    Is it possible to get a cooler off of a chipset if it's been 'glued on' with a thermal compound adhesive?

    to get the heatsink off my voodoo 4, which was well worth the effort. I first put the card in a sealed anti static bag and placed it in my freezer overnight. Next morning I opened the freezer, took the card out and yanked it off.... the adhesive was still quite strong but a little elbow grease and off it came .... then you just clean off the chipset and put the new heatsink on :)

    here is a pic of my modded voodoo:

    There should be a plastic device around your house, probably with a cord attached to the wall.. I've heard they're called "telephones".

    With them you can communicate with people using a protocol called 'voice' although it's all a bit old fasioned for me.

    Sorry, I couldn't help being sarcastic, it was such a great opportunity. :D :D

    Not as bad as the overall cost of about £20-25 to buy a digital audio cable (for the CD-ROM to soundcard) from America, coz i can't find one here.

    In case you haven't guessed, i didn't buy it!
