it's a good idea usually to open up new blocks anyway as sometimes there can be bits left over from machining.

ah, ok then, gotta find the right thing to unscrew it with though.

I know i asked aspire this, but just checking, the best method for applying thermal paste (in my case, tx-2) to a quad core is the X method right?

K, well i figured I should prep, so in addition to reading guides and stuff for water cooling, I tried out something that I thought might be a problem.

HACKING THE PSU

Turned out it wasn't a problem, and i was so happy it wasn't I took some picz !

So like...


I used this fan!


This old psu!


And like this powah cable and paper clip!



Then I looked at the 20 pin head on

Then sideways

Then i stuck a paper clip into the black and green wire thingayz


And the fan worked yay




Btw... aspire thats the fan that I cut out so I could use the frame to later mount my rad

All you need is a set of allen wrenches from home depot.

Bought a set last week to take apart my furniture when I moved, ran me something like 5 bucks...
