Re: Macbook pro's 2011

Ah, i was thinking of upgrading my i5 2.53 17" to this year's model. Guess not need to consider it now and just go with a SSD upgrade (Vertex 3! :lol: ). Playing civ 5 makes the 2010 model quite loud already, i can't imagine it can get louder with this year's model. Probably it's time for apple to r...

I run passive on my amd 4850e with the s-1284. should be fine for 1283 too. i don't think there's much difference between 1283 and 1284. i got 1284 because the price was the same as 1283.

is the clip on holes for the heatsink clip of the K7 the same as the AM2? If so, is it possible to bend it enough to fit? Don't really want to break the K7 clip and I can't really do too much modding right now since I won't have my tools to do that until I go back home in June.

I agree with bryan_d. The SI-97 is to large for AS Adhesive on a 9700pro. But a socket A stock HSF would work I think. But if you have a SI-97 laying around check out the guide bryan_d links to. Seems like the way to go for you. :) Drill and tap is usually the best way to go in most cases. AS Adhes...

seems like this SI-97 mod is a better idea for a more powerful card.

AS Adhesive will work fine. You might want to try a mix of 50/50 with AS Adhesive and AS3 (will probably work with AS5 as well, anyone knows for sure?) to create a slighly weaker bond. That way you can remove the heatsink later if you would want to. With 100% AS Adhesive you will probably not be ab...

I was thinking of doing a mod such as this with my Radeon 9700 pro using my spare Si-97 or my stock AMD Sempron 2800+ HS.

Will the Arctic Silver Adhesive work well with this since they are relatively light heatsinks?
