maybe i will do that then - strip it down and sell the parts in ebay ,

200 isnt bad , i would take it since i have no use for it now , have to think about it

Ok guys, I'm not kidding when I say this:
If you have the stock paste, be warned that your chip might fry.
I'll update you guys in a bit, removed and replaced the paste...or what you can call metal to metal.


Here's what I posted on the delid club (I haven't delidded yet)

Let me put this short and sweet, I'll update again.
If I didn't open my antec to change the paste, in around 2 months I would be running on metal on metal.

Current temps are already 10c cooler. On idle and on ibt.
Results to follow soon....

Antec are going to fear my wrath.

I can't belive this, i used the stock paste. I have tube arctic silver 5 and a tube of antec silver formula 6 and decided to just go with the stock paste. Are your sure? unless its a new problem not seen before.

I had just replaced the stock paste on mine last night. You're right about the stock paste going to ****. It was crusted up and even bare in spots. I used antec formula 7 paste when I put it back and it's running a LOT cooler now. Maxing out at 64c running prime for 25 minutes now. I still need to lower the voltage a tad

Expresso - I think you'll be interested from the video I just published - had you in mind when I was doing this.

SP120 quiet vs stock antec 920.

I always use TIM that i've purchased, never what comes with a cooler. Using MX-4 at the minute, but i'm a really big fan of Zalman STG1. It comes in a nail polish sized bottle and you basically 'paint it' on both surfaces in a really thin coating. none of this pea/cross line malarky. guaranteed full coverage thumb.gif

Definitely a not-good method of applying thermal paste. You'll be surprised that using the pea "malarky" would give you better temps because it produces less air bubbles than your method.

Here's my log of it now published in a separate thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1350571/antec-k-hler-h2o-920-stock-paste-removal-and-replacement-a-shocking-discovery

I wish it was only paste related but no - physical damage to my £255 i7 too.
Well done Antec...."slow claps"

Sorry, thought we were talking about motherboard vrm. Are you cooling the gpu with a 620/920 and you're worried about not getting airflow on the vrm?

Cooling with a 920 and plenty of airflow. My VRMs are still blasting into 114ºC while benchmarking (throttling, btw). There's no heatsinks or cooling on the VRMs so that's kind of expected
