Dunking an NH-D14 into a bucket filled with water and isopropyl alcohol for a minute - Page 4

post #31 of 42
When you need to clean metal like a HSF, do like the peeps that own and shoot black powder muzzleloading firearms.
Very hot water and soap! Rinse in very hot water, that you can still hold for about 1/2 minute. From most tap water is good 120-124F
The metal will absorb the heat very quickly, and it will dry almost as fast, from the heat that dissipates the water off.
Some enthusiast will preheat the oven and put the barrel in there for 2-3 min also for quick drying.

This! FTW!

I should have remembered this. My wife keeps a gallon jug of white vinegar for cleaning. And we use vinegar based Windex because we have birds. You will need several rinses to remove the vinegar smell, though.

Hang a car freshener in your case
post #36 of 42
lemon juice in warm water would be pretty good. (doesn't need too much). I use that to clean out the microwave oven.

the vinegar one as well would also work I think.

Smell isn't that strong anymore actually anyway
How much of both did you use and how well did it clean the fins?

I'm not too sure actually.... I think I dumped about 1/3rd of the detergent bottle in, and the rest was just very hot/warm tap water. I dropped it in, left it for around 5 minutes; when I took it out, couldn't smell that much anymore really. I didn't really want to go too far i.e. boiling water, I was more interested in getting the thing in my PC right away
And now that it's in, boy, it's great...... the Phenom II runs cool and as a result I've been able to drop the voltage two notches to 1.425V for 4.05Ghz

See it was as easy as pie. Glad you got it sorted out. Post some load temps and pictures, when you get time that is.
post #40 of 42
