Where to get good quality doubled sided Thermal tape for GPU VRM's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My friend has a 980ti with a universal EK gpu block and wants to attach a 120mm fan to the card, but the needs some kind of strong or sticky double side thermal tape. He tried using a brand called
sekisui thermal tape but noticed that it did not adhere well the the material that the vrm's are made of a very shinny slippy material.

Any recommendations, would be most welcome.

Akasa ak-tt12-80 Thermal Adhesive Tape
https://www.amazon.com/Akasa-ak-tt12-80-Thermal-Adhesive-Tape/dp/B001GIM9V8

i dunno. i googled that one. i don't think the average joe or even a pc hobbyist can recommend stuff outside of their own purchase orders. In other words, i doubt people can offer comparisons on which thermal adhesive tape is the best. Just buy what you need but also consider reviews/pricing.

seems to be a number of brands - i don't know which is good or bad. #yolo

If you want to get sticky, the Alphacool adhesive pads are very sticky and thermally kinda meh at 1 W/m°K (Which better than most tapes that are < 1 W/m°K).

Probably the best 'permanent' solution is a thermal epoxy like Arctic Alumina or Arctic Silver Adhesive with 7.5 W/m°K performance. Keep the conductive Silver off the fine conductors tho.
