Is it possible to get a cooler off of a chipset if it's been 'glued on' with a thermal compound adhesive?
Not easily - this is some HARDCORE stuff m8
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:
Just got a quote from acme technology.
For the smaller version £10.00 each and p&p of £10
Just thought some of you may be interested.
welcome to the forums!
So how do u buy these vice copper coolers off Acme then, they don't have any online facilities???
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.
.................I'm sure I used to have one of them - couldnt figure out how to plug it in though............
this new fangled technology scares me!
Wasn't the 'telephone' replaced with the 'modem'?
Tele-phone eh? Do'u recon they do video conferencing???
Actually i prefer mobile-phone, that way i dont have to find a plug
And you're saying that to a telephone engineer !!! KNA - you're so funny you should have your own show on TV - really!!! What anyone has failed to mention is that Acme charges £10+ for postage, even on this tiny little cooler!!!
Shove that in yer pipe!
now now children!
Hey cool, need a job?
Know anything about INDeX or Definity?
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!
