{Finished} Modded TRUE + case = Temps like water *56K WARNING* - Page 9

post #81 of 107
@OP: Great job on the mod!

...

BTW ... the washer helps with pressure when using the default spring loaded screws from thermalright, but you can get even more pressure (MB bending, even with backplate) by doing a bolt through on your TRUE:

...



...

I tried the washer mod on my default mounting gear but I'd lapped the TRUE and CPU so much that the pressure was still not enough.

Basically, I wanted initial mount pressure so great that I could not spin the TRUE, even with some force, once mounted. So I broke down and did a bolt through mod that gave me a lot more tightening room on the final lock down.

Worked like a charm.

I'm idling around 32C now with my Q6700 at 3.8ghz. Room is a chilly 23C.

Thank you for posting that. THAT is exactly what I'm going to do with mine. I was wanting to do the washer mod, but I like the bolt-through. Those spring screws have my lapped TRUE and Q6600 spinning around like crazy even tightened all the way, and I hate it. Did you do the washer AND the bolt? Do you think it would help to do both, or not really? REP+!!!

I was going to get AC MX-2, but I saw that and said what the hell. I will be applying the liquid thermal with the CPU out of the mobo socket in case I spill any. After I'm done applying it, I'll then put the CPU into the mobo socket. That way I don't accidentally spill some of the thermal over the mobo causing it to short. I just hope seating the TRUE on top of the IHS make it splash the thermal all over the place.
After you apply it to the IHS, put it upside down on the base of the TRUE, that way you will see if it will explode BEFORE actually putting it on the motherboard. I would not take any chances.

I would do that, but I didn't lap off enough copper to need the extra pressure, and I can't move the TRUE (spin/rotate). I also remove the TRUE a lot for various reasons, and it looks like it would be hell to get those bolts off.

Still good idea for those of you who lapped a lot! Me don't know whether to do it with or without the bearing, though.

You mean putting the CPU on the heatsink instead of the heatsink onto the CPU to see if it'll splatter/splash right?

Exactly. You should always test the TIM before you install the CPU, to see which method covers the most surface more thinly. Just make sure to wash the IHS and TRUE with alcohol after each test so the next one is not uhhh..can you say 'biased' in English? I think you can.

Ok thanks. I'll keep that in mind when the thermal and other parts get here.

Hmmm....with a pencil mod can probably squeeze another C or so off that....

After-effects of pencil-mod???? I keep thinking my mobo or CPU will blow up or something....

EDIT: 87 replies, more than two of the stickies...Come on, I wanna beat the stickies!
