Question old heatsinks


just thought i'd have a little fun here.

"What have you done with old heatsinks?"

PS: i stuck my old radeon heatsink on my MB when i noticed the pins were the same distance apart as my sata/Raid-controller HS

I collect as many as I possibly can and put them all in a box for future use. No, I'm not joking =P. I've got 486 - pentium heatsinks. Chipset - transistor heatsinks. I usually catch myself using them on video card RAM, or old S3 video chipsets used in faster computers (for some odd reason they seem to heat up a lot more in newer computers).
