Help with Ramsink and VRM sink installation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I purchased a Arctic cooling accelero twin turbo II. and i mixed the G1 thermal glue compound and applied on the sinks and let cure for 5 hours...

I come back 6 hours later.. and it they won't stay on.. they just slide off..

What do...?
If i can't attatched cooling to the VRM's and memory i can't use my card?

Clean both surfaces off with rubbing alcohol, wipe it clean until it makes a squeaking noise, then reapply and blast the thing with some airflow. If it still doesn't work then you'll have to buy some thermal tape to make those things stick.

I'm at work so I can't look at my directions but if I remember correctly after cleaning the ram/vrm it recommended rubbing the surface with a pencil eraser to ensure the glue worked. Did you try that? I installed 8 of the included heat sinks on my ram and they are still holding fine.
