thank god for a new page. that last page was disgusting!
repost time then?
Got an older HK 4870x2 WB, the former owner was a little uncareful and left thiick fat fingerprints all over the copper plate.... i cleaned it with ketchup, vinegar extract and pure citric acid, and it looks pretty okay now again.
now see thats what im talkin about !
i guess that was the right size don, eh?
that looks bloody good BUT some of this would have made the cleaning job much easier
oh, polish is abrasive, that can cost flatness of the cooler.
i also had some here, but rather have a little less bling, then that i get worser temps,eh?
Is this the new E-Car from Chevrolet i heared about?
one more from me for the topic. ^^
it's not like you'd polish 2mm of the thickness
no, that would probably make the cooler unusable
but i guess when a kind of crevice forms, that can be even 1/4th of a mm,maybe smaller.. temps will worsen... maybe only one degree, but meh... that mustnt be... as said, on this stage of the project i wont risk anything i want that car rad 12fan madness cooled dual gpu card!
an 1/4mm might be a good thing lookin at those machine marks, flat surface = good temps
dont ask me why, but my heatkiller 3.0 looks similar regarding the machining of its underside, and we all know how good these things cool.
I trust HK, i never heard anyone had problems with their quality.
with luck, i maybe even can install it soon, to see how the temps are, despite the fact that the surface may be flat, but not without grooves
Metal polish leaves a residue. You don't want to use it on your heatsinks.
yeah but after the polish a little bit of iso to finish it off does just fine
i guess its a question of personal taste again, in the end there wont be difference besides maybe 1-2c either way
Is there some weird chemical reaction type reason you couldn't have just used 90% iso and a microfiber?
i did, that had nearly no effect... the hard acids were better
More to come
damn I like those dimms they have some real nice heatsinks on em
How about the inside of my headphone amp up close?
How about some shots of the new mobo?!
These were all taken with my droid x. Man im starting to love the camera on this phone
nice pics for a phone
Thanks, i thought so too I paid $300 for it back this summer and man it's been a great phone.
I like the black and white. Looks mysterious.
It was a dark and stormy motherboard...
