Ivy Bridge i3/Pentium IHS Fixed? Or Not?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any idea if the recently released i3's and Pentiums have had the dreaded IHS replaced or soldered?

Don't let that stupid thread that was here saying there is an issue fool you. There is no issue and Ivy bridge is cool enough at stock and with a decent cooler, you can also overclock it nicely. For the lower range chips this is even more true. i3 and pentiums will run fairly cool even with the stock cooler. You have to realize that most lower end chips are not soldered in the first place. Most chips under ~150$ from every previous generation (also sandy bridge) don't use solder, but just the same crappy TIM.
