Joe thats alright, I can pick them up at the local hardware store, I just have to bring in the backplate to make sure I get a screw with the right threads

so all I need are the two screws? No extra bolts or nuts?

Good luck boonie. You have my proc's brother by another mother!

Since I have a 'new' camera (and was bored since Xaser TASER is gutted) I figured I would redo my annotated desk photo. That said:

Be kind to the servers; the full file is about 3 mb, only download it once! This is a 25%-scaled thumbnail for convenience's sake.



In other news, I present to you, the ugliest box of all time (that is to say, my RMAing board):



And Joe, this is the CPU with the cooler taken off. From the look of it, it was not too much thermal compound, but I would suspect the fan was not tight enough. (The bracket was bending, I do not see how!) The bald patches have the compound on the cooler instead.

Not too terribly many, but still too many for me to bother listing. Maybe in the range of around 30. Many of the classics to be sure.

Anyone happen to have a Skt 478, 400 MHz FSB proc lying around? I found this really... interesting... looking item:

Would permit me to put a 2.x GHz Northwood proc in place of the 1.4 GHz Willamette currently in the CF Linux box.

Blitz, from the looks of the photo you provided (good job with the shots, btw; I don't have that talent), the TIM coverage looks okay. The dispersal pattern appears to indicate that the core die area in the middle has enough coverage.

On the other hand, even if the TIM coverage is good, does this actually mean that the contacting surfaces (the bottom of the HSF and the top of the IHS) have optimal contact? In other words, are the IHS and the HSF base flat, especially in their middle sections? (Please forgive me if I've asked you this before.)

They appear to be. The dispersion patterns are mostly symmetrical and perfectly complementary (that is, they are nearly round, and both the CPU and the HSF have about the same amount of compound). It is not as nice as the pattern on my Zalman, but I lack the lapping materials I would need to get the Thermalright whipped into shape.
