a question.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has any one removed the cover from the CPU and set their heatsink directly on the CPU for lower temps?

The CPU is attached to a small board.
Thermal paste is applied to the CPU.
A cover is glued down.
More thermal paste is applied.
After market heat sink is installed to lower temps.

it looks to me that eliminating the middle man (first thermal paste and cover)
and just use AS5 with your heatsink for direct contact, temp should drop with out having to pass through
a second layer of paste and alu/copper cover.

i have been reading about how some coolers work very well,
And even thou someone will have the same stuff it will suck for them.
Could this be because of the thickness of thermal paste under the cover?
Or even the cover it self not being set right at the factory.

to find out how well air cooling can really be, i think a test should be done
With direct contact to the CPU.

any one game on pulling the cover off of an old CPU, make direct contact and see just how far the
Temps really drop and how far an overclock can be taken on that CPU.
my new system.

Lol, its done alot my friend. Alot of people here run their CPU's naked. It would seem that the average temp drop at load is around 7c. Anyways, just get a razor and pry it off very carefully. There is a video here on the site... ill get a link for it real quick.

And here it is! http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...elds/mcats/501

I've never tried it yet but when I get a new chip I'll do it to my 3200+ before I replace it. It seems to be common and I've been wanting to give it a go for a little while. I've heard of the risk you take with cracking the chip with the sink or block when its too tight.
