    aOn-C, that`s a great score for your system. By the way, what cooling mod are you running on your video card?;)

    WeaponX, who did you purchase your crystal orb,heatsinks,AS3, and AS3 adhesive from? ;) aOn-C, thats a good clock increase for just the shim removal. What were both of your scores before the vid card mods?

    My shim fell off when I was putting the Waterblock on but would a good change in temperature help reomve it, like making it cold to have the metal shrink more then the glue?

    BWX232, go to this article and see if it helps any! Probably wont, but it may be worth a look to see. Maybe they superglued your shim on! (Just Kidding);) www.overclockers.com/articles714/

    BWX232, it looks like they used a utility box cutter knive, you know the ones with a razor blade in em! I just saw a relatively new cooling kit from Vantec that may work pretty good with or without the shim intact. Its designed to use with the shim, but may work without it too! I have not read any reviews on this product installed and tested by any independent sources as of yet. You can view the cooler here: www.xpcgear.com/iceberqccba4c.html ;)

    Yeah, it must have been another one where I saw the guy say he used a plastic knife- Anyway- I can't even get a razor blade in there- even if I could, I wouldn't want to apply much pressure- Maybe I'll try it when it's still hot/warm from gaming sometime- only other thing I can think of that isn't to drastic.

    all i did was remove the HS.
    then i found one of the edges of the shim were there was a very SMALL lip between it and the gpu.
    razor blade to it, pushing and slowly wedging until seal was broken a little...
    took something less sharp and pried it off...


    thas it ;D

    all done and stable at 380-350 all day AYE day ;DDDD

    Thats a large increase (1800PTS.) I am like BWX232, I have not removed my shim as yet, but it sounds like you didnt have much trouble succeeding. ;) Have you considered a better aftermarket HSF out on the market for even more enhancement. ;)

    I think I'm going to do this: http://my.execpc.com/~chris431/

    After I buy this:
    [​IMG]
    here: http://store.yahoo.com/directron/dc1206bmr.html

    Seems like a very good solution- I would like that little copper vantec if I could see the back, and if they designed it to compensate for the shim, but I would bet money they didn't- course I'll never know until I open it up or someone does a review.
