Mounting Crystal Orb to Radeon 8500.
I know this question might sound silly, but I am hoping to get a different answear then the one I know. I got the old HS/F off, and cleaned up the GPU. I noticed that the C/Orb comes with a packet of T-Grease and a dinky little thermal "bandaide". Seeing as there was no logical way I could mount the orb with the clips,I assume the only way to get it to stay on my GPU is to use the thermal pad. but I could be wrong....

You'd be best off buying some decent thermal adhesive and sticking it on with that. Might want to lap the heatsink with fine wet 'n' dry paper beforehand to ensure the best possible contact surface.
The thermal pad is the only way to adhere it "out of the box", yeah. It's a shame that the early 8500 PCBs don't have mounting holes...

Ah - just seen this already mentioned in your other thread, sorry.
