I'm Bored and was wondering how I would go about changing the stock paste on vid cards do I need adhesives or can I just use my 6.0g Syringe of Arctic Silver III, the geforce has mushroom tabs but the radeon is just a HSF.

Some video cards use two little plastic snaps to hold the hsf on, if yours does..that's how to keep it on. If it doesn't, don't use that as3. You need to get some as thermal epoxy (u can get it from www.2cooltek.com ). I suggest artic alumina since it isn't electrically conductive (so if u goof, u don't kill ur card)

Damn radeon has no tabs o well guess I'll buy some thermal epoxy. Also does anyone knows where I can get this mythical Shin Etsu G751 in the US?
