    Hey everyone, I have an issue. I have a computer that I was going to fix, only to find out that the CPU heatsink brackets had broken. I figure there are two options: 1) Replace motherboard, 2) get thermal adhesive. Its an older socket 478 w SDRAM, price is an issue.

    So obviously thermal adhesive sounds good,but I have never used it, what do you think?
