Dream Rig Rebuild - Page 2

I used a rice grain sized dab of TC, seems to have been about right. Notice the bald spot in the middle. More on that shortly.

I checked the surface of my CPU cooler with a razer and decided it was not level enough. Another clue was that it rocked like a child's toy when I set on a truly flat surface. So I decided to lap the sucker. This is after a few dozen passes. Notice the bald spot corresponding to the mark left in the thermal compound.

And after a few thousand passes on the 320 grit I decided to rename it the Thermalround. I don't want to lap the proc yet, so I settled for a rough 1,000 grit shine.

These are my results running Heaven 2.1 just after reformatting. There was a significant improvement during in-game performance. I can run Bad Company 2 at max graphics and average 62 fps. Almost makes me feel silly for buying a second 5870!

Please ignore this, just testing a signature change.

Here she is, all hot and sexy.

The 4.1 OC seems stable, though it needs more rigorous testing. I ran a 2.5hr Large FFP stress test in Prime95. Core-0 settles at 77C during this test, idles at about 35C. Ambient temperature is about 17C.
