    Miniature heatsinks - where to get?

    Does anyone know where I can get miniature heatsinks such as what could fit on RAM chips, chipsets, etc? Thanks

    There's two off the top of my head but you'd probably be better finding a larger heatsink with a flat base, with fine fins of the right kind of size, and cutting it into sections. It would probably be cheaper and better in the long run taking your location in to account, unless you can find some in Auz.

    I suggest not to buy memory hs since they are
    not useful.
    My mx mem was VERY hot @210 , i used a socket hs splitted in two parts to cool my 4 mem chips (thermal compound with superglue spots) and the result was nothing (no more mhz ).
    Buy the mem hs if you want your card to look nicer

    I don't think it will be a problem to find a few sites willing to ship to Auz, more the actual cost of the shipping was what I meant.

    I also agree with supersalsiccia that for me as well memory heatsinks on my original CLAP mad absolutlely no difference to the usable o/c.

    That was with early Infinnion ram so it may be different now, haven't bothered trying with the Asus GTS.

    No,

    The intention was for the Voodoo 5500 and Sound Blaster Live! chip (which get extremely hot).

    The Mushkin RAM is obviously pretty stable as it is.
