I had to order arctic alumina online, because no place in the area carries it....not even RadioShack, in fact RadioShack don't even carry thermal tape anymore.mad.gif

I haven't used Arctic Alumina, so i don't know how it fares in that. The ideal would be adhesive thermal tape, but Alumina may bond well. If you have troubles with Alumina, try Arctic Ceramique 2. It's very viscous and should stick. But you should always try not to touch the heatsinks again, as i don't think any thermal paste can make them stick steady as a rock. Best thing is, put paste, let it set in, run some cycles of heat up (like Prime) and cool down and don't ever touch them again. They will likely not fall off.

if the motherboard will be held vertically the simply thermal paste will not hold long
heatsink will fall, short-circuiting the below video card

so I hope you meant "Arctic Alumina Thermal Adhesive"
the bond is very strong
if you wish to remove later the heatsink someone suggested to mix also some normal thermal paste

Yes I meant Arctic alumina thermal adhesive. I have used it many times to Heat sink mosfets on video cards, and to pot led drop ins. It works well. When you remove the heat sinks from the mosfets of an old video card, it always pulls the mosfet with it. I have had issues with thermal tape staying stuck, never an issue with Arctic Alumina, but once used, it is permanent, and cannot be removed without destroying the electronics.
As I said before, I really don't care about this mobo, it is just temporary. After it dies, I will pull those heat sinks back off, sand them down, and use them again, and I guarantee when I do that, this mobo will never work again.

I also found out last night that adding vrm cooling fans is not probable, because my Enermax takes up way too much room. This is what I'm looking at.

Arctic Alumina sticks like a rock...in fact when you try to remove heat sinks stuck with it, it always causes the breakage of the electronics removed from...see image below. This is all fine if you come to terms with the fact it is permanent. The only down side I see, is once it's mixed...you only have two or three minutes to get everything into position, before it's hardening. I will have to mix small batches and do one set of mosfets at a time. From the looks of these heat sinks, I need to use a lot less.

I will take pictures of the process, and post them, along with the finished product. It looks like it will be a week before the thermal adhesive comes in, so until then. Now, I have to chisel these mosfets off the heat sinks, and sand them down.
