I hate ramsinks! - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Superglue shouldn't kill it if you put it on right. Like he said, A dab in the corners should be good, Just keep it between the RAMsink and the ramchip, Not on the PCB.

As for condensation, The full method of doing it...
  1. Put the card in a freezer baggie (for frozen meat and the such).
  2. Let it sit for like 20-30 minutes in the freezer.
  3. Pull it out of the bag and twist the ramsinks off.
  4. After thats all done, You put the card in the oven at a REALLY LOW temperature and let it sit for 20 or so minutes until its properly dried.
Now step 4, Thats just for speed, If you don't feel like EVGA for dinner, Just go over it gently with a hair dryer.

I'll look up the proper guide later, I remember it for the most part because the first time I read it I thought it was the equivelant to taking a dump on your card and hoping the RAMsinks would twist themselves off.

that sounds like a viable technique to me... a little risky but it sound like a plan... and the glue stuff from AS isnt super glue, its an epoxy... just wanted to clear that up. lol

Ummm, no it's not. That is in fact the easiest way to destroy your hardware. Shame on you Filip

Nope, superglue is just fine.


I am actually going to move this thread. It started off as a Rant, but there is some good info here, so hmmm, how about the Video Cards general section.

The cooling procedure is almost the same for the RAM chips as well. A thin layer of thermal compound is to be applied evenly on the RAM chip. The RAM sinks are to be attached on the chips by using a couple of tiny drops of super glue at two ends of the heatsink. There are self-adhesive thermal compounds as well, but they do command a high premium. The amount of super glue has to be just enough to ensure that the RAM sinks stick properly to the chips and there are no air pockets between the RAM chip and the RAM sinks.

believe me I HAVE ripped off a ramsink with the ram still attached to it!!!! the freezer method is ok at best...what I mean is that if not alot of thermal glue was used it will come off with a little force.....however the cold does make the connection between the ram and the PCB colder thus making it easier to twist off and kill your card......thus my RMA'd gto2....thankfully I got my RMA back, brand new gto2 RED PCB none the less.....and all withen 3 weeks including my shipping time to them. All it took was getting a little mad.....

interesting arcticle BTW.....
