You can damage it with powerful solvents if you go overboard cleaning them, but I'd be amazed if the TIM degraded enough to need replacing in less than ~10 years without such treatment.

I've seen OEM thermal pastes that were failing within less than five years, either being dried out, pumped out (thermal expansion/contraction + low viscosity), or a combination of both.

i've seen preapplied tim on stock heatsinks that turns to dust and flys away when you pull it off a cpu...

kind of unnerving that intel is using any paste in such a hard to get to place.

Nope. Some reviewers have stated that pre-final ES used to preview and get to know Haswell/1150 and its features, and to OC while waiting fo the final retail samples to be reviewed/OCed had the same problem...or as Intel would say, "FEATURE". Only ones who seem to have avoided this issue are those who received hand picked & binned processors, probably because the mobo companies chose only those processor resilient enough to stand the voltage stabs and don't crap on itself.

Let's call it by its name. It's killing processor left & right. That's not a voltage spike...

THAT'S A VOLTAGE STAB. axesmiley.pngaaskull.giflachen.gif

I don't remember SB having any such sudden death issue after release.

So far I dont know of any folks with sudden death on HW that were running retail BIOS or retail mobo sample
post #657 of 858
all I remember is the SATA issue and then B3 revision solved that.
post #658 of 858
There were crap load of them dying but the big thing (more troll worthy ) was the SATA issue

Looks like for gaming I don't need to upgrade my 3570k after all. Any idea how haswell release gonna effect 3770k prices, if at all?
post #660 of 858
Lol pretty pathetic launch by Intel. Guess I made the right choice going 3770k for $220.


EDIT: On a side note, not to derail TOO hard, but this is really where the fanbois will come out. I have historically went the Intel route, but DAMN they did not impress me with this launch. I am hoping AMD brings back their A game Athlon series style and hits them where it hurts. They have had too much of a lead to dump it on a 3770k clone. It seems like they entirely ignored the desktop line for Haswell... pretty pathetic, Intel.
