That's the long way, when i have to heat up my IC7 ( another horribly thick tim ) i just stick it in a bowl of water and put it in the microwave for a few minutes.

Not really, I mean if you somehow found a way to spread it I would be quite impressed to be honest but think of the dot method as a way of saving time and frustration (as well as making sure everything is applied evenly and the TIM conforms to the curves naturally).

I didn't want to sacrifice the bottom hard drive cage and as well as modding the case. I actually originally planned to mount the back radiator internally as well but I failed to measure that it didn't fit because although it fitted a 140mm fan, it was like rim to rim. I didn't feel like shipping it back and getting a 120mm so I just decided WTH I'll just mount it on the back. If I feel my CPU temperatures are great I will just buy a 120mm rad later on and sell this one. I'm thinking about doing the same with the bottom one because there is not enough clearance on the bottom to setup the fan to blow though the rad rather than pull from it.

Part of the angled fittings arrive. I ordered 8 from Sidewinder but then they e-mail me back two days later and say they can only send 5 because they don't have any more.

I ordered 3 more later that night from PPC. These things are seriously gorgeous.

Since IC7 contains diamonds that works fine I bet, however, that would be bad advice for anyone using thermal paste with metal (such as silver) in the paste.

Microwaving + metal = New microwave.


This is simply an amazingly good build Open1Your1Eyes0. Can't wait to see how you run the loops.
