    Sorry to be hitting the site with so many questions right off the bat:o , but then again I guess that happens when quality stuff is found - everyone wants a snort!?!:rolleyes:

    In my speed read time through the net, I have a tendency not to write do useful web sites thinking I can remember but I'm getting too far into old fartendom for that. Now the question:

    Somewhere I saw a source for anodized cpu shims with a cut out for placing a temp probe next to the proc, anyone have an idea where???:confused:

    The rubber pads that are on the chips now make it much harder to crack the chip. You are more likely to slip with a screwdriver when putting hsf on and damaging the mobo.

    I spent 8 dollars on a shim the on my first rig i ever built and right i away i noticed that i just wasted those 8 dollars on crap. Like Big jack said with the lil pads you'll do fine..and as long as you notice how the heatsink is gonna sit when clamed is enough...:cheers:
