    zipties work wonders my friend, last sinks i put on i used as5 thermal adhesive. thats deff not removable, lol.


    edit: i do believe you can get sinks alluminaum maybe copper with thermalpads 2 way sticky tape type deal, thats not perm. easily removable with solvents, or just pulling them off.

    i believe i need a picture, to fit that into my imagination:laugh:
    i thought, normal, medium strong liquid glue, and mx2 mixed might do the job?

    if u want perm arctic silver adhesive is what u want, not glue. this has the thermal properties of tim and is an adhesive. ive used this on a few video card mods, with copper sinks on

    Might as well post this here as it relates to my PC ATM.

    Big difference. I decided to get rid of my RAID 0 setup since my array got screwed and I ended up having to reinstall Win7 and lose all my stuff. I'm probably going to trade my second 640 for a 1TB Green for storage.

    Basically, the pic is to represent that I got fookin prawned.

    Just got done installing 7 home premium on my Asus 900HA eeePC. It was incredibly simple to do from a USB drive. The APK drivers from Asus for XP worked fine, got the graphics drivers for the M945 from intel and Windows Update took care of the rest.

    i put some TIM on the chips and put a tiny drop (very thin can hardly see it) of super glue on the corners of the chips and that has yet to fail me. it is easily removable if your careful

    Same with mixing AS5 with AS Epoxy to get a 50/50 compound out of it, that's what I did with a Dell Inspiron 9100/ XPS Gen 1 which had a Radeon 9800 256. I used that stuff on Tweakmonster Ramsinks on the VRam. I used stacked Akasa Shinetsu pads on the VPU since the heatsink had a big gap, it worked so well that I got a overclock of 459/416 from stock of 350/300.
