I'm thinking about passive cooling for my Radeon 9000. As I see it now, I have three options (thanks to everyone on the forum for helping me out before):
1) Use the ZM50-HP.
2) Use an old PII heatsink that I've managed to remove from an old machine with Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive.
3) Use an old PII heatsink that I've managed to remove from an old machine with cheap "plastic steel"-epoxy
Has anyone used the Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive, and if so, with what results?
The Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is only slightly cheaper than an ZM50-HP (at least where I live), so I am thinking about buying another epoxy (is says "plastic steel" on the tubes, whatever that means) from a local hardware store for about 1/8 of the price of the Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive. Which of the three alternatives would you recommend, the easy but expensive 1), the almost as expensive 2) or the most risky and cheapest 3) ?
