My System Specs

Default Accelero S1 Rev. 2 ram sink fell off :(

Accelero S1 Rev. 2 ram sink fell off during cleaning of GPU and HSF.

GPU almost spotless, but a single ram sink fell off

What to do? need thermal tape? gluing it would void the warranty from XFX

Help me out

Mine didn't stick to well either so i just used artic silver adhesive to glue em on.I'd rather go without warranty and know they where gonna stay on than have them fall off and cook a ram chip voiding the warranty anyways.

Thermal tape should also do the trick.
