Thats the way i done mine aswell and it works fine.
so it is just a dot in the middle then.
does it take time for artic silver 5 to perform, czi mean it on 39 now, not really that impressed .
200 hours til the particles fully align, but you should make sure you go about 150 hours in operation, 50 hours shut off, but divided, like 15 hours on, 5 hours off, 15 hours on, 5 hours off... etc.
im gonna loose count lol
I told you to be rather liberal, it was others talking about rice grain sizes! Ive got every square mm of mine covered, no just silicone to copper
i did go back to it and spread it nicelly but it has made a big diff, also jus a little tiny bit went on two pins on the corner, i took as much as i cud off, no signs of anything happening, but is it dangerous?
If you got it off as best you could and if it did'nt go bang I would'nt worry, you could of left it in the socket though, you did'nt need to take it out totally!
You can get proper cleaner to get it off, but if you got it off best you could then that should do, someone will have another opinion no doubt, but im sure it will be fine!
i wish i cud of left it in the socketm it pulled out with the heatsink lol, proper glued to it hehe
although i am running gayvista and that uses cpu all the time, and mem as well. but still i leave it for a couple of sdays, and it if dnt do owt then ah well, waist of moneu
Oh dear lol
Remember it takes time to bed in, you will see a decrease in temps, its like nearly pure silver, its good shit, you aint wasted your money!
well i hope so, its nt rele the money i mean whats £7, just the thought of trying to do sumit gd and not hsppening lol, but i will see, if what u say its tru then i shud be idling at 30-32 sometime next week.
You should push the heat right up with cpustress or prime95, will help it bed in!
Also do a sciencemark 2 score test and post in thread!
gt an sm2 score here
bt obviously not since this, i will get crap score, ma ram cant handle 400MHz stable for more than one day then BSOD, so i took it down to 333
Thats better than my score though, but im 24/7 stable, I cant get my FSB over 880Mhz though Lots of factors holding it back but shit happens, ive got new gfx card on the way though so that will cheer me up when it eventually arrives!
hmm let us no how it goes, tried p965 get a hardware error 1 min in, i thinks its cz of vista cz ir run fine before
Will do, does vista not slow your games down though?
well it certainly slowed bf2 down, but then again, i havent gt proper chiopset drivers, gcard drivers r only beta, and only 1 6800gs is working cz the dirvers dnt recognize sli
I would go back to xp man, if you've lost gfx power then whats the point in vista???
i like to try new things, and be up 2 date, i will wait until its out on the public, then nvidia shud get some dirvers out.
Fair play, each to their own! Anyways... im off for a quicky on company of heroes then bed!
