    Hi guys,
    accidently knocked off this heat sink (highlighted by YELLOW ARROW) on my sapphire gruper mobo, just wondering what is under there and will it survive without a heatsink?
    thanks

    Surely thats just a tiny heatsink? No purpose for it except to cool the little chip under it.

    Use some superglue to stick it on.

    does anyone know the function of the chip under there?
    everything seems to be working fine though.
