DUE CREDIT: MehlstaubTheCat

Stuff needed

1x Dynatron G199 (lga 1366 variant, 2011 MODELS WILL NOT FIT)

4x M4 45mm screws, you could also go with 50mm long screws like i did, but you are GOING to need extra nylon washers to make it properly fit. This guide is written with the assumption you will be using an EK supremacy block, so if you are not, you need to find out what size your fittings are & change the screws accordingly.

8x nylon wasyers

4x copper washers

1x big old sheet of thermal pad. I recommend FujiPoly, it is some hard core stuff. CHILL IT BEFORE USING IT (it's that soft)

if you want to lap the back plate:

sheet of 400 grit, sheet of 800 grit, sheet of 1200 grit, sheet of 1500 grit, sheet of 2000 grit, sheet of 2500 grit (I couldn't find 2500 locally) FrozenCPU does sell a lapping kit for ~10-15$ last, some sort of rubbing/polishing compound. I used my dremel & the provided compound/head to polish it out.Lapping is pretty straight forward, sand it down, sand it some more, sand it even more, keep sanding,


ok, so first things first. Remove the stock screws from the dynatron. Try not to put a giant gash in it (like I did) The end result should look something like this.


Next, remove the black plastic lining from the LGA 1366 bracket, clean thoroughly with alcohol or ammonia.

Next, cut out a piece of thermal pad = to the size of the back plate, & place it on. Make small slits with a razor so that it fits over the bolts, push it down, & rub out all of the air bubbles.

Next, (if you want, might as well) you need to take the locking mechanism, remove the black plastic, clean it, & cover it with thermal pad, like this.

OK, now that this is done you can put the motherboard back together.

It's much better to cut the piece of thermal pad too big, you don't want to cause any shorts. After this, take something soft & cut the excess pad down to size.

Next you want to start filling in all the holes so that it ever so slightly protrudes from the back plate.

Should look something like this.

OK, now comes the fun part. Painting on the thermal paste. I went with PK-3 for this process because it's non-conductive, is REALLY thick, & really sticky.

Next, you want to get your screws ready.(note that I used 50mm long screws, so I had to use extra washers to get things right)

Now you want to slide them onto the dynatron.

Now it's time to mate it all together. Slide put the dynatron on it's back, pickup the motherboard and slide it through the screws. Once you have done this you can slide the water block on, lock everything down, and boom you are done!



I have not seen your build log until now. Awesome build! thumb.gif

What kind of temp gains can you see with the back plate mod above?

I didn't take the time to do a before & after, but on Ivy-E it's showing ~5c, so it should be @least that on Sandy-E.

Posting from the beast now! Finally up & running.

Thanks Skupples. Thinking about doing the mod myself. biggrin.gif

Which BIOS are you using on your Titans?

Skyn3t rev 2, 1006 base clock.

I have an extra LGA 1366 Dynatron... Leme know! Getting ready to list all of my old parts on the market place, just trying to decide if I should keep the Maximus V formula & delid'ed & lapped 3570k or throw them up for sale as well.

Will try the BIOS on my Titans.

skupples, thanks for helping me out with the flush system biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Unfortunately http://www.homedepot.com/p/Beckett-680-GPH-3-8-HP-Submersible-Pond-Pump-FR600HD/202563431 the pump I got isn't doing it's job.
Using the reducers with it doesn't work properly, debating whether to get a different pump or a different reducer to work with the one I have.

Just curious, how is it not functioning properly? Seems like that pump would be plenty strong enough to push water through even a series of radiators.
