hey guys,
Im new to the site. i just cleaned up the bottom of a $7.00 cooler master heatsink i got today. It came with a terrible finish on the bottom. i took care of that tho.


before:


after:


that was after some wet sanding w/ 400 grit, 1000 grit, 0000 steel wool, then polished with Brasso. took about 15 minutes, im happy with the results.
I got this sink because it uses an 80mm fan so it will be more quiet than the stock AMD cooler.

now i just need to make use of these badboys:




6" inch beasts. 48volt. @ 250 CFM X 6. when in the window they change the air in my room in less than a minute

Uh.... next time don't polish it. It could raise your temps a bit. Looks nice though

Those coolermaster heatsinks may be cheap but they perform really well esp with a better fan on it. Used one on my present system and still kept it under 50c (just). Well worth the money. Nice finish on it....might have to try that with mine

i put it on last night. works really nice. cleaned it up good and used AS5. i used the Thermaltake fan that came with my old silentboost heatsink. just gotta give the AS5 some time to set
