Not gonna submit an official entry for this one yet
but I think this was a success, I nicked the corner though (not even where the glue was, I nicked it kuz my oh-so-unsteady hands hit the corner before the IHS =_= so lame
Durr... ignore the mess...
Before I start
Finally off after 40 minutes, easier than the first time but still was trying to be careful, only 2 corners wanted to come off easily the other two I fought to get out
Some Coollaboratory Liquid Pro on it, first attempt (not enough was on it, and it wasn't creating a good contact so I had to take it off reapply and scrub the IHS - I probably need to sand it down but I don't ahve a good means to do it easily... well I have a rotary tool with a sanding bit but I'll pass on using that).
After I put it back in, my entire computer went haywire >< guhh... my fault for forgetting to set to default, but more or less it didn't seem to like my RAM at
1.5v - 2133MHz - 10-10-10-27-2T for my Samsung ram (2x4gb)
After trying to get it back to normal (kept booting at 100x48 @ 1.48v no matter what I set it to...), I get the same 4.2GHz (42x100) at similar temps (paste isn't set yet obviously which is why I'm not submitting till it's set in a bit more.
P.S. I think the first time I applyed the tim I didn't set do it right kuz it kept crashing etc. I took it off, wiped it clean, used the gritty steel wool like thingy, and more or less tryed to scrap the IHS down as much as I could and it seemed to have worked ok.
Currently, I'm just testing some new settings but it seems to like my ram at 2133MHz, 10-11-10-1T at 1.375v, cpu it's stable at 4.2GHz and 3.8GHz fine but still needs testing and nothing set in stone yet just posting for now though.
N.B.. the pictures are grainy because I wasn't paying attention and my ISO was set to 6400 +_+ oops, i obviously don't pay attention to photographs...Edited by JQuantum - 11/20/12 at 4:24pm
