Ati Radeon 4850 didn't have "Heat pads"
Mar 19, 2012, 5:16 PM
My Ati Radeon 4850 doesn't have Heat pads, which sit on the memory i believe?
it's a Ati radeon 4850 powercolor, it was brought brand new and when I opened there was no pads.
But my Ati radeon 4850 ASUS had these pads...is it because they were inside a Fan case?
The powercolour doesn't have a case around it just a fan sat on top.

if there isn't a heatsink for the pads to make contact with, there isn't need for those pads in the first place...

I think the heatsink sits above them about a cm or so.
-_- that shape with the fan clipping to the top of it.
