Oh!! Almost missed the joke! You CAD!!

It's snowing!! The lady next doors car got broken into last night! Dang, now I gotta clear a space in the Garage!
Better make space in the garage fast.
1. to protect your car from the weather.
and
2. to protect it from theft.

I had the rust check done on my jeep cherokee and they sprayed the entire underneath, all the nooks and crannys, with a rust resistant gel like spray.
And I painted the underneath with rubberized asphalt.
It is totally worth it to protect your car from rust and salt

If the answer is no then clean off the thermal pad and apply the mx3. if the answer is yes then you need to make an insulator out very thin semi rigid plastic to sit atop of the transistors and apply the mx3 to only the chip and re-seat the hs.
No the transistors did not go as deep in the thermal pad as the chip.
My solution was to clear the thermal pad where the chip imprinted it only.

So I made a tiny square of metal show in the middle. big enough for the chip only. The cleaned it up nicely, and put a small small dab of mx2 on the metal.
Seated it into the mobo and rotated it so the original imprints of the transistors are in a different position. Therefore the transistors now have to start "digging in the thermal pad" all over again. So to speak.

What do you think?

I'm slowly CADing the scout (on my scout) so that eventually I can export it to sketchup for the rest of you to use. I'll let you know when school gives me the free time to finish it.
What sort of file are you going to be exporting it out as? IGES, STEP or something else??? What software are you using to do your CAD work? Almost looks like Pro-E to me...... Really nice work there! I know how time consuming drawing something up like that can be.

Right now I am working in Solidworks. I'm planning on first exporting it as a .STL file so that I can then convert it to .SKP . That way people can view it in google sketchup since that program is free unlike most CAD software.

Just please Paint those Xiggys with at least one coat. You won't kill them. They are embarrassed about the color to start with.. LOL
And the front rails on the Hard Drive rack would not be complete without a Red stripe down both sides and a red or black HDD Cover made of your famous Plexi.



Beautiful build General Kev-b.
really nice! good work!

Hi everybody!! Been playing with the table saw today, made some perfect triangles <oxymoron> for the bathroom cabinet which is coming along nicely.

Here's an announcement!! Remember I said I'll tell you when a game makes my second vid card kick into gear? Well, it happened last night STALKER call of Pripyat made it run it's little core off, got up to a full 63c!!

@ Crucial: Yeah, scrape it off, might want to use a little diluted rubbing alcohol to get the sticky stuff off. Put a thin layer of MX-2 on & where it touches the "techy things", probably tranisitor groups, it will transfer the heat to the heatsink. BTW, don't know if you used it before but MX-2 is one of those tarry heat transfer goops, it can take up to 24 hours to set but you usually see most effect within 2.
Yes using stockcooler, but have one of those xigmatic(or something like that) from my old PC - why anyways?

But you have to +rep H969 also. While I was thinking the same idea as him, he posted that idea up also.
