IHS removal on 3600 brisbane. - Page 5

lost 7c load, nice

So, it dropped about 7*c at load by taking the IHS off. This test was done with a Zalman 9500 AM2. The Zalman was not lapped and neither was the CPU's IHS. I have heard that by lapping your Heatsink and IHS you can get from 5-10*c drop. So, I am not really sure if this is worth it.

However, I did check for flatness on both the CPU and Heatsink and they were almost perfectly flat. So if your Lapping efforts have not yielded an acceptable drop in temps, this may be a viable option.

Good luck and sorry for the delay in posting my pics\\findings\\opinions.

Has anyone else taken the IHS off of an AM2 chip? A trustworthy source of information has told me that there are indeed some IHS's that are soldered on with the AM2 chips.

If you have removed the IHS of an AM2 chip please post here with all numbers from the top f the CPU including the date ie. "AMD 2005" that is on the chips top.
