[Review] Arctic Cooling Accelero Hybrid - Page 7

post #61 of 133
Plenty of pads are naturally tacky, or have a thin layer of adhesive to assist in installation, but in general, they are not strong enough to be used to mount heatsinks alone. They are also intended to be used while compressed, for better gap filling and less thermal impedance.

Tape comes in a wide variety of thicknesses and is stronger material with stronger adhesives, meant to hold heatsinks in place by themselves.

So logically I would want the thinnest thermal tape available?

So for my application, why wouldn't thermal pads be suitable? Because of the lack of retention mechanism (pressure)?
Sethy, what is your comment on this?

Okay, looks like we hit one of those definition barriers tongue.gif

What Im referring to is what you would call tape... double sided adhesive stuff that holds HS to things like Vrams.

I call them pads because its generally thicker than tape... so i can see why we are all confused redface.gif

Kevindd, use the tape. You can go as thin as you like as long as its secure after application.

Thank you, lol.

As far as tape is concerned, what is the best one available?

This is stuff I use... never had an issue...

Thanks. I'm wondering if it's the best though. Are there any comparison reviews of different thermal tapes out there?

Cant answer that one, my curious Padawan.

Im unable to source any comparision charts for thermal tape. frown.gif

I ended up using the included thermal glue (Which is easy to use and no longer requires mixing) on the memory modules but instead used thermal "pads" on the VRMs for convenience if I had to swap out the cooler during testing.

Also, the Accelero Hybrid is on sale for $100 on NewEgg right now, which is a steal of a deal:

And I just won an ebay auction for this at $112.50 frown.gif

Anyway, have you tried removing the heatsinks that you installed with thermal glue?

I have not had the need to do so yet, so unfortunately I cannot speak to how readily they come off.
