    And it wouldn't hurt for ya to take some advice from others here like NegoMike as he is doing what you seem not too.......using the
    Hmm I think you have confused me....
    Why do you think that I am here? I do my research. But I guess that I didnt research well enough. I used the information from heatsinkdatabase for instructions on how to properly install a heat sink. I did it correctly, I just damaged the card some how in the handleing of it. Prob like what rack says. I have contacted MSI and am expecting a RMA number because there are no local retailer in my area that sell msi off the shelf. I talked to a retailer of MSI and he said that MSI usually wont inspect your card too closely so if I clean it up and put the old stuff on it, I should be getting a new card in about 2 weeks, if not they will just send the broke one back and Ill try my switch technique some other place.

    I do apreciate your help and advice, but I feel like im being made fun of because I am a newb and im trying to learn as I go. When I was doing this project I had the mind set that I knew exactly what I was doing.
    my view on the two party system...

    Yo, Zealious, chill man, no need to get your back up.......we/i were not trying to have a laugh at your expense......i have no more than 2 months here at TT myself. And i can't speak for others, but, i believe most post questions here for a reality
    check on their ideas, if they are dealing with fairly virgin topics/hands on experience in a specific category.

    I too research inspite of/because of my 20+ years exp. "Knowledge is power" but no amount of reading can substitute for doing.........so's ya pay your money and takes your
    chances; however the better prepared one is the fewer chances
    one takes.

    You seem to admit in the above quote that you may just have been too impatient.......lol......aren't we all at 1 time or another.

    :D : peace2: :cheers:

    [monologue]

    ZeAliOuS I did the same thing as you when I first joined this forum. I had been reading articles on and off for quite awhile and thought I had a pretty good handle on things. I have found that reading an article is very different from reading an article with the goal of talking about it or solving a problem.

    Here are some suggestions that I think will make you forum experience more informative and more pleasant. First, I strongly suggest you begin spell checking your posts. In fact, I write just about all my posts in MS word. Proof reading is key! If you expect people to take time to give you answers then you must take time to write a clear concise question.

    Reread your post once itís posted! I regularly miss spelling/grammar mistakes, unintentional changes in meaning, or just plain confusing language. Imagine what would happen if I didnít check my posts!?!?

    Also, realize ***this stuff takes time*** the post I wrote you with the picture actually took me over three perhaps over four hours to research and write. It was done over two days. This post is taking over an hour.

    In forums asking about information that is widely available on many different sites is generally considered bad form and upsets people. I know, cause I did that same thing in my first couple of posts.

    Wiggo shot a little tiny bit of a spark in my general direction. I got a clue, got up off my lazy backend, and have spent and will continue to spend hours/days/weeks researching topics before I post a question about them. Most questions have been answered somewhere on the web. Use Google.com to search for topics if you canít find any articles by browsing. (Iím just starting to do this)

    From my personal experience of being a newbie, expect to be made fun of. Most of these guys have been here years and every couple of days or so, someone joins and asks questions whose answers are widely available. Further more, most soon disappear and if not they continue asking questions without first looking for answers.

    My personal super secret technique to learning is that I usually start at tweaktown. Click the links for nvNews and Inquirer and begin following links from one story or article to another. Looking for things that interest me. You donít have to religiously read everything on every site (though it helps). But if you want to know about how to apply thermal compounds you need to do more then look up your heat sink and read the instructions.

    Read any article that talks about or reviews heats sinks, thermal issues, or basic guides. They will usually briefly discussing the process of attaching the heatsink. Those funny rabidhardware.com while they make fun of reviews they use the format that is generally used everywhere when evaluating a product. One can gain insight into reviews because these carry little or no real information. They also are great examples of, ďjust because you see something in a review you shouldnít do it if it doesnít make sense to you.Ē

    In summery:

    Asking how to install a heatsink is bad form.

    Asking for a link to a guide on how to install a heat sink is still bad form but not quite as bad.

    Iím not sure about asking about how one should go about finding articles about heatsinks.

    The best choice is to wander from site to site and/or google search using different words. Then read about four, five, ten, or twenty articles about what you want to know or items related to what you want to know. Come to the forum and talk about it, ask about something you donít understand, or ask if people agree or disagree with the information you found and your understanding.

    [/monologue]

    Sorry about the length of this post, I canít seem to shorten it anymore without compromising content.
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.
