First time i lapped it i still had load temps up to 61C in the i5 2500k @ 3.4Ghz

I dont know why but i felt like relapping it a second time and somehow i hit a miracle.

Either it clicked in right this time, or i sanded it down enough to be better thermally conductive



I'm getting temps like an AMD Phenom now. Amazing!

Question: I also lapped my GPU 1 & GPU 2's Heatsink (6970's 2GB), why is the GPU 1 always 10C hotter than the GPU 2?

I installed Intel HD Graphics and GPU 1 went down by 5C.

If you are running 2 GPUs in a crossfire setup, the top card will always be hotter than the bottom card (unless you are water cooling).

This is because the heat from the bottom card block some of the airflow from the top card, and the GPUs are so close, they heat each other up.

What do you mean when you say you installed Intel HD Graphics?

Since i use the i5 2500k, ive read that when you install intel hd 3000 hd graphics the pc will use the cpu's graphic cores to render, taking load off from the pci-e cards. So i guess it helps take 5C worth of load off?

I have another question, im using ic diamond and ive read you need to leave it out for 10 minutes for the solvent to evaporate. I never do that, is it a big deal?

The only problem I could think of would be the solvent evaporating later and leaving pockets, but I don't think that would happen.

I assume you have a Z68 Board then. It can do that.
