I recently bought a micro atx mother board and have run into a problem. The stock amd CPU heatsink sits so close to the ram that they are actually touching.
I assume that this will cause future problems as the heat from the ram will be added to the cpu heatsink and vice versa.
My short term solution until I get a after market heatsink was to cut an old SATA and put it in between the cpu and ram to act as a buffer so the two aren't directly touching. I did this because I believe that the SATA cable has a high temperature threshold but really have no idea.
Will this solution destroy my computer while I wait for my new heatsink to arrive?
