Tinting is when you coat the surface of your plate and the CPU/GPU with thermal paste and then clean it off. Then you apply the thermal paste for installation and install. It helps fill in the microscopic gaps or holes in both surfaces. If you lap there's not really a need to do it.

sloppy picture from my iphone, and bad cable management at the moment, but i've been doing all sorts and I'm not finished yet and still need to get another cooler for my processor. thinking another h60 or D14 (if anyone has suggestions please feel free rolleyes.gif )


Those are some sweet temps. I am waiting for my dwoods bracket in the mail, and as soon as I do I'm gonna throw an H80 on my 670. I'll be very happy if my temps are that good biggrin.gif

Yeah hopefully I will get a bracket from dwood too but I have no money at the moment lol. I was pleasantly surprised at the temps with cable tying it on lol

Exactly. I just don't know if this is considered the best method of applying TIM.

I have tinted for a while but to be honest I'm not really sure if it makes that big of a difference. It can't make it any worse....

That sounds like it wouldn't really do anything; if you let the TIM spread naturally, it should fill the cracks, regardless. It really can't hurt, but it sounds like a waste of TIM.

Yeah but you're not sure that the die is fully covered with TIM when you let it spread naturally, at least for bare dies that is. For CPUs with IHS it isn't needed to cover the whole die.

Yeah, I guess that it true, but the heat is mostly transferred from the centre of the IHS. If you put the right amount of TIM on, you really should not have much of the die uncovered.

Basically, you put a dot on the die/heatsink, spread it around with an old credit card or something similar, then massage it in with a coffee filter. When done there should be a slight haze on the surface. Then you do the dot/rice method you are all use to. It's supposed to speed up the "break-in process".

They talk about it in the AS5 application instructions as well. Probably see better results with an un-lapped setup but may make a difference in lapped surfaces as well. Just an idea I figured I'd throw out there.

Add me to the list!

Antec 620 Push/Pull as exhaust
GTX 650 TI overclocked to 1195mhz core 1415mhz memory idles at 21c, full system load is 45c and just GPU is 39c. Most importantly: It's fricken quiet! No more jet engine when i'm gaming! thumb.gif
http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/n6ner/

Used antec formula 7, Zip ties, and 4 hands to get it in place. Only problem is the annoying pump tick




Hoping once I get some heatsinks on the chipset I can go for an even bigger overclock

Edit: sorry about the pics. they're just some quick camera phone pictures and I only had a couple inches to work with.
