Hi
post #4 of 11
Hmmm... That's interesting. So you took out the plastic retaining pins? It might be on with some thermal glue. Now this is me thinking out loud, but if you run your board without those clips on it might heat that up enough and your heatsink will fall off. But as soon as that happens shut down haha. That's kinda dangerous but it might work if you want to re-apply your SB heatsink.

Wow, Fixed his grammar but not his problem...

Anyways, Not many people have the mars board, your going to have to give it some time.

Yeah, well anyways, if those clips are gone I wouldn't pull too hard. You might rip off part of your south bridge die, and that would brick your board. So your best bet would to look for someone who has this board and ask them.

Theres someone on here who did that to the northbridge. (need to find pic of it. Unfortunately you may not be able to get it off, Some heat with a hairdryer will help you loosen it up if it is just a stick thermal pad, but if its thermal resin/glue then you may be stuck. Try the hairdryer first but don't pull too hard, a slight twisting action may help too .

Yeah. I would doubt it, but it might be soldered onto the die. I don't think it would be, butI also don't know Foxconn boards too well either haha. But I like coffeejunky's idea with a hairdryer. If it's actually glued on then you might not be able to remove it (safely)
