Any input on how much improvement I might see from bleeding for a while or should I assume I mounted / applied TIM wrong?
dude...what cabin are you in we are in the same boat
well not exactly my temps are no where near as bad as yours BUT I am still trying to get rid of the bubbles...it has to be the block churning it up as I never had the issue with the EEEEK block.
to give you an idea this is after I THOUGHT I had it bled but the bubbles returned...hasn't affected it to much but still not as good as it could be.
oh that's at 4 gig by the way with 1.3 v I,ll run it again today and see how much it changed at 4.1 1.35 I was getting I think 72
also forgot I did the credit card swipe and dot BUT I am using kryonaut BUT I ran out so it is the worse paste job ever splotches everywhere so I do not think application is the biggest issue.Edited by tarot - 10/22/17 at 6:57pm
