so i spent some time rearranging my rig setup and got it up and running at 77.5GH (2 cards) before realising that i am pulling air through the tunnel, rather than pushing/blowing it. *facepalm*

Previously i was able to have semi-stable operation at 81GH (39.5-41GH per card) but the system kept dropping chips or a full card to zero. that fan setup was a lot more rickkity with 2-4 fans in use and creating slight vibration. I plan to watch the new setup overnight before either a) overclocking further or b) getting a second 230mm fan to increase airflow (and then overclock!)


24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!

It was nerd luv at first sight after I saw the review and it just happened to be on sale for only $35 (after MIR). Grin

Think thats overkill ? The 9900nt is cooling a 65w PII x3 720e. Tongue

Its unlocked AND overclocked 27%, the TDP will be much higher than 100 watts.

Did someone say HEATSINKS !? Grin
Lapped PII 960T + lapped Zalman 12x

How much did the temperature decrease after lapping the heatsink?

Counting the cpu's improvements, I'm guessing 5-8C thanks in large part to the very uneven nickel plated finish I was dealing with. Smiley

Here it is after a few quick 600 grit sessions.

Then a few more...

x6 4.3 ghz Wprime, 43C

If I showed you the quad core temps, you wouldn't believe me. Cheesy

@Jay_Pal Tyvm Grin

Not bad at all considering I went straight to the 2000 grit after I ran out of the 600s. lol

Not heard of 'lapping' before :S is this basically polishing up the joints between the CPU and heatsink? (do you use HSP between them as well?)

This account was hacked & possibly sold during the period of August 1st and October 24th 2017.
Anything done or said in this period wasnt me.

Although you'd achieve an even smoother surface using at least 800 and 1200 before the 2000 and polishing with a soft cloth + water after that.
We used also a paste I can't remember the name and an reactor and sealant (not necessary here, I guess) afterwards.

Someday I'll get a multi meter and know for sure. Smiley

Yup. The main goal here is to make the contact areas as flat as possible.

What is HSP ?

I avoided that potential problem by letting the fine dust, created by the 600 grit, do it for me. eg. I used little/no downward pressure after the nickel plating was completely gone.

I actually do that with both of my 20" monitors. The gamma on one is down a notch aswell. lol
