Found here. I guess mobile A64 and Semprons will work just fine too, but not Athlon XP/K7 since they're bigger.

Quote:
MSI has released a little heatspreader, making it possible to use Turions CPUs, which are based on Socket 754 but do not have the heatspreader. Its such a simple but beautiful device. By using this metal pad, you can use a standard CPU cooler. The heatspreader should be available now for around 10�.

Seems the cap from my Sempron has value after all :D Having popped it off the chip (and gained 2 or 3 degrees) seems I should put it up on Ebay!

What does "1/4H" mean? :?

A quick Googling says that it probably means "quarter hard", which relates to how it was tempered. 1/4h seems to be a softer temper, as the text suggests.

Ok, first I thought it was a hardness measure like Rockwell or similar, but the "H" didn't tell me anything.

Overclockers would take the hassle to remove the heatspeaders to lower 2-5C :D
But I suppose someone must get this one to allow using all copper Ninja SCNJ-1000Cu :lol: on his/her Turion.

It seemed that most the article I found related to Age-Hardenable copper alloys(wire/sheet form) as Berrylium Copper(Cu-Be) and Brass(Cu-Zn).
While pure copper(C1100) used for heatspreader is not an age-hardenable one... :?

from the text the term 1/4 H while not pointed to exact number of hardness measurement like Rockwell,Brinnel,Vickers,Shore,etc , it's quarter tempered,so it's Hardness would reach a quarter of its full age hardened condition, ASTM temper designation for 1/4 H is TD01, as TB00 for (full?) annealed/soft, TD02 for 1/2H,TD03 for 3/4 H, H, etc (commercial link :? )

Why should they included that "soft" number/information on the box? maybe to push users to study metallurgy throughly :roll:

Yeah, that's the big question. I wonder how many consumers there are that acually know what it is. I'm a mechanical enigneer and I didn't know what it was, but then again I can't be aware of all the ways of measuring hardness that exists around the world. Anyway, thanks for the info! :D

I use a sanded-down copper penny as a shim for my Mobile chip. The price is right. You just have to find a pre-1972 all copper penny ( in the US of course).

This sounds great, I think a Turion plus a Ninja would make a nice couple.

But where can it actually be bought? I saw nothing on the MSI site, and a google search didn't come up with much aside from this thread...

The penny idea sounds also interesting if it's safe...

hm, bit concerned it says only 'up to 40W'.. whilst that may be more than any mobile CPU actually produces (at stock), it'd be nice to think it was atleast more efficient than the AMD ihs.. which can allegedly take 89w+

Seems like it's working well with Intel PM/CM/CS/CD CPU's too.
