    Hello All,

    I have a radeon 9800np with a glued on heatsink (with arctic alumina thermal epoxy) and was wondering if there is any way too take the heatsink off? :shrug:

    I have heard rumors of putting the card in a freezer and prying it off?!?! :wow: but that sounds kind of risky!

    If not im alright with my current cooling setup, but was considering using a Zalman Heatpipe.

    Thanx in advance!

    hmm only way i know how to get epoxy off inolves heat =/ you could run 3dmark for about an hour then quickly shut your comp off and take it off maybe...but perhaps the freezer would work too.
