What is this reviewer talking about with reguard to the 3570k ?

As all the other reviews say, this baby runs hot. If you don't have a lot of patience, or the knowledge to de-lid and solder over the cheap paste used on the heat spreader....



It`s a comment from a review on Newegg.

The heat spreader is the metal cover that is thermally bonded to the CPU that is underneath. I think he is talking about replacing the original thermal past with something better. He says "solder over" but I think he got that wrong. The heat spreader might be soldered around its perimeter but I'm pretty sure thermal past is used to get a good thermal contact to the CPU die that's underneath it. It may actually be a thermal glue or epoxy that bonds the two together. I've never tried to remove a heat spreader myself.

Ya, it sounds dangerous, to the cpu. I watched them make the cpu`s on How it`s made the other nite, but they went way to fast. LOL I`m just really curious about was he`s actually doing.

So he`s pulling off the heat spreader, adding better grease and soldering the top back on, gotta be 1 dam good welder.

Maybe I`ll disect a celeron

If I was ever going to try and remove the heat spreader I would want an already dead processor for my first go around.

How to ruin your cpu and cut off your finger in 1 easy step.

Amazing that Intel would let that happen.

I gotta admit, the kids got talent, seems easy enough to do, but I`d glue it back on somehow.

Was easy enough, but I used a utility knife.

The heat sink and fan should hold it down OK. Gluing it back on wouldn't hurt if you can figure out what to use.

I was just looking at random cpu's in cpubenchmarks.net and found something really interesting.The FX-6300 is 9 ranks and 301 points MORE than the 3570k. I thought that the FX-8350 was the AMD equivalent. Is it just me or is this actually true?...
