I hope you can get everything worked out before April to. I don't understand your last question about the H100.
You should make this your avatar
Snap!! Thats was I was originally looking for, lol. I wanted a GIF of someone folding laundry..
With the H100 I was reading that using a different mounting system one that out could apply a high amount of pressure could drastically decrease temps. (my problem with everything I do is I get a high temp reading on realtemp..) So if I could drop the temp I can increase the OC.. So I am modding the dedi rig hoping to drop some serious temps.. I picked up this kit http://www.aquatuning.us/product_info.php/info/p3852_Waterblock-accessories-M4-universal--4-screws-.html
And I was mounting it as; Screw > Back Plate > Plastic Washer > Mobo > Plastic Washer > Nut > Thinking I need another Nut > H100 Block > Sprint > Knob thing(see kit).
Most kits some with some double sided screw with a thick solid part in the center to provide seperation between the mobo and the h100 block.. with this kit you have to provide that seperation with nuts and washers and stuff.. SO my question was how high do I have to make the build up before I put te h100 on..
I cant really have it; mobo > plastic washer > h100 block bc there would be a gap and you would see the screw threading.
This is what I was trying to do;
Looks like I dont need a second nut, I think my not having it I would be putin more pressure on the h100 so I think thats what I need to do..Edited by JMattes - 3/20/12 at 7:32am
