    Whats the point! We don't need Chipset heatspreaders!!!

    All you need is an HSF on the bare core.

    Mankz, In the article there's quite a good explanation for why they decided an IHS was needed. Plus, you're a 15/16 y/o barely doing GCSEs and the people designing this probably have PhDs in electronics/thermal engineering. I'd happily go with their decision...

    Your terrible grammar doesn't make you seem intelligent either.

    So remove the IHS, stick a waterblock on and get ready for some monster FSB speeds?

    Ooooh... wonder if the IHS is concave on that too? :p :wallbash: like most C2D's.... :/

    a little off topic but there seems no new news coming out of Computex since even with the hype of Intel and Nvidia working together under new technology and marketing agreements Nvidia has not given or Intel has not asked for SLI support on any of their new Chipsets. All I have read from your reports from Computex are that Crossfire support is built in. This is kind of funny since AMD now owns ATI and a almost a full yr has gone by after Intel has voided ATI's working agreement with Intel and still the motherboard manufacturers have not forced Nvidia to open SLI support to Intel or have Intel forced into using SLI.

    What is going on here? from the latest reports Nvidia enthusiast discrete graphics cards are selling 2 to 1 vs ATI products, leaving Nvidia chipsets with SLI support the #1 choise. This will not change for Intel without SLI since yes you can make one heck of a single card system out of a Intel chipset and a Nvidia G8800 Ultra but what about the Intel C2D CPU with SLI G8800 GTS system that will first sell for less but out perform the Intel C2D Crossfire X2900 XT system. That is the part that I do not understand all new chipsets and motherboards and still Nvidia and Intel are feuding.

    Perhaps I have answered my own question what advantage is it for Nvidia to introduce SLI to Intel when they have the market for Dual Discrete Graphics cards all sewn up already.

    If only you could put a CPU cooler on there lol
    Imagine a stupid person trying to lap it? They pick up the motherboard and try to that way lol
    I think its a good idea, temps will be up a bit, but at least thermal paste will be easier to apply

    AMD needs Intel's market share, Intel doesn't have multi GPU. Nvidia won't unlock it's SLI since it also has a massive market share on both platforms. If NV release SLI on Intel chipsets it's own marketshare will drop since Intel can price/promote NV out the market.

    You can unofficially run anything on anything, if you can find drivers that fit. If the PCI-Express lanes are connected somehow all you have to do is "enable" the point to point connection.

    No one is feuding, they're just doing good business.
