    updated rig
    the patient;

    the final abomination;


    to those wondering, yes my fans are placed by zip-ties due to mobo having a too big heatsink so my fans are +- 0,5 cm above the holes for the screws.
    however the result is worth it mid 70's as max load temps @ 5,0 Ghz/1,4Vcore, 1,352 after Vdroop

    Nice, which method did you use? Exactoknife or tapping it on the bench?

    tapping on the bench. (actually took way more force then i expected)
    knife option had no result at all. (even medical scalpel couldn't get inbetween )
    still waiting for some CLU to arrive might be able to knock off another few degrees. (using noctua NT-H1 for now)

    aye that was the plan for the TIM's , although the noctua one is like the second best TIM why settle for less (i know there's also the one use metal alloy but that seems kinda iffy tbh)
    as for looks of the rig , for a first rig im very pleased about it and have learned allot allong the way. (looking at you non modulair PSU!/ HAF case )

    How did that improve across the cores Shroudster? My temps are like this : core 1 = 71 c max core 2 = 90 c max, would it help on even them out? I guess theres not much thermal paste across all cores?

    there is actually quite allot of crappy intel paste once delidded.
    first attempt my temps were improving but still big core difference, turned out i missed a small spot which caused my 2nd core to run way hotter.
    so far my understanding of it is that you need just the right amount of paste. (however too much isn't that bad either, saw a ridiculious example of a full tube of noctua paste only gave a +5 degrees result vs good application)
    if core temps are still not more equal then it is time for lapping. (only did it a little due to not having fine enough sanding paper)

    really nice and tidy build, however, are all the fans exhausts ?, if so, id have more fans being intakes then outtakes, less dust build up, even using filters, massive positive pressure is a must, keeps the insides cleaner for longer

    Just got everything set up and I couldn't be more happy with it! I did the speaker wiring/drywall patching/painting my self but I still need to pick up a bunch of smaller HDMI cables to get everything a little more clean.

    I just looked at them a bit closer and this seems to be the truth... I would make sure you have them oriented the proper direction

    after a full evening of sanding;


    however so far temps are wierd/worse across the cores.
    lets hope the curing will have some good effect on maximizing spread.

    Did you just sand it, or actually lap it (as in, used a piece of float glass, or a definitively flat surface like a specifically machined block of metal)?

    Simply sanding it will result in a shiny copper top, but may leave it an uneven surface. Lapping gives it a proper flat surface, which is much more important.

    You may wish to lap (properly lap) your H100i block too. They're shiny, but not always flat.
