    Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive, in desperate need of help!!!

    Ok, once again I f**k up. I put WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much A.S. Adhesive on my GeForce 2 GTS and now I can just barely run Unreal Tournament in 1024x768. That's the fastest it will let me go because my card gets too hot after that. It's because I put way too much A.S. Adhesive on. So now I gotta take the heatsink off. This is very dangerous. It could completely damage my card. It's mixture is 1/3 A.S. compound and 2/3 A.S. adhesive. That should weaken the bond quite a bit but I'm not sure how much. Can someone give me some tips for removing this?

    Try the freezer trick, bag up the card and put it in the freezer long enough to get it really cold and make the epoxy brittle.
