Line or Morsel of Rice - Page 2

post #11 of 40
I do exactly the same, spread it out with a credit card, is it worth reseating with a line or not?

I spread it out using a credit card origionally, but I reseated today using the line method.

The difference in temps was a 1-2° drop. Not really worth the time it took to remove my TT120 from the motherboard clean it, and then put it back on.

personaly i use 2 grains of rice ..kinda one over each core and my temps are good .... i guess there are other factors to take into consideration ..how flat the ISH is ? how flat the base of the HS is ? depending on that the best method my be diffrent ... but i guess its safe to say that the thin line method will be best in most cases..

Hey have any of you scene a dual core core2 duo without its top on, its not a long stretched out core, its a little guy thats about the same size as our old 90nm amd 939 single cores. Its directly in the middle. Here is apic of my 4300 naked to show you what I mean. The line method was adopted for the quad core cpus that are spread out alot farther since you have 4x45nm so two 90 equivelent cpu's a much longer area. With the dual core its totally not necessary to go with the long method unless of courese you wanna.

I've ALWAYS (50+ builds) spread mine out very thin and have NEVER had heat issues. To each his/her own.

Thats the method I ahve allways used also. Works great I jsut dont like people making drawings and posting stuff when they dont know what it looks like underneath. The reasons that are being given for dual core c2d's is totally wrong. I wish more people would take a look at the real thing before posting stuff they have heard. Oh well as long as they use some thats the biggest thing I guess.
