anybody know where to get the official Hardware Scientist mittens.
Ease of installation [while wearing mittens] . Applying even mounting pressure [while wearing mittens]. Applying even TIM layer [while wearing mittens of course]. ambient temps ... yeah I got mittens so don't worry about room temps.
guess I'm the only one that doesn't have OCN HSF mittens
NEw owner here too
I was thinking about how to place the cooler: if vertical or horizontal... because i have a 2700X and the die is placed "vertical" when looking at the mobo, so if i install the cooler in the vertical position the hotspot on the IHS is touching only the 2 inner heatpipes. I know it's not direct die with direct touch HPs and the IHS and the colplate dissipate and spread the heat to more surface.... but anyway did anyone tried if you set it horizontally so the HPs are placed in a "crossed" way with the die and more get in touch.
