Hey let me ask you something. How did your TIM look on the bottom of your IHS and the top of your core? On the 3800 Venice it was horrible kind of spider webby looking. The 3700 SD it looked good and even..Think I'll wait to do the 150 Optie I think they run pretty cool any way...Your HSF I have no idea about never have used one of them....You get this all going right you ought to come on over to the water cooling side of things...Did it give you an adrenilene rush when you took it off...It did me on the first one...
The 4000+ TIM was clean. It covered the CPU like a hood and was rather thick. No debris on the condensors. The IHS is rather thick as well and solid. Have no idea if they use a different IHS for 4000+ or not - though the San Diego is 90nm series and may be different. I was surprised at how rubbery the adhesive was that held the IHS down - it was black thick rubber like consistency, which after I removed the IHS - I left the residual on - didn't try to remove.

I think I may eventually go to the water cooling side - but not with the P180. So will need a new case etc. Probably with my next full upgrade which will be some time from now. If I go water, I'm going to want to see inside along with some cool glow-in-the-dark lights.

The IHS are all about the same they are surpisingly thick and heavy...Yeah thats the same adhesive they have used on the 2 that I took off...When you turn-turn-turn like Crash did in his video it gives you time to get the feel of the adhesive, really a good tutorial..You did right to leave what was left on the PCB...It took me 10 or 15 minutes the first time and about 5 the second...There are several ways to shim around the bare core, with tape or an old credit card and a few others...Everyone advised me to just leave it like it is and evenly tighten down the WB in my case and it worked well thats why I didn't mention it to you...There was another fellow here that cut the top off his 4400 x 2 just a day or two ago and it dropped his temp 16C....WC is a lot of fun, you always have something to play with, and the lower temp's are a big plus to....

16C wow.

I can't complain. When I'm at idle I drop down to 27C. Touching the Big Typhoon, I can't feel any heat at all. Now to burn in the Arctic Silver 5! Suggestions? Time cycles??

Just use your computer like normal. Seriously...lol. Plus you won't notice a temp drop really...it's all about ambient and other conditions...

Good temps....You should load your cpu some, turn it off a few times during the first 3 days, just leave it off 15 or 20 minutes...Run Prime 95 or such to load up the CPU let it run an hour or so....You just need to get it hot so the TIM will spread well let it cool some to solidify some....Thats what I do and it seems to work well....
