Hey on the res, just get some "Locktite" brand dual compound apoxy. That stuff is Tough as nails. I used it to reapir a small leak in an Alluminum Oxide Rad. Worked great! You just have to make sure that the surfaces being bonded to are roughened up a bit with some sand paper and then wiped off. Then you'll be good to go after 24hours (fully cured) 5 minute bonding time though! Stuffs the Dogs howl!
Yeah Loctite epoxy is pretty hardcore. Some of the threadlocker I use at work bonds so hardcore that the parts have
to be heated with a torch in order to come apart.
On a side note, whatever you're applying the Epoxy to, or pretty much any
other bonding agent, the surfaces that you're applying it to must
be free of any sort of residues from oil, antifreeze, grease, etc. If the surface is contaminated, it will not bond.

I can tell you it is very easy to do and hard to mess up. What I would recommend tho would be to use a thermal pad. For one you dont have to worry about using too much and you dont have to worry about reapplying.
I also tell you that before I did it this time I was seeing idle of 83 and now have an idle of 66
Decided to use my mega till I can afford to get a real res, all new barbs and a 655.
Thanks as always tho
Have you guys tried pressure modding the heatsink for the NB?
And I guess I must've lucked out because my board, when I used it, would load at ~69C in crossfire, according to Everest.
Been outta the GD70 loop for a little bit now, does it support the new hexacores? Any issues?
