Heatsink spacers

Yeah i know, i've always been carefull when dealing with dies and chips in general, and the screws have springs on them and a tightlock so you can't overtighten them. Lucky me i suppose 😁

Okay, this may not be your everyday situation if you're handy.

What ended up happening is as follows.

I opened up my gtx1650 super, a ventus model from msi, and replaced the thermal paste.

Next when i remounted the cooler it wasn't sitting straight. And i noticed one of the rubber cubes keeping the heatsink in place dropped. It was gone to the void.

 

Is it okay to just remove the remaining 3 and screw the heatsink back in place?

 

Current idea, replace the rubber by pieces of cardboard, the max temp of the gpu ever recorded was 83°C and if it starts smelling weird i'ill press alt+f4

In assumption the rubber is only needed to keep the heatsink from chipping the die and protect it from vibration (moving the pc).

Pretty sure these spacers are to prevent a lot of Force on the die. 

I wouldn't recommend it imo.

Okay, thank you a lot, though i don't have much of another option, since i lost a rubber cube, though it makes sense that i doesn't like a lot of force, but if there aren't any other side effects, i guess i just handle it with care. Now it's just heatsink on the die i guess.

 

If only i had some spare parts i guess.

Don't get rid of the extra spacers why would you?

Woops 😅 i already kinda threw them away, as i compared it to the gt1030 which didn't have any spacers and is also heatsink directly to the die

That's a significantly less heavy heatsink.

That is very true, i guess i'ill start saving for a new gpu in case it goes wrong somewhere.
