Heatsink Glue type?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This isn't a video card issue but rather sound card and was hoping someone would have an answer in this forum. I opened my case today to find my creative sound blaster x-fi heatsink laying inside my case. Anyhow is there a special type of glue to reattach this to the chipset?

Thanks

Super glue and silver thermal compound will work?!

Just buy what Firestorm linked you to. In the meantime, you could probably run your X-fi without the heatsink (or do the tend to get so hot that it needs it?)

I can seem to run it without the heatsink but once I start pushing 7.1 audio and turn the music up it wants to go out. Better to fix what's broken than to run it without the heatsink.
