Ramsinks from Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme GTX PRO won't mount....what now?

post #1 of 6

I got NVIVO 2 and VRM heatsinks mounted. All that's left is the RAM sinks. It said the adhesive won't mount if they're not clean. The RAM chips ARE clean...so clean you can eat off them.

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?

Some 3M 8115 will work well.
I ordered too much, and going to see if I can return the ones I never used, or if not; just sell them.

Unless you overclock I wouldn't even put heatsinks on memory. They use almost no power and generate almost no heat. Heatsinks on ram are a placebo effect IMO. Look at makers like Asus MSI Gigabyte their custom cards don't have any heatsinks on their memory. But if you must try this thermal tape http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/akthadtaak80.html
My friend just used it on his GTX 680 Arctic Cooling Twuin Turbo 2 build and he said it worked great.....
