That will do it...I just put a pin-heads worth on my naked core and spread it out a little with a razor blade....

lol, that's how much i was using for my naked die. I took off the IHS and didn't really think i was using too much. But now i know it was way too much. I should have put a very very very small amount on lol. But i've been using that amount for a long time and i never had any problems. Without the IHS i guess you're supposed to use a card or even a razor to remove excess and smooth it out over the die.

Get some Acetone at any Hardware store it comes in quart metal cans for $5 or $6 bux....Get a Q-Tip wet it with Acetone and try to get all the AS5 off the PCB around the core...It's probably fried anyway but maybe if you get all that TIM off it will work....It's worth trying I guess...If not you haven't lost anything...Acetone is better then anything at removing TIM...

In the case of TIMs, less is best, too much and your HSF is "hydroplaning"

Another reason I love Ceramique, no silver so it's non conductive and it cleans up
with a toothbrush and Isopropyl 99%.

This time just spread the TIM on the naked core with a fresh razor and haze the HSF/WB.

Alright i got my new opteron 165 -CCBBE 0616XPWM. Right now i am just retesting to find my max ram speed. For the longest time i couldn't get over 250mhz stable with this ram. Then i looked up on the internet and found out that i needed to run my ram at 2.65v up to 290mhz. So now i got er running at 310mhz 2.5-4-4-8. DDR610.
Once i find my max ram, i'm going to find out my max cpu stable speed. Hopefully this one is a winner.

Ok i'm back,
I took a break from building any water blocks. Also i've started school so i've been a little busy. I have started designing a water block using AutoCad and Decided to go with a basic couple of holes criss crossing. Then i printed out some sticky paper with the designs. Drilled my blocks and tapped them. They're going to be using 1/8 NPT with a 3/8 hose barb. The sides will be plugged with a hex fitting or a square top. I haven't decided the route as of yet.

Thats looking good....Why the 1/8" instead of 1/4"npt it would have a little better flow....EDIT: never mind I see why now....

Because the 1/4 NPT is a little too big. The block would have to be at least another 2 tenths bigger. 1/8 NPT fits perfect for having a barb come out of the side of the block.
