    Intel Ihs Tim = Crap ?

    Hello, have this Pentium D950, it have died away slowly.
    it still boots and run but the response to volt and fsb have faded away gradualy.

    So when i bought a new chip to replace it i poped the hs, as we all know the Intel Ihs`s are "soldered" on, the tim is lika a metal with low melting temp.

    To get the ihs off without cracking the core, i heat the ihs carefully with a torch..

    results are:

    Solder is real soft and can be removed with the finger nail..
    Now i just wonder, have anny of you extreme beeings tryed this and found bubles in the solder like you can see at the pictures?!

    I realy dont think those bubles formed when pulling the ihs, and would be KILLING the coolig of those core parts...I suspect this killed this chip..

    Any comments?

    Regards Npvk_x

    Looks like the stuff has been boiling when you heated it with a torch.

    Run some tests. See if it runs cooler (it should).

    could be but i dont think so,, heated gradualy and the deapth of the bubles show it was not totaly liquid..

    also the bubles might have formed one time i started the system who HS... system shut down from overheating.. only time i know the cpu to have been realy hot.

    otherwise the cpu have been under 60c load.. at my tt-bigtyphoon or my water cooling..

    Run some tests. See if it runs cooler (it should).
    i dont have anny good temps noted down before the ish pop, now it is refitted with new tim. as-Ceramique and it is still the same (fubar)
