Thx !!

Yes , however , it'll be clamped to the case , which is an awesome heatsink.



Edit : I totally forgot , these temps are with No thermal coumpound anywhere but the cpu to plate assy....and the plates have not been lapped.I expect a 5 degree improvement once the basic machining is done.

that is epic dude. With no thermal compound no less.

you should keep the origional HSF you designed your copper one off of. WIth the side fins pulled away it was like a mohawk. You can call it the Mr. T HSF

haw!!!

cheers bud

ROFL to grinder it kinda does look like a mohawk... and with a 5 degree difference that does sound pretty cool....hehe you should submit your results using something like MX-2 and the IC7 to the results thread....it would be interesting:) lol

Hehe.

When I do thermal work like this , I use commercial silicone based thermal compound.I only use Arctic silver on my new cpu's when I dont wanna lap stuff , and need the gap filler.

------------

I've fabricated the "Enhanced thermal standoffs" .

They start out as a 1/2" long , double flared piece of 1/4" copper tube. :



-----

They then get hammered reasonably flat , then sanded :



----

These spacers take the place of the motherboard's standoffs.....they actually get installed with thermal compound .....

Of course I don't have the right bolts (ffs) , but I am working on getting the mobo at least temporarily mounted.......

-----

I've got the northbridge heatsink redesigned....I'll be fabbing it tomorrow....I'm pretty sure I've got the southbridge and video taken care of as well.

Nice job BrainEater, but I have a question since you know a lot more about this than I do. Are the thermal conduction strips going to be insulated starting at the board up to where it meets the case, if not would heat not just escape along the conductive path and heat up the inside of the case?
