Default My Tuniq Tower 120 Fan Heatsink question

Ok, if i change my mobo, i have to remove that thing that goes in the back of the mobo so i can connect the fan. However, it uses that double sided tape thing and it stick there really hard and its soo hard to get also.

So when I remove that thing in the back, and say if the double sided tape doesnt stay there, is it ok if the metal part is touching the back of the mobo?

If you dont know what im talking about take a look at this picture




see the white tape on those black metals? if i dont have that will it be fine? cuz it will be touching the mobo and not sure if its good or not.

I dont really understand what your saying, theres just a sticker covering the sticky part. You remove the sticker and put it on the back of the mobo....thats all there is too it.

yup i did that on this mobo. Now heres what im saying. If you remove that part, which is really hard because it sticks there really well, and say that tape gets ripped. will it still be fine if the tape gets ripped and install the back on a new mobo or do you have to buy a new one of those little things/bracket or whatever you call it and buy a new one from tuniq everytime you install it on a new mobo?

Eh, you might want to contact Tuniq and request a new metal thing I am sure they will send one out if you cover shipping and minor costs that is prolly the safest way to go

Definetly. You're smarter then this, come on! Now most mobos don't really have protruding metal contacts in the back but it's still a bad idea to have metal draped across electronic componets like that :-P

They'll give ya another one, go to their website

Also grr stupid OEM version of vista. I was thinking of bringing my mobo to compusa and tell them its broken so i can upgrade to the NVIDIA 680i mobo but grrr ihave oem vista and not sure if i can install it on the new mobo, will i be able to? or when u install the disc does it prevent u from installing or it allows u but wont let you register?

It's the reguistering that's going to kick your arse. Microsoft won't let you register it on two different machines. However I have my copy on like 12 different machines. It's really easy to snow those foreign tech support guys :-P
