I have a Asus GeForce 2 MX, and I want to place a heat sink on the ram. I have read about using super glue, is that safe, i mean can it destroy my ram?

This may work or it may not, but I can tell you that superglue is liquid cement...if you put the heatsinks on and something goes wrong, you will never, ever be able to get them off without damaging the chips...

Get some thermal glue...it is made for that sort of thing

I have used it and it works but the thermol epoxy is much better. Arctic Silver makes some good stuff you can get it at 2cooltek.com

Sure it is safe. I didn't actually put any super glue on my GeForce2 MX, but I used it for my Vanta and my TNT2 M64 and it worked fine. Just don't put too much on there and you'll be ok.

hey

here is what i did to put those heatsink on my mx card:

put thermal goup on the heatsink and then put the heatsink on the ram. Then go around and glue the 4 corners to the ram chips with superglue. This way they are still stuck there and u get the true benefits of the heatsink.

if you superglue them and it fry's ,you wont be able to RMA it ,,with epoxy you can scrape it off and they look like new ,works for me all the time ,,but I use melcor and not arctic silver so I dont know if that will come off again

I got the heat sinks on now, but actually I only gained 1 MHz:-( I don't know why but there is almost no difference. I used the super glue ( in the corners), and the thermal compound (in the middle). The heat sink get's something between cold and warm, not hot (I don't know any words for that, but I hope you get it).
Why can't I get more than 1 MHz out of this????
