sormicoft said:well guys mounting an opty 146 in my rig currently has the ihs loose on the cpu. Will i see any benefit from removing the IHS in terms of temps/clocking ability?
SpudMaster said:when i had a 146, with ihs it would do 2.9ghz, but when i removed it i could only get it to 2.8ghz. Had no idea why, temps were the same, if not a degree lower without the ihs
Day03 said:I've read on a different forum that AMD started soldering the IHS to the chip so if you try to remove it then you will most probably damage the chip. I've seen a picture of this happen to some dude.
