Need urgent help with 5870 cooler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I'm thinking about installing my ICY vision, and with it it came with a bunch of rubber washers. I only have 3 left. Is it safe to install? I think these are so if I overtighten, the PCB does not get damaged? Am I fine without them?

You need them to mount the cooler w/correct pressure. Go to your local HW store and bring the washers with you, Lowes, Home Depot should have something very close. You should use them or find something equivalent in size.
