680i NB and SB TIM Replacement Pics...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I got super bored tonight so I pulled my mobo out and pulled off the NB and SB heatsink to apply some arctic silver. I haven't found any program yet that tells me my NB or SB temps but with SLI I've noticed the heat pipe gets very hot, much hotter than with a single card.

Removing water block and cables.

Mobo tray with GTs removed.

Removed heatsink. Look how much TIM is caked on there Stuff felt like clay in my hands.

Arctic Silver Ceramique

Cleaned old stuff off best I could with alcohol, new TIM applied.

Nice line on the CPU.

Cards in.

Back in case.

Done


Not sure if it decreased temps because lack of monitoring software that gives me such info... Heatpipe feels a tad cooler, and it has to do better than the crap that was on there...

EVEREST Ultimate Edition 4.20.1261 beta or newer beta version show MCP temp which is SB temp.
I think NB and SB of 680i mainboards need active cooling if you want to overclock your system.I myself have P5N32-E SLI which use 680i as chipsets.
