Various small heatsinks on motherboards Tags: Motherboards Heatsinks Processors Last response: March 28, 2009 8:30 PM in Motherboards Share SteveSmith1980 March 28, 2009 4:02:01 AM I just noticed recently that a small heatsink on my motherboard fell off. I have no idea how long ago this happened. My computer seemed to run just fine without it. It is left to the processor, and cover like 3 or 4 small chips. Are these small heatsinks very important? I have 2 of them on my motherboard (except the processor heatsink). I fixed it, but I didn't bother putting new thermal paste on it. There was already a sticky substance underneath so I assume the substance is still working. What are these small heatsinks for?
