I own an RGH Jasper and since I have taken out the DVD drive, I'm planning to change the heatsinks. I will put a 1st gen CPU heatsink on the CPU and a 2nd gen CPU heatsink on the GPU. However, I want to leave the original X-clamps. The question is - how should it be done? Do I have to take the clamps off, replace the heatsinks, put the clamps back? Or can the sinks be removed without removing the clamps and leaving the "bolts" where they are?
JTAGgers, RGHers, how have you done it?
Thank you in advance!
Well, I checked some pictures and it seems that the clamps must be taken off in order to release the heatsinks. I thought that maybe one could use a hex/allen ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_key ) to release the heatsinks without taking off the x-clamps..
So - how do you do it without damaging the x-clamps and how do you put them back on?
