post #3991 of 33641
Hehe, good point lads, if I ever do need to remove the liquid pro, out comes the sandpaper ^^

In other news, I've been thinking of doing a bit of an overhaul of my rig, based around that new Corsair Link thingy that came out a while back.
Figured I'd get myself something nice for the holidays, especially as my power supply has been acting a bit wonkey lately...
On my wishlist for now are the corsair link module itself, the AX760i psu, and maybe a set of sleeved cables to go with it (It's damn near impossible to find cable sleeving around here, I discovered).

Was thinking of maybe getting a H100i as well, but I figured it probably wouldn't net me all that much performance over my current Noctua NH-D14... What do you guys think?
Some little sneaky money-spendey part in me still wants to shell out the money for a full custom WC-loop as well, but I think I'll hold off on that for now.

So... long story short, I've got a bit of money put aside and wanna get myself something nice, what would you guys do if you were me?

yea, it is for sure, its still on the die you use it so, but most of us use the ihs,
so can use another tim between ihs and copper block, saves trouble of cleaning pro later,
on the die it doesnt get that much grip, since its made of "glass"

True, it'll be a pain to clean off, and it might take ages, but then again, I've got time and I enjoy tinkering with my stuff biggrin.gif
Besides, it's not like lapping my IHS was a 5 minute job either, and I've heard numerous times that any left-over traces of Liquid Pro'll only make the next TIM you apply perform better.
All in all, I'm happy with my choice thumb.gif
And I'm certainly not disappointed with the overall 30c drop in temps either ^^

I used it on all sides, die, inside ihs, on ihs and a thin layer base plate cooler biggrin.gif
i had almost the same result as you 25+C tempdrop,
i leave it as is for now, in a few months i will take it off,
and look for the best way to clean it, one thing im gonna do,
is buy that cleaning package from the coollaboratory,
and see if that works..

i finally got money next month for my next upgrade,
gigabyte 7950 windforce 3 ...woot ..lol
what do you guys think about that one?

corsair makes good psu's,
i like my XFX ProSeries 750W XXX Edition tho,
did very good in all kinds of tests back then,
and has Seasonic components in it,
i see alot of the top cpu have their components in it,
i think my next one, will be a seasonic cpu,
but they are costy..lol
Seasonic X-760 80+ Gold, not sure how it performs,
didnt look for reviews etc yet smile.gif

i like that new H100i, but when i looked for a prefab waterloops,
i came across the thermaltake water 2.0 extreme,
most reviews show its even better then the H100,
not sure about the new H100i tho, and how it performs,
from what i read it was more some other little upgrades,
like tubing, noise reduction etc..

but my mugen can keep my chip cool easy,
im not in a hurry anymore to get another/better cooler for now,
changing my vid card will improve my rig alot more ...yesss... biggrin.gif

i don't have space on my case for a 240 rad, unless i do it outside hanging on the back of the case... Or even a h80i.. but if Leyaena is getting these awsome temps with the same cooler i have, why would i change?? my d14 is impossible to hear it.

Those Eisberg kits are awsome, you can add blocks or rads.

I would save more and go for a 7970 or 680, significant improvement over your current card and a 7950. 680 maxes everygame at 1080p, 7950 more like 30-40fps.
