    I have this shim (http://www.thermaltake.com/products/...ries/simXp.htm) and I'm just wondering if this shim is compatible to xp2200+.

    Thanks :)

    I can't say for sure, but I would think that you could lay it on top of the chip and tell if it does or not. If it does not touch any of the surface components and is not taller than the core (check with a straight edge), I would think it would work.

    Is that a copper shim?...if so...do not use it...it's conductive and can damamge your CPU. Instead buy a non- conductive shim.

    As long as the copper doesn't touch any of the bridges on the processor, then there should be no problems. The exterior of the XP processors are non-conductive.

    Just make sure that you put it on the right way. There is a definite up and down for these and only one way will ensure that you don't ground out any bridges. Just use a bit of common sense and you'll make it through just fine. :)
