Would either one of these do?

Price of postage (could be 6 given the weight/location)

If TheoryBoy's doesn't work out, I might have one available if some new thermal compound doesn't fix my overheating problem. The fan is strong and heat sink is still good, I think the CPU might just be on it's last legs. I'll keep an eye on the thread and will send dimensions if the other one doesn't play out.

That one above is from an acer, this one is from a dell laptop. I have more laptops hanging around, I will open them tomorrow there might be something more suitable.

the 1st one will be a tight fit, but I think i can get it in there (fnar) so let's talk beer tokens, how much do you want for this heatsync bud?


cheers, JuvUK

You might be able ot bend it a little, to get it to fit. Just postage is fine. PM your address and I will get it sent out. I dont know exactly how much it costs, but at estimate it could be 6. What I can do is post it if post costs are reasonable and then let you know.

@Juv

Glad TheoryBoy's pipe is going to work out for you. After application of a new layer of thermal compound, my laptop is kicking along nicely again. Now to find a flash card to notebook drive adapter to get rid of the overheating drive...
