i want to replace the GPU ram cooling pads to these 4mm high heatsinks :http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Akasa-AK-VMC01-BK-VG...1QQcmdZViewItem
I've ordered the X-clamp fix from ebay, And I wonder if 4mm are not a bit high....
Heard about the 8/12 penny fix, So I'm not really sure what is the perfect height for the ram heatsinks underneath the motherboard after x-clamp modification....
You help will be appreciated.
The space below the mainboard is 3mm(1 penny is 1mm) and it is questionable if the heatsinks are a good idea for the bottom ram.
Just leave the thermal pads there if you have them already they will do a better job because the air is not really circulating below the mainboard and due to the height you will have to cut holes into the metal case.
Get 2 heatsinks for the RAM on top and 1 for the Southbridge...This post has been edited by Wilhelm_I: May 8 2008, 03:45 PM
