yea not a great heatsink but with some as3 it should work better.  try it you will have to buy some as3 if you were to buy a new sink, so it wouldnt be wasted cash.

you could just get an SK6 and an 80 mm with some AS3 for way cheaper, and i think that would cool better for a t-bird. bu that's just my 2cents.

actually i got some crap lying around labeled "heat sink silicone compound"...and thats all it says
although it seems to have seperated into the "thick white part" and the "thin clear part"...veeeeeeeery sketchy.

..but crappy thermal paste for a crappy heat sink...better than no thermal paste at all hopefully.
thanks.

Um yeah, thermal grease is definatly required.  Just by adding some AS3, you should see a 7 degree drop in tempature, if not more.  Just remember that AS3 will work dramatically better if its applied properly.  Dont just dab some on and slap your HSF on it.  Look up the directions on the website, and follow them to the letter.

if you need an adapter to hook an 80mm fan to an sk6, it wont necissarily be way cheaper.  Although if you mean you can bypass the whole adapter part, than probably.

btw, my cpu temp is up to 55 degrees ah!~ =o

I should probably install this cyclone blower fan that i have that fits over my pci slot. should cool down my case a little bit.

when i changed my heatsink from a generic P.O.S.  to a dragon orb 3 i also switched from thermal grease to arctic alumina. i went from 130*F to 90-100*F. for those of you that can't subtract thats a 30-40 degree drop!!!!

all you do to put an 80mm on an SK6 is turn the fan sideways. you don't need an adapter to put an 80 on an SK6. remember nimblepan? our good friend ed has an 80mm on his SK6. :P
