Big Thermal Pads

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
anyone know where i can find some large thick thermal pads like they use on ramsinks? i know they aren't all that efficient, but i have a heatsink lying around that would nicely cover the gpu and ram on the rear side of my graphcs card. obviously i cant just drop a piece of aluminium onto the circuit board, so i'm in need of some sort of decent thermally conductive insulator.

any ideas?

MX-1 with a little superglue. 0% conductive, better performing than AS5.

Have you tried this? Superglue is not thermally conductive and is permenant. Arctic Ceramique Adhesive would probably be better.

definitely not looking for permanent adhesion. could i be certain that the heatsink was never going to cause a short using ceramique? i know it's non conductive, but bear in mind id'd be applying it directly onto the circuit board...

the amount of glue used determines the strength of the bond, obviously. AS adhesive's bond is just as permanent as pure superglue. mix it with normal AS5.
it'd be best if you did some testing with various mixtures before applying to hardware.
