I would try to avoid it as much as possible, sweat, static, skin etc isnt good for it, that i know,
wear some gloves, use a anti static bag and/or antistatic wrist strap and you should be good,
no worries, its not like if you touch it, it will damaged right away..

when i delidded mine, i only tried not to touch the bottom, and all went fine ..

Completely fine to touch the bottom especially with the new chips. We don't use pins anymore so the bending part isn't really a problem anymore. As long as you de-static yourself constantly or wear a de-static bracelet, you will not damage the CPU. I thought I was but I kept touching it and actually squeezed the CPU very hard time to time. Obviously it didn't break it and I'm still on the same OC with no problems and lower temps!

Guys, should I disable hardware acceleration in the Firefox settings? I already disabled the one in the Flash settings, but unsure about the Firefox setting's one.

Why would you?

These sensors are fine if you want to make comparisons from one day to the next against the same CPU but you can't make any meaningful comparisons if you are comparing to a different CPU because the sensors are not accurate enough.


I agree w/unclewebb... It is cool and helpful that we have some programs that can monitor the temps, but one ought to know they were never made to "for 100% accurate core temperature reporting." Always factor that into what you are seeing and they are still very useful guides that we OC'ers would not want to do without.biggrin.gif

Also, don't forget that the temperature sensors on intel chips can be very inaccurate at lower temps, so what Realtemp is reading for idle temps could be far from reality. And idle temperatures are completely meaningless, so don't worry about them.

Good and interesting link Conquistador SW. Thanks for sharing that.
