I guess this is a good thing. I'm going to use some Shin-Etsu and I dont think I'll cut my stand off. Also, I turn the stand off a little bit more becuase I notice a small gap between the stand off and the heat sink, also for some reason one of them wasn't straight but once I did it it fix the issue.

Please add me to the list!!!

I used a knife, the ones you use for tint and I cut them of, just like you remove a sticker of a window, but dont do this on the chips, then I use Lacker to clean the glue off and final Y use alcohol

Your SB still wasn't making full contact zenkis. The wax had a small indentation, but the wax is a good mm thick or so. Once you clean it off and apply an actual TIM it won't make contact at all. I recommend a test fit or two to make sure you are getting full contact.

i change those SB screw holder to NB heatsink.
and grind those NB screw holder way shorter. almost half shorter.and use it on SB.
if not, it really wont contact with your SB at all.
Unless you use a thick amount of TIM or thermal pad or like i said, grind those screw holder down shorter.

Reading all these post about those northbridgeTemp readings man. I haven't set up anything yet just waiting. That water block looks like the answer to those high temps. Just have to wait. And the price.
