    Nah, last time i did it was 2months ago. Only applied Mx-4 instead of mx-3 this time.
    And the lapping was just a fun experience.

    Possibly did his thermal paste better as well - definitely would need less after lapping (as the paste is supposed to fill gaps, which are now lessened after lapping).

    Thought I'd get a few photos up of my setup at uni (on my ridiculously small) desk. Apologies for the mess and the poor picture quality, got a lot of work on atm and I wasn't in the mood for tidying up before I took the photos!

    Thought I'd join the bandwagon.

    Using this setup while living on Scotland, will probably upgrade to a system when I move to the states in the next few months.

    Done some updates.

    From Phenom II x4 965BE, 4x2GB Corsair XMS3 1600MHz, Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H and Cooler Master Silent Pro M 700W to (complete setup)

    Build:
    Mobo: Asus Sabertooth 990FX
    CPU: AMD FX-8320 @ 4.0GHz
    CPU-cooling: Stock atm, sadly I have to change H100i to H80i as it didnt fit the case =/ But will be H80i, rear-mounted (exhaust)
    RAM: 2x 8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866MHz CL9
    GPU: Sapphire HD7970 GHz-edition Vapor-X
    SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 120GB Max Iops
    HDD: 1TB 7200RPM, 2TB 5400RPM
    PSU: XFX ProSeries XXX 850W
    Chassi: Fractal Design Define R3 (will be upgraded dto R4 with window soon)

    In 1-2 month I will get white sleeves, and sleeve all my cables, is the plan


    The new parts


    Mobo and ram inside Define R3, testing to mount the H100i


    Really, really close fit with the RAM's


    But the problem was the heatsinks on motherboard.. sadly enough. So returning it.

    Looking really good! Really nice pictures as well.
    Unsure if it'd fit with the Define R4, but either way, the H80i is acceptable as well.

    You'd be suprised, the stock AMD FX cooler is the same quad heatpipe design from the old AM3 Phenoms, and it can do mild OC fairly well. Nothing mind blowing obviously but 0.2-0.3ghz easily. Nowhere near a D14, but almost even with a 212, i'll have to find and link the review/comparison I read awhile back on it. That and the FX chips put out very little heat anyways, OCed to 4ghz my 8150 barely put out 100f on a Hyper 101.

    Yep my cpu to 4.5 , 4.6 need little to much vcore . Here 1.29v and less than 70C° during the linpack stress test so i can put an higher clock but i think it's useless for what i use it ( gaming primarily ) .

    Tested some higher clocks on my gpu to see what i can do whit it but i don't need permanent oc for now .

    If you want to, you should enter the CPU/GPU OC leaderboards that are linked in my signature!

    Nice pictures? :O Its taken with a Samsung Galaxy Ace W, so kinda bad.. But glad you liked it
    No, I dont think there is much moor room to fit it in R4 sadly, I dont wanna have to modification the chassi so. Its have to be a H80i good its close enough in performence, not many *C higher

    Its not even close to a Hyper Evo 212 in cooling. But its not bad. Worst thing is the sound level.. @ 4.0GHz I can peak 55*C sometimes, but normaly is on 40-45*c when playing. But the sound is killing me!

    @Christoffer1989 did you have the high pitch noise issue with the H100i? Corsair is saying it's very rare to get that issue but I get everytime from RMA a unit with that noise -_-

    Btw nice choice on ram :P I bought 2x 8GB kits of them just for looks lol

    I just tried the H100i, to listen to the fans and pump to see if there was any noice issue. Fans sounded alot on high speed, but on Quiet profil and medium they was lower then my other fans And the pump was quite as hell.. So no issue with sounds :P

    I got the ram instead of Crucial BallistiX Elite cuase they was out of stocks, and I bough a kit with mobo, cpu and ram :P

    Not everyone notices high-pitched noise. For example a SSD also makes noise. Good chance more units have it, but not everyone notices it.
