I've recently been given a load of parts and some of the RAM sticks included have heatsinks on them.
I'm talking about flat, aluminium shields, in to parts which encase virtually the whole stick (not the 'spiky' individual chip cooling type).
So anyway, I have several spare of these heatsinks and wondered if it would be worth fitting them to the RAM I have installed that don't have these currently fitted.
1) Do these type of heatsinks work?
2) Will I need a special adhesive to attach them to the RAM. It looks like they have been fitted using some type of double sided tape.
3) Could I simply use something like superglue around the edges of the aluminium plate and attach them that way.
Thanks as always.
Oh - These heatsinks might be copper.
