Hey, can anyone attest to the Scythe Mugen 2 fitting on this motherboard? I want to buy one when it comes into stock http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Mugen%20scythe On Newegg, its the cheapest price I've seen for it on the internetz and the Egg is reliable so I'm waiting for it to come into stock (hint hint: if anyone can find it for cheaper at a reputable site new, that'd be sweet) So yeah, just wondering if anyone knows if this will fit on the motherboard? I'm quite sure if I unscrew the bowl thingie setting up airflow on my stock cpu fan on my case that it will fit in my pretty big case.

I have a Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme and it fit with an inch+ by the RAM slots and also on the NB HS...The Tuniq has the same build as the Mugen at least IMO

AFAIK, the reference clock (not ht ref clock ) has never been like the FSB as AMD CPUs', since I've been messing with them (socket 754/939), have always had an integrated memory controller. Where as the memory controller on the older intels was part of the board.
The ref clock is a set point for all of the components (PCI, PCIe, HTlink, etc.) to time themselves to, that's why it's not HTrefClock but simply ref clock. It is the exact same thing as the base clock on the new i series intel CPUs'.

Every AMD cpu I have lapped has been concave. I need to figure out a more efficient way of lapping. Every time I do it, it takes for freaking ever to get the thing done.

I lapped my 965 a couple weeks back, and it was so bowl shaped, I stopped after 1hr and ate chips and salsa out of it!

Seriously, though, it was majorly cupped, concave, whatever you want to call it. I had about 3mm~ of copper showing all around the edges, yet could still read the writing in the center of the chip! No kidding!

Every time I tried to pull the water block off of it, it would form a suction and pull the chip with it right out of the board. I was always so freakin' scared I would hurt the chip!

Oh, and the really odd thing.... it doesn't seem to have helped the temps at all, maybe 1 or 2*, maybe.

yeah I've sanded forever on this cpu and it seems it's still unflat. I'm gonna go at it with some 120 grit a little longer

GOOD ONE Marc!!! Aren't most Aftermarket heatsinks convex to match the concave shape of the IHS's on the CPU's? Maybe that's why it didn't really do much for the temps... Just made a larger gap around the outside edge maybe. IDK.
