Anyone have advice for applying TIM on a core i5?
This will be my first time doing this lol.
Also will acetone do the job of cleaning?

Volatile chemicals like Acetone, Methyl, degreasers, etc almost all leave a residue. Whether that's a problem depends on the specifics, but it can cause corrosion and subsequent heat issues. They can also damage the coating manufacturers use on the PCB. High purity Isopropyl Alcohol (70%-99%) is about the only thing that does not leave a residue in the metal pores. If you use one of the others, it's generally recommended to clean them off with, you guessed it, Isopropyl Alcohol. 99% is preferable but 70% will work in a pinch, just remember that its 30% water and you will have to let it evaporate for a bit longer. I use q-tips but cotton balls work as well. Hope that helps

I would just think that peicing together the same configuration as the H50 (or any single rad pre-fab system) but using quality pump, rad, and adding a reservoir to the equation would improve cooling over the H50.

In any event, I came across a post over at Toms Hardware where someone else was thinking about the the same thing I am now. Here is his schematic ...
http://i366.photobucket.com/albums/o...eband/Loop.jpg
Would something like this be effective?

Pricing this out though, I’m getting about $280 for res, pump, rad, block, tubing, fittings, and coolant. Even crediting back the $80 or so for the H50 (assuming I return it), that’s still about $200 – maybe not cost effective?
That looks nice, but i whould say go Pump>rad>CPU>Rad>Res cause then the pump will get some cooler water and it will etend it's life, if you fancy waiting a few min i could throw together a kit for you

But if you mount the rads in the top where theree already are fans i think you must mount the fan on the vertical mouunt on the back or it will hit the top fan.
Or you could use a 3x5,1/4" adapter and mount the rad in the front beezels and mount the second one in the back

Low Budget:
CPU: Enzotech Sapphire $34.99
Rad: 2xSwiftech MCR120 $60ish
Pump: EK-DCP 2.2 $46.95
Res: Microsres $24.50
Barbs: 8 Fat Bitspower ones $22, If you are on a tight budget compressionfittings aren't realy a choice cause they cost almost twice the barbs, Get some Zipties too act as clamps.
Tubing: 10´ Tygon $19
Coolant: Destilled water from grocery shop (or Pharmacy) + PT_Nuke, try too avoid deionized water cause it has some corrsive abilites, though it is non conductive it may seam apealing but all waters mixed with metals will become conductive after some time.
Thermal Interface Material (Thermal Goo): MX-3 or IC-7 if you can find, both are equal in thermal conductivity so choose the one you can get for the cheapest.
Fans: 2 Yate Loon Medspeed $13.90

Total=$222ish without Shipping

This is asuming you live in the states, otherwise just say so and I'll make a kit designed for non Americans

Just 1 thing that you might like to know (if you didn't already). The cores on a quad core run in a straight line. Have a look at the arctic silver instructions, right at the end there is the i3, i5 &i7 with a simple description on how to find which plane they run on -> http://www.arcticsilver.com/ins_rout...2intelas5.html

Cleaning the chip and sink, I would use nothing less than 90% alc. and a filter coffee filter(or any lint free cloth). Don't push to hard and never apply the cleaning medium directly to the chip.

It is very nice. But naming it after a dark demon. Whatever floats your boat. Actually my favorite angel is Michael. Now that is one Bad Axxed trooper.

hmm did think that a bit odd when I read that on the modrigs component list :s The part number matched, asumption lead me to believe that then it was the right part. Not that it matters much, still a nice board
