I have found that i have a curse, every computer i fix becomes high maintnance and it is making me mad. i had a celeron d (long live intel) i have it overclocked from its origonal 533 MHz- 599 MHz and it ran 57C but worked fine. so i replaced my cpu thermal paste to Hot Glue! And the temperature drops from 57C to 45C and the computers ram overheated and just died. i fixxed the one problem and another part dies. this has continued with my other computers. any wierd vodoo that someone can cure my curse with?

stop working them.. and stop overclocking.. you don't seem to have it down just yet.

Hot glue? Sounds bad.

How did your RAM overheat, did you overvolt it?

no overvolting on the ram it just seems like everything on that computer decides to break randomly

You should hot glue your case shut to keep yourself out of it.... :rotfl:

Hot glue as thermal paste. . . :wth:

LMAO! wouldn't the hot glue just continually remelt everytime the cpu gets hot?! why did you do that?

:rotfl: Comment on gluing the case shut was exactly what i was thinking! Awesome!

When it comes to sticking things together Glue > Paste so one would think that it is better for other applications too, no? This is also true with soldering as hot glue is quicker and more efficient than solder + iron when connecting two wires and it looks cooler. :thumb:

The goal of the paste is to transfer heat to the heatsink, not keep it fixed on the chip.

do you really think that hot glue can transfer electricity like solder can ?

if so, please have a fire hose ready, LOL

Twist wires together, apply glue to seal them in.

might work, but i am old school, solder and heatshrink for me.

I was being sarcastic...:) I know what thermal paste is for filling in microscopic grooves and what not. As for replacing solder with hot glue it's a joke within the PS2/XBox modding community where people hot glue wires to the pins. :D I use solder and heatshrink for wire to wire connections and hot glue on exposed solder connections like for PCB's or pins.
