    the things you have removed are designed for disapating heat from the chips so i would get some thermal paste and put them back on quickly.
    Yeah that is true.. although it's lovely and quite normally haha
    luckily i have some thermal paste left so i will try it, i did think it was worrying that these came off, because they must be needed otherwise they wouldn't be in there, thanks!

    I doubt removing them would make the sound suddenly start - more likely to be the CPU fan.
    well I think it was the graphics card he took out because I had a problem with my computer not turning on after we put the new things in (but that's a different matter) and the heatsinks were just rattling around in there, so may not have been from my graphics card at all, just found in there, probably fallen off because of fitting the cpu fan, not purposely pulled off though. do you think it's worth sticking back on the motherboard? I'll also try the fan to see what happens.

    Yeah, as Glennda said, definately stick the heatsinks back on. If they've got double sided tape on the bottom (common for some smaller heatisnks) then the thermal paste wont let them stick back down and they wont really work...

    In some cases (depending on the use of the heatsink) they wont need thermal paste.

  4. Thanks to Chris-W- from:

    Been a while, but just thought I would update, if anyone else has this problem (also because I said I would tell you about my progress haha). It was my graphics card, so I downloaded Rivatuner. With this program comes another called D3DOverrider, which you need to keep minimized while playing the game that causes the issue. force vsync and triple buffering need to be on. This works, thank God haha Thankyou again for your suggestions though
