Asus P5N32-E Overclocking Guide - Page 148

post #1471 of 5659
[QUOTE=canadazenmaster;2260444]

Can I run the VRMs naked and still overclock a little until I can get some swiftech VRMs? (ETA 4 weeks). Can I use any kind of ramsinks for VGA cards?
QUOTE]

Well, I have been running my VRMs naked for several weeks and don't plan on buying any heatsinks for them anytime soon. However, my CPU cooler kinda directs some air down that way and within a few days I should have my ThermalTake Armor case and then have plenty of airflow through the system. So, you should be pretty safe running them naked for a while as long as you have some air circulation going on in that area.

Should I put some arctic ceramique or some other permanent bond method? I guess that would void a future RMA though. What about purchasing some better tape from bigfootcomputers?

Also, do I need 16 of them or 8? I'm assuming 16.

the tape from bigfoot is crap. I tried it to re-attach some video card ramsinks that came with a zalman vf-700 and they wouldn't stick at all.

The bonding ceramique is tricky stuff. It works but you'll never get the ceramique off if you have to return the board for rma.

I think I will go with 2 sets of 8 of these:
http://www.bigfootcomputers.com/Merc...Category_Code=

And some aluminum ceramique so I don't short any pins out by accident. Those ramsinks come with thermaltape, so if I can apply them once and get them to stick, great no worries about RMA later and I can test the mobo out long enough to see if its going to be suspect for RMA or if it seems stable and good. If the tape fails after a few transports or just plain doesn't work, I will get the computer up and running under non-OC and make sure its stable as a rock and then worry about applying the heatsinks with ceramique later.

Nobody has answered me if I need 16 in total, so I am just going to go with that as it is the safest bet.

Thanks everyone, I hope this solves my problem!

Robilar,

Does it matter that your NB cooler is blowing right into the CPU heatsink? I'm thinking if pointing it to the back of the case or is there a limitation when you mount it?

I think I killed my scroll wheel!

I was looking though all the posts for I thought that there was a pick on applying paste to the e6600. Well I could not find it but I do remember that just apply aprox 1cm from left to right, or was it from top to bottom...?

Can someone please advise?

Check a few pages back at one of my posts with pictures attached. I managed to get the Spirit blowing towards the back of the case, but it was not easy and there is not much clearance. The picture and post should help you though.
