    Thanks for taking the time to post this, the fan on mine was making a terrible racket so I took it apart to clean it and re-apply the thermal grease and after half picking off the pad about the GPU realised they were at different levels… I was able to get a small sheet of copper of similar dimensions to yours from my local goldsmith who kindly gave it to me free. I t was good to have some reassurance I was doing a feasable bodge job. Cheers!

    I installed Windows 8 on my Revo R3610. I did a clean install from Windows 8 Upgrade.
    Device Manager shows a missing driver for Coprocessor under Other devices.
    Do you have the same issue? Did you find the driver somewhere?

  4. Joe_Miner says:

    Hi Juan! No, I didn't have that issue — Win 8 Pro found everything during the install — I don't know why it didn't work for you. I'd suggest posting your issue in the Forums — someone there should have an idea.

    I hear of issues with sound drivers, i. Want ti as a media server, is it working? Should i stand on windows 7 or win 8 is doing right on yours?

    Mine gave the coprocessor. I didn't know about the different surface height levels from the gpu and cpu.. I upgraded my to SSD and artic silver some time ago now. However some attempts to play 1080 or a medium load taks the PC turns off. I suspected it was overheating or something although cpu displays good temps. I think I have a board issue or after learning the different heights I will try the cooper trick.
