not a single c in temps, either load or idle
was kinda surprised, might try some mx3, but then again, might wait till i wc it
Surely the correct way would be to either compare the texture's, thickness etc side by side or for the only true way of knowing is scientific researching of the compounds used in each TIM... but I'm sure most if not all will not go this extreme to find out
geez thats dusty hahaha
Hah, nice shots though.
I'll have to take some shots of my MSI P55-GD80 to Maximus III Formula swap today.
What video card is that on the left?
the ROG super duper X-Files classy card that came with the board
Are they good? (Seriously speaking, as a sound card LOL)
nah not really, its just a regular soundchip(NOT a creative) with the creative softwre to it afaik
aka wannabe x-fi
so id get a real card instead if i were you
I have one, I was just curious since i've seen it come with a few boards. I mean, might be better than some onboards at least, don't you think?
hmm maybe if you have some high end sound system, but regular speaker then i just cant hear any difference...but wth im old so might just be me haha
I really would like to get some of the Logitech Z-5500's!
yeah those are badass, but a little too pricey for me lol
They are oh so worth it though, my buddy has them and they are just great!
