Hi there,

Recieved my X1800 today, however I dont think im psychologically and physically prepared. It seems to me like its flying in the dark for me.

First of all I have the following things:

X1800 Card

MXM III slot motherboard

Air Duster Can

Some Screwdrivers

Thermal Grease

Anti Static Wrist Band

Ok I know I have to remove all the screws securing the Heatsink however when I do that it seems like its still being held in place by something is there glue or something else holding the Heatsink down? Should I just give it a firm pull?

Next thing : what the heck is a dremel and where do I need to cut something off of the heatsink? I need detailed instructions on that part as the ones on MXM are a bit vague.

Why do I need to cut something off?

About the heat issue?

Can I not get the fan to turn on immediately when booted or like to goto high power when CPU reaches 15 degrees???

Or could I get a notebook cooler?
