i recently bought a coolermaster blue ice (slc-s41-u1) chipset cooler to replace my dying asus stock cooler. it seems that this cooler is attached via sticky thermal pad as there are no holes anyehere to screw it in. however i want to put abit of arctic silver 5 in to help reduce temps. anyway i can add arctic silver 5? will i see a differnce with arctic silver? do i just stick this cooler on to the chipset after removing the previous one and cleaning it up?

i kno these sounds kinda noobie, just that this was onspur buy and didnt rele research.

No, if there are no mounting holes and you have to glue the heatsink on, AS5 is not an adhesive... Just stick the cooler on...

Arctic Silver makes an adhesive compound for just that sort of thing.

Yes but be warned the artic silver adhesive is VERY permanent.

When twisting off some heatsinks I had glued onto the ram of an old geforce2 card (wanted to keep them becasue I polished them to a mirror finish lol) they came off still stuck to the chips!!! This is after the usual tricks of putting the card in the freezer etc.

I'd just use the pad, the amount of heat the chipset creates is nothing near that of a CPU so not as much need for a really good thermal connection.
