Quick Core i7 860 Question

460 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  FSF-Foxhound
Hey guys,

I have a quick question, does it matter which way you mount a heatsink on the core i7 860? Because I know that you get better temps with the 920 by mounting it North/South because the heat pipes line up with the cores. I was wondering if this is the case for the 860 as well. Thanks!

I don't know for sure but what I have read you would want the fin's running horizontal so airflow will go through them.
