Melted plastic on computer parts

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, so it all started when my ram fan was blowing dust on my ram heatsink and the tape on the heatsink was to weak so it came apart. So for my solution i had duck tape and rolled it up like a oval shape and put it on my heatsinks then I sandwich the ram stick onto my heatsink and now i'm scared that the tape will melt and might drip on my video cards. Sometimes I dont think before I do. frown.gif

Ram fans are un necessary unless you are throwing huge volts and a high clocks at the ram. Remove the fan if you are worried.
DUCT TAPE* doesn't really drip when it gets burnt (in my experience) it just shrinks and goes crumbly.

Can you post a pic of this solution? Im having trouble visualising it.

Jake is correct, unless you are maxing out your ram clocks / volts, ram fans are not really needed.

I believe he has folded the tape onto itself in order to make double sided tape. Then Stuck the fan to the ram. Is this correct?
