Installing ramsinks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What a pain I never knew it would be this difficult but I'm almost done, for anyone about to attach ramsinks, here are some tips:
Make sure you have cotton buds with isopropyl alcohol ready to wipe up any paste that drops on the card, This can also be used to start over and wipe 'Gel-Initial Cure' stage adhesive from the ramsinks and ram chip, also make sure you dont let the ramsinks slide out of place while its setting even during the 'Gel-Initial Cure' stage(it's easier for this to happen then you'd think), and I recomend doing no more then 2 ram chips at a time(dont use the same mix for 3 or more ramsinks).
I hope this saves some people going through what I went through.
