    i just got the twin turbo pro and finally got rid of the stock fan... now a new problem arises as the ram heatsinks that came with the twin turbo pro comes off easily... i followed the instructions thoroughly and scrubbed the memory with an eraser prior to applying the heatsink on the memory... but alas to no avail.. there has been a few instances where i would hear a ram heatsink fall.. >_<

    i read how it was better to use the stock red plate instead of the memory heatsinks that came with the twin turbo pro... but i couldnt get it to mount properly.. the heatpipes were in the way...

    aside from resorting to using superglue to make them stick.. is there any other way to make those darn memory heatsinks to stick?... and if i was to use superglue, would it be better to get rid of the tape attached to the bottom of the memory heatsink and have the bare memory heatsink make contact with the ram directly?

    any suggestions and help would be appreciated...
