    I am looking for the little rubber feet on the top of the CPU chips. I had one stick to a HSF and ripped when it was removed...I have never seen them for sale anywhere but I Know that someone has to make them...anyone know where?

    you could probably just make them. A little foam pad and some suitable adhesive and your laughing.

    try like a staples store ? I have some of those and they have 3M on the backs of the paper that sticks to them before I stick them on something else. dunno how small they get but these are less then 3/4 mm

    I thought about that but I didn't know about Temperature tolerances, hmmmmmmI was thinking about just using an old mouse pad but i am not sure if it would melt!

    another consideration is compression, you cant have one pad compress more than the other three, that would tip the HSF off and possible crack the die of the chip, so I think i am going ot avoid non approved pad thingies, i just wish I Could find where they are sold! if not I will have to wing it!

    Are you talking about a thermal pad? Why not just use thermal compound for better heat transfer?
