So, been trying to find some sticky stuff to fasten my various heat sinks to random chips on motherboards and vga cards etc.
But finding a 'good' option seems baffling. After reading millons of contradicting reviews on products available, I don't really know what to believe.
Hence I am asking the good folks on Vogons, what (still available for sale) tapes and/or glues have YOU successfully used for your sticky AND thermal conductivity needs ?
Here are some examples of candidates that is to be securely(!) fastened, while still being able to transfer/conduct maximum heat:
And I am open for both permanent fixtures, as well as more benign/removable variants of sticky material, as long at it keeps the heat sinks in place over long periods of time without any worries.
AND that they actually lets the heat transfer to the heat sink without too much 'resistance' as well. (which also seems to be an issue with the 'reviewers')
Amazon or ebay items are probably the easiest to access for me, but I am open for other online sources as well.
'Model' names/numbers/whathaveyou I can specifically search for would be much appreciated.
