Oops..
Yesterday, I was trying to get rid of my 8500's heatsink with a razor blade
but I just can't get rid of it, I think i'm being too chicken :eek:
cuz i'm afraid of kill my 8500
Do I have to like penetrate the razor blade between the heatsink and GPU .. strongly?

After a month of being a total puss, I got mad and just popped the HSF off my 8500LE with a dull knife....it went "SNAP!", and it was off. When I looked at the glue that was under it, it was only covering a small portion of the chip. Talk about crappy cooling. My card was built by ATi.

Up 'til John Stewart comes on at midnight. I get to pull a late week for the rest of the week 10am start times. WooHoo!

I installed and removed about 1500 lines today between 8am and 7pm. Now it's MY time (watching Enemy of the State on ABC while I surf).

Also Mmmmm, Bryer's Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, MMMmmmm! :cool:
