Cliffhucker Posted July 4, 2007 Posted July 4, 2007 I had my IHS off of my 3800X2 before and it worked fine except one of the heatpipes hit a capacitor more so when I lowered the Ninja on the CPU. (modded retention bracket etc ) I now have a new Opteron and am running it with the IHS on w/ a stock / UN-modified heatsink retention bracket. I did lap the IHS and it is better but I need a few more degrees cooler operation. I want to remove the IHS on this CPU (I need to try to cool it just a bit) as well but do not want to "cramp" that capacitor as I did before. I feel as though I was pushing it with that capacitor tweaked as it was. (see pic) So, I am looking for ways to modify the copper pipe on the Ninja. I was thinking I could either try to Bend it or grind it back to let off the pressure on the capacitor. Any ideas? here is a picture of when I had the Ninja on my Naked 64X2, so this is what I will be dealing with (as far as clearances) with my naked Opteron. thanks, CH Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
