    The heatsink goes on a chip on the MB. It's a HP slimline type so I'm guessing it's the video chip. I looked at the board for maybe 10 sec so I'm not too sure.

    The heatsink is about 1" square and has two arms coming out. It didn't look like they attatch to anything on the MB so I'm wondering if I need a thermal adhesive of some type.

    Anyone know?

    if it's not screwed/clamped or anything, yes you need the adhesive type
