Alright, guess I'll look into either grabbing a used pot or just go ahead and get a new one from KPC. Thanks guys

...wondering if any of the seasoned sub-zeroers have run a CPU pot w / o tightening it down w/ the nuts headscratch.gifheadscratch.gif

I ask because per earlier post, I'm recycling various X79 / X99 / Z97 / Z77 mobos from an office environment. Now, two of my existing mobos (X99, X79) are fully prepped, including with back-plate and the four long screws used to hold down the pot, but I rather not pull those apart...

The pot I use weighs about 4 pounds fully dressed and already makes me a bit nervous re. the pressure it puts onto the CPU / mobo just by its sheer weight.

I do have shorter 'guide screws' and custom-fitted closed-cell insulation templates for the bottom of the pot for each of the other mobos...w/ that in place and careful placement of the pot ensuring a good seal after boot up, is the weight of the pot enough for sub-zero benching, or are the hold down plate / nuts imperative ? Thanks for letting me know smile.gif

I have a glass table I bench on so what I do is put a drop of paste on the table, set the foam gasket around it and then put the pot down while I watch from under the table to see the spread , I do this for checking the gasket size to make sure it's big enough yet hugs the pot but you can try this to check the paste as well.

...tx smile.gif ...I've done some test-fitting already (before that stupid flu intervened), and separating the non-tightened pot from the CPU after applying some TIM showed some good spread patterns, but I actually haven't run it w/ power-on...and I recall during CPU tests, that DICE / LN2 really starts to 'bubble' as the CPU gets fully stressed, so I hope there are folks here who have done a full LN2 or DICE run w / o hold-down nuts

I did it once I am not seasoned it didn't turn out to well for me when I did it I had to go buy mounting nuts I am sure the more experienced people would know how to put it on though.

Done it a few times yes, just make sure the pot is decently heavy and you spread the paste correctly and you should be fine.
