woot, fo real? i HAVE to try that
Fo real bro. The honey works as TIM also. You dont even have to latch the cooler down, the honey will hold it in place. Then if you really want to do it right you dip your mother board in honey also. The ants will clean it up eventually.
ok thats it, i know youre not telling the truth now when you mentioned the ants, poor insects :shadedshu
i already did the other part
oh, that must have cost you a small fortune on Sandpaper!
and now you have arms like popeye,too!
that too, and now i have 20grams of cobber dust on my desk
sounds like youre ready to produce your own TIM!
Damn, no motherboard today. Maybe tomorrow...
I have a tracfone, buddy... it has no such feature
Don't know what the temps were before... never built the rig yet. Waiting on the motherboard. However... my temps dropped like 1-3c when I lapped my Athlon II... doesn't even have a core temp sensor so it's reading the socket temp... not a very good indicator :/
i know the q9450 i lapped a week ago dropped like 10c overall
Well, the q9450 has 2 dies instead of just one, so having a fine-tuned IHS will impove your temps a bit. The difference is also greater as your cpu gets hotter. My processor only eats like 72w after overclocking (and a bit of undervolting), IIRC the q9450 is a 95w processor straight out of the box without any overclocking... you probably had it overclocked and overvolted, so the temps would only natrually be higher.
ahh ok, I remember when I lapped my Phenom 9850 I dropped like 4-5ºc, wasn't the greatest job ever but it was ok.
Anybody tried delidding a Phenom/Athlon II yet?
No, me not, but this guy seems to have, without dieing. the procedure included directly lapping the die, from what i saw he wrote there:
Was more or less just wondering if they were soldered or not.
PS: I know all about, "the wrong way". lol.
Do you still have that 4300? Or was it a 4400...
Well, it looks like I'll be upgrading my Athlon2200 system a bit further than I thought. There's a 120gb drive and a 250gb drive in my mom's computer, and I recently reformatted her pc to cure a number of very strange problems... anyways, she doesn't have enough data to fill even the 120gb drive, so I just took the 250gb. It's a Western Digital Caviar, and the HDD is all black so it migt be a Caviar Black, but I don't see Black after Caviar on the label... it's just Caviar. In any case, I'm sure it's faster than the old 40gb drive I was using...
Hopefully that board comes in tomorrow... can't wait to get it running again.
No. lol. Got rid of both the de-cored 6000+ pictured above, and the 4300 I burned to death in the TEC meltdown. lol
Getting rid of the 6000+ I can see, but you should have kept the 4300 as a souvenir
The Mrs made me throw it away because "it is junk". Couldn't argue with the logic. lol.
I would have told her to throw away the stove top covers or something...
A kit? j/k...hehehe I use the local Auto-zone (auto parts store) kit..lol 2 multi-packs of 400-600-800-1000-1500-2000 grid sand paper(4.99ea). A roll of electrical tape to hold down the sandpaper and a round piece of glass from an old coffee table for a flat surface.
You can go 2500 for looks but not really needed. Will this be your first lap job?
Meh, I use 400, 800, 1500, and 2000. Going up to 2000 isn't really nescessary, after my sandpaper runs out I'll only go up to 1500.
No board today either, fuuuuuuuu..
yeah yeah i know but the nearest auto shop is like 1.5 hours away, so the cost of transport and so on is the same, if not more
i had to pay like 10$ incl shipping, so its not too bad, had to get some thermal paste anyways
and yeah, i know the high number grid is more for the shiny effect , i just want mine to be straight,
no i did a q9450 a while ago, but only to 1500grid, so no mirror finish
I get that argument from the parents frequently.... :shadedshu
Most of the stuff just ends up in my closet ... out of sight, out of mind
I got my i7 back on air cooling for now.My tube kept kinking every couple of days by the bends.So Monday i am going to get some reinforced tubing (because it would heat-up alittle)
I have a nice new 930 to go with my gig x58ud3 board.
trying to not tear my main rig apart.
A few more paychecks and she will be crunching for the team.
