Cool...thanks for helping me out. I was afraid I put the thermal paste on incorrectly as this was my first time using a heat-sink with direct contact heat-pipes.

guys w/ the EK block, when I did the stock heatsink mods, I noticed a yellow film on the nb and sb, did you guys take that off? I get my block tomorrow and I dont want to run into any surprises. thanks

I have that film on SB but not on NB. I would think that you would more likely want to keep them in place werm. I know I don't qualify(yet) for the water block part of your question, but thought I should chime in on the NB/SB films.

I don't know if it makes a difference(film or no film) but why take the chance if you don't have too, so long as the chips are exposed to mate to the heatsink.

Probably if you enable LLC you won't get that BSOD. What LLC does is when under stress or high load, the motherboard gives the cpu up to .05v over what you set it @. So in essence you can run a slightly lower vcore than you would need for running Prime and being stable. If you enable LLC you should see the vcore increase to as high as 1.522v at times.

Got yourself a pretty nice OC there too!

EDIT: actually a couple hours into prime is when the NB really gets stressed, so take a look at the NB frequency and cpu/NB voltage also. You are probably running the NB @ like 3Ghz without enough voltage to the cpu/NB. I can't set cpu/NB any lower than like 1.5v @ 3GHz + on the NB.

Wermad, I left the film on the SB, but my nb the film came off. I was scared that the block would make contact with the little metal guys but it did not. If you are worried you can use some little squares of electrical tape to insulate the block form the chip! Have fun! Is pretty easy to install!
