Ittl be just as easy to lap as any other hs.
And you can expect about 29idle - 39 load depending on ambient and ur case.
And that would be at like 1.65

It is kind of a PITA. It shutters until you get it going. Use water or some other liquid for lube. Start with 200 Grit sandpaper, preferably wet/dry type. I went to 320,400,600,800,1000. You could probably skip the 320 and 600 if you wanted. I was lapping my processor at the same time so I had many grades on hand. Make sure your surface is flat, I used a mirror but a peice of glass would work to, just as long as it is flat. Take the fan off the BT. Grab the beast between the pipes at the copper base. Spread you hand to keep it steady and get after it. Somewhere in the AMD build logs you will find my pics of it. Link

Good luck with the lap mi amigo.

thanks for that advice sporadic, but i dont plan to lap my ihs and the base of the BT is probably fairly smooth already so ill skip 320 and 600 i think.

im sure its not that of a PITA to install, but only thing im worried about is that some people have been saying it wobbles a bit...will this be much of a problem, or is it that theyve just not tightened it enough, also my pc is on its side so the Big typhoon's weight wont be pulling down on the motherboard, it will be just resting on the mb, so i dotn think ive got much worry about my mb snapping or anything, another thing, where can i get this cleaning alcohol in the uk?

HOW heavy is it!? LOL. Rubbing alcohol works fine, the new stuff works great, but i don't know how expensive it is.
post #10 of 14
You cant find rubbing alcohol in the uk unless you are a chemist or doctor, I personally use lighter fluid
