Let's get on with the installation
So, I pushed on with the installation figuring that it was going to be a pain in the butt, but to my surprise, everything went smooth as butta.
He're we go!! I tentatively ripped my new 256meg stick of pc-166 tonicom ram out of my sys and prepped it for modding (aka blowing the dust off the bugga and swabbing it clean with alcohol)
There, a nice clean stick. So I took one of the pieces of thermal tape, applied it to one side and stuck on one of the heatspreaders, whew, all is good.
Looks pretty good and aligned well, be sure to take care and align it properly or your ram locks will not be able to lock the ram to the mobo. So, with the initial feat completed successfully, I dove into a frenzy of thermal taping, heatspreader application and came up with this.
Not bad, looks really cool too (pardon the pun!!), so I put the clips on the little bugga and came up with a modded stick of tonicom ram.
All this for 5 minutes of work,,, GREAT!!!! All that has to be done is pop this bad boy into my Abit KT7 mobo with a AMD Duron 700 at 1Ghz and see how she goes.
We have a winner!! Everything posted up fine and my case temp rose 2 degrees, which will show you that the heat is being transferred well into the case environment. And another note, all inherent instabilities that prop up from time to time vanished which means I can play CS for hours on end without a single problem w00t!!!
