Powergeek ~ Ya you are right, that would be problematic... but still possible if there was no other option (like drilling on the mobo).

Ya, drilling into the board... that doesnt sound like fun.

But what about the whole mixing thermal epoxy with thermal grease idea?

well epozy is pretty non conductive from what i know(i realize ur gonna mix with thermal grease) and its hold is also very strong so when u pull it up ur probobly gonna rip the chip of its socket solder and all

but if u go that route ur gonna need to keep a few heavy books ontop of that heatsink while the epoxy cures

Personally, I mix elmers glue with my normal thermal tape, it seems to work well, but I've never tried doing it on something heacvy EG waterblock.
And it omes off easily, you just twist it off.

I used Arctic Silver Alumina thermal adhesive to hold on the individual RAM sinks on my GPU. My solution to the 'permanent' adhesive qualities of the stuff was to use 2 tiny dots of the adhesive on opposite corners of the RAM-sink then normal non-adhesive TIM in center.

This allows for removal of the chips simply by applying a little torque to the sink. However, some of the thermal adhesive will remain stuck to the surface of the chip (and the sink/block) even if the two are is separated. The stuff is damn sticky!

Anyway if you don't find a better solution, that might work for ya.
At long last...
