Hi all,

I just got my Megashadow today and I have a question. I have a lapped CPU and some people have said I do not have to lap the Mega and I have seen others in this club lap them. What would be some of your recommendations for this? I have seen a few of you say you have lapped yours.

Hey Turtle,

Since your CPU is already lapped it may be a good idea for you to lap the Mega as well. Prolimatech says not to lap for 2 reasons:

1) Will void your warranty, but I think we have voided a lot of warranties in our builds
2) They have machined it to a calculated point at which they think it cools best on a stock CPU/IHS which is somewhat convex in areas.

That being said, your CPU/IHS is lapped flat so IMO a lapped/flat Mega would probably work out best for you. My 2 cents but if you do end up going this route give us some before and after results

Well a pin came off my 550. Got stuck to the plastic on the socket on my MB. So I am getting a new 965 monday. So I am not gonna lapp either for now. Now sure what happened but I got burnt plastic.

But I do have another question using killas post I made my own fan clips for my panflo for my mega shadow. But I got finger prints on the shadow. What do you guys use to clean them? I don't want to ruin the finish .

Yes, I'd also like to know how to clean it. Mine got all dull and dusty. I just recently cleaned it off by rubbing it with my thumb and a little water. That seemed to help, but it isn't as shiny as I'd like it to be.

I also dusted it out and took some better pics




This one also shows how you can attach a 38mm fan with the 25mm fan clips and zipties. This was not my idea, someone else on here did it first, I don't remember who.

That was me

Real secure isn't it

To try and answer the cleaning...my best guess would be something light like windex...don't take my word for it but im pretty sure windex doesn't harm too much...hell I think you can drink a good amount of it without dying

Hi pretty new here but i just got one of these too


i was just wondering how do most of you wire up the push/pull on the fans?
do you splice the 2 together to the cpu fan plug? or run one to that and one to an optional fan plug?

thanks

Well, I use a fan controller for all of my 120mm fans (3 SA 9G-H1011, and 1 Scythe SFlex G).

Run one to the optional fan plug, or plug them into molex with a converter.
