I just got a standard chaintech fx5700 (125$) and I think I can do a bit better with the speeds. The card has a heat sink over the gpu front and back but nothing on the hynix memory modules. Has anyone heard how good the card and memory does on overclocking? The main point of the post is to ask where I can get some ram sinks. compusa and fry's failed me. I want the kind I can apoxy onto it.

Not sure where to buy, but you might be able to get a nice regular sink with lots of thin fins, and chop it into itsy bitsy pieces to slap onto your memory.

Now, please allow me to scare the living daylights out of you:

Well, you could try <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufa..." target="_new">newegg.com</A> (RamSinks)... There are a couple of other manufacturers there, apart from just the one I linked to...

And for adhesive, again <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDesc.asp?descripti..." target="_new">newegg.com</A>... Although I would advise caution, as this stuff is electrically conductive, so if you get it in places it's not supposed to be, you could do some damage. If you can, see if you can find some Arctic Alumina Thermal Adhesive. This is NON-conductive, and I've used some successfully myself, but they don't have any at newegg as far as I can tell, and I don't know any other good US sites (I'm in the UK)
