I had horrible temps with the stock H50 fan. When I switched to an aftermarket fan, that made the difference.

I doubt it's much higher than you would get with all 4 cores, maybe 100-300mhz at best.

Way to show some attitude when asking for help.

You never did answer my question to you about what you mean by removing the "heatpipes" or if you meant to leave the northbridge and southbridge chips exposed without heatsinks at all.

If you're going to complain at least try not to ignore the only person trying to help you.

I'm going to WC the NB and SB, the only thing that is going to be exposed are the voltage regulators.

The mosfets are what catch fire on this board with the X6 chips. You cannot leave them exposed.

how about you use a little common sense. what do you think is gonna happen when you remove the large heatsink from the mobo? i guess thats a dumb question since you dont even know what the name of components being cooled (voltage meter?).

Ditto!! + if the mosfet heatsink burns your finger when you touch it, I doubt your board would even run. I'm on my second replacement board. I haven't changed out the TIM under the NB/SB and I can't feel any heat from my heatsink. Also how do you think we got over 8000 posts here if all we did was to brag about our OC?

We have a lot of helpful members in this club and if you're not helping us or someone else out and only *****ing, then I got two words for you: SHUT IT!
