Then make sure you're not going to have to remove it from it's cage. Then you can even use AS epoxy.

But buying heatsinks/cooling solutions, which make it more expensive in the end is ?

hmm, in that case, but you won't be able to get rid of the high pitched noise.

ordinairy thermal goop.

BTW epoxy on this is less important since you can give it a good wank if it won't come off. It's not like the GPU core is going to come off eh.
even chisel it if you like (boil it maybe)

i'm using my 80GB in the cdrom slot too. I use blue foam kind of sound&heat insulator... I squizzed foams both sides and botom,up are free. I'd tought that this way I can dissolved hot air from top. Bu you are sayng that the most heat producing area is sides. Is that true? If its true then I'm just making things worse huh???

hard drives produce most heat at the sides indeed. the top and side HDD housing is of metal, so it's not that bad the sides are covered. the heat can get out at the top

indeed, this is because the electronics can't bear high temperatures.

it's not very likely a bad HD kills the mainboard but it *IS* possible. if you send 5v or 12v through the data lines (a few millivolts) won't it do any good

housing done. stuffed it up with as much foam as possible

unfortunately, it doesn't isolate as well as it used to. I still hear the high pitch. monitoring the HDD temp btw, now 30

no airflow and no heatsinks on the CDrom drive

edit: 35
