Thread: Pressure of V7+




  1. #1

    Default

    Just doing a little case modding this past week on my p4 1.8A, and I noticed something I havn't noticed but on a few AMD machines (since the tension on the HSF is so great)... Anyway, the board has warped... The board the 1.8A is on was the board my 2.53 was on before I upgraded to the px845pev-800 (px845pev pro that is, on the 1.8A)... Anyway, I just noticed this now, but i'm not sure if it was there before I changed processors or not. Right in the middle (the socket area) on the underside of the board has started to warp. Now, I know I have to use a screw driver to disassemble the volcano 7+ before I can remove it from the socket (take off the metal clamps on the sides of it, loosen that screw then take them off, only way she'll come off)... Just curious if this is normal? I havn't had the v7+ on the 2.8 or the px845pev-800 that the 2.53 is on now to see if it is the cause... Any ideas? I really don't like the warp, it's VERY noticable.

    Anyway any help would be appreciated.

    I"ve used the volcano 6cu, 6cu+, and the 9...but never the 7+

    I have never had any of my mobos 'warp' for any reason.

    I can't think of any reason a hsf would case such a thing
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    This is common on socket 423/478 mobo's and even the standard Intel HSF's will do this over time. ;)

    Looks shockin' though. :eek:

    Ya okay... I knew this'd happen with some coolers (reason I went with the v7+ instead of the pal8942).

    Anyway, thanks.
