got me cpu done, my temps have dropped 3 degrees taking into account what metalicamaster3 said regarding stuck sensors (btw they are not always locked to 34 degrees, they go higher, jus t no lower than 34, is this still the case)
still cant get the thing completely done though, around the edges its still a little scuffy, the soap and water job did the trick, however it must have taken me 4-5 hours of just sitting there and very quickly
going back and forth with the cpu and adding the tiniest amount of soap and water when needed pics are attached anyway, get this though, i was slowly gettin more and more sozzled whilst doing this and i accidently sprayed a very small amount of carling over the pins on the cpu as well as me Pentium D 915 as they were sittting next to each other, but i cleaned it off, its ok.....then i put back in my pc and it was fine, i banged on a game of crysis and 10 mins in BSOD, but not because of CPU because my new GTX 285 had frikin died!!!!! im writing this now on my gtx but in safe mode and the display is frikin messed up badly pictures attached) so after the third time of lapping the cpu and all the time spent my frikin card dies, i got it for Â£97 as well, wont be able to afford a new card for ages now!!!!!!!!!!!!
