    whoa whoa whoa... whats this about getting something better than AS5? I thought it was supposed to be pretty good as well?

    Just for the record thats what im using with my setup which is pretty similar to yours so stick your tongue out and go "nerrrrr" to that reply lol



    And its a 930, not a 920 as reported

    I also thought it was supposed to be the best...... by the way k1llah3rtz, you know it takes a while for it to cure? 200hrs they say

    Hey, can i make a suggestion?

    Which way is your megashadow orientated? Ive got the same cooler.... i see alot of people have it setup so its exhausting air out the back fan, where as mine is orientated to exhaust out the top fan. Not sure which way you've tried it, but thought id mention it anyway.

    I applied the TIM like you did mate, followed the instructions of the AS site. Small thin line... but im more interested to know how you mounted your cooler?

    NO flames from me, just discussions!

    Yes, you can use alcohol to clean with

    Best I think is TX-2, or MX-2, then IC Diamond. The TX-2 and MX-2 are the best for cooling reasons, and cleaning, comes off in one wipe and requires zero set in time.

    You will be surprised when you first use it how easy it is to clean up.

    Any alcohol? Can you get alcohol wipes? Thanks for the tip LSD

    Will try TX2 next time the situation arises to compare

    still here.. just working as well ;)....

    so am i the only person to have actually bought some ArctiClean??.. oh well..

    yeah mine vents to the rear.. got a fan mounted on the case in line with my push-pull arrangement... can't mount it any other way due to the height of my DIMMs....

    how thin was your line??.. i've tried getting it thin.. but i always get about 4-5mm.... the tiny syringe hardly makes it easy though...
