these things?




they are thermal pads for the vram not vrms. if they are hard to take off . . . just use a hair dryer to heat them up a bit, then carefully take them off using your fingers. hopefully you did not trim your nails lately.

Sorry, Welcome to OCN. checkout the Rigbuilder at the upper righthand corner of the page.
