post #481 of 13131
does anyone know for sure if for dual channel, the ram needs to be put is both black or both reds or is it one black and one red? Can the 2 slots farthest from the cpu be used for dual channel?

Sorry for the late reply, glad you figured it out Squirrel
did you remove those pads that were around the TIM on the nb heatsink? It seems that they are the exact reason that prevent my heatsink to touch my nb.. I put AS5 on the chip, put the heatsink back on, and took it off again to check whether it actually touches...the SB is touching just fine, but there was not a bit of TIM on the heatsink, it was still all on the chip the way I put it on.

the pads raise it too much
you might want thinner pads

LN2 is liquid nitrogen.
