Athlon 64 x2 IHS questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone know if the Athlon 64 x2 S939 cpus had the cores solders to the IHS or used thermal grease?

I know the A64 3200+ Venice core S939 used thermal grease on the IHS. The A64 I'm running I removed the IHS on because it was overheating due to the old cracked up TIM. Does anyone know if these cpus (see below) used solder or thermal grease?

Athlon 64 X2 3800+ S939 Manchester core (ADA3800DAA5BV)

Anyone? I'd prefer not to rip the core out if it can be avoided, lol.

Nope, I don't belieave it's glued on the cores, but around on the outer edges of the sides where you see that black lining stuff

Awesome. I've removed the IHS on my 3200+ Venice (it was crazy overheating) and found the TIM to be very dried up. I'm getting a x2 4200+ Manchester and if its anything like my 3200+, it'll need to be removed also but just wanted to make sure.

So its confirmed. Today I removed my Athlon 64 x2 4200+ IHS and it went pretty well. For one I didn't kill it, I'm now able to run @ 2.5ghz /1.4vcore stable and it runs about 4*C cooler with fresh AC5, so I'm expecting it to lower even more once it gets broke in.

I didn't take any pictures, because this was only my second time removing an IHS and I was pretty nervous.

So if anyone wants to remove the IHS on an ADA4200DAA5BV, go for it. Its not soldered on, just the crappy TIM AMD uses.
