Need a little help with this one, is there any special trick in removing ramsinks from a video card? The lil guys are held on by thermal tape, which I thought would come off with a little pressure but that is definitely not the case.
Maybe try running the card stressed to heat it up a bit (or a hair dryer) Other than that or some alcohol as a solvent. You may even be able to use an exacto knife or something to cut them off if you can do it without damaging the IC. I never had a problem just using brute force with tape. I did, however, pull a nice chip out of the center of a vreg when removing one held on with thermal adhesive. That stuff is strong.
Honestly wouldn't care, as long as they can handle my Phenom 9650 being clocked higher than 9950 at stock...and they have Phenom OCing options.
That's a tall order lol.
A little off topic: I don't turn on the heat in my house, like many people my office heats up a good portion of the house with as many computers that are in here running. This morning is particularly chilly and I just noticed my cat is behind this computer which has two folding 3870's at 80% fan speed blowing on her lol.
