Default EVGA X58 Classified "westmere" mod (messy)

After accidentally pluggin in the wrong iron and burning the top of the Chipset cooler plastic on the E762, I plugged in the correct iron n tried my hand at the simple westmere mod for this board. Hoping to pick up one of those X-Files chips soon .

MY eyes are not so good first thing in the morning (allergies) did you just remove the SMD in the first 2 pics and bridge the other with solder (3rd pic)?

Way to go Kal! How long did it take you to do, and more importantly, were any animals harmed during the production of this mod?

Good stuff. Have fun with the x-files chips. Hope you dominate.

White stuff is WHITE electric tape (paint on). I had to pull some back to do the mod. The white comes off the board evenly and doesn't leave those little black chunks behind on every little resistor. When I finished I just painted more on.

No small animals were injured but the chipset block plastic has melted plastic angel hair now

FAP!

Burning that plastic makes the board faster. = secret mod.

I heard that the WM mod helps out on performance for all i7 chips btw. Might help you get closer to the edge with your other chips too.

If there is any performance difference, I'll definitely notice and report back. Filling the dewars as we speak and Deanzo is inbound so maybe we can sweeze off a session on Sunday
