    Next time you delid a TIM vs a Soldered CPU get a torque wrench, find out how many n/m or ft/lb TIM will release with vs solder.

    I am about to upgrade the HTPC in my house, which was served by a A8-3870K, yes old, but did 1080P just fine. Obviously I am looking to the 3rd gen Ryzen APU, but it would have been cool to see the Cinebench scores after it was cleaned.

    A question on controlling fan speed that you mentioned. It sounded like RussiaTech for a program or similar to lock the fan at low speed. Can you respond with download info on it?
    Thanks and I enjoy your presentations and am subscribed.

    Finally I feel vindicated for having a delidded + liquid metal CPU in my HTPC. Next time someone makes fun of me I can point them to der8auer to shut them up.

    You delid a soldered IHS , and don't bother lapping it.

    Yeah Poor Mushkin. They got bought by a company called 'Avant Technology' in 2013 that seems to mainly focuses on making memory products (SSDs included) for the industrial/OEM market... I think their acquisition of Mushkin was because they wanted to branch out into the commercial market and mushkin had all the contacts, distribution and logistics sorted out already but they dont seem to have done anything with the brand.

    You could say that maybe Avant Tech was just buying up the competition but Mushkins main focus was always the commercial market afaik. They wanted their products to go to PC and tech enthusiasts rather than have their hardware shoved in giant server units where they'll never see the light of day.

    So your CPU and your PSU fan are both facing each other and sucking air in opposite directions. That can’t be good for either’s performance.

    Why not use the included wraith stealth cooler to save some more money? Looks like there is more than enough clearance to fit.

    Maybe a stupid question but why not LiquidMetal between the the IHS and the cpu-cooler ??
    Best regards.

    I would resolder the caps nonetheless #OCD
    About the 24/7: turn it off half the time and it will take 10 years to get the same amount of dust inside!

    big fan and not trying to be a smartarse but you need to find anotherway to hold the cpu inplace while you use that stanley blade to remove the solder,you will slip one day

    That dust build-up for 5 years is nothing! Wow, that's comparable to about 1 month's (during the hot season) worth of dust in my country! Hahahahaha! Take note, I'm also talking about a case with dust filters all around! Lol!

      The PSU he used in the system is BeCool if I understood him correctly. And Seasonic most likely didn't buy him any parts for this build.

    Actually some voltage between 320 and 450V, not 230V. That is, if the capacitors are still fully charged anyway.

    The case looks like the Jonsbo C2 but there are a few different companies with similar models. If anyone wants to buy a C2, they are ok but the ventilation is pretty bad. I took the Jonsbo sticker off the front mine and it looks pretty Apple-ish. Peace!
