    Hey guys... Finally I'm starting my Project :rock:

    I will talk later, But this is what I will have to do tomorrow....

    1- Buy Case And HD
    2- Mod motherboard heat sink and change paste under them.
    3- Lap The CPU and The heat sink

    For today I was cleaning my hardware, and organizing my HD. So tomorrow I think i will have time to buy The CASE and a 1TB Hard disk.

    Latter on ( during this week ) I will post my new 22 " and 4870 1GB and maybe the sound card.

    I just wanted to keep my word that I will start today :) here you go guys pics of my TRUE!!!

    those types of heatspreaders are let down by the crappy thermal bubble gum there stuck on with.

    The tiny sinks CK has used could be improved by using some thermal epoxy which would require balls as you'll never get the sinks off safely. But would offer better cooling.

    Some of them do use clip designs, and you could just get rid of the paste they come with and apply your own?

    All of the heatspreaders form ram I have had use that bad thermal sticker stuff. I just get it off and apply a little bit of AS5, and it works like a charm. Just make sure it stays on there tight.

    Long time, no see ComputerKing! :)
    Do you have any idea of where this mod is going? Or are you just figuring out along the way? :)

    I've used that plan before! Only real plans I ever do are work related and too much detail to be done for fun.

    Go with the flow. Remember if it doesn't look right we'll let you know - [​IMG]

    why the 3870X2, isn't a single 4870 cheaper and faster?
