(I was wondering if Arctic Ceramique will do - I have no experience in applying thermal paste) - what is easier to remove if I apply a TIM wrong? ;>

I spent a few hours yesterday reading about it (it's common problem at MSI motherboards - quite frustrating taking into consideration how much money I paid for this mobo :/
Thats fine or you guys can call me Mike.

the operation was a success! I used as5 but ceramique would work. The main thing is that it will only take a very very little bit.

BTW going from bubblegum to as5 with less then 8 hrs break in I have droped 12+* off my NB

Its just a slight set back. Who knows, maybe MSI is in some thing with AMD and they use that TIM on purpose so the board dont fry, but make it where ppl too lazy / dont know what they are doing, wont be able to OC further because they know the NB is important. By using a junky tim, you get a hotter nb, which limits OC potential from all AM3 CPUs. Its a conspiracy! lol

I am currently my gpu in the second slot and it is reporting 16x. I think all slots are 16x but only in crossfire can two of them be 16x and then with tri-fire 2 are 16x and 1 is 8x and then quad-fire all four are 8x.

This is awesome. Next time I redo the loop I will have to do this.

What do you guys think about my temps? I am using AS5 on a C3 965 with a very mild OC - 3.7GHz @ 1.4V on bios 1.6. I have two 80mm fans coming into the case and a 120mm exhaust plus what the PSU throws out.
I've had my CPU cooler for a few years. I'm wondering if this is why my temps are not as nice as others because it is relatively small. CoolerMaster Hyper TX2.
When I was converting one of my BluRays down, my CPU ran right at 59C with 3.8GHz!! Tmax I think I saw on here was 60 or 62 and that had me somewhat worried. I previously had an X3 720 OC'd quite a bit to 3.7GHz and temps on it were very reasonable- it was almost 0.1V higher too. I know the TDP is greater on this 965, but should temps be this much higher?
The AS5 has went through its cure time and I've checked the mounting of the cooler on the CPU. I've also checked to see if some rogue program is running in the backroung. At idle I'm right at 1% or less usage. I'd like to be at 4.0GHz, but if my load temp is 59C @ 3.8GHz obviously that isn't smart. Usually voltages are the limiting factor for me, not temps.

Ambient - 21C

Idle - using Everest
CPU- 38C
NB - 48C
Motherboard - 34C

Load - Prime95 large FFTs @ 10mins
CPU - 62C!
NB - 52C
Motherboard - 36C

Does anyone know the mounting method of the Dr. Mos cooler? I know its one long heat pipe for a few different things, but i was wondering if the gum like TIM is what holds it down, and it just needs peeled, or if there's any specific mounting. Going off memory, I assume its glued on with the TIM.

I would say it is time to get a new heat sink. From my understanding a the megahalem(sp) is your best bet or a true 120. I believe the megahalem is cheaper and has better mounting for the am3 socket. If money isnt an issue, go water. I run 4.0ghz @1.5/ 2.6ghz nb @1.28 volts and idle around 30c. Depends on ambient.

Check the OP. There is a link for the mounting of the heatsink.

Is there one around $40 that would be a good jump from what I have right now? I saw plenty looking around but I don't know how they are performance wise.

The Scythe Mugen performed very well for $34 in a review I found @ frozenCPU

Thanks! I haven't checked the OP since this thread started I don't think, lol. Ugh, gotta remove the mobo, that's disappointing. I was hopign the glue held it down, BUT, now that I think about it, how would it mount once replaced with AS5!? DUH! Sounds like a good thing to do, and I got a couple small fans that I will see if I can mount for increased cooling, unless the drop is significant enough. What do you guys think?
