Also, is there a thermal glue that could be used to mount DIY heatsinks? Or is the glue's conductivity too low to make it worthwhile?
In case you 're interested, i 've actually just ordered this, in the 1mm variety for an Asrock 970 Extreme3 i have, from which i have removed the pad (damn curiosity to see the mosfets) and have it on Arctic Ceramique for now.
Although here i didn't have much choice. It was the only one the shop had.
But the thermal conductivity is on par with that of pastes, so it should be good enough. I will probably install it in a month or so, too bored in this period. I am not sure i chose the right thickness, but i figured 1 mm should be OK...
If you consider the UD3P flexible, you haven't seen the Asrock 970 extreme3.
When you install the 24 pin power plug, if you don't put your finger underneath to support the PCB, you can almost touch the bottom of the case with the edge of the PCB while it bends.Edited by Undervolter - 1/31/16 at 12:52pm
