    not when you strip it down and slap a block on it..... warranty void.(also i sold the heat sink) my EK block took a turn for the worse and pretty much leaked all round the acrylic seal. I'm lucky it didn't take out my Crosshair IV tbh

    Often those HSF have some sort of sticker to indicate if it has been removed :(

    yes expensive mistake to make but a learning experience none the less o_O buggar shoulda hung onto the old HSF

    @laurijan I've yet to see an security sticker on an important part that stopped removal yet except from the likes of HP and such my own warranty void if sticker removed sticker is in the daftest place it doesn't cover anything except a small piece of PCB which has nothing under it

    I should point out that slight sag should be left alone, the cause I believe is that since the base isn't flat and since it's held down in the middle it's going to tilt one direction or the other slightly. Forcing it straight up actually increased temps by 2-8 degrees across all cores.

    We used to do this at EIT cept out of old AMD 586 and pentium 133's I think I gave my last one away last year to a cousin who thought it was cool it was an old Duron 900 some 2 part epoxy resin to cover the pins and to stop the chip from cracking when drilled used to work a treat

    Finally got the Koolance waterblocks I have been waiting on. Also bought a Swiftech 2x120 rad (the one behind the tech station) and decided to go with the black Feser tubing:

    Well with having the GPU's added to the loop and the new dual 120 rad, I have seen an increase from an average temp of 58-62C running WCG to 63-65C on the CPU (OC to 3.8GHz). The GPU's are at 32C when idle and that is a good decrease in idle temp from before. One card stayed around 34C while the other one had a hard time staying below 40C.
    I ran vantage with them both OC to 800/900 and the hottest they got was 74C. That is not great for most cards, but the temp with these before where 82C for one card and almost 90C (heavy oc/voltage increase and full load) on the other card. So I am pretty happy. I think I need better rads...

    Thanks:)
