I have been reading up on modding a cpu heatsink for my ATI9500, and I have an extra stock heatsink from a 2400+ here at hand, but it seems damn heavy...

I currently have a crystal orb on my card...

I could also pull a fairly tall heatsink off of a K6-2 cpu I have and use it... I think it came from some socket 370 board and was once on a celeron 566... it is much lighter... but if I do this mod, I wand a heatsink that will DO THE JOB!

You dont use epoxy, you drill holes into the heatsink, and then run screws through the back of the card into it.

Eh? How does one know when to use screws or muck? Do you have some kind of formula to determine that ahh, this HS needs screws, and ahh, that one can do with sticky-muck?

Always drill holes/use screws if your card has holes in it.

What actually gets attention here are flames... name calling I did not partake in... I toally admitted I have asked noob questions, and in some areas, I cannot but continue to do so... my question was leading, for I do know it is too heavy... for some reason, GWs link did not work for me on several attempts...

Yet your points are fair... perhaps I did get carried away... I do concede, but I cannot promise not to spit...
