i have a gigantic LGA 775 heatsink but it does not work with 478 but i did use some thermal paste on it and held it in place and the CPU idled at 19C compared to stock 56C idle will using thermal adhesive work fine?

i don't care if i will ever be able to reuse the heatsink or cpu again im buying a 3.4Ghz and aftermarket cooler in a week or 2 anyway.

will it even work?

If that's the case I wouldn't do it. Only if the board is horizontal.

okay thats bull i put some on my PS2 and i tried to take it off and i ended tearing the chip off the PCB and i had to grind the chip off to use the heatsink again (not the one i will be using on this cpu)

its half the weight of the stock heatsink lol

Then you are talking about thermal epoxy. I was just trying to help you.

Honestly if you been using it this long. Will 2 more weeks kill you to do it properly then? Unless your pc is just shutting down from heat. I would just let it ride for a few more weeks.
