I have been messing with this new PC non stop, thinking of ways to better cool it, sort out wires, improve airflow, improve the coolness factor.. Ya know it's a new toy.. Well I tore everything out of the case and set the power supply down and neatly wrapped all the leads with electrical tape (I do it as good as the car manufacturers if not better) I would have rather used expanding nylon sheath but I couldn't get it over some of the connectors. But I did use nylon sheath on all of the fan pig tails. I put the system back together and I noticed it was running WAY hot.. Like running WinAmp Beta3's Visualization Studio set so that the visualization was my desktop background (woah is that COOL!) and my Intel Active Monitor went off! I was like okay what's going on here? So I checked and dayuum I was up to 130F at the CPU and I said something ain't right here! Well, when I was making all my wires all nice like, I put the rear case fan in backwards! LOL Whodathunk the rear exhaust fan just don't work as good as a blower instead of a sucker! I also noticed that I had my heat sink off and on too much and I practicly got the thermal compound all smeared around. So I washed the heatsink off and polished the base of the heatsink and then I masked off the area where the CPU makes contact and I applied a heavy coat of Permetex Copper Anti Seize Compound. It's a grease that is stable to 1800 degrees F and contains pure copper particles. When I removed the masking tape I ended up with a nice clean square where the CPU sits. One thing that woried me was that this may conduct electricity and my CPU has a hole in the top (I assume that is the thermal probe) but all is well, nothing smoked! Ohh and I ruined my pretty yellow round FDD Cable.. I cut off the second FDD connector thinking hell it should work.. WRONG.. Now it won't work at all.. Ohh well I am going to order a single round FDD connector anyway.. And I beleive I am going to pick up a tube of Arctic Silver II 3 grams for 6 bucks over at www.2cooltek.com I still would like to get a good heat sink but I am comming to the conclusion that the heat sink manu's are more interested in catering to that weird outkast bunch that run those fragile AMD thingies!
