Derekva, Those mobile msi pads sound very interesting, any chance you have some more info on them, a partnr perhaps?
I have a T2400 and a T7200 (and a dothan 770), and just today I was looking at this mad experiment at Madshrimps
http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=gethow ... howtoID=39
and my conclusion was: it would be real nice to have some kind of copper IHS to place on my mobile cpu's.
Which would be best on the i975xa-ydg, especially for cooling the NB?
- Zalman cnps7000 with nexus 92mm (438gr), and a hr-05 or noctua lookalike on the NB
- Zalman cnps7700 with nexus 120mm (600g), and a low profile NB heatsink, like the blue zalmans, but maybe in copper
- Thermalright xp-90 or xp-120, with hr-05 or low profile NB heatsink (Mike C warnes about the stress on the clips, how does it work with you? those pads that safe?)
- Ninja (sorry Mike) with 120mm nexus and hr-05 (sli if necessary), so that the fan is situated between the two heatsinks, and a duct can be placed from the ninja to the exhaust fan.
Anyway, I think the MSI mobile pads are exactly what I need, so if you can provide some more info on those? It would be nice not to have to worry about the stress on the cpu die.
