    Pros:

    Heat sink base bracket for am2

    posted by djzzzzzzz on 03/12/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Same shape as original connector... Fit well to my gigabyte motherboard. The plastic is a bit harder/ less flexible than the original bracket, but perhaps that means it will withstand the stress better. Stylish black rather than the multi colored original.
    Cons:
    Joins to motherboard with metal bolts rather than plastic connectors... dont over tighten! Seems to be stronger than original c...

    Pros:
    Ease of use, easy to clean as you throw out the applicator after each use. Uses a syringe applicator that expels the paste quite properly, and the thermal compound is not to liquid or solid, it smears just right. Can be used on low power items such as a ...
