Temporary Water Ice Cooling - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Don't do this...

And the stock cooler is REALLY easy to install + if your just testing you don't even need TIM... i ran mine with no TIM for several months

I'm workin' an RMA as we speak.

If, by some circumstance, I discover that the board is good, what is a good open box $$ delta to negotiate w/ the reseller, in y'all's opinion?

TIA!

A final post to tie up loose ends and finish this thread:

I ended up not returning the mobo, as I could not find any other new models that were for sale.

Luckily, everything worked (I think) when I fired up my new build.

I've posted a few random build tips here, if anyone cares to see a few build techniques that I've not seen anywhere else.

Cheers!

Needs a little better cable management to make it look killer

Is it really going to fry the CPU if you turn it on just long enough to post? We're talking seconds here. How about with the cooler on but no paste?

Fire it up with no cooler if you are just making sure it will POST.

The chip will get hot, but will throttle back to protect itself.
At stock settings, you can even load into windows, run programs, etc., but it will be reeeeaaaaallllllllyyyyyyy rrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllyyyyyyy yyyyyyyyyyyy ssssssssssllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I've admitted above that my original idea (using water ice for temporary cooling) was silly. My early research yielded no answers, that is why I posted the question here.

However, subsequent research has revealed that these CPU's heat up 10-1000 times faster than the cooking element on your electric range.

In retrospect, I would never fire up a mobo unless the CPU had a cooler that was fully installed, TIM included. It turned out to be surprisingly easy to install the OEM CPU cooler, so there was really no reason not to do so!

I had a question about my mobo RMA.

Well, after searching the Web and not finding any more of these mobo's for sale new, I decided to keep the one I had.

So far, everything appears to be working.......

Hah you thought improvising with water and kitchen materials would be easier than mounting the stock cooler? wth.gif
