    Hello All,

    I recently purchased an Iceberq pro heatsink to mount on my Radeon 9800 (the stock heatsink is crap :no: ). But I forgot to do my homework and much to my dismay, when it came in I realized that the pro version is meant for GeForce cards, not Radeon, whoops :no:

    I figure that I can just use some Arctic Alumina adhesive to secure it on, but I wanted to make sure that no unforseen consequences will result if I glue it on. :flames:

    Thanx in advance!

    P.S.- I was looking into de-shimming the card as well, but I dont quite know how to do that and I believe I might want to take care of that now before I permanently epoxy a heatsink on! :no:
