    Is that a plastic zip tie on a heat sink? I guess something like that wouldn’t get too hot, but that still was the first thing that caught my attention

      Oh wait, hurp durp, read what it does after looking at the pic. My bad

      Yeah,thats kinda a stupid idea.But this guy does 3.3V @ 250mA,so thats about 0.8W…I needed something to keep the heatsink on..Couldve used a metal clamp,but .. this aint gonna get _real_ hot,so I figured,why not.

        Back in the day when we overclocked the early 286/386 hardware they started using surface mount chips when they improved the process and failures were minimum. So we used a heat sink with thermal transfer coumpound and put a couple drops of epoxy on the chip in the corners to attach it. It worked pretty well.
