    unfortunately blitzy, because of my stupidity :p I killed the board after I wet sanded it.

    I've already passed the dead board to Clawhammer, hopefully he can fix the mosfet. I will try to measure the temp is claw is able to fix the board :) :angel:

    Adrian thats an impressive effort to sucessfully pull off such a stunt. However there is no before and after testing, there is nothing to say that all that work was for nothing. For a person to write a guide and not even do proper testing is very unprofesional. If we dont even know what this acheives then whats the point?

    Sam_Q: Do you know ZuePhok is the reviewer? And his board was damaged like the picture above just a few days after the mod was completed? ;)

    SamQ I'm so very sorry for not being able to include any before and after testing results :) I would do it now right away if I still had the baord in working condition :) unfortunately I killed it a few days after I wet sanded it..thus wasn't able to conduct any temp/fsb testing :) so sorry about that :)

    one thing that I hope you can understand is that the purpose of this article is to guide ppl out there how to wet sand their northbridge...not an article to show what kinda result can we expect after wet-sanding our northbridge :)

    hey no problem ZuePhOk, I was more of a sujestion than a condemnation! Perhaps next time because well you do need another motherboard afterall!

    out of inerest I wonder if that motherboard is repairable, perhaps it may well be possible to replace that power regulator?

    You will definitely see the difference in temperature. But whether it affects the overclocking is another matter...

    I think it was a good article but would have liked a little more information on what type of sanding block you used. I've seen other how to's that used a wooden block with a very small mirror attached to ensure flatness and would like to know how you set your block up.

    Hey, It looks like the stock nf7-s northbridge cooler is on the video card in the review? How good is it compared to the small gold heatsinks in performance? Also, I have sold a motherboard I modded with heatsinks stuck on the mosfets and the person didnt care~actually liked the heatsinks so you should always ask first and see if they want the heatsinks on the board or not.
