Thermal Glue... that's removable, somewhat.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well, I need to mount some heatsinks onto the chokes and mosfets of my GPU.

I'd really much rather use some thermal glue that I can remove later (or adhesive) if I decide to go back to stock (ie. reselling).

I know the one that comes with the VR001 kit, is most likely permanent sooo..

Since I'm putting a Kuhler 620 on the GPU, nothing will be holding the ramsinks against the board beside, well, the ramsink and the thing used to bond the two.

Is there anything such as this, or should I just suck it up and use the thermal glue?
How long should I wait for the thermal glue to fully cure (Arctic's stuff)

I was looking around and its seems like this works
http://www.ebay.com/sch/sis.html?_itemId=160397670011&_nkw=Sekisui%20Thermal%20Adhesive%20Tape%20for%20Chipset%20RAM%20Heatsinks
Thermal tape should come off easily. I'm currently using ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme PLUS ii and the epoxy seemed like it was going to fall off when I put it on but after about 5 hours it seemed like it stuck. I didn't touch them since I was afraid that they would fall off.

I hope to keep this card & the cooler attached to it for a little longer, so I've been rethinking the thermal glue.

Going with something permanent makes it almost impossible to bring it back to stock....
Which is a bummer since it is such a beautiful card with the stock cooler..
