HI guys I have a Sparkle GF 4 Ti 4200 128 MB and than wont o/c higher than 25 % :(
So I got one old heatsink and thought to cut it up and use it with Arctic Silver III and put it on my Memory modules.
Question is is there a chance that they will give me a higher o/c ???
I used Riva Tuner. If I go 1 MHz higher than 25 % i get artifacts :( Core can go high I think but memory is holding me back !!! :(
Any hope for me ???

I have heard that putting RAM sinks on vid cards dont show the benifits that many would like to think they do or want then to.

Not that I know! It is a Abit-BD7 II- Raid.
Will AC III hold the heatsinks on place by itself ?

I think you need to get the different stuff that has epoxy in it. Or you can put some dabs of epoxy on the edges to hold the sinks on. Thats what I have heard.

I have read that putting Ramsinks on your video card usually only gives you an extra 5 or 10 Mhz on your OC, so the question is do you really care about 5 or 10 Mhz?

Yeah I think I do :) So how will glue work as a trasmitter between memory and heatsinks ???
Anyone tried it only with AS III ???

ASIII will NOT hold the sinks on by itself -- also, I would highly recommend NOT using ASIII on the memory... if the smallest spec of that stuff hits the "chrome" pins on the side... bye bye card. You would want to use Arctic Alumina if anything.. perhaps mixed with a LITTLE ASIII... not too much though.
