temp drops from AC freezer pro lap+AS5?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to push my Opty 165 to 3GHz and have basically hit my wall at 2.85ghz... I'm not sure if the temps could be blamed, but my temps do hit 50C during Orthos... either way, even if it doesn't help my OC, the temp drop would just generally be nice...

When I got the AC freezer 64 pro, i was told that the thermal paste it came with rivals as5 so i left it on

However I'm considering lapping my AC freezer 64 pro and throwing on as5.... could I get a general idea of how much of a temp drop to expect and if its worth it? this will be my first time lapping and could also use a guide and a general idea where to get the sandpaper (200-800ish should be easily found at a hardware store but I doubt they'll supply 1000grit let alone 2000grit)

Well, I got a 13 degree Centigrade drop from a $10 heatpipe cooler and AS5 over the stock Intel cooler. So I'd say you might get 7 to 10 degrees better. BTW, this was before the AS5 cured.
