will thermal adhesive work to hold on a GPU heatsink? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
The risk of making it work is not worth the reward IMO. I agree, try to resell it.

I wouldn't glue the heatsink on, that's alot of stress focused on one spot.



ebays policy requires buyer to ship it back first then seller refunds original price shipping not included

Adhesive is a little un-reliable. It could start to come off on one side and you can't even tell. it will be hanging upside down too. Plus you are "stuck" with it. You will never be able to change it out...or unlikely anyway. I've gotten CPU heat sinks off that some one used thermal adhesive on and it wasn't fun. I don't think it would be possible with a GPU

i doubt anybody wants it its pretty old wont work on anything newer than 8800 ultra ( as far as i know)

and yse you can take it off
it's simple to do

That voodoo won't get nearly as hot as a 8800 will...plus this heat sink is likely 5 times the waight of something that would have gone on an old 3DFX GPU. It might work, but if it doesn't it could lead to a mess or even a dead card.

true i guess but i just got a PM with someone who has the mounting hardware just waiting to see if he has the entire set of mounting hardware if he does then I'll keep this and demand a partial refund.

true but I had one with bigger sinks on it over volted and with thermal adhesive
not the sock adhesive
but it can be strong stuff
I even used is on cpu's sinks

you might want more then just the adhesive just to be safe
