  • LGA775 Heatsink solution, Dynatron P199

    Has anyone tried it? I'm sure I'm not the first to notice how the stock heatsink that comes with the Intel LGA775 CPUS flex the hell out of the motherboard! I don't think it's a good idea to use it as a long term solution so I bought one of these little guys.

    I got it today, they are really heavy, I think the base is solid copper, it's pretty beefy...I hope it isn't too heavy. I plan to mount my case right side up, so all the pressure will be down on the mobo instead of pulling on it.

    Any one else have experience with this line?

    Hey Mate, I use that in my carputer setup on my 2.93 E7500 chip - works fine, no worries.

    Don't worry about the flexing of your PCB mounting the stock intel cooler - there's a lot of misconception floating around on that - PCB's are very strong, and can handle that without an issue.

    I've been overclocking and competing internationally for many years, and have mounted/dismounted literally 100's of various heatsinks/phase-change systems on motherboards, and yet have to kill one.

    Test the 2 heatsinks you have, and retain the one that gives you the lowest average loaded temps.

    Have a good one.
