post #10881 of 33576
Ok - first of all I would like to thank all of you that helped me. Repped all of you smile.gif
Valguar and Swag were on Skype for an incredible 2-3hrs with me - props to those guys for sticking through with me.

So here it is - I need everyone's honest opinion, Swag and Valguar both say that it would be best if I keep it running the way I have it. However, seeing as I have a paper in there trying to make it run - god knows what will happen down the line - and I'm tempted to RMA it.
My chip is temperamental - it worked without any cooler and post'ed with DIMM's 1, 3, 4 - Before without any paper in, only 1, 4 would go.
Then I put my cooler on (and tried loosening it up a little), and then only 3, 4 would work.
Note how 2 never has worked.

Anyway - so now I'm folding, trying to see my temps, and more so trying to see if I'm at all stable.

This is my trail of thought:
As it is broken, and temperamental - I can't trust it.
1.
Get CLU, and see the temp difference between it and MX2
2.
Which ever "paste" is better - stick with it, and then apply glue on the PCB and send it into intel and hope for the best.
3.
If it gets rejected, I lost a little money and time - however I will have a CPU that still works, and has the "best" temps.
4.
If it gets accepted -> happy days for me.

I was extremely careful with my de-lidding...and can't believe that this has happened. Exactly the most important point (apart from the die) has been scratched - and thus is no longer working properly.
On the plus side - so far I can see around 5-10c difference in temps, and that's with MX2 - If I get this with MX2 - then I might potentially see over 20c with CLU.

I would like to know what you guys would do in my situation.
Out of 16GB that I got - supposedly 8GB is working.

-> Stick I will re-look at the pins again - I think it is the angle, rather than anything else.

Check the spots I've circled, looks to be exposed copper from the PCB visoble



*edit, I see you taped over the 2 along the side, check that other spot near the corner too

So slap that hot Sig on your sig list! you are in! thumb.gif

Ohh do you have a CPU-Z link to your max OC? Your still in btw.

Thanks. Never bothered to validate it so just did so... http://valid.canardpc.com/2679687

That's a touchy subject. You can send it in and see what they say though. Get yourself something to use in the meantime. Find a cheap Sandy or another Ivy.

Ok sure - I'll do that when the CLU comes in.
Thanks for the suggestion!
I should state I used normal printing paper.

I got my old PC right outside my door - I'll use that in the mean time, if needs be.
I can survive not folding, or gaming on the new PC.
My old PC still is very good for what it is, would just have to spend a day re-installing some programs (as I wiped it clean)

anyone ever try putting a touch of solder on those PCB blemishes?

My friend was saying that to me - "maybe we can solder it?"
Now that's wild.

Mines been a great sucess... info below pasted from my seperate topic, for your guys information.

Hi Guys,
Took the plunge and de-lidded my 3770K as even with my huge loop, 90c at 1.28v and 4.7ghz was stopping me testing any further and I really want some more clocks. Also, my core temps were very uneven which has always niggled me.

Plus - I just wanted to do it for the hell of it, so off we go... smile.gif

Quick test beforehand using ten runs of IBT on normal yield the following results.

  • Idle Core 1 = 31c
  • Idle Core 2 = 26c
  • Idle Core 3 = 29c
  • Idle Core 4 = 23c

  • Max Core 1 = 76c
  • Max Core 2 = 88c
  • Max Core 3 = 83c
  • Max Core 4 = 79c





After the work was completed, I performed the same test, and yielded the following results.
  • Idle Core 1 = 27c (-4c)
  • Idle Core 2 = 24c (-2c)
  • Idle Core 3 = 26c (-3c)
  • Idle Core 4 = 22c (-1c)

  • Max Core 1 = 53c (-23c)
  • Max Core 2 = 56c (-32c)
  • Max Core 3 = 58c (-25c)
  • Max Core 4 = 54c (-25c)

An incredible max improvement of 32 Degrees C!
And importantly, the cores are now all within 5c of each other, instead of 12c as they were previous, which I expect is a result of the lapping.




Just to be sure it wasnt a fluke, I put ona quick double run on Max settings. results are almost identical. smile.gif




Pleased?
Oh yes! Now for some more volts and clocks! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Pictures to follow. just uploading.

The bits n bobs...


She's under the knife...


No turning back now...




IHS was definately concave... that pleased me. smile.gif






Pop her back in with some Liquid pro...




And that is pretty much that. All I can say is TAKE YOUR TIME.
Rush this and you will slip and wreck her... but take your time and its very simple to do. smile.gif

If he has a soldering iron handy it might be worth a shot. Just a tiny dab of solder.

what exactly would i be soldering?

@Stu-Crossfire : very nice mate
