hi, any1 any suggestions on a hsf that actually touches the cpu on a mobile athlon 64? i have an arctic cooler which doesn't so i soldered off the 4 plastic pins. it now makes contact but seems unstable (mounting) & can actually slip off cpu! this doesn't seem like a good idea so can any1 recommend a solution available in the uk? thanks, rich
sorry for the slow response but pretty much you need to actually look at the coolers first to determine if they will touch the cpu directly. I know the AMD 64 stock coolers for socket 939 (I believe 754 is the same) do touch it directly. And actually that little of a distance I doubt would make a huge distance, the feet are more of a stabilizer.
