02-17-03, 11:56 AM
Hi guys I thought of putting some RAM sinks on my card but I don't like the idea of Epoxyglued sinks :( But I heard that there is some kind of double side "sticky" thermaltape which can do the job? Is this true ??? Anybody had any experience with this and I would really like to hear your oppinions on this one !!!
Thanks in advance !!!
I dont know but i just bought a thermaltake ramsinks pack and would also like to know if this thermaltape is any good compared to as3 anhesive.

My friend's AIW Radeon 8500 came with the ram clocked down a bit, so we decided to overclock it and use ramsinks. We used single sided aluminum tape, put pieces of tape on each ram chip, then mixed superglue with some antec silver paste (pretty much the same as as3) and stuck em on there. The tape comes off pretty easily and works better than pads. Here are some pics:

That was original !!! :)
How about results in o/c ??? Did it gave any performance improvements ?
Thank you for your time !

we only got about 10 mhz higher, the key is to have cool air blowing over the sinks, then they dont get warm at all.
