At least it's DIP and not BGA so it can be fixed. 😛

Old heatsink nightmare !!!

I've seen that happen before (it can be repaired though).

I always heat as much as i can , before trying to remove old such type of heatsinks.

Do you know if, that was an original manufacturer compound or an aftermarket one ?

I ask cause back in the days we used to make our own compounds , using epoxy in the mix.

:)

I dunno. All that i know, that heatsink shouldn't be glued to GPU, and previous owner was a dumbass.

I successfully removed other memory rad and GPU heatsink, so I don't need to upload nightmares anymore :)

I have slightly different heatsinks on my Hercules GF3 Ti 500 but they are glued on as well they not the only thing from that era that had heatsinks glued on with epoxy

Where is the topic of discussion for round 5 ?

Watching football ?

 

I can take a wild guess , that some people may have to work too many hours sometimes , to provide to their families ?

No time for football.
