i have a new mobo on the way, and am praying the cpu is still good. the mounting screws and base for the tuniq got kinda fuxord. so i'm back to my modded sunbeam 'till i can make/get a new mounting kit.


oi. i'm gonna try to rma the board to gigabyte, maybe, i dunno. the CPU never had insne volts going thru it so if its dead maybe i can rma it thru intel, but it is my fault. i still don't kno how the pins got bent considering the cpu never left the socket while i was rebuilding.
Well I have heard of a case where someone had applied too much thermal paste (explains your high temps and issues) and when he tried to remove the heatsink the paste acted more like an adhesive causing the CPU to get pulled out of its socket, bending the pins.

typically, you only need about a pea-sized amount of thermal paste. Although my heatsink suggested it to be applied to both. Remember, excessive paste will start to act as an insulator..

haha! when i 1st got my system put together the stock volts read as 1.3125, and l8r on after a few BIOS flashs read as 1.325. so, yea... i dunno. might be worth RMA'n just to try to get a new stepping but i doubt they'd replace it if it aint broke enough

even if the pins are in the mobo(more like contacts) and the pin was bent down...

And i kno, too much thermal paste is bad. There was a little too much, it was actully AS ceramique and the edges marred the HSF. So i suppose i can assume my IHS is very concave, no?

Specifically because it was secured in the mobo. If it weren't secured in then it would have just come out fine with the heatsink. Also, most core 2 CPU's seem to have concave IHS so it wouldn't suprise me if it was.

Ok, well as you all know I have a new mobo coming. Also the old mobo and FUBAR'd HSF(TT) are being RMA'd back to newegg soon.

the model number on the chip is as follows(tell me what it means pls )

L624A819

I did a quick google search for that code and sum1 else has the same code and OC'n results almost parralell(< I can't believe i can't spell this right now<) to my own.


Edit:

If the chip ain't dead I'll keep it and just put it into the other ds3 mobo and get a new, better CPU *when I can afford it*.


Once I get some money I'm picking up a hd2900 or equiv(w/e is best for the money at the time), a set of HZ g.skill RAM, and probably a qx6600 if Intel does their price drops by this time(I should be able to pick it up for less than what I paid for my e6600 originally, w00t.)

UPDATE!!!!

she's back up and running w/ a DS3 rev 1.3 mobo.

Idle temps are fricken terrible, 40-45c range. 1.3125(actully reduced from teh 1.325 default) @ 333FSB running 1:1 RAM divider for DDR2 667 4-4-4-12 @ 2.0v.

No, i didn't use alot of AS5, too much probably still but i think my CPU really needs to be retired in favor of a good OCer w/ a less concave IHS. After I get a new CPU i'll lap the IHS and build a new OC rig for 'er i suppose...

I don't think the Drivers are 100% interchangable from my old rev. 1.0 becuase IE laggs alittle and other things jsut don't seem quite right. I'll be reinstalling new drivers shortly...

OBTW, in my tizzy after I killed my mobo I knocked a bottle of 91% alcohol into my 72 dollar g15 It works, but some of the silver paint is gone, some of the keys are faded and the backlight of the LCD is waaayyy too bright on the right side w/ some distortion in the LCD when it's backlit. I'm thinking about trying to RMA it to newegg, but it's my fault I think my tuniq partially killed my DS3. it's being RMA'd and i'll either sell it in favor of a thermalright 120 extreme or mod it w/ some sort of non-conductive backplate so it won't kill this mobo too. IDK...
