    Wait, so you mix it up and create your own thermal adhesive?

    no. I tried that and failed. I take a drop of glue and put it where ever i can without touching the hottest part if possible and use TIM in the middle like normal.

    DON what mix did you use to make a thermal adhesive?

    Oh, OK, I do that if I want a semi-permanent solution, but I read a thread over at XS a while back where someone made their own thermal adhesive...but I don't remember how and I can't fine it :eek:

    Guys,

    I need a USB mouse, any type doesn't matter. The mouse on my i7 cruncher decided to just stop working out of the blues. I know I don't use this rig but it's a pain to check if it's locked up or you know, checking stuff out on it. Let me know what you guys have to offer :toast:

    I seem to remember someone needing a 5.25 bay floppy drive. I just found one in a old server I got, it's yours for the price of shipping.
