ramsink won't stick.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so one of my ramsinks won't stick. What should I do? Should I put a dab of thermal paste on it?

Edit: I just put thermal paste.

You can also try heating it before applying it. The thermal pads that come with ramsinks are heat activated (which is why they don't fall off when the parts heat up) and running a lighter across them quickly 3 or 4 times makes them much stickier and easier to apply.

Thermal Paste isnt sticky. Thermal Adhesive is. Your ramsinks should be fine just use a hair dryer or something to heat them up before you stick them on
