Yes, just like the Athlon XP's used to have. I also used a washer on my 170 and BT.

I don't have the problem with adding padding... THERES NO PRESSURE FROM THE HEATSINK ON THE CORE. I just put on the old brackets and used the stock HS/F from the opteron, had to mod the brackets some so it would sit down onto the core good.

Guess I'll be running it like this til I can figure out what to do with the other heatsink.

Is that right? Your opty is running at 2.7GHz on 1.275V? That's just, well, quite unbelieveable.

You said full-load temps are mid-40's; is that CPU temp, or Core temp? If it's CPU temp, I would say that it's 5-10C too high, and you need a bit more pressure between the heatsink and core to spread out the thermal paste.

i lapped my stock opty heatsink. then i redneck engineered w/ superglue my venus 12 fan that blows wind like a tornado onto the fan shroud of the opty heatsink. sold it to my friend for 20 bucks. hell, you can't beat that, the heatsink has heatpipes....

Here's 1.35v (1.328v what says in bios and software) 2.7ghz 25 hour prime. Was only stable at 1.3v for about 4-5 hours in prime.

I know my problem I tried stating it a few times, theres not enough pressure between the heatsink and core- it lost too much height when I removed the IHS. For now I'm using the stock heatsink/fan that came with it after modding my bracket a bit so it would sit tight against the core.

Well, increase the pressure. Buy a metal file, and get filing. I had to file one of the heatsinks on the mobo, and some bits on the bottom of the retention bracket. And, the heatsink itself, as two fins were hitting my memory.

Also, I would suggest overclocking up until your core temps hit 55C under full load (I use PC Wizard for the temps). For me, that was at 1.45V.

How will filing make more pressure? I think he needs to grab himself some washers for the mounting brackets. Put them under the nuts until it is tight enough.

Well, I sanded the entire underside of the mounting bracket for my heatsink (which were 2 screw holes, and 4 bumps on each corner).

But yeah, using washers is indeed another option. Filing may still be needed if the heatsink hits anything now its lower.

The problem with my Blue Orb 2 is that it doesn't have mounting brackets inbetween the HS and mobo, just has a backplate for the screws to go into. I could possibly use the stock backplate, I have to rip it all out and check but I'll wait until I have some electrical tape or something to make some pads for it.

I did take a razor blade and scrape a little off the four bumps on the stock bracket, as well as the two holes. It's on the core nicely at the moment, I also had to break off two of the tabs for the heatpipes .

is your blue orb bolt on or snap on? if its bolt on, then you're ready to go. just don't overtighten. just make it hand tight to where its not going to move.
