Crazy Larry was a screen name I used for quite a number of years. Got it from a business trip I was on at the time (one of my working buddies said I looked like the muppet character Crazy Harry but said Crazy Larry) biggrin.gif

Thread Starter 
My temporary CPU cooler came in today, so here are some pics of installation:





It's not really the right crimson color...but it looks pretty cool anyway, and like I said....this is just temporary until my water loop is finished.





I had to take off the heat sinks on the ram for the cooler to fit.







Put the CPU in for the first time.







A little thermal paste and some screws and its on.





And the fans just clip on real quick and easy.



Whole process took maybe 15 minutes...and that's only because I was watching TV. Super easy to do. It's definitely overkill for a cooler that I will only use for a couple of weeks, but this will give me a good chance to compare temperatures from a good air cooler, to my water loop. Lots of the comparisons are with crappy stock coolers...but this thing should do a decent job.


More later tonight!
