Codemasters are set to release Overlord II trio
 
 
The game will shortly be available for PC, Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 according to information released earlier today. Accompanying the launch are exclusive game play videos and additional wallpapers available over at www.overlordgame.com
 
 
Promising smarter,  funnier minions along with larger scale battles all at the power of the Overlord who commands them.
 
 
Heres what Codemasters say about the game:
 
 
 "Thursday, 25th June 2009 (2pm UK) – Don’t delay, be evil today and prepare to lead a horde of mischievous and destructive Minions through enchanted lands steeped in fairytale lore and loaded with sinister and satirical twists in Overlord® II™, Overlord® Dark Legend™ and Overlord® Minions™, available in UK stores tomorrow, Friday 26th June.†

Heralding the arrivals of the delightfully diabolical trio of Overlord titles are three exclusive new Overlord videos. The Overlord II “Developer Diary: Humour” video features Lennart Sas, Creative Director of Triumph Studios, discussing how humour permeates throughout the game and plays a vital part in the Overlord universe. “Humour is key to the Overlord experience. Without humour and parody, the game would probably get banned.” says Sas.

Overlord II is the sequel to the hit warped fantasy action adventure that had players being delightfully despotic. In Overlord II, a new Overlord and a more powerful army of Minions take on an entire empire in a truly epic adventure, inspired by the rise of the Roman Empire. As the Glorious Empire conquers kingdoms and destroys any sign of magic it finds, it’s time to go Minion Maximus and send in the horde.

The Minions return smarter, deadlier (and funnier) and are ready to fight in large scale battles that will see their wild pack mentality squaring up to the organized legions of the Glorious Empire. As ever, they’ll do anything and everything the Overlord commands of them, especially now that they can run ravage and wreck buildings and scenery. They’ve also learn to ride: In Overlord II Minions are able to mount up and ride wolves and other magical creatures around the landscape and take them into battle, making our band of merry fighters faster and fiercer than ever before.

Just bought an i7, using an akasa cooler with the cpu at stock settings. Sitting in bios (no OS installed yet) the cpu is creeping past 55C. I had to apply thermal paste for the first time ever, could I have not done it well enough? I used my fingers to apply it (later found out I'm not supposed to do this). It seemed reasonably even, and I did lose a bit applying it so it isn't horribly thick as far as I can tell. I have never liked intel coolers, I hate the push twist thing (one of the feet I can't twist the entire way without it popping out again). Anyway, I could use a little help on this matter.

Thanks,

Ghaz.

Well, for starters you need to sort it out so that all pins are pushed and securely in place. With thermal paste you want a good amount - it is quite hard to judge since too little can lead to high temps and so can too much.

I usually draw a cross on the chip and then seat the heatsink/water block allowing the pressure to spread the paste.

I would recommend you clean the chip and start again. Be really patient with the push pins too. ;)

I took the HS off and it looked like the pressure had forced all of the paste out. I smoothed it out an am about to try again. Trouble is is that I only got 1 sache of paste, so I would have to go out and get some from the shop. D:<

Found out I was too tired. Managed to leave a plastic protective layer on the bottom of the heat sink > < I feel really stupid now.

Thanks for your help.
