:D I prefer to see it as a 6970. Just as I see my cpu as a Phenom II, when unlocked. Too bad none of the guys on the "Phenom II OCers Club" thread, see it my way! :wtf: :banghead:

If your air flow is good, temps will drop 1-3C. Bad air flow should show a 5-10C drop.

can be, the thread is relatively old, and there are just a few posts from time to time... of course any deneb related silicone is allowed... even thubans should be still in it, as in my opinion, the architectural changes werent so big, that it asks for a new thread ;)

Yup Thubans too lol... When the bios setting 'unleashing mode' is set to manual, I see the option to enable/disable cores 1-5. My gut tells me a 890g/850 chipset may unlock my Athlon II to x6. :D I should have enough cash to upgrade my mobo in 3-4 weeks.

i dont think so, but maybe, you can unlock the L3 cache of your proc, and have the full cache.

its not too bad once you get the knack of it, for some reason it would spread on the GPU core. it just sat as a ball so i lifted it off and spread it onto the heatsink instead- which i lapped a tad :), knocked a few degrees off it seems so im happy enough, I my cpu done also with it

if you keep this liquid metal paste too long between the cooler and the heatspreader, it will bond similar to solder, and will be only removable with a razorblade and a hammer
(tested it myself, and i wouldnt recommend this paste to anyone, besides maybe benching or so... its very dangerous, and not worth the extra temps for ordinary use.)
Also, if you drop this stuff in the wrong place, it will be very difficult to clean it up, even far more than silver paste.
