I need some help on a cooler decision please?

Out of habit I started a thread at another forum in regards to my new GF3Ti500. I was getting some mixed answers, and decided I should have posted here anyway
This is the chipset cooler:

One thing I hope I've just read to many reviews, and seen to many pictures, but I purchased a Ti500, should it say "Ti500" on the chip anywhere?
The other is should I lap the chip and/or the cooler?
Also, if I use AS epoxy, and use more of the "part B" would my chances of getting this cooler off again be any good?

Well, I got tired of waiting, and lapped the stuff. Now, I'm afraid to epoxy it together, because it might not work? OH well, I guess I'll just give it a shot

That's an impressive chunk of aluminum. As long as it's a good choice for the job(and I don't know if it is) some AS Epoxy(as thin as a gnat's wing, and as even as a laser, naturally) seems like a good idea. As to lapping, it rarely seems so hurt. While holding the block of aluminum properly to lap it isn't difficult, how do you "hold" on to the Vidcard the right way? Personally, I'd be very careful with the GPU! Maybe a once over with some 1200 grit wet 'n dry(wetted with water, of course!) using as large a piece of flat glass that you can hold-as the sanding block in your hand- would do?

Sorry about the delay in answering your post. I must be asleep at the switch!

Not really. I've read many reviews of the CPU coolers with similar designs, and they just don't perform. And I could make that in 20 minutes on a drillpress by hand, less than 5 minutes if I'm allowed to use CNC.
