Heat Spreader Attached By Sticky Foam?? [Mushkin] - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Their pads aren't usually very sticky on the frsotbyte, I review their memory so I always take them apart so I'm well experienced with what's usually under there heat spreaders.

The stiletto model is the only really sticky one they use that I've seen, those you can pull off IC's when you remove the heat spreader if you don't warm it up first. Frostbyte and Ridgeback models it's not sticky really, and can be popped right off after you remove the clips or screws (Ridgeback)

They should for sure have metal clips on the frostbyte models, there should be two one under the model sticker and one on the other side. They look like this, and you can see them in ANY product image for any of the frostbyte kits at any online shop. Sorry to hear Neweeg shipped them to you with a rubber band holding them together, that's terrible and sounds like someone sent you a return for some reason - Unacceptable!!

So maybe mine were the last ones tjey had and were used?? Oh well i ended.up seing them.back which newegg did.for me no problem. I couldnt stand the heat spreader falling.off

They don't usually come with manuals, just quick install notes on the back of the cardboard insert. Check a few of the Mushkin review links in my signature for how the packages and heat spreader W/ clips should look. The reviews on 998966 and 998679 both have the clips

Glad to hear they let you send them back without any hassles! Can't believe they would even ship out memory to anyone like that, it's terrible!

Even if it was someone's first day they should have known better! biggrin.gif

Well no hard feelings towards newegg.. Maybe they were just trying to pull a fast one on me lol..

I love newegg dont get me wrong.. Its easier to drive to Microcenter after work (30mins out of my way) Just so if something is wrong I can return it instead of having to do a Newegg RMA which takes a week to process..

Thanks for all the help though. I didnt know it was suppose to come with a clip.. If I knew that I would of complained more on the phone..

Everything has one of those fail moments. Don't worry. If they don't get it right the 2nd or 3rd time though, Newegg, I'm disappointed.

Newegg does rock when it comes to returns and customer service, but their shipping dept. needs some better workers as this isn't the first time I've seen bad things get shipped out to people!
