Case Modding

Got a new rig to show off or just want help with the latest Tec, if it’s for PC this is the place.

25*c drop is massive, but i have my doubts about it, but if you use a heat gun and heat the IHS up the glue and thermal paste like go easier, but i just used the skechy way of hammer and vice, where the chip might get abit of air time if you do it to hard or if it just lets go.

But my chip only saw like 10-13*c drop, and i think my Supremacy Evo block is bad as the CPU gets 65*c somethings and the chip temps raise way fast in spikes and my idle is only 30-32 ish *c.

Might just buy an beefy air cooler and sell the watercooling bits and as it has lost its appeal for me, and my thoughts constantly keeps dreading a leak, but hopefully it isn't going to happen.

In the German demo video, he achieved a 13 degree temp drop, by replacing the thermal paste and place the lid back. Same cooler and setup.

That is just massive and really makes me wonder why Intel uses such *crap* as thermal paste. It must be a penny decision to be cheap on the paste.

I love steampunk. But it is very hard to get right. This one rocks. :2thumbsup:
