Solved Affects Of Scratched / Semi Crack heatsink Tags: Heat Heatsinks Processors Components Last response: November 6, 2009 11:52 PM in Components Share warcloudff November 6, 2009 10:32:44 PM I got this heatsink from a friend to try and see what happens but before I do I wanted to ask a few questions. Heatsink is: Core-Contact Freezer by Sun Beam Tech It has 4 heat pipes 2 of the 1st has one crack semi but still a little crack that can be felt by a finger nail, and the 4th heat pipe has similar crack and so does the base. On the 1st Pipe has an round 90degree angle that indented size of a finger or thumb nail. There's lots of scratches. And I was curious would that affect the cooling processor? Or Cause harm to my processor?
