    Hello everyone I'm looking for the heatsink for a P870KM CPU

    Unfortunately I have one for a TM But it's not making great contact with my IHS

    Please let me know if anyone has one or if there is a easy Mod I can do .

    Regards Damin

    I have the KM1 cpu heatsink + fan, I can trade it with your TM1 heatsink.
    You pay for shipping and I'll do the same.
    Regards.

    Okay, I'm living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, PM me with your pictures and I'll do the same.
    I can understand if you don't like to ship internationally .

    BTW, there are many Mods may fix the problem, if you still like to use the TM1 heatsink, we need more information and pictures so we can help you to fix the contact issue.
    -The most important one, that you need to replace the CPU Back plate with the TM1 model, it's different than the KM1 one, it's more lower.
    - Replace the Intel CPU IHS with other custom one like this one for the i9 9900K https://www.rockitcool.com/collections/9th-gen-cpu/products/copper-ihs-for-9th-gen or other brands. It has more height. There is different one for 8th generation.

    If you did that and still have issues, then the other Mods will need more efforts from you to do it.

    This is the TM1 CPU heatsink looks like:

    Ok so the one I have I thought was from the TM but it looks like it's not from it .


    I think I might need to find a thicker copper IHS like you showed me above

    You should upload a picture of your heatsink to see. I remember my original heatsink from eurocom has a little extra copper for better contact. If you dont find, i'm selling a heatsink who is air cooling bit can be use as watercooling for extra dissipation.
