Hey HWI,

Will the Mushkin Radioactive's easily fit under a three fan setup? I'll be upgrading the last of the old PC's in the house by giving it the M/B, CPU, and HS/Fan combo in my sig below, and getting myself a P8Z68/2600K setup. I've ordered the SA with a third fan and wanted to be sure the RAM would fit under it.

Also, I see you use different fans. I have two AP-29's, and could get a third. Did they make that much of a difference in your setup?

Thanks,
~Altstadt

and the last one, how much pressure?

sorry if my english is bad and thank you for your time
I've always put a small amount(about the size of a grain of rice) in the center of the cpu and let the pressure of the heatsink spread it. I also twist the heatsink back and forth a little before I tighten it down. I've not had any issues doing it this way on multiple builds over past 12 years or so. I can understand your concern, but from my experience it works good.
It's a solidly built heatsink, there isn't anything fragile about it. So nothing to worry about there.
I tighten it down fully. I've reinstalled it a couple times, each time using the full pressure with no ill effects.

The Radioactive heatspreaders are the same size as the Frostbyte heatspreaders, so they will clear with no problems.
Here's my post with before and after temps with the AP-29s.

EDIT: Just as an fyi, the temps in that link are my 2600k @ 4.5GHz w/1.32 vcore and HT on.

Hi all,

just wondering whether someone could enlighten me on how to dis-assemble a TY-140 for painting. I removed the sticker and found the endcap but it seems to have been glued in at the factory. I noticed subnet in post #166 said he had dis-assembled a TY-140 but no clues as to how he got the cap out.

Anyone able to give me some info (pictures?)

Thanks!

Nope. A small dot in the middle will be fine. Smaller than a small pea. I used half a pea size dot the first time and TIM leaked out the sides! Second application I used a great deal less and temps were much better.

The SA is real sturdy. Go slow and take your time and you will be fine.

Try sending a PM to XtremlyDementeD asking if he could post info on how he painted his fans from this post. I know he used Krylon Fusion for Plastic spray paint but not sure how he took them apart for painting.

The fan clips feel kinda weak but will bend a great deal. I thought I was going to break mine several times but they held up just fine. As for TIM a small dot in the center will spread in a circular pattern. You don't need to cover the entire chip. Only the cores which are in the center.

No problem. Just remember to ask very nicely if he wouldn't mind posting his method here. It would be very helpful to all. I plan on painting all my TY-140s soon as well.

Thanks for the info on the ram and fans. I tried skimming this thread for the info, but there's just a helluva lot of pages and info
