[Official] Asus CrossHair IV Formula/Extreme Club - Page 141

post #1401 of 13131
I pulled the NB/SB heatsink off last night. There appeared to be satisfactory contact on both chipsets. The standoffs were brass & there is also a stainless looking set. The other thing I noticed were foam blocks that looked like they may be spacers for the heatsink over the chipset.

I'm trying to get my RAID array up, using my old Raptors, but one of the HD's smoked when plugged in. Hopefully I can then load my cloned OS & files on to them when I get done.

I'll try to view the chipset temperatures later tonight.

That's how it usually goes. And that's not foam, it's yellow wax that they use in place of something actually decently conductive of heat.

Nope. Wrong. Sorry.

They are indeed foam blocks and they are black. For some reason I was missing one of mine on the SB. It's no biggie but it's definitely gone. I noticed it was missing after I pulled up the heatsinks and saw there was a spot where the double sided tape was still affixed to the heatsink. I looked everywhere around my work surface and there was hide nor hair of it to be found.

The yellow stuff IS indeed TIM and not wax. If it were wax, as soon as it got hot it would melt all over the place. Not very good if you wish to use it as a heat conductive material over the long haul.

Well actually the wax comment was a play on how poorly conductive the stuff is.

And hm? What foam?

The black foam pads are diametrically opposite the standoffs. So two standoffs at bottom right and top left, and two pads top right and bottom left(depending on how you look at them).

The same pattern is repeated for both the NB and SB heatsinks.

Similar in height to the standoffs they must help keep the heatsinks from hitting any components as the assembly is placed on the mobo and screwed in.

It would be pretty sweet if someone with a video camera could upload a video to YouTube of what is required to fix this NB issue. Just a thought if someone is ambitious.

No need, it's just two standoffs that you have to file down. take off your mainboard heatsink, and you will see them.

Looks like I was lucky, my NB doesn't seem to overheat at all!

Sucks that theres no IDE port, now I have to get drivers from another computer since I'm still running on an old IDE writemaster.
