Yup. I actually have the tools to do this but it was just easier since you really only need to grind down a millimeter off the standoffs to get it right. All you need are plers and a rock lol. I replace the TIM on all my motherboards anyway so while I was there I ground down the sinks on concrete. They are aluminum and easy to work with.

*Edit* My temps were 60c before and 35c after grinding and applying MX-2. Don't use AS-5 for this it has a 200 hour cure time and it is capacitive meaning it can cause wonkiness if it gets in the wrong places.

Are you guys removing the yellow waxy substance and applying TIM ? Or just applying the TIM over the Yellow wax ?

I just did my M4a79xtd and had a devil of a time removing the bubblegum like
substance. All while trying not to disturb the insulator ring.

Yeah, the yellow thermal pad has to come off. Essentially they are meant to do the same thing, so it's like removing the pre applied TIM from your CPU stock cooler before applying aftermarket TIM.

Is Ceramique okay or should I use the Shin-Etsu I'm getting with my H50?

I was thinking of ordering a IV (and AMD x6) but read a lot of reviews on newegg about loose parts and overheating NB. So I was thinking of going with the less appealing (dont like the PCI layout at all) III.

So without reading thru 90+ pages.. how is the IV working out?

I have a Crosshair IV mobo and 965BE cpu and am using what is sold as 2x2GB Patriot 1600Mhz sticks but you have to change the settings in the bios to
dram o.c.profile to profile #1= 9-9-9-24-2T-1.65V
to get them to 1600mhz.

would the system perform better at lower timings and speed?
If so what should i set them at and what voltage?

Also if anyone else has the same mobo/cpu combo what are the optimal settings to be set manually in the board for optimal performace and 100% stability CPU?

CPU Ratio
CPU BUs Frequency
DRAM Freq
CPU/NB freq
ht link

ram timings

cpu volt
cpu/nb volt
cpu vdda volt
ht volt
nb volt
nb 1.8v volt
sb
vddr
vddpcie I have a diamind 5770HD non oc edition
dram ctrl ref
dram data ref

cpu llc on/off
cpu/nb llc on/off
cpu spread on/off
pcie spread

thanks ahead of time
