    ...Which gives me an idea, are those CPU's magnetc? (Hehe, no, I wont try it, too expensive to fail )

    Please do post a higher resolution pic of that CPU if you have it!

    How does a cpu without ihs fair under a waterblock?
    What do you guys think, will i be getting better cpu temp or worse?
    Any advice will be highly welcomed.
    NB:Hardware
    Q6600 and the waterblock is a D-Tek fusion.

    it would work great, but the fuzion is bowed. Since it's bowed, it's probably crack the core.

    I don't recommend this for watercooling guys!!!

    Lap the proc a little, and use a bowed block like the Fuzion V2, that will get you your best results possible.

    He he, its like watching paint dry! You think your almost there, but theres always twice as much left as you think there is.

    Anyone try sanding down to like the last .25mm or so and then sand it all the way and compare that against a bare IHS? If the results don't change a lot, it might be worth it for the majority of us to just stop there.
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Rule 3:
    When it comes to computer news, 70% of Internet rumors are outright fabricated, 20% are inaccurate enough to simply be discarded, and about 10% are based in reality. Grains of salt--become familiar with them.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    Random Tip o' the Whatever
    You just can't win. If your product offers feature A instead of B, people will moan how A is stupid and it didn't offer B. If your product offers B instead of A, they'll likewise complain and rant about how anyone's retarded cousin could figure out A is what the market wants.

    Update on my quest:
    I have to stop sanding cos the ihs of my cpu is lower than the cpu retention on the motherboard and i can´t feel my fingers atm. I will continue later in the day with the sanding nightmare.
    I have to remove the retention for my D-tek base to make contact with the ihs.
    I believe ihs removal will work for anybody that is using stepped cpu waterblock.

    when the ihs was finally off, how long did you sand the bare dies to get rid of the solder?

    If your question was meant for me, then i couldn´t go on as i ran out of balls. In a nutshell after about 9 hrs of sanding i stopped and there was no drop in my temp and my cpu ihs is almost the same level with the part that the mainboard retention bracket rests on.

    I think I'm a little too scared to try it.

    I have a TRUE, and I don't want to crush the bare dies (I've seen pictures, it's not pretty).

    I also really don't think it will gain me a whole lot, my Q6600 is already lapped.

    This takes like 8 hours remember?
    As Los Alamos director J. Robert Oppenheimer watched the demonstration, he later said that a line from the Hindu scripture the Bhagavad Gita came to mind:
    "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
    Test director Kenneth Bainbridge in turn said to Oppenheimer, "Now we are all sons of b**ches." wiki

    Yes and No. With a properly designed waterblock a direct die with a flat block will outperform a bowed block on a almost fully lapped die/ihs. Unfortunitly with the whole bowed craze we don't even really get a choice in the matter, and don't have access to the better performing blocks of today in an unbowed form. (blocks come pre bowed nowadays :-( )

    Oh well thats why I'm Old Skool with my Cather G5.... One day perhaps flat blocks will become all the rage again.... Well assuming Intel changes the way cpu is mounted, OR AMD becomes the uber king again and keeps there current mount method, so no time soon .

    Core 2 Duo(Conroe) was based on the Intel Core Duo(Yonah) which was based on the Pentium M(Banias) which was based on the Pentium III(Coppermine).

    Core 2 Duo is a Pentium III on meth.

    Isnt it dangerous, sanding the core from the soldering ? Cant it be scrached ? I could try this on my E2140, but im a bit scared, since ive cracked and damaged a few cores before :P

    Ive lapped Fusion V1 and V2... They can be safely lapped flat with no bow..Just sand slow...

    Ive been doing sanding X2/X4 cores for a while. Ive even EXIT port modded the holes on Fusion too for better flow...

    Just drill the four corner exit holes to 3/8" for higher flow.Works with V2 just harder to drill the corners or you can use a roudtale file.







    As for lapping,, make shure the Block is fully assembled then lap flat or it will bow when you put it back to gether..

    You can do alot of small improvements with a fusion and still be able to use the Nozzel for INTEL chips.. If you use no nozzel you can open up center hole on the bottom for wider coverage of Center CORE CPU's..

    I recomend the Split Nozzel for CORE2 Quads while using larger exet holes.

    You dont need Extreme preshure to mount the block...Install as normal with factory hardware. When lapped ,, you may use a little less paste .A Nice super thin layer on each core is all that is needed with AS5 or MX-2.. Just remeber the AS5 takes longer to set when using water.

    Water block base must not sand too much, its thickness much be strong enough to prevent it from warping, once warp, you can throw away your block.
    Too much pressure also will cause the block to warp or crack the core, just sit nicely on the core will do.

    You've now given us all a good picture of what lies below the spreader so surely we could use a dremel with a steady hand to cut through the spreader? Much quicker and if you don't slip it should be safe.

    Don't quote me on this though.

    Guys, for people scared of killing their chips due to sanding, use nervdull. It's a great product cause it gets rid of the indium solder easily. FCG told me.
