Opinions on the H80i? Questions concerning the 3570k

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im wanting to finally play around with overclocking. My brother just bought his H80i and hes been messing around with the Phenom II 965 BE Chip that I originally had. =P

Iv been reading about the 3570k chip's seated wrong? Something about the chip making it hotter than sandybridge? What do?

Thanks. Greg.

The integrated heatsink was soldered onto the silicon die on sandybridge. On Ivy, they just glued the heatsink to the pcb and put crappy thermal paste. Since ivy/haswell is glued and not soldered, there are air gaps, so it doesn't sit properly, the terrible paste they used doesn't help much either.

Delidding is what solves this problem: http://www.overclock.net/t/1313179/official-delidded-club

After delidding you remove the glue and apply good paste and mount it, giving optimal contact and heat transfer. You don't need to do it though to overclock, it will just help you get a higher overclock.
