Well hey, my temps have always been pretty high (80 +/-), so i figured the chip was lying, or something to that effect. So i'm building my new M-ATX rig today (Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R Rocks, btw - 400FSB easy), and as i take a razorblade to the IHS to check it out of curiosity... bam, there's the problem. Light in the middle of the damn tunnel.
Any tips or tricks for flattening this little guy? I've got plans to take it on a date with some 400-600-800-1000-2000 (or 400, 1000, 2000 - depends what i've got around) tomorrow... so things to wake up to before the project are handy. Thanks guys
For those curious on the rest of the build, it's
e6400 @ 3200 - 1.55v
TR Ultra 120 Extreme with one Yate Clone or another, pulling air thru NB HS
2x 1GB Buffalo Firestix at 1000, 5-5-5-15 2.2v (needs tweaking!),
8800GTS (24/7 clocks TBA), Gigabyte GA-33M-DS2R (HR05 for NB, Stock for SB - stays cool anyway)
Modified to hell and back ultra microfly (gotta rip out the HDD support bar, hack 2x120 holes in that side, make HDD cages. Whee.
Enermax Liberty 500 with yet ANOTHER rendition of cabling
