Ding on the heatsink Tags: Heatsinks Cooling Tiny Overclocking Last response: August 6, 2010 8:37 PM in Overclocking Share micahhr August 6, 2010 7:25:41 PM I received my new heatsink and I found a tiny nick on it. Will this cause a problem with cooling and should I RMA the heatsink? The nick is on the lower right section of the HS, between the center and the lower right corner. It is pretty small, maybe a .5mm x 1mm.
