    Heatsink

    I want to add some heat sink on my ram, the problem that I have is that I want to be able to remove them without too much problem. I was thinking to use small ammount of epoxy in to fix them. Any better idea ?

    All the heat spreaders for RAM that I've seen come with clips so you don't have to use epoxy.

    Put i tiny dot of Super Glue in two corners (I use a sharp pencil tip dipped into a small puddle of the glue). I also use a thermal grease (Arctic Silver II works good for me) to help transfew the heat better to the heatsinks. If you want I giot a few pictures of when I added homemade RAMD sinks to my GeForce4 Ti4200 here:

    I used an old heatsinks from a Pentiom Pro (I think thats where it came from) that I hacked into smaller heatsinks. That one heatsink cost me $1 used and was enough to do my Voodoo3 2000, GeForce2 GTS,. and GeForce4 Ti4200. The AS and Super Glue I already had. What a cheap mod. It looks pretty good too.

    So are mine I put superglue on the 4 corners of each chip and spread some AS1 on the middle of the chip (and wherever there wasn't superglue). Worked great for me. I've also used epoxy, and it works just as well.
