What's the best way to reattatch by Blue Orb to my chipset?
I have a Blue Orb on my chipset. It came with only 2 sided clear adhesive tape to secure it to the chipset. I heard a noise and when I opened the case it had become dislodged and was sitting against my Vid card and had rubbed one of my IDE cables bare on 1 wire. No problems, but need to replace that cable. What's the best way to re-attatch it? Your opinions are why I'm here, thanks for the help!
ECS K7VMA ver 1.0

Geforce2 MX200 64mb w/ TV-out
Blue Orb w/ hs
Maxtor 15G 7200 Primary Master
Volcano II H/S
Delta DVD 12x Primary Slave
Lite-on 16x10x40 Secondary Master

I would use either Artic Silver thermal adhesive, info here:
Or Artic Alumina thermal adhesive, its at the same site. Both a really good products.
Its up to you, but with either one, once its on there, its there for good.

I noticed you had your DVD on the Primary IDE with your HDD. You might want to put it as Primary with your CDRW. It just being on the same channel as your HDD will slow it down.This signature intentionally left blank.

It will bond them together?

Thanks ER. I have the CD-RW as the Secondary Master to separate the CD-RW and the DVD-Rom Drives. I heard that the CD-RW would be picky if I used the same IDE for both DVD and CD-RW and that the CD-RW needs to be tha master. Did I hear wrong?

Ok, I may be lost here, but your card already has a Heatsink on it..(the one at the AS site).Thread Killer

Actually, I would use the thermal adhesive to bond the blue orb directly to the chip itself. The case for the fan (the ridges rising around it) act as a heatsink in and of itself. IMHO, bonding it to another heatsink would probably reduce the desired cooling effect.
Sorry Blue, you hopped in there with the same idea!

I just know that if you have, say an ATA/100 or ATA/66 HDD on the same channel as a non-ATA/100 or ATA/66 drive, it will run at the speed of the slowest device. On IDE 2 I have a Pioneer 16X DVD that runs at ATA/66 on the same channel as a Yamaha 20X10X40X CDRW that runs at ATA/66. The DVD is primary and the CDRW is secondary. This is the recommended setup per both user manuals. I have two ATA/100 IBM's on IDE1. I have never had ANY problems burning CD's. Some apps may warn you about "On-the-fly" burning, but I have never experienced any issues.This signature intentionally left blank.

If there is already a heatsink perm. attached to the chip, I would skip the orb, and just get the highest cfm fan that fits the heatsink. I don't know what size it would take, 40mm, 50mm, or 60mm, but Sunon makes some good fans in smaller sizes.

So Blue, leave the original H/S on and change fans? I might do some reconfiguring E/R, like we all do constantly! HaHaHa!

Yes, I would leave the Heatsink on because there is a good chance you'll damage the board or chip removing it.
Reconfiguration is my favorite thing, always doing it. the only reason the case screws are in my side cover is because I just got it yesterday, I want to see what kind of temps I get with it running for awhile. That way I have a good general baseline to know whether I am doing good or bad things when I change something.

On this set up, right now my temps are: 100 F CPU
86 F Sys
How is that temp? No OC.
