Any idea why this might be?
I believe thats normal once you unlock cores on a phenom.

Well I'm back. I lapped both the CPU and H50 using glass method with 800, 1000, 1500 and 2000 grit. Got it all to a nice shine. Re-applied MX-3 TIM, put everything back together, flashed it up, ran HWMonitor and Prime 95 blended and the end result of all this work?????................ 2 degree drop. Yup 2 whole degrees. Idle is now 29C at 19C ambient, max under prime 95 was 51C. I was expecting more given all the wild claims on the internet regarding lapping.

My conclusion? I wouldn't recommend the effort and expense. Don't get me wrong. I'm overall happy with my results for a 4.020 overclock at 1.5 volts. I'm just thinking that I've pretty much done all I can with this H50 so I'll stop playing around with it now.

It probably depends on how concave your CPU's IHS is. If it's really flat, you won't see much gain in lapping. My 1090T was really flat so I never even considered lapping it. The same goes for the coarseness of the heatsink's base finish.

Which steel cutting dremel attachment do you use? I'm thinking about buying a dremel just to cut a hole in my CM690 (SECC material) case

I used these heavy duty cutting wheels which are also strong enough for cutting bolts or shortening those 3 inch 6/32 screws if you need to

Then shouldn't we all be cutting out our case grills? Mine has more disruption than Whitedog's intake. I'll put that on the list.

Hmm, I think I may need to remount the pump.

I've noticed though that when I start Prime 95 my temps don't steadily climb but they jump up to say the high 40's from the idle low 20's and then start the climb up higher.

Should I try removing the pump, using Arcticlean to remove the paste, and then reapply more properly now that I have the installation down better?

This is a stupid question, and has nothing to do with this thread topic...But on my PSU(corsair 850hx) there's a power sata cable. On the power sata cable there are 5 heads(4 L heads which seem to be for the harddrive and 1 for the mobo.) On my PC build, I'm using 4 hard drives... Am I suppose to or CAN I use that one power cable for this configuration? Meaning, I'd be daisy chaining the power cables to each drive? Yes, I've looked up installation guides for harddrives but not one mentions on how to install for multiple harddrives. Would I need a separate power cable for each?

Sorry for the unrelated topic, I felt that a whole separate thread wasn't needed for such a simple stupid question. And thanks in advance for bearing with...

You can use one for all your drives. Hard drives don't use as much power as you might think
