    If the thermal paste was limiting the amount of heat being transfered from chip to HS then you would actually have to take your hand off it sooner after changing the TIM. If you could touch it for longer, you'd have done something wrong.

    Well, the pipe going across is actually hotter now, and MB sensor is reporting 33 with +0.175V instead of the 37 at +0.125V. Heatsink is about the same.

    I don't know if it is a pre production board, it is rev. 1.3.

    Have the box with all the stuff with it

    Hmm, first I heard of any production products with Intel confidential on them, that is ES normally.

    And I have seen X48 chipset myself, normal bare silicon like the rest on the ones I saw

    Maybe I am remembering wrong and they did have a spreader, but they would not have said Confidential unless they were ES boards/chipsets.

    I don't know if it was confitential need to open it again. I'll probably do that sometime since it is so easy to do

    Well I have not seen an ES CPU, but a heatsink on it would be a way they would hide it so it sounds to me like it is ES chipset

    Here is a damaged ES CPU I was sent, so you can see it also says confidential.



    If your heatsink says Confidential on it or looks similar to that then it is for sure an ES board, irregardless of if the X48 has a heatsink cover on it normally or not.

    Did you buy the board at a large retailer, or small one, or even from a person instead of retailer?

    I bought it from a large place, official distributor for Gigabyte in the country north of me (Serbia), they also have some shops here. Dam i need to open it again to check

    I hope it's not a bad thing if it is an ES

    No it is not a bad thing necessarily, just meant that only product reviewers, testers, and companies are supposed to get ES Products. They are for testing only, owned by Intel always, and are pre-production products.

    You should never be able to purchase a ES Product from a store as Intel Owns it and it is not for sale.
