Under 50% load, between 32-42; maybe tadd more if its taxing at that percentage.. Like playing games somtimes, like SPlinter Cell Black List, Tomb Raider, Crysis3 all on MAX settings, it gets a lil' more toasty but that's because of all the extra heat that its generating. I suppose I left out one really valuable aspect... Everyday uses, it's just perfect... perfectly fine.. However, I am trying to find stable max OC for various other reasons...which I rarely run over 4.2-4.3 anyways.. My every day setting is generally 4.3. And that 32-42 comes from that range with less than 1.23Vcore. that is like the maxx, most times it is under that V unless its drawing hard. Really I am out to see where I can take this chip... I suppose to really find that out, I will have to just break over and optimize everything...including delidding. No WAY will I bang on it by vice method and cause several or dozens of microscopic fractures in the silicon...trust me, when uv seen one under a microcscope and see traces near split by a crack, u wont do it either; just one place for a short to occur, and then bamm..voltage leaks and ur chips not what it was... HOWEVER...I know lots do it and it works fine... To me, I have a very very very steady hand, can see up close very well, and would rather take two blades and two hours and cut mine. And prolly have/will/plan to add an extra separate cooling loop with a 240 and Raystorm.... I see that in my future; Very VEry Near future. Other than that block, any others in mind that would work will on this chip? Thanks for the info my friend... its been helpful. Hope this time it answers to make it a little more clear for you; I apologize for not being so clear. After you get this message, I will PM you some photos; So give me a few minutes to gettem lined up for ya.

No worries. I've been considering getting one of the Raystorm kits myself, as a good starting point into the "custom" loop realm. That way, I'll get a fairly good idea of what all a custom loop would require in order to have it properly running.

I went from a Hyper 212 EVO (which was carried over from my last set-up), to an Antec Kuhler 620 (for $30 brand new I couldn't pass it up thumbsupsmiley.png), then finally landed on the H100i that's currently installed. I've watched my temps steadily decrease, regardless of what my CPU was clocked at.

The next logical step is to start on a custom loop. devilsmiley.gif

As far as de-lidding is concerned, "why 'fix' what isn't broke?" I'm certainly not going to risk my $200+ CPU for the potential to drop 2*C.

So I went for the delid using the vice. It was really easy. I was able to crack the seal an not have it go flying across the room (I had pillows set up just in case it did). So I go to put my CPU back in and my pc wont start. I was getting 00 code on the motherboard. Now when I originally installed the CPU I noticed some of the pins looked like they were not quite lined up. I opened a case with Asrock. They said that is probably the issue. They want to charge me $50 to fix it even though it is under warranty. I told them that's not right since it was like that when I bought it. I am waiting to hear back.

If you have a steady hand and some patience, I've read that you can use a mechanical pencil to try to re-align the pins. Basically, you'd take the lead out of the pencil, then carefully slide the pencil over the pin to be adjusted, then bend as much/little as necessary....

TC, what did you use to modify the screw holes? I have a H110 on it's way in the mail and I'm trying to do my research before it arrives.
