    I have a X2 3800 with the IHS removed - I had it working for about a day and now it wont POST so I am auctioning it off - unless anyone wants to remount the IHS and test it for me - I would be prepared to pay.

    I am using it with the Asetek Antartica waterblock and tried adjusting the pressure for hours before I gave up.

    unlucky mate - tbh i really thinking auctioning it off would be harsh unless you listed as faulty.

    prehaps youll be less hasty to get it naked next time ;)

    Thanks Tom I will e-mail you.

    I bought the processor at auction the IHS had already been removed and I had the option of leaving it off or having it remounted.
