Big thanks to Richard Pruen for the pics!

in his own words..


I got a chipset cooling kit from PCworld for £3 and cut up some heatsinks from that. Previously I had cut up an old 486 heatsink, but it was a little too tall.

The small hacksaw used was from a pound shop (cheap! -ed), and I doubt it would be much use for cutting anything but aluminum.

I used some heat conductive epoxy (arctic silver) but the thermal double sided tape in the heatsink kit would be fine if you don't have anything else.

Hope that is of some use
