    Guys, I was reading through intel LGA1366 specs and found this

    Any thoughts on this?

    here is the full pdf

    ftp://download.intel.com/design/processor/datashts/320834.pdf

    also, anyone smart enough to identify what the CPU pads on the extreme left of the top-left quadrants are based on the LGA1366 map? thanks

    which are you specifically referring to? This document is rather long.

    this is Fukkk .. so average cleaning and change of thermal is one time at 4 - 6 months ... => 15 * 4 = 60 months /12 = 5 years ... By that time you would have changed this procesor 1 - 2 times ... Not a big problem ... but still a problem as intel is trying to force a change of procc once a year as I see it ... with all the soket changes and all

    the LGA1366 mapping, there is a LGA1366 contact pad drawing and there is a long list and I just want to know what the CPU pads on the upper left edge are for :)

    Reason being is that last week I had this problem with my RAM being detected by BIOS and Windows as 4Gb instead of 6. I fixed it by removing the CPU and when I checked the bottom the pins on the location Im talking about had some discoloration. Cleaning it up and reseating the CPU fixed the RAM detection issue for me so I just want to know what the affected CPU pads are for :)

    ^^ apparently it can be an issue on x58 CPU/boards :)

    thanks :) reason Im interested to know that are is because of this

    reason I was interested is because of this

    no burn marks on the pins though, just the discoloration above which I was able to clean with a a microfibre cloth

    Ive removed mine about 60 times no issue, i think its more the pressure from the IHS your using, nothing to do with replacing the cpu mate..

    If your thermal paste has to be reapplied enough such that this is an issue...you need to find a higher quality thermal paste.

    are the pins and contact pads made of copper? copper discolours over time when in contact with the air. if you can see some blue'ish coloured bands on the pins that would be a problem because it means there getting very hot.

    yes copper and contact with air no.. I've had a old 775 socket for years and i've reseated it several times due to installing different pots/ air coolers etc etc

    why the hell do you touch your system every 4-6months? if its running dont touch it. this is a simple rule that saved alot of systems from beeing destroyed :)

    once my cpu is seated and my cooler is mounted i dont touch it unless i realy need to make a change because the temps dont suite me or because i make an upgrade.

    You're talking to someone who had the money to buy a 980x. Pretty sure what you're saying is jibberish to said person.

    I replaced my TIM every so often but that's been put on hold for a little while. :D

    no its not jibberish - why should it be? and i dont know who you are talking about. it doesnt matter what cpu you have. if you dont plan on upgrading it, you dont just unmount everything and replace the thermal paste every 4-6months

    Reapply thermal paste every 4-6 months? Last week was the first time in 2 years I reapplied any thermal paste and that is only because I bought a new cooler.

    Seems a little silly to me. Unless you have temperature problems but if you have to reapply paste that often you probably aren't doing something correctly.

    People with bench setups will take apart there system every few weeks even months.. depending on which hardware there testing or reviewing..:)

    ppl who do this profesionaly will jump to new platforms everytime they come around. so its not even a big problem for those either.

    and even then its not exactly understandable how the socket would have a problem with reseating the cpu

    Didnt see blue-ish bands but I was able to remove it with eraser and microfibre cloth though. If it were the bluish bands, that would be harder to remove right?

    I have a bench setup and change waterblocks, motherboards new cpu's every now and then without changing to a new socket.. So the socket problem isnt a issue imo..
