post #61 of 148
If it's better then mega I definetly want it. My TRUE is keeping my Cpu in mid 70s when folding ad I want better than that. My main concern is fit. My TRUE black can only go vertical because my damn classy nb is so crooked. So I can't see this fitting

Did you lap and pressure mod? Also for $20 you can drop about 5C with some Indigo Xtreme TIM. Review here: http://vapor.skinneelabs.com/TIM/IndigoX/IndigoX.html

Interesting, I didn't realize they were different systems, but I just looked at the other instruction sheets and it is different. I still think you could pressure mod it... stick a big washer in the middle of the straight bar, underneath it of course.

I could I just think it really needs to be lapped. I may be able to research tge heatsink but I'm not confident to take my motherboard out and dont feel like doing all the work either. Hopefully the opening in the back of my case and reseat the nb so I can fit the noctua. So has anyone on here gotten the noctua is it really better then the mega and by how much? Since true is couple degrees more than mega and this noctua could take off more then i would definetly get

So, any other air solution for me? True, D14, Mega are all big.
@LarsMarkelson: any suggestion about low profile RAM? TY.

I also considered the H50, I love its small size, but how about the evaporation and refilling? And what if it leaks? And the air flow, too. Modding the case doesn't seem like an solution to me 'cause I'm new to this cool stuff and I'm tool-less. Any suggestion about setting the fans?
TYVM.
Any suggestion for me mates?
Thanks.
