Also many times the true requires lapping. When you have it off look to see how flat it is. If it has very small grooves in it then you have an older one and you definitely want to lap.

A good lap job should drop you by 3 to 5C as well.

I'm not a fan of Arctic Cooling MX2. The Tuniq TX-2 is a much better product.

I recommend that you lap your True. Here's a video for you

I am lapping it atm, however,
Slay - when you mounted the thermalright - how did you orient the backplate?

It has the horizontal and the vertical orientation (I am using the vertical - that is at the back you see more of the intel chip vertically rather than horizontally), but the holes aren't completely entering the mobo - like they jut out but not completely.

did you orient it horizontally?

You should be able to mount it either way.

You do have the i7 mounting bracket with the cutout on it correct?

I tried it both ways, vertical and horizontal. With it vertical my True was touching the NB heatsink and it was affecting my load temps. Here's a picture.



So I rotated my True and I added a fan to the Northbridge Heatsink and to the Mosfet Heatsink



As for my backplate, I've always kept it in this position whether the heatsink is vertical or horizontal.

- yes hef, using the new 1366 bracket provided.

- slaymate, so the way you have it atm (in real life, such that is facing parallel to the NB cooler), how does your backplate socket/mount look?

The backplate looks just like the picture above, I just took the picture today. And the clamp portion of the retention mechanism can only go 1 way.

ok so I mounted it correctly.

also, I got TWO LGA1366 sockets... did you get that as well or did yours just come with one?
[I think they are two LGA 1366 sockets, cause they look exactly the same lol]

2 sockets? Do you mean the X-clamp. Here's another picture showing what I'm referring to as the X-clamp. It's also showing you the socket size it's meant to accommodate, your other X-clamp should be for the LGA 775 socket. And lastly you can see the 1/2 of a Business Card I've added as a shim (I lapped the cpu and heatsink).
