Is Lapping my Tuniq Tower 120 and Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 worth it? - Page 4

The answer to your question is that the black pin protector on the motherboard is to be removed (obviously), and the little "door" that is latched down on the side, holding down the CPU, goes beneath the Tuniq Tower 120.

As a suggestion, I find the easiest way to install the Tuniq Tower is as follows:
1) Place the backplate onto the back of the motherboard in the proper position, then lay the motherboard flat on the ground (with the usable side facing up) on an anti-static surface, such as the plastic packaging the motherboard came in. If you do not have the tape on the backplate anymore for whatever reason, cutting double-sided tape into rectangles and placing it on the part of the backplate that contacts the motherboard (it looks like a square "ridge", sticking up from the rest of the backplate) works well.
2) Put the CPU in the socket, properly oriented, and lock it down.
3) Apply the thermal paste in whatever fashion suits you; do not use too much. I prefer to put a grain of rice in the center, then stretch a plastic bag over my finger and use that to spread the paste evenly about the CPU IHS (the plastic bag is to prevent finger prints from propagating into the thermal paste pattern, and to keep your finger clean!).
4) Place the Tuniq Tower 120 (without the fan holder) onto the socket, with the H-bracket in place and centered on the little knob that is for that purpose. (Be sure to orient the tower such that when the fan holder is placed into the Tuniq Tower 120, the air blows toward the back of the case!)
5) Screw in a corner halfway, then screw in the opposite corner all the way, then finish up the original corner. Do the same with the remaining two corners, and when those are done, tighten all 4 screws as far as possible. You should be able to get all of the screws down such that you cannot see thread on any of them anymore when looking at the usable side of the motherboard.
6) With the Tuniq Tower 120 now securely attached, drop the fan holder into its slot and screw it in.
7) Install the motherboard and you're off!
If you do it properly, you can tighten it until you can no longer screw, which means better contact with the CPU and better heat transfer. My IHS is barely above ambient. Just like anything that needs to be tight, such as tire bolts, you tighten opposite ends in pairs.

Yes. It is.

My results at 3300MHz 1.3525 vcore.

Quote:
Results...
At a 27-28C Ambient temp...

Before:
Idle at 44-45
Load at about 58C

After:
Idle at 37C
Load at 47C
And about installing it correctly... Remove anything that would obstruct proper installation. I even removed my whole NB heatsink.

Be prepared and know exactly what screw goes where.

Most importantly. After paste is applied, hover your TT120 over the CPU and begin to screw in the screws. Screw in all 4 screws with a few turns and THEN let the tt120 contact the CPU. This insures the AS5 stays where it is supposed to any doesn't get smeared everywhere while you are fiddling around with screws.

Screw the screws until you can no longer see the threads on them.

Obviously screw them in in a diagonal fashion ensuring equal pressure.

Excellent, and talking about an Arctic Silver 5, would this one be recommended:

as in for what everything offers in the auction.

I thought you were suppose to only use a tiny bit of paste in the middle of the CPU. And when you apply pressure on it with the heatsink, it will even out by itself. No need to use a creditcard.

You can do it with spreading it around yourself, but I prefer to do so as it ensures an even spread across the entire IHS.

If you are lapping you need a very small amount. And there is no need to spread it out.

Look for "Audi's AS5 Mod" thread.

Put a mechanical pencil head on the end of your AS5 tube and use that to squirt out a very fine line down your CPU.

Very small line since you will be lapping both the IHS and the HSF.

Now I have to lap my Tower.. :-D

I think I need to pull off my northbridge heatsink tho. the tower and the northbridge heatsink touch each other and screwing down the tower incredibly tight put serious pressure on the heatsink.. might be affecting contact with the cpu, but the screws are still all screwed in evenly.

hey everyone! its me!

i would like to say that i have successfully attached my Tuniq Tower 120 and works perfectly! as in as well that the computer also boots up! getting past POST.

i am a very happy man, but it only worries me now that when i want to lapp my Tuniq Tower, i would have to take everything off, and it was one hell of a job of doing so, and hte fact that i was lucky to get certin bits working as well, that just miracalously worked!

also, i was thinking if getting a Silverstone FM121 to replace the fan inside the Tuniq Tower, as i have read or heard that it is the fastest 120mm fan out there that gives the best cooling results (please someone correct me if im wrong on this, as if there maybe a better one put there) and also, i hear that it is the loudest hting ever to come out of one's computer, and was wondering, if there was any way to silent it completely whatsoever.
