ASUS P5N-E SLI 650i Thread - Page 840

post #8391 of 9621
So I have a Thermaltake CL-C0034 for the NB, and a ZALMAN ZM-NB47J for the SB on its way from newegg.. soon I'll be ready to push my box a little further.. buuut.. last weekend I lapped my cpu, and applied arctic ceramique.. not sure if I applied it wrong or too much, as my temps now are higher than before!!!

I usually apply a grain of rice size drop on the chip, then spread it in a circle with a plastic bag, then drop the cooler on it.. any other tips??

note that I wanted to save a bit for a bigger cpu cooler, so I lapped, added 2 more 120mm to my antec 900 (giving me 6+2 fans on the psu) and got the chipset coolers..

also, has anyone had a fsb hole around the 1700 area for the cpu? I cant seem to get that going? maybe up the nb voltage i guess.. (I'm only at 1600 for now)

this forum is great btw..keep it up!

I don't think you should to spread the TIM with a plastic bag, as it can trap air.

Grain of rice size in the middle of the cpu, bolt on the cooler, twist it a little left to right before applying full pressure to the bolts. well that's how I do it and never had a problem.

http://www.arcticsilver.com/instructions.htm

What voltage have you on the northbridge and how many sticks of ram ?

I can run my fsb up to 475 at the 1.5v NB setting, with 2 sticks of ram and no problems.

I'll take some pics later today. (will be 5~6 hours from this post)


I dont know if my camera fits in my case to take a picture since its huge and my case is tiny.

There is a HAF on his way though.

So, any thoughts? I've got absolutely no clue what's going on with this board, and I would rather not replace it for something silly like this.
RMA. This is not just a silly problem, it's going to be a constant annoyance. They should have it back to you in about 2 weeks from shipping from my experience.

Cheers!

Sorry for the bad pics but its hard to get a focus at such close distances.... maybe I should have put my camera to Macro but w/e.


You could always put your original 8800 in the second slot just to make sure it fits.

well you forgot to mention that you have 2 G80 GTS' not the G92 GTS'

The G92's HSF are squad and the size of the card while the G80's are rounded.

Neither did you guys say you had the G92's. I thought you had the 512 G80's.
