...gonna need to do some more research upon this . . .
; nothin against your word's and all,
i thought i just read somewhere about's this OCZ-Freeze was some outragious Tim, gotta find that article again;
as well as more about's using this IC Diamond stuff. . . . But, thank's for the Head's UP Aware/Alert - New's for this . . .

Haven't got to the point where I can put a screw in the fans yet but it looks like it won't be a problem.
I can not tell you yet if the IC Diamond works any better than the MX-3. I haven't done that card yet. In the charts I've seen it's supposed to be 1-5c cooler than MX-3 but if you have or had planned on using AS-5, you're much better off using the IC diamond.
If you already have the OCZ stuff, don't change it, it's pretty new so there aren't a whole lot of studies on it but it looks like it's only .5-1c higher.
I mainly meant, over stock TIM, with the exception of the H50's, be it a Cpu or Gpu, you're better off replacing it.
I have pics but I'll post them later.
Mine actually wasn't nearly as bad as most others I've seen.
Go to innovationcooling.com
for the charts they have.
I was working on numbers for you but Mindy came in and messed me up. I've got 4 ways to do a formula now and they all came out different.
@ Y'all. I asked this before, tell me, if I have 65.71 and 58.19, how do I find out what percent 58.19 is of 65.71. My answer came out as 11.43%. Is this correct?
Edit: Never mind, I figured it out. It's 12.9 percent more.Edited by BriSleep - 6/16/10 at 2:34am
