i think when he said liquid thing he meant the grease

by liquid thing, he might be talking about thermal paste but atm your guess is as good as mine.

We need more info like what motherboard? and watercooled or not?

please tell me?

okey should i put afterwards some thermal paste or should I try first and run cpu wthout any new paste since there is little left from the last one?

thankyou very much guys .you are great!

so I have finished cleaning... i would show a pic for the extra ensurance but..

so before i put the paste i wanna really know how to put so i dont do the same misstake again, (too much paste)

should I do a drop and let the cooler itself press down on it or should I brush on the whole surface which i did last and ended in 65 deg. temp.

yes the temperature was from bios where it says

pc health-
system tem

cpu temp

I used a very little and cheap one for 3 dollars from a local

however I started now the computer without any paste and the temp is lower then before but it incresing from 35 till(after 5minutes) 47 and still going higher!!!!!!!

and using the stock heatsink

and what you have your temp at 36 !!! what?!!

September 30, 2006 6:06:18 PM

robsx2 ooh your the man dude it waas you !!! who saved actually but all of you are great mates

i have put the paste and I really really dont who to follow on this confused .. so I did after this swedish instrucional for mounting amd64. I didnt spread the thermal paste.. so it looks like a circl spot on the cpu .. is it allright?
September 30, 2006 7:10:45 PM


this is little offtopic but..
I am installing the xp and was asked first formating the hdrive, nft(default) or nfts (fast) i chosed the deault but it goes veryu very slowly

about 1 minut: 1 procent.. is this normal cuz the biggest hdd before in my life was 6 gigabyte. hehe

you mentioned something about the psu rail..

I didnt get actually about the double +12 rail... and single +12 what is it.. I mean how do I know even if I have it on my Psu?

September 30, 2006 7:40:26 PM

on my label

there is two boxes with 3.3 and 5 and 12

ausgenage and output both are identical .. does this mean double rails?
