like its been said when i buy all new stuff next year and want to go sellin the old stuff will make it impossible to get what its worth, plus i have the o/c i want at good temps. 28-32 idle and 44-46 load.

mind you if i did break it it would make a good excuse to blow loads of money on a core 2 duo board and memory to replace it !!!!!

hmmm.....

I'd love to take mine off, but i'm really scared as i've already killed a 7800GTX which is currently in the RMA process.

Hmmm, I took it off one of my 148s, off the FX55 I just got and... off my 3700 Clawhammer 754. My opty 165 still has it on and the other opty 148 has it on still. I'm a well rounded geek... :rolleyes:

How much difference did it make to your 3700 Claw ???

Not as much as I had hoped but I didn't play with it too much. 3 to 5C drop in load, but 1 to 3 in idle. It made a huge difference with the FX55 almost 10C, both idle and load... buttrock.gif The 148 was about average of the two.

 

The 3700 is also on a Big Typhoon, the other two are under water... I'll do a few benchies on the 3700 tonight and get a more definitive average on it's temps... but I had hoped for more of a temp drop.

 

I took the FX and added volts to it and the temp is still lower than with the IHS on... :D Tryin for 3G ATM... mpr.gif

I'm considering stripping the 55 in my main machine... They're also $279 bucks at the Egg right now - it'd be a cheap chip to have some fun with :)

 

buy an opteron 165 instead at only $250 plus it's dual-core ;)

Since pulling the IHS off my 4800 X2:

 

o Lowered the voltage at which it was stable by 2 or 3 steps.

o Lowered load temps 5 degrees. Now it's 30 idle, 39 load instead of in the low 40's.

o Got an extra 50 Mhz

You think $279 is cheap? :D

 

Yeah, I guess I'm comparing it to what it was a few months ago :) It's actually $249 as I right this - bye bye to the high-end single cores! The're blowing those suckers out. The FX57 is getting down to the $300 range, too.
