Okay, the AS5 arrived yesterday. I probably wont get to lap the HS and such till tomorrow- as the lady and I will be spending some time today.
Anyhow, just out of curiosity- what do you guys think of this cooler:
Would that be a good buy? If you think so, I very well might get it. Furthermore, I'm strongly considering getting this as well:
This Opty (if I can get the heat down) and that Thermaltake cooler of mine would go in the tower and mobo that comes with that barebones- and the FX-60 would go in my current rig with that Ultra TEC cooler.
What do you guys think? Yay? Nay? I've even just considered returning this Opty if the temps don't go down for a refund- then taking that refund and getting an FX-60 from TigerDirect.
Anyhow, I'm not giving up on this Opty just yet. Probably tomorrow I'll lap the HS and then reinstall the heatsink with the AS5. I'm also gonna' do some "repositioning" of the fans for more optimal airflow to see if that will help. I'll keep ya'll posted.
Oh, and as soon as these temps come down to where they should be- I'm oc'ing like crazy. I'm wanting 3Ghz atleast per core.
Here's hoping I can pull it off.
