Thanks Doc, love hearing from ya. Since removing the ram sinks on the gf2 pro and seeing what a poor covering I had due to fear of touching a leg, I now tape and then apply the as and this gives me MUCH better coverage and a less risk. I wondered about the heat sink as I did push the pins through but the heatsink was not going to move so I gave up on it until I got more info. A little heat from a hair drier, a credit card and off it comes. Thank you. Hey, there is a new guy in the forums who asked about the ak31 and the ak35 then bought the ak31 refurb from newegg. The guys are now telling him he should have gotten the ak35. Might drop him a note, I did.
